Yesterday I decided to cut the tip off DSs dummy. Hes 21 months and so attached to it. We cut back to nnaps and nights only a few months back. Because the hole in his dummy he now cant suck even tho we give it to him when he asks. He looked at it n said "broken" then he tossed it thru the room. He made it thru naps and a reasonable night without it tho but it takes him a while to wind down now.
But yeah i feel guilty for taking away his one comfort cuz he doesn't have a blankie or teddy. I offered them but he always rejected loveys.
when every once in a while he asks for it and he sees my 12 week old DD suck away on hers and i feel so bad for him.
