Season 2 Episode 5 | Waving bye-bye to the pacifier

Welcome to Season 2 of The Moms on Call Podcast! We hope you love our brand-new show format designed to be short, sweet and full of trusted information from pediatric experts.

This season, we are going in-depth with answers to your questions. If you have anything you want to ask, please leave us a message at 888-234-7979.

How do you know when it's time for your little one to give up the pacifier? And how do you do it? Thank you to Caroline, who lives in Atlanta, Georgia for asking about this very common topic.

My son is 14 months old, he's a sweet boy and he is obsessed with his paci. He carries it around everywhere, he holds it with one hand while he eats. I told myself we would make him give it up when he turned one, but he loves it so much I haven't been able to do it. Do you have any tips for getting rid of the pacifier?

We also had time for two bonus questions:

From Brianna in Nashville: I've got a 13 week old darling little girl, and we recently did our three night sleeping through the night protocol and it went pretty well. And then we went out of town and we have not been sleeping through the night since we got back. How do we get back on track so she can be getting those full nights of sleep, and mommy can too.

From Brooke in Virginia: I have six kiddos and my oldest is adopted, and then I have two foster kiddos on the tail end that are one and two. And the one year old will not nap. It almost seems as if she has trauma attached to nap time because she will sleep through the night. And I've tried lots of different things, but I'm wondering if you guys can help.
