Sucker as we call it
Tessa is absolutely in love with her paci-fier/sucker, as she calls it. I had gotten it away from her during all waking hours and she's only been allowed to have it at night time and naps since she was about 18 months. Well, after dealing with fits for the past few months and sometimes out of control behavior, I thought I would try letting her have it. Amazingly, the child is so calm and almost fit free when she has it. I know there are a lot of opinions out there about toddlers with pacifiers, but I've decided to choose sanity and give in to the sucker at least for now. We don't give it to her at all times, but whenever I see any sort of distress and she asks for it, I go ahead and give it to her.
