Find me on most of the social spaces as Mrs. Flinger
In an effort to launch something in a very short timeframe, after three months of coding in off hours for stints of a few minutes at a time, I used a framework to get *something* out. This is not code I would use for a client. Ever.
In fact, if you could see my face right now, you'd realize this is a little more than painful.
But, as sometimes has to happen with personal projects, the non-paying personal site takes a backseat to quality and gets dressed in handmedown code. Thanks to VMcore for the free ride here.
What is a binkitini? The martini for mamas while their child is weaning?
Good luck and stock up on the alcohol!
It’ll get better. Eventually.
Ds one day (about 18mo) decided he didn’t want a pacifier anymore. He’d throw them down the stairs, into the sink, into the garbage, into the speakers, under the bed, anywhere away from him. It took a week, maybe two of tantrums before he got back to semi-normal. And dh was worried about weaning ds from the pacifier - ds did it himself.
Oh, no… I wish I were there to join you in a binkitini, Mrs. Flinger!!! I don’t know if it’ll do the same trick, but if she absolutely must have something to stick in her mouth at bedtime, you might try something called a “teething orb”. I found one at Target (Yeah!LOVE Target!) in the baby section with all the other chew toys. It’s a brigthly colored ball with different colored/textured points sticking off of it… all for chewing and gumming on. It’s big enough that it can’t be swallowed, and tough enough that the tips can’t be bitten off. Why do I know this, you ask? Because I’ve used it with an older kid (like 9 years old) as a therapy tool (very often brain injured kids - who can’t eat the old fashioned way for a while or forever due to swallowing problems - stll need that oral motor stimulus to help them learn to manage their saliva. Or they need something to chew on so they won’t clench/grind their teeth). The teething orb worked fabulously!
God be with you, my friend. May she find comfort in the monkey and you in the bottle.
the binkitini huh?
maybe TWO monkeys will get her through this…
binkiti? You know I’m in!
we just did it a few weeks ago, at 2.5 years exactly. I was so worried and it was so EASY! We put them outside on the porch for the other babies that need them to come and get them, and in return he got a curious george stuffed animal. He only cried during the first nap for 5 minutes. I just kept hugging him and telling him they were all gone now, and he was so nice to give them to the babies who need them. Day 2 he asked once. I could tell he was a little out of sorts and that was it. And this kid was ADDICTED!!! Although he is about a year or so older, which may make it easier or harder? That’s questionable. Good luck.
