Rule at the Kirwan house is once you turn '1' there is no more bottles or pacifiers. Well with Nathan he got a bottle at nap time and before bed time, but with Morgan we just cut it cold turkey and never had a problem...she caught on really quickly!! She looks very pleased with herself. As for the pacifier we got lucky as Nathan adjusted without a problem to the 'no pacifier rule'...lol. Morgan never used one...BUT she is a thumb sucker. Usually it only comes out when she is tired and ready for a nap or bed. Gonna be harder to take the thumb away...lol!!
