When I first became a parent I was intent on not using a pacifier. When we ended up using a pacifier for bed time, naps and car rides. Now at a year old I am ready for us to end the habit. After an ear infection scare I found this article and thought that I would share it. Thankfully, my son has attached to a Snoopy plushy and we will work on making the Pacifier to Snoopy transition. I know it will be rough for a while but I think it is for the best.
