Break the Pacifier Habit with Difrax!

My son loves pacifiers. Our 3 year old never really cared for the paci (she’s a thumb baby) but my 20-month old son is an addict. So when I was offered the chance to try out the Difrax pacifer I thought it sounded right up our alley! I received 2 18 month+ Difrax pacifiers. They look like other pacifiers, but I was surprised to find the nipple (I guess that’s what you call it?) was a lot harder than standard pacifiers. It is more like a teether, really. N eagerly put it in his mouth the first time, only to pull it out to examine it with a furrowed brow.

From what I understand, the Difrax pacifier system can help break your child from the pracifer habit. And if your kids seems just as happy to suck on this orthodontic pacifier (mine likes whatever he can get) at least it’s better for their teeth by working their mouth muscles more.

My son will still grab any pacifier he can get ahold of, but soon these will be the only ones I allow him to have. I hope to have him completely off by the time he turns 2 in a few months. 

 Do you have any tips for breaking the pacifier habit?

    How did these pacifiers do for weaning your son off pacifiers? My son is 22 months and biting through all his binkys so I’m considering getting him these ones if they will help….

      These are definitely harder to bite through. It’s more like a teether than paci material. My son would take these if the other kind wasn’t available, but you could tell he wasn’t as comfortable with it. We finally just started hiding the pacifiers around when he turned 2. If he found one, he’d put it in his mouth, but he didn’t ask for them. Every kid is different though.
