For the last month or so, we've told dd (2.5yo) that when Santa comes, she can leave her paci for him and he'll leave presents for her. So that night she went to bed without her paci and fell asleep just fine. The first few days without it she would ask about it once or twice and we reminded her that she gave it to Santa and she was like "Oh yeah." and was fine. Well, the last 3 or 4 days have been awful. She won't take a nap, even driving in the car won't help her fall asleep. Last night she went to bed and woke up 10 mins later crying/screaming for her paci. I finally let her fall asleep on the couch and moved her to her bed. Tonight, dh picked her up from the sitter, and she just cried and screamed that she didn't want to leave. I know it had to be because she was tired and didn't get a nap. We've gone this long without the paci and I really don't want to give it back, but I hate that she gets so upset because she's tired. Any ideas/suggestions?
