DS just turned 3 and 5 months old and we finally dissed the Binky I won't go into all the details but overall it went well. It took a solid week before he completely forgot about it, 3 days to sleep through the night without crying for his binky, and about 5 days for him to nap again. My problem is this:
Suddenly he's waking up at night crying from nightmares, or bad dreams, or there not being enough light on in the room. He also started with wanting nearly all of the lights on in his room when he goes to bed or nap. He screams a lot at his brother too, especially when he wakes (they share a room), and he makes mischief until either my husband or I go in and break it up. Now suddenly he's telling us nobody likes him (going to post something about this separately). All of this in the just under two weeks of giving up his Binky.
He's always been a great sleeper (not a good napper), not without occasional bumps along the way though, but nothing like this. When he wakes up crying he genuinely wants comforting and doesn't mention the Binky at all.
I'm just curious what you might have experienced after your child let go of their Binky, and how long it took for things to go back to normal again (as if they ever really do).
