Help a mom out! Maybe win a prize!
Michele is a sweet lady who is seeking your advice. She happens to be wife of the man who owns One2Believe, a Bible-based toy company that makes the P31 dolls occasionally advertised here. But Michele is also a mom and here is what she writes:
My daughter Hope is 5 1/2 months old. We recently took away her pacifier because we were getting up 30-40 times a night to plug it back in. Plus every time we gave it to her she just spat it out. Now she is having a tough time going down for naps and when she wakes up in the middle of the night, she is having a hard time going back to sleep.
We tried giving back the pacifier but she doesn’t want it. We tried a blanket, a lovey, and even her own fingers, but she doesn’t want any of them. She sucks on her bib during the day, but I can’t let her wear that at nap time or bed time for fear of strangling herself. So my question is … Do you know of anything (besides a pacifier since she doesn’t like it) to let her suck on or some other way to help her go to sleep?
To make things interesting, Michele has offered a prize to the commenter whose idea works best: your choice of P31 doll, Messengers of Faith doll, or any of the Bible figurine sets. Since I am brain dead from having spent last night up with my own wakeful baby, I’ll just step aside and let you all share the wealth of your wisdom. Happy helping and good luck!
