We stopped giving her the pacifier during the day since December last year but she still needed to suck on it in order to go to bed at night.
I have been thinking of ways to wean her off (her pacifier), because she is the type who would wake up in the middle of the night and cry for her pacifier.
|This was the time Khayla was busy scrunching up a wedding card, but immediately dozed off once her pacifier was in her mouth. :p|
On Friday night, Khayla had trouble going to bed and staying asleep as she was in pain from her two molars cutting through her gums. Poor baby couldn't even drink water without screaming. All three of us had very little sleep that night.
Mr Sunshine and I had already planned to go to Port Dickson that following Saturday so we thought hard on whether we should carry on with the plan since all three of us are exhausted and Khayla was in pain. We decided to go.
Mr. Sunshine bought a tube of teething gel from a nearby pharmacy just in case.
We brought along a thick comforter just in case the hotel didn't provide a baby cot in which they did but I thought the mattress was too hard and was a tad too small for the cot, so we decided to let Khayla sleep on the comforter.
The funny thing is, as soon as I laid the comforter on the hotel room carpet, Khayla started rolling around on it as if she knew it was her 'bed', hehe. Syukur Alhamdulillah, after a few minutes of rolling around on the comforter, she dozed off on her own, without her pacifier !
She stayed asleep throughout the night too ! I guess she loved the air conditioned room. :)
I hid her pacifier again the following night. And Alhamdulillah she slept on her own throughout the night again. :D
Khayla was cranky throughout the whole trip but she was manageable. :)
I am glad I didn't have to use the teething gel.
I did the same when we got back to Shah Alam. Khayla did wake up crying but it was because she was feeling hot (she was all sweaty). Amboi baru tidur two nights in a hotel room dah tak boleh tidur bawah kipas ! Hehe. Fortunately she didn't need her pacifier to go back to sleep. :)
I really hope this continues and that I can throw out her soother soon !
Next mission is to pierce her ears ! InshaAllah.
