If you follow me on Instagram, you probably saw that we recently got rid of bottles. Yes, my daughter is pushing 2 and a half, and yes she was still taking a bottle. But to my defense, it was only at night and at naps when she wasn't at daycare. She doesn't take a pacifier, and hasn't since she was probably a year old. For us, pacifiers weren't hard to lose, but bottles on the other hand were. Ever since she was an infant, she has wanted a bottle and a necklace (on me) at night, so it was just her way of winding down, and honestly it was just a faster way to get her to fall asleep.
I knew at some point, hopefully sooner than later, that the bottle would have to go. So I saw something on Pinterest about the Paci Fairy. The idea was that you would have your child gather up all the pacifiers in the house, put them in a bag, and leave them on the front porch for the Paci Fairy to pick them up. The next morning, the Paci Fairy would leave a special surprise for the child. Somewhat like the tooth fairy.
I thought well if this works for pacifiers, then surely it would work for bottles. I mean what the heck, what do I have to lose?
While Taylor was away with her MamMaw I devised a plan...
