Mommy Must Haves

Lily Pacifier Weaning System

Toddlers can get really attached to their pacifiers. The Lily Pacifier Weaning System can help you break the habit. The system comes with a series of pacifiers that decrease in nipple length. As they get smaller the satisfaction the child gets decreases as well, until your baby no longer wants to use it. The system was also created to satisfy the recommendations of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry. $21.99. amazon.com
