He has had a cold the past few days, and being stuffed up has made it difficult for him to keep his sucker in his mouth and breathe at the same time. I realized this today when we were in the car, and he was tired, threw his sucker on the seat, and then fell asleep within 5 minutes.
So, I decided that it was time to get rid of it. He's already gone a couple days, really, but he still had access to it.
Well, I put him to bed tonight without it, and he hardly made a sound, but was asleep within minutes!
I am praying that it continues to be this easy!
