Nuks, binkies, pacis, etc

End of april, early may, can't remember, DD was weaned from her nuk... about 22 mos old. She'll be 2 on the 19th and the last couple days, she has been INSISTANT about wanting her nuk back. She hasn't even asked for it in a couple of months. I don't even have any nuks to give her anymore and I don't think it'd be right to let her wean then go back to it anyways. Any idea why she would be doing this suddenly? There have been no changes in the house or routine or anything.

She's a kiddo....she'll get past it. I recommened distracting her when she starts asking for it...as well as maybe trying to introduce her to some other sort of lovie...like a baby/stuffed animal, pillow or blanket.

Toddlers remember a lot more than we give them credit for. It doesn't necessarily mean that she has any kind of transitional issue going on, though it can. I had this with several of mine; just told them that the pacis weren't here any more, and helped them come up with a big-kid alternative instead. Good luck!

same reason some children want to re breastfeed months later. I think she's old enough to just keep it gone like you have been but shes either just remembering or seeing other kids with it. Nothing to be worried about

my 5 month old uses nuks now, but that didn't seem to bother her until just recently. I bought a new nuk last night and she screamed and cried because it wasnt for her.

Aww, I feel bad for both of you! Rough night...

Can you buy her a special "big-girl" item for sleeptime? Maybe let her choose from within a limited price range.
