TikToker Catherine (@chikidsfeeding) is a speech-language pathologist, feeding therapist, certified lactation counselor, and mom of 3 who frequently posts videos sharing childcare tips, tricks, and resources. Recently, Catherine shared a mind-blowing hack to help kids kick the pacifier habit.
In the video, Catherine demonstrates an effective method for “getting rid of that pesky pacifier.” The trick involves snipping off a bit from the top of the pacifier with a sharp pair of scissors.
Over time, she recommends gradually cutting off more of the pacifier until there’s barely any left at the bottom.
Catherine says your little one won’t be as satisfied by a pacifier with a hole in the top and will steadily lose interest.
The clever hack caused a wave of nostalgia amongst viewers and inspired them to share their own pacifier weaning stories.
