Not sure question
Melissa- Are you yourself using these items, or are you using them on your baby? If it's you, it's just years of having these things as your way of calming.
Some people eat, some smoke, some drink. You use sucking to calm. Try starting a new habit as you gradually break the old - for instance, while sucking the pacifier
, have gum in your mouth as well. Brain will start to replace the old with new.
