Transition Time For Children
It's wonderful when a pacifier soothes your fussy baby. But did you ever dream the binky would become your child's best friend? Listen as we discuss the many transitions that children go through and how to soothe them as they learn to soothe themselves. We will offer the doctor's best advice on giving up the pacifier - how, when, and why, and the many other "transitions" in infancy and toddlerhood, such as giving up the bottle, transitioning to a cup, and moving from crib to a bed.
