Before you kick off our 7-day plan, be sure it's a good time for your child. Don't try to end the paci habit right before a vacation, the week that preschool begins, during a move, just as you're bringing home newborn twins and definitely not the holidays. ("Your kid's schedule is probably going to be thrown off at this busy time of year, plus she may be distracted by all the extra people tramping through the house," reminds Dr. Asta.) Instead, pick a time when she's healthy, sleeping well and things seem to be relatively calm at home.
