Project ChutChut-less : Day 1

It's time to change this guy from being like this

jaydenhandsomewithchutchut

to this!

jaydenhandsomewithoutchutchut

No, not making him to be senget like this! We're making him chut chut-less!

Last night was the first night. He had his final round of "Chutting" at his nanny's house. When we got back I just decided to hide it (the chutchut) for a while and see how it will turn up. He was okay at first but then when it reaches 9pm, he started to act weird. Like as though he was looking for something. Big C asked me so many times "are you sure? are you sure?" *sigh* His dadi pity his son, said that Jayden might be sad or feel sad without his chutchut. What to do? We need to start somewhere/sometime right?

So we distracted him with blocks! But his mouth was like "programmed" to have a hole in the middle as though he was sucking his chutchut. Look at this pic! *lol* But he was drooling pretty badly so we gotto put a bib around his neck.

And then he went to bed after watching his many rounds of Barney without any fuss *phew!*

Towards middle of the night at around 3am, he woke up crying and his hands were everywhere, looking for his chutchut. I carried him to our bed and he slept not long after that.

This morning, I gave him his milk while we was sleeping and right after the last sip, he looked for his chutchut again. Failed to look for it, he went back to sleep.*yay-for now*

Nanny was happier than me when I asked her not to give him chutchut for today and see how things go. So, gotto wait till tonight to see how far did we go in this ChuChut-less project! *fingers crossed*

  20. U should try this method. Worked with both my kids. First, cut of the tip of the chut-chut and let them suck it. Then slowly cut some more and then some more. As the chut-chut gets shorter, they don't get the thrill anymore and give up.
