Binky Withdrawals

It's been 4 days since we threw out Liberty's binky.  It seems like every other night Libbs does ok, and the other nights she just can't seem to get over the attachment.  Tonight she went to bed alright, but so far she has been up twice crying.  The last time she was screaming and crying and would not calm down.  This is made even more frustrating by the fact that all four of us share a room...which means Liberty's screaming could potentially wake up Leila.  Leila did wake up tonight, but thankfully she went right back to sleep.  She's pretty used to hearing Libbs, I guess.  All I have to say is, I hope this ends soon!  Does anyone have any tips on how to get Libbs to calm down when she does wake up really upset?  Or how to somehow replace the binky.  I keep encouraging her to pick baby dolls (her favorite toy) to take to bed with her, and she does, but they don't seem to help during the night.  I think if she had her own room I wouldn't be so concerned about it, but with Leila in there, and us too, it's harder.  I know it's only been four days, and she has had a couple of good nights, but it is still frustrating and upsetting to hear her so upset in there.

On another note, Jonathan started his job last night but he isn't really getting any fact he doesn't have a set time for his next work day.  Please keep us in your prayers in the job department!

so wishing i had some wise words of advice. all i can say is...remember, this too shall pass! it must be so hard with all of you in the same room. i would say that perhaps some of the consistency in discipline you were talking about in your comment might help to nip this in the bud, so to speak. definitely praying you have a restful night (as for me..i just can't here i am leaving comments on your blog after midnight!).
