When I tucked her into bed, Delightful Finch shivered and asked, "Mommy, will you take care of me?" She said that a LOT during her night terrors episode. (This makes me think she does remember the experience.)
Binkys are weird at my house. Finch (age 3) is usually not allowed to have a binky. Angel (22 months) is still firmly attached to her binky - esp when something sad happens. We try to encourage Seraph (22 months) to play with a binky. She mostly chews on it, but sometimes she sucks. She needs to develop those binky-sucking muscles more.
Finch often steals a binky from one of the twins. Sometimes she takes it out if I catch her with it. Sometimes she drops it into her hand and then hides in the cabinets under the sink so she can suck on her stolen binky in peace.
I decided I'd rather have her regress to binkys at night than have more night terrors. Binkys make her feel safe. I'll steal it away again in a month or so ;)
