A binky and some duct tape
Peanut isn't all that attached to the binky but we almost always use it when it's time for bed or a nap. It's really fantastic as it works almost immediately. The binky goes in and the eyes begin to droop.
We also use it when we put him in the dreaded Torture Device otherwise known as The Car Seat.
Except Peanut hasn't mastered the art of keeping it in his mouth. He sucks for a while, gets distracted it falls out of his mouth. Or he is chewing on it. Or he has discovered his tongue and their just isn't room for both the tongue and the binky.
All of this would be fine if he didn't actually want you to hold the binky is his mouth for him. You could also just put it back every other minute if you like.
Over and over and over. Once he falls asleep or settles down and the binky falls out it's not an issue but until then...
I was thinking of using some kind of duct tape to secure it to his face.
Don't tell social services.
