Default Lanyard and Pacifier

Need support
This morning a parent reminded me that two of her lanyards were broken here. We were discussing the paci that she left the following day (of course it’s my fault she forgot it).
I’m going to text her and say, “I have a paci here that I will use going forward, please leave Kelly’s at home.”
Is this mean? Do I really need to explain this?

I would add “to avoid breaking yours” just to let her know why. Nothing mean about what you are saying at all. Just erecting a boundary.

I don't even allow lanyards, they fall under the jewelry and toys from home section of my contract. I don't want to create a habit by convincing a child they need it.

Paci's must be able to go into the dishwasher after naptime, so it really isn't debatable. Paci's are only allowed in cribs here and I start weaning day one. I would not allow one back and forth from home, illness transmission risk.

"Please leave one pacifier here for daycare use. Thanks in advance."
- Unless otherwise stated, all my posts are personal opinion and worth what you paid for them.

Yep, no lanyards, clips or anything else. Just leave me one paci here and be done. Then I work the child off of the paci while they are here.

My pet peeve... a paci that is tethered to a child. That’s unsafe and nasty

Yeah, just keep one with you, no lanyard. I only give them at nap times if needed so I don't have to worry about them getting lost or the wrong mouth getting on it.

Add what Ariana said and you're good!
