Is that a

3 year old horse, cat, dog, car? And what on earth is a 'BINKY'

A binky would be a pacifier for a human baby. A rubber or plastic device imitating nipple that goes into a baby’s mouth, used to calm and quiet the baby.

We used to place a wind-up musical box by my daughters bed and play it, by the time the wound spring was run down she would be asleep. Mind you we started when she was a baby so I feel 3 years a bit late to try new things. Mind you a bottle full of whiskey and water I reckon would do the trick. I mean for the baby not you Tera.

I'm trying to teach my Nan to suck eggs. But normally a child will cry for a reason. If the tot only cries at night he/she could be fraid of the dark or something he/she thinks is in the dark. have you tried talking to her/him when not crying to find out why.
