Thalia - Thalia Releasing Her First Children's Book To Help Parents

Singer Thalia is dishing out motherly advice in her first children's book, which is due out this month (Nov13).

The mother-of-two is hoping she can help mums and dads wean their kids off pacifiers in the story of Chupi, which is inspired by her experience with her own daughter, Sabrina.

She tells U.S. breakfast show Today, "I didn't want to see her cry. It was drama... so I started adding two pacifiers in the crib because when she would fall asleep the pacifier would fall out and she would cry. So every 40 minutes you have to go to the crib and put the pacifier back in their mouth. I ended up with 20 pacifiers in the crib and it was crazy."

Thalia decided to tell her daughter a story to help her stop using the pacifier.

She continues, "It was like divine intervention and it was the desperate call of a mother at 3am... The baby was crying, I couldn't find the paci (pacifier) and I took the paci and I was like, 'Do you know why paci's sad? Paci's falling off your lips because paci misses her mommy. Pacifier wants to go home to binky (pacifier) land and she was like, 'Binky land?' and I said, 'Yes, she lives in a castle made of caramel and also mommy misses the binky... Imagine me and you apart, Sabrina, you and me apart would be terrible'.

"She said, 'Take binky to binky land...,' and then I created the five steps that are in the book... The most important are the five steps to help your kid getting rid of this habit (sic). You know what I think? It's like the first experience of letting go. As a human being it's very difficult to let go, so for a baby it's terrible..."
