Yea, my two year old is addicted to it day and night! She spits it out when she falls asleep though. But the entire day she only goes 1-2 hrs. without it, then "notices" something is missing. Argh! I'm dreading the day as well. Maybe you and your SO will have better luck next time. Sucking on the pacifier (esp. if they do it all day), is hard to quit. You can limit use by sticking with bedtime and naps. NOWHERE ELSE-not even outside or in other parts of the house. Then slowly, you can try getting her to go without it for naps, then move to bedtime. I'm too chicken to do this, I'll just do it cold turkey and throw them out. Hopefully Grandma & Gramps won't buy more. (They've said this before when we lost all the passies, but then they went to the pharmacy and got more). If anything set a date on the calender with a cute sticker that he/she picks out, and tell them that's when they become "big girls/boys" and no more pacifiers!
