  • It's a good idea to loose it at 1 year the same with a bottle. at this stage, they don't want it to interfere with tooth development and placement.

  • That's up to you when you want them to be gone.

    We lost them at 13 months, 10 months and 4 months for various reasons.

  • personally it drives me crazy to see 2 and 3 yr olds walking around with a pacifier. at that point its just a habit, not a necessity.
    My son is 9months and we're goin on 4 days without! yay...i'm not saying you have to do it the same as i do. i just got sick of looking for them over an hour and a half. lol so we made it through the first night, then i found two of them.....grr.....but i just figured if we could do it 3 days without much fuss we can make it, and its just one more thing outta the way. so far so good.

  • I would say about 1yr. I'm with AmandaN1 I don't think it's cute when 2 or 3 year olds walk around with it. My daughter stopped wanting it when she was around 7-8 months she's almost 10 months and she's been doing good.
