  • When they don't have a bottle anymore my kids dont need a paci either. They get the bottle thrown away at 12 months

  • I can only say what I did. My first two daughters only got it until they were 5 months old. My son didn't get it at all.

  • I have had 5 kids, only 1 of which ever NEEDED a pacifier. He is 16 months and we have no intention of getting rid f it. Before I had a child who needed one, I thought 12 months was the very latest. Now that I have been there, I understand that one fix is not ok for every child or family. He still needs his binky. When he doesn't need it anymore, we will get rid of it.

  • all 3 of my girls gave it up around 4-5 months. after that I was afraid it would be too hard to get them to give it up. At this age they don't remember things for very long so after a day or two they forgot about it and things were fine.

  • 9 to 10 months old. The earlier the easier it is to rid of it.
