My daughter started to get a gap in her front teeth and I think it was from the paci. I warned my husband that I was taking them away and we just did it, cold turkey! Once she got through the 3 day hump she was fine... but, oh, it was a bad 3 days... lots of whining and crying. Just resist the urge to give them to him. Pick a time when you have nothing going on that way the routine is pretty normal and he doesn't have a reason to really need it. Also, I started to give my daughter a dolly when she goes to sleep so she hugs her dolly in her crib.
