I do agree that it is not a problem for his teeth at this point, but having in in all day while he is awake can delay speech development. My pediatrician explained that a child with a pacifier in his mouth all day long did not get enough practice talking. He told me it was fine to let my babies use them in bed as long as they wanted, but around one year I needed to start limiting daytime use. Around one year we started only allowing pacifiers at bedtime, nap time, and in the car. I made it a point of hiding their pacifiers first thing in the morning (out of sight - out of mind). Around 18 to 20 months we stopped using them for naps and in the car, and then around 22 months we were able to ditch them all together without too much difficulty.
