  • THROW IT AWAY! She'll cry at first, then she won't miss it. Getting rid of it now will be easier than doing so later.

  • I've heard that cutting the end off will cause them to not like it, so they'll give it up on their own. I personally think 4 months is a bit young, but that's totally up to you.

  • You should not take a pacifier away from a 4 month old at all. Pacifiers reduce the risk of SIDS in children from 0-12. The american academy of pediatrics also recommends that babies DO use a paci. They say that 90% of kids will stop using it on their own! Good luck whatever you decide!
