my daughter is 16 months old and still wakes in the middle of the night and screams if she cant find her nuk...other than that, she's a perfect sleeper. she also wants it sparatically throughout the day.
i've been trying to ween her off gradually but it's not working. my original thought was to take it away when she started getting teeth (which was only a month ago) but, i'm wondering, is it shame on me for letting her use it too long or i can let her hold onto it for a few more months?
when did you take your child's nuk away? 3months, 1year, when they start getting teeth? what was your milestone and why did you take it away at that time?
please only respond if your child also used a nuk, i'm looking for actual experience not just what it says in the books :)

It's perfectly fine for a child to use a pacifier until they are 3 or 4. It's normal for kids to nurse when they are that old. It's not fair to give a pacifier when it makes life easier for you and then take it away for your personal bias.
