  • the sooner the better! My 1st dd wouldnt take hers after 8 months, my second dd was attached hard though and we finally got her broke at 18 months, and my son (10 months) Hates binkies, and always has!

  • depends how old the baby is, if you can limit usage around 6 months it might be easier than trying it later - I don't really know because my son wouldn't take it liol!~

  • 1 year old.

    With each of our kids we rounded them all up the night before their first birthday and threw them all away. It was harder on us parents than the kids for a few days after. But, neither my husband nor I regret doing it. We both HATE seeing 2+ year old kids trying to talk around that darn plug.

  • my son was 11 months when we cut him of it - but we gradually made it there. it went from all day (baby), to just naps (around 6-7 months), then i would just put it in the crib with him and if he was interested, he'd have it. by 11 months i just stopped putting it in there and he stopped! i personally cant stand when i see 4 or 5 year olds with them STILL!!!!

  • my 17 month old takes hers still but only at nap and bedtime. she has never been one of those babies that walks around with it 24/7. i know she won't still need it to fall asleep in college, so as long as it's working for all of us i don't care how long she uses it to fall asleep. i refuse though to be one of those moms that allows my 6 year old to walk around with it at the store. my older daughters are 4 and 2 and both gave theirs up between 14-16 months.
