My dd is turned 3 a couple of weeks ago, and she still uses a pacifier to help her sleep, which so far isn't a big deal to me. I thought it would be a good time to start phasing out the pacifier, but now I'm not too sure. We are currently working on potty training, I took away the sippy cups just before she turned 3, and now we are getting ready to move cross country in September. I feel that taking her pacifier (which she uses for comfort at nap/bedtime) at this point is just too much for her to handle.
Any advice? The reason I ask is because she's lost all but two of her pacifiers and it's getting frustrating for me to keep searching for them. :-)
**Yes I know, she's too old for the pacifier, they will mess up her teeth, etc.

I'd wait. She doesn't have permanent teeth yet and is dealing with lots of other things given potty training and the up coming move. Don't be surprised if she regresses with toileting when you move.
