  • you just have to take them away and stand strong. It totally sucks for the first couple nights but that is only thing that will work at this pouint. just be careful thumb sucking doesn't start. I had a friend who told her dd that the "paci-fairy" needed all the pacifiers fopr new babies and that worked for her-but it still was hard. good luck.

  • throw it away and deal with the fits, they will pass, but you have to be strong and stand your ground on this one.

  • Take it and throw it in the trash! Hunt over the house and throw all of them away. She will get over it! It won't kill her. Just be strong!

  • Throw them away. It's that simple. Throw them away. The child will cry for a few days, and will forget about them.

  • He's 5. He is old enough for you to take it away, tell him no and he should listen. He is a big boy!
