What age is okay for a child to still be on a binky, pacifer.. whatever you want to call it?.. I hate seeing kids over 2 with those things in their mouth.

My daughter used one until she was 2 but only for naps/sleeptime.  Never was allowed (or wanted to) walk around with it.

My son had his until a few weeks after he turned 2. I had taken it away right before he turned 2. When he had to get stitches in his eyelid he was screaming for his binky so the ER drs said to give it to him so they could do the stitches easier. It was a comfort thing for him while his stitches healed and then even harder to take away. :/

That drives me insane. I try not to be judgy but I think anything beyond two is ridiculous.

At 1, I only let my kids have their pacifier when they were going to bed. They couldn't use it out of the house (I may have started that a little before 1).

Once they were potty trained, I didn't let them use it at all.

My daughter will be 3 next week and still has one. Tried to take it away and she started to put her thumb in her mouth. Pipi is better than a thumb. The dentist said around 3 and a half is when to stop. You can take away the pipi but you cant take away the thumb.
