 I was SEVEN before I gave mine up... I ONLY had it at bedtime..but.. Yeah.. FOREVER.

My kids never took to them, so luckily I never fought that battle with my own kiddos

Because they don't want to listen to their child cry for a few days if they made them give up the binky.

My brother took his until he was four or five...my sister was two years younger and he would actually take the pacifier out of her mouth and put it in his own. My parents kept taking them away,but he kept turning up with these pacifiers and my parents had no idea where he was getting them from until finally one day my grandmother was babysitting,she saw him snatch the pacifier from my sister and take off through the house...she followed him and he literally had a stash of pacifiers behind his bed. There was around 15 or 20,just tucked away back there....his own little secret supply.

My son is indifferent about his...he'll take it when he's sleepy or doesn't feel well but that's about it.

Well, oral fixations run rampant on BOTH sides of my girls' families. My ODD was 3 before she gave up her binky. Luckily it was an easy fix. She was ready. I was very ready for an uphill battle.

I'm nearly 29 years old and still suck my thumb. It is what it is.

I would not take something like that away. I feel we all have them things. I can't sleep without MY pillow. Even if I go away to a hotel I bring MY pillow, whats so weird about that alot of people do that right, so why is it not okay for kids? 


EDIT......... I read the post to fast lol I thought it said BLANKET........... I think kids having a binkie at 4 is just crazy, it's so bad for there teeth
