For moms who used pacifier/binky how.old was your child when they stopped using it? How did you get them to not use it? My DD is 15 months and she was my first baby so I have no clue how to get her to stop using a binky. She refuses to sleep without it she will just sit and scream for hours if she doesn't have it. I've tried putting lemon juice on it and that didn't even stop her and I've tried just taking it but she will scream and scream until she makes herself sick. Advice please?

3-4 months TOPS.
Put them or have her put them in garbage bag and throw them in the garbage can. You have to go "cold turkey". You will have a rough few days ......perhaps a few weeeks

My middle daughter was 2.
we lost them and didnt bother looking for them. Told her they were gone and dealt with the screaming til she eventually gave up asking for it.

took 2 or 3 nights and she was done.

my son stopped using it on his own at about 3months old... maybe a little bit earlier.

For starters, keep it in the bed. She shouldnt have it other than sleep times.
When you do get rid of it, some suggest clipping the tip off so child thinks they are broken. We went cold turkey.

 I was the luckiest mom on earth with my first.  She was extremely attached to it, wouldn't go to sleep without it--till 8 months when she suddenly would scream if it got anywhere near her.  By 9 months we figured out it was an ear infection.  I hid all the pacifiers and never looked back.  Now?  My 16 month old still has hers!  I'm going crazy trying to break her of it but she just in the last 4 days got tooth #7 & 8 and is acting like there are more.  It really helps with her fussiness and saves me when I'm trying to cook supper and she suddenly wants to nurse.

Also... she knew she had to hand it over when she woke up and I'd give ot back at naptime or bedtime. But she wasn't allowed it during the day.
