So, my dh picked ss up from bm the other night, after he was asleep. He walked in and got him and realized he had a pacifier in his mouth. He doesn't use one at our house. He doesn't ask for one, or need one. We didn't even know he used one there. I looked some things up on the subject and noticed a lot about psychological problems being linked. Does anyone else find this odd? I'm the type of mom, aunt, etc that never gave them, so I was just wondering about other moms opinions

My son sucks his thumb and he is 9, but not a pacifier that's just wrong.

Your husband needs to aks bio mom why he is using a pacifier at his age.  The therapist needs to know about it as well.  If he needs one at his mother's then something isn't right at his mother's home.

9 yrs old? That is nuts! I hate seeing kids with them at 3 years. When my daughter turned a year we took her passy away. She fussed a bit at night for about 3 days. A week after we did that we took bottle away. She really didn't need or use either much by 12 months. So it was easy. I think alot of it is so moms can "keep them babies". They have to grow up and your not helping by letting them continue.

 I had a friend who kept her paci and security blanket til she was like 12. It seriously messed up her teeth and she had to have major orthadontic work. I gave DS a paci very reluctantly but he was an early teether and was teething before he could grasp teething rings and such. He gave his up on his own around 7 months, he got a cold and stuffy nose. Refused to take it because he couldn't breathe with it, we never gave it back after that.

I still have my teddy from when I was small and my daughter still has her stuffed dog from when she was a baby.  My bear is no 56 years old...my daughter's dog is almost 27 years old.  I intend to have mine with me when I'm cremated

A snuggle blanket or animal is one thing, a paci is another.
