What ways have you tried transitioning her out of them?   I would do the giving to little babies by way of fairy and the fairy would bring a 3 yr old toy for her to take place of the pacifiers.  Once she loses one, it is gone even if you find it at a later date, it stays gone is another method.  Eventually she will learn how to keep track of her belongings or she will wean her self that way.   DD never took to pacifiers so these are suggestions i have seen others use for their children.

Yep, my daughter did the same thing. She was obsessed. She slept with one in her mouth and three or four tucked in next to her! What we did was snip a small piece of the "sucky" part off...and every week snip a little more. Finally, after the sucky part got almost all the way down to the paci, Peyton put it in her mouth, took it out and flung it on the floor and was done. Took about 3 weeks, but she let it go!!

Good luck!

Just take it away.  Cold turkey. Some rough days/nights ahead...but she will eventually stop asking.

You can slowly cut the tips off too. Take a little bit off. Next week take a little more. Eventually, they are just no fun anymore and the child gives them up willingly. Just do really small increments, and make sure to get all the pieces thrown away in the trash.

Sorry I do not know what to say. I took my sons away before he was one. This was my lan all along but when I saw he had bit a piece off I freaked out that he could choke. My son had a blanket though so it was not as bad a s I thought it was going to be. We statred with you only get it a sleep time. Then one night it was just not there for sleep.
