My dd is almost 18 months old and has had a pacifier since the day she was born. She recently started putting the entire thing in her mouth. Her dad and I pull it out whenever we see it. When would be a good time to break her of using a pacifier and how? Her cousin broke herself of the pacifier by her first birthday. I was hoping dd would do the same. I was also thinking of just waiting till she lost them all, she only has 2 left. If your lo used a pacifier how did you break them of it?
*Update: Thank you so much for all your suggestions and advice. I think I'm just going to take the last 2 and hide them for now. I know there will be an adjustment period but I want her off the pacifier before she goes into a toddler bed (which is happening when we can get a second gate so her only option is her room or our room). I'll update again at the end of the week with how she's doing without the pacifier.
