I'm sorry, I have no experience with this. My kids sleep in their own beds and pacifiers are taken away "cold turkey" around 12 months of age.

Here's a bump!

I took the pacifier away at 9 months when the first tooth came in.  First thing in the morning when they get up.....throw the pacifier away, dont let them see you do it. Don't get tempted to keep the pacifiers just in case. You dont wanna give in . Sure they will be crabby and may not want to sleep with out it. When they ask for it...say "you are a big boy/girl and you don't need them" or just a simple " the pacifier is gone" After the first night it should get easier for them.  I gave my daughter a small toy kitten to cuddle and she slept through the night. I know that was at 9 months but it should still work for you.  They may lose the cuddle toy in the middle of the night but the toy is easier to find. Tell them they have to stay in bed at night.  leave the bedroom door open until you are certain they are asleep and close it i that is better for you. I have a video monitor ...if my daughter 2yrs old. ...tries to get outta her toddler bed I say loud enough for her to hear...."Get back in that bed!" stern not yelling.  She climbs back into bed sometimes she will try again but not often.  Hope this helps. Good luck!!

Snip the tip of their paci's. A friend in my dd group did this. Her 2 yr old put it in his mouth and said "uhoh mommy.... binki broken". She said he went the rest of the day without even mentioning it. With my older son i took his "papa" away at 2. He was crying for it on the way into wal mart and i just looked at him and said "no more papa.... Jordan's too big!" We had a rough couple of days but they had made a rule at day care... no more paci's because the kids were just picking up any paci. So he was already used to taking naps without it.

 Mine would rather fall asleep with a boob in his mouth so he doesn"t really use a paci. BUMP

My 2yo sleeps best with me too and he HATES sleep. Wuts ironic tho is that I used to sleep 14 hrs a day when I was preggo. I never gave my boy a paci so I dunno maybe u could substitute it for a stuffed animal of a charecter they like. My boy loves his Mickey mouse and sometimes it helps..... Sometimes lol u definitely have UR hands full and wish u all the luck in the world :)

Take the binkis away. They will cry a couple days and then get over it. Or look up clever tricks online. I read one where you tie them to a balloon and watch them float away saying good bye and stuff.
