My son just turned 2 at the end of December. He still uses a pacifier when he naps and at night. He just had a dentist appointment and the dentist said he has a overbite and if we take away the pacifier it will correct itself on its own. Now what upset me was the dental assistant. She tried to lecture me on how to whine my son off it. I Did this with my son. My son this. Blah blah blah. I understand its not the best thing for his teeth but she doesn't know why he can't not sleep with it.
My son had reflux from 1 month until almost 10 months old and his pacifier was his safety. It would literally prevent him from throwing up which would cause him pain because it happened so often. I have gotten him to only use it for nap and bedtime which was when he would freak out the most when he would throw up.
So I guess my question is, how long was you son/daughter with a pacifier and how did you decide as their mother to take it away?
thanks in advance ladies!!
