    my older daughter weaned herself off the paci at about 9 mo. she only used it when she slept anyway and I think she figured out that it made her sleepy LOL my younger daughter used her paci until about 3 mo after her 2nd bday. I had wanted to wean her off it, but her daddy was gone due to the Army, then we moved and I didn't have the heart to take away her security item. at that point, she only used it during naptime/bedtime, I didn't let her take it out of the house and didn't let her use it while playing. the night she stopped, we couldn't find one paci anywhere in the house and told her "I guess you just have to sleep without it!" she fussed for a minute, but then was fine =) so as I found pacis hidden around the house I quickly snuck them in the trash LOL

    Dropped the Binky cold turkey at 12mths. I hate children who can speak and are happy going around with a binky in their mouths.

    My daughter dropped the binky when she was 9 months. It's ill advised to have them on it when they're over 2 because they could start ruining their adult teeth if they're still doing it at 4. Same goes with thumbsucking. My daughter's a thumb sucker, but only when she's tired or upset

    KCornett actually hates kids that are happy to have binky's? Wow, anyways, my son turned two about 2 weeks ago, and he was litteraly dependant on his binky. My dad kept him for a week, and I didn't give them one for him, and he came home, and today would be the 5th or 6th day that he has not had one. He saw one yesterday, and I hurryed and hid it, and he has been fine since. I'm so proud of him! I thought I was gonna have a battle!

    My 2nd one stopped way before 2, but my first son had it a while longer. I would simply put it up when they dropped it and only give it to them when they asked. As for it impeding speech that always makes me laugh!! It's an old wives tale!! A pacifier has no affect on speech at all! Not only do I know this from a professional level, but also from experience! Both of my children have above normal speech levels and like I said my first son was at least 3 before he stopped using his!! Also, has anyone read the new research on pacifiers and SIDS prevention? I would recommend it to every mom with a little baby! The nurses at my hospital did and our news just did a report on it.
