Nikki820 A good way I have seen was to start limiting the amount of time. With a friend's daughter. We reduced the time a little bit each day, leaving bedtime for the last time to get rid of it. She wasn't allowed to use it at day care, and we stopped buying them. So when we "lost" the last one, that was it, no more binkies.

This took about 6- 8 weeks to do, but worked...

Stink_Momma It won't mess up her teeth according to what I have seen. I think that happens with permanent teeth. And like everyone said she won't go to college with it. I wouldn't stress, she is still young. Does she have to have it in her mouth constantly or just when she is tired or grumpy? Brandon plays all day without his, it is just when he gets tired that he needs it and he uses it to fall asleep.

taraneric97 I tried to teach her to chew on the tip of a soft blanket instead and that didn't work. She did it for like a minute, then started crying for the binkie. I know it is not a bad thing. I just don't want her to have messed up teeth, and I would think it would get harder to stop as she gets older. I don't know!

Tara I wonder if giving her a toy, or stuffed animal instead when she wants the paci would distract her? Worth a shot. I wouldn't get to stressed over it yet, she wont go to college with a paci.

Stink_Momma Brandon still has his. I posted an article in Parenthood, I'll have to find the link, that says a binkie is not a bad thing. I will try and find the link....

*Aimee I have no idea. Kenzie just stopped wanting it when she was around 5-6 months old. Thank goodness. And then the next time she got one, she was like 8 month old or so (I think) and she chewed the rubber part up. Had pieces of rubber and was chewing on it like gum. She was in her stroller so I couldn't really see what she was doing, and my sister asked me what she had in her mouth. I was like her pasci. Nope it wasn't her whole pasci.

BeccaSueBoo I weaned Rachelle from hers when she was 14 months...she only needed it at night mostly anyway...I just didn't give it to her one night, and it went great! I hid it so she wouldn't ask for it.

taraneric97 I need some advice girls! My one year old is totally hooked on her binkie. We have already broken her of the bottle, which was really easy, but I just cannot get her to let go of her pacifier. Does anyone have some helpful hints or advice on the easiest way to do this?
