My DS still has his and he is 17 months. I’m going to start weaning him off it when he turns 18 months. Maybe I should start now!

I also hate seeing kids 2+ with soothers. If you can talk to me, child, take that soother out of your mouth!

My plan was to wean my LO of his when he turned 1 year as I also don’t like seeing toddlers with soothers. But, he did it himself at 5 1/2 months. He just didn’t want it anymore.  🙂 Lucky me!

The only time my DD took a soother was for a couple months from age 2 months to 4 months…then she refused it! I kind of lucked out there I guess. No need to fight her for it when she`s older.

My mother told me that I was a holy terror when it came to trying to get me to give up my soother.. lol

I try not to judge other parents. 2 year olds do look silly with soothers, but meh. It’s not harming me any. lol

Kids are all different.  My doctor said they don’t really worry about pacifier use until the kids is older than 3, but we haven’t had to deal with this issue at all, since neither of my kids take pacifiers!  Occasionally they’d use it when they were very young, but by 8 weeks, both of them refused.  In the long term it was good (one less habit to break!) but there were sometimes I really wished they’d take a pacifier and stop crying, lol.

my DD turns 2 next month and is still going strong with her paci. i didn’t even want a paci baby, but i caved when the colic hit. it’s really been a lifesaver. then i planned to take it away when she turned 2. but she’s really prone to tantrums right now, so i’m putting it off a little more. now my goal is 2.5 and we will do something “special” for the transition. the babysitter takes it away during the day. she gets it for naps and bedtime, and in the car.
