DS turned two recently and uses pacifier at nap and bed times (though he would take one during day if given opportunity). His pediatrician recommends to wean before new baby arrives so DS isn't taking baby's pacifiers & swapping mouth bacteria, plus so it won't affect DS's hard palate shape & teeth over time. She recommends quitting cold turkey and then he should be okay after a few days. We think we will start weaning this weekend since I'm not working so a few rough nights won't affect us too much.
Question for the BTDT moms: How did you successfully wean your kid from pacifier? I will add that I don't think my son would understand the concept of giving his pacifiers to another baby or pacifier fairy - I have heard of those tactics but think they would be over his head
