Recently I received a question from a reader looking for some help.
Maria asks, “My 3yo uses a pacifier at nap and nighttime, and occasionally when she’s feeling extra-vulnerable. It never comes downstairs from the bedroom, though. For dental reasons, she needs to stop. I want to respect her ability to come to this in her own time and way, but I fear she will not do so on her own.
I am looking for readers to share personal experiences of how they helped older toddlers stop pacifier use. Thanks.”
