Pacifiers – It’s a Debate – When To Wean From Pacifier

December 1, 2010

The Bottom Line – Does my child need a pacifier and when should I wean him/her?

Every baby and child is unique. Only you the parent knows best when this decision is made. My oldest daughter only used her pacifier from birth to the age of 4 months. She then spit her pacifier out and never used it again. However, she found another coping mechanism being her thumb and her underwear. I know the underwear thing sounds kind of funny but she used to suck her thumb and rub her underwear just like a blankie. She is my independent child and as a 4 month old baby she learned how to self pacify herself. My other two children used their pacifier’s from birth until I weaned them at ages 2 and 3 years of age. They were addicted to their pacifier and I had no idea how I was going to make this transition until I created the Pacifier B Gone™ – The Nurturing Solution to pacifier weaning. Pacifier B Gone™ is a fun, loving and magical way that reduced and even eliminated PPT – Post Paci Trauma in most situations. Unless your child weans themselves from the pacifier like my oldest daughter (now 11) I recommend beginning the weaning process between the ages 2 to 3 years of age. This is as they are beginning to really embrace speech development, motor skills, teeth development, and learn life long skills.
