Confession: I semi-reintroduced them to distract her from the boob. I'm not ready to wean but I kind of think at 19 months she doesn't need to be just hanging out on the boob all day either. DH gets mad and throws them away if he sees her with one The only one he doesn't mind is her Raspberry! However, she's not so attached to them that if they just all up and vanished one day it would be a big deal.
We try to limit it to naps and bed time too. She's been teething recently and been super cranky that I admit I've given her the paci to keep her from screaming. I have to hide them during the day or she will reach into her crib and pull them out. I'm not worried about taking them away yet. I think it will be easier to get rid of them with Abri than it was with Lily
Greyson wasn't ever super interested in pacifiers. He used one for naptime until maybe 4 or 5 months and then we just tossed them all. He doesn't suck his thumb either. My daughter switched from pacifiers to her thumb at about 7 months old and it took us a couple of years to break her of that habit.

Mason is way attached to his. If he can't find it he gets this blank, panicked look on his face and starts looking everywhere for it. When he finally finds it he laughs and pops it in his mouth. I think it's going to be hard to break.
Santa takes them away in exchange for presents. My DS who is almost 3 still takes it for naps, but he and L are only 14 months apart, so I always planned on doing it at the same time. More than anything, it is a day that I can count down to, tell him it is happening, etc.
Lauren is teething too, so basically she's chewed through almost all of them. I don't think it will be too hard, but I'm preparing for the worst.
