Mason is and I'm hoping to take it away soon. He has them stashed all over the house though so I have to find them all first. He hides them out and then I can't find them but he can go right to them.

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.

Jacob had his til about 2 weeks ago. He hid his and we have no idea where it is and we refused to buy another one. It was a hard week but he is over it!

Alivia is still using it and attached to it. I don't plan to try to get rid of it until she is 2 or so.

William still uses his. I am thinking about trying to get rid of his soon, but I am not stressing over it.

We have two in her crib for naps and bedtime only. I'm not worried about it and probably won't take it away until she's two

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

None here - we got rid of it about 13 months. He seems somewhat interested in stealing Julia's but so far he hasn't actually put one in his mouth.

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.

None here, I put them all away around 14 months. I thought it was going to be pretty tough for him, but he surprised me. Just a few bumpy nap times but that was it.

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.

We got rid of Peyton's at 13 months cold turkey. It was way easier than I had anticipated!
