My son is a little over 8 months old now. He sucks on his pacifier to sooth to sleep, and sometimes during the day. Tonight we were trying to find a pacifier to put him down, and I was wishing that we could just put him down without one. He has been sticking a finger or thumb in his mouth when he doesn't have a pacifier, and I'm also a little worried that he'll start thumb-sucking, which we definitely don't want. Should we start weaning him now? How long does it take?
