1st time posting.... hi all!
Our little one is 21 months old and has a heart attack if "the sucker" is taken away from her. We've been restricting it to bedtime only, but even so it's clearly a stress factor throughout the day for her (and us). However our oldest (she's 4.5 yrs old) was never attached to a pacifier. We got rid of hers at 18 months.... so this is a new experience for us. The little one does have a "teddy" that we allow her to trot around with (her comfort teddy i suppose), but her teeth are getting that funny pacifier shape to them... that's where part of our concern comes in. (the other part is tooth decay)
Does anyone have opinions, suggestions or advice on what to do?
