How to break 2yr old from Binky

My daughter is gonna be 2 next week and she uses her Binky all the time. She really depends on it for everything. I need suggestions on ways to get her off it.

when a child is attached to a blanket, it becomes their security, and like grown-ups, they need to progress to a new level. Try this, take your daughter to a build a bear, they are located in some malls, if you leave near one, have her pick out her new adventure, and tell her that it is a prize for being such a beautiful daughter, and that you were a lot like her, and tell her that this new prize, will protect her, and keep her safe when she sleeps. Then when you get home, show her how you did the same thing,,, ( the catch is, have a stuffed animal in your closet, and tell her that this special stuffed animal protected you )

The key to this, is to make her know that you relate to her, this will help the transition from the blanket.
