The use of the pacifier is a completely personal choice, both for the parents offering it and the child using it. I tried to have both of my boys use the pacifier (thinking that if they got too old that it could disappear). My eldest used his until about 10 months when he threw it out of the crib twice before his dad and I left the room. My youngest would not take it and we now have to deal with a thumb-sucker. Sucking is relaxing and calming to an infant, but not using a pacifier is not going to harm her.
