What is the best type/kind of pacifier for a 3 year old? I would love to have my son stop using me as his night time pacifier for sleep. But, haven't researched enough to see what kind there is for his age.

You don't switch him to the pacifier. You either take the initiative to wean him off the breast or let him continue until he is ready to give it up on his own.

There is nothing at all wrong w/ him still nursing at his age, but if YOU want him to be done.... it's time to start setting limits and replacing the nursing w/ cuddles and/or a stuffed animal or something. Good luck!

I have to agree with Gena. He is too old for both breast and pacifier. If you give him one now he is not gonna want to give it up when he is five to go to school and he will be picked on. You should have had him on a cup by now fully.

I would just stop giving him the breast, tell him he is a big boy and that big boys dont need pacifiers.
