When my daughter had her 1 year appointment she actually had it when the doctor came it and he immediately took it away from her and it was cold turkey since.  I think I may have had 1 or 2 nights that she wanted it, but she was pretty good about getting over it.

We just went cold turkey. Of course, when it was time to give up the pacifier my daughter was year old. She was using a pacifier all day and night. I just took it away and gave my daughter a stuffed animal in her crib. My daughter now sleeps with a variety of stuffed animals. Sometimes it's one animal sometimes it's five animals but she's without a pacifier. She cried about it that first night but it got easier after time went on.

I took my daughter's away - and now she sucks her thumb! Apparently they grow out of it when the're ready. Kids of single parents have added stress - let them have something to soothe them so long as it's not a threat to their health. Good Luck!

see if u can get him used to sleeping with another comfort toy eg geddy bear or comfort blanket. do the comfort toy and dummy to start with and once they get used to cuddling with something slowly take away the dummy.
