We are weaning our 16 month old from her pacifier. She already has a comforter sheep, any ideas/tips?

theres a few options-

1.take it and let her cry.
2. get a fairy toy, have her give the "pacifier fairy" her pacifiers. in the morning, the fairy left a toy for each pacifier given.
3. cut the tip off.
4. ween her. only giving it at night and naps
5. let it be for now. shes still teething and i'm sure it helps her. this is what i did. my daughter is now 27 months and doesn't even ask for it for bed. she knows where it is and doesn't bother. We also weened. she was not allowed to leave the house with it. she loved outdoors so it worked.
