Anthony never used a pacifier thankfully. I would just gather them all up and throw them away. It is horrible for their teeth. I would sit him down and explain to him that he is a big boy now and that he doesn't need it anymore. It provides him security so you may want to take him to the store and let him pick out a new buddy to help take the pacifiers place. Good luck!

a pacifier right? cut a small hole in the top... when he tries to suck on it, it won't work and he may throw it away like my daughter did. She realized it was broke =)

Throw them away one by one - if he goes and gets another one, throw it away - he is too old for it and it will harm his teeth. I know this sounds harsh, but it's not - he won't even be phased in about 2 days. Those 2 days could be rough, but he won't even be phased after that. Tell him big boys don't use dummies and you need to get rid of them - then you just throw it away - in the big garbage, not the kitchen one where he can get it out.
