the only thing you can do to break him rom a pacifier is to start taking his pacifier away from him when he turns one years old and to hide them or throw them away and dont give them back to him it is gonna be hard not to give him a pacifier because he will cry when he dosent have one but those choices are the best thing you can do that what i did when my daughter turned 1 years old

The way I got my daughter to give hers up was to go round and collect them up in a bag and told her that we were doing this a the crying babies needed the dummies more than she did. She seemed to understand this and I've not had any problems since.

I give her cold or frozen bits of fruit and veg to help with her teething and I got a special rubber tip that goes on your finger which encourages the child's teetht o come through whilst giving them the support to ease the discomfort. Also bickiepegs are amazing, you can tie them to the child's wrist and they can chew on them for ages and ages.

Hope it helps xx
