i dont know if this will help but we started slow. first take it at nap time for a few days then when you think its time. we said it was time to give them to the binky fairy, kinda like the toothfairy. we put all the binks in a small bag type thing and put them under her pillow and when she fell asleep we took them and left her alittle something and it worked... but i guess it all depends on the age and stuff. good luck.

We told my son a couple weeks before his 2nd birthday the doo doo fairy (he called soothers doo doo's - don't know where he got that from) was going to come on his birthday to take his soothers to babies who need them. We kept talking about it and saying what a big boy he is and the night before his birthday we had him put his soothers in a special box for the doo doo fairy to take. Sure enough the next morning he looked in the box and was excited the fairy had come to take the soothers. He only asked about them for a week then was over it. 2 years later when he saw a soother in his baby brother's bassinet he said the doo doo fairy must've brought the soother for his brother : )

with my ex's daughter we just threw it away and dealt with the crying for a couple of weeks but in the end she forgot about it quicker than when we tried everything else...

Depending on how old she is, if older then explain to them that the next day they are going to give their dummy to the Binky Fairy, who will come when she falls asleep and takes it from under her pillow, then maybe like the tooth fairy put a present next to her to find the next day eg a teddy, if younger then just take it away, it'll only take a couple of days for her to adjust

we simply threw our daughters away when she turned two. she asked for it and when we told her it was gone she just excepted it. it is amazing how children can just move on and ajust

Go out of town. We went to Busch Gardens with my 2-year-old and didn't mention it...out of sight, out of mind. She didn't ask for it until the second day and said "You don't need that thing. You are such a big girl!" She was so exhausted from playing and all the walking/activities from the day she didn't think about it and went right to sleep. She just found one, looked at it and smiled....then she put it down and said "Those are for babies, Mommy!" Good Luck and hope that works for you!

When my daughter was around 19-20 months I got my daughter done to just using hers during naps and bedtime. From there I was able to suggle with her at nap times and she never noticed that she didnt have her pacifier. After about a week of having one only at bed time, I cut a small hole in the pacifier. She still used it, more out of habit then anything. The next night I sat in her room at night and noticed that she played with it in her hands but never sucked on it. Then I just kept cutting more and more off, until it was gone. *****I will say that you have to keep cutting the pacifier down each night, because once it is cut it tears easy***** From the first time I cut the pacifier, to when she was done was less then 2 weeks. Good luck and I hope you have an easy time with your daughter giving up the pacifier.

My son was still using acouple of months ago, What we did was mysterious (throw away) the binky out one by one, until we only had one left. Then we weaned him at night and nap from that one. What i found when I was weaning him was I used it for me then him acutally needing it. He would ask like were is binky and I would just say another baby got it. Good luck.

depends on how old she is. My 2 year old still uses hers at nap and at night and when she is sick I let her have it. I don[t see it as a problem until maybe 3
