After she turned 3 we decided she HAS to give up her pacifier which she calls it her "baba". She did as good as what I expected. Asked for it all the time , whined , cried , just plain Ms Grumpy McGrump Grump. Each day got better less asking for it only when she got in trouble or tired . We would just get her side tracked which has worked pretty well . She also since not having it has started sucking her fingers. Hoping that won't last long !!
