Our DD is almost 15 months old. She has never really "needed" the pacifier. Only time we gave it to her was for naps and bedtime....and even if it fell out it was no big deal.
But earlier this week she became obsessed with it and has to have it in her mouth at all times. I do think she's teething, but I always blame her behavior or mood on teething!
Did your LO's go through a "must have paci" phase or do you think it's due to teething?
