My son is almost 10 1/2 months and I want to get him off the pacifier hopefully by the time he is 1. He only uses it during naps and at night. Once he falls asleep the binkie comes out and I have been trying to take it out of his crib. If he starts to move around, he will be half asleep trying to feel for the binkie. If he can't find it he tends to cry. He will sleep the whole night but around 4am if his binkie isn't in the crib he will cry. If he has it, he will suck on it until he falls back asleep and will sleep another 2 hours. It's definitely something he uses to self soothe when he stirrs or wakes up in the night or early morning. Any tips or tricks on weaning from the binkie? Should I just do it cold turkey? I do feel bad because he is cutting his molars, so I don't know if I should wait a couple weeks because he is pretty miserable as it is right now. Any suggestions or advice? Thanks!!
