I'm so glad to see this thread, and I'm soooo glad to see all the paci-baby support! DS is a paci boy through and through. I recently had to set some limits on it because he grinds his teeth and was chewing through a paci in a day. So now, he leaves it in his bed before we leave for school, and he chews on a chewy tube (for oral motor stuff) during the day. He has taken very well to this new change so far, but I have no intentions of having him give up the paci entirely any time soon. As with most developmental things, I've found that if I just wait it out, he comes around with no problems sooner than if I fought it.
