Ask yr pediatrician: Most babies give up the pacifier eventually and there is really no harm to using one unless perhaps adult teeth are coming in. Like any behavior you would like to discourage, distraction (offering a favorite toy, another activity, a drink of water or a healthy snack) is usually the best approach.
