Pacifiers can be very helpful soothers for some babies.
As they get older, they will learn other ways to soothe themselves and fall asleep. For a baby who is attached to the pacifier
as a comfort object, it will be harder to "take it away". You have to decide when you feel that your baby has outgrown the pacifier. If you need help with how to get him/her to stop, ask your doctor for advice.
