Reply to Stop using pacifier?

We started by making him fall asleep without it. If he woke up in the middle of the night we gave it to him. Eventually he slept through the night and didn’t need it anymore. The hardest part was getting him to sleep. For that we just patted his back and shushed him for the first week and after about an hour he would get tired and nod off. Then the second week we would step out of the room about 15 minutes at a time and then 30 mins etc until he was used to us just walking out. How he can sleep fine with no pacifier! It took us a good three weeks to get everything perfect but it was so worth it
