we tried to cut down on use for just nighttime. and then at 2 years old did the trash can method ("Elmo needs your pacifier, so let's give it up Oscar to give to Elmo") and same as Jess - he asked for it a few times and then eventually got over it! you can always keep an emergency paci where your child can't find it, just in case you're in a situation but hopefully won't have to bust it out. good luck!
