I know many parents see the pacificer as a pain in the butt. However, I personally think it's a double-edged sword depending on how you use it.
My daughter is 20 months and the pacifier is used when:
1. She wants to sleep - so I will give her the pacifier and she knows its time to sleep. Once she's asleep, it falls out automatically (or I take it out) so when she wakes in the night, she just pops it back in and goes back to sleep.
2. When she's extremely upset - ie: at the doctors getting shots.
It's mainly a sleep aid and used only for that reason. I know I will eventually have to wean her, but for now, the pacifier seems to be our blessing more than burden. Again, everything in moderation.
When they aren't able to put it back in themselves, it does become painful so I presume many parents either eliminate or live through it.
Just my two cents on the pacifier.
