start by reducing the use slowly...like only nap time and night...then take away at nap and use only at nite..then slowly take away at nite... use gestures like swaying... craddling to make the baby sleep..another way is to make it taste bad .next way is outrite refusing to gv... it ll take time but slowly u can wean off pacifiers

Apply some neem oil on it for couple of days.  If it tastes bitter she will stop using it.

Hi Jass Kaur u have to reduce the use n try different things to divert mind during sleep n other tm... Like telling stories.. Showing different items.. By making different faces n singing rhymes etc... N try putting any liquid which the baby don't like.. Like tht she will dislike to suck tht... N mk her cradle n change Habbit.

Yatri Thacker will you be aware to advise ?

You need to divert her mind. Either take her out when she craves for the nipple or start talking to her. You need to involve with her. Don't push her do the process slowly.

i dont think you can gradually reduce a nipple. either apply something bitter like nisha said, or just stop it altogether. tell her that now she is a big and smart girl, and big girls don't use nipples. give her honey, milk drink before sleeping and tell her this is what big people drink. she might find it difficult to sleep, but be with her, be there for her. read to her books, give a bath before bedtime, sing to her, change the bedtime routine to something that will relax  her and also what she will enjoy. since she is young, she will adapt soon.... take care dear...
