Pro: Easier to Wean
Weaning your baby off anything can be quite the task. They are often resistant to change, making transitions – like moving from bottle to cup or breast to solids – very difficult.
Weaning your baby off the pacifier can still be difficult, but it is far easier to take a pacifier away than it is to break a thumb-sucking habit. If you need to, you can quit cold turkey by simply throwing the pacifier away; thumbs aren’t so easy to get rid of.
