Pacifier Problems?


We've decided to take our 2 and half year old's pacifier away from her cold turkey, and she seems to be doing generally okay with the transition. The hardest part seems to be at nap and bedtime as it seems to take longer for her to fall asleep, or she won't sleep for some naps. She has also been a bit more defiant during the day because she's mad we took it away. She typically would take her stuffed bunny and paci to soothe herself to sleep but now only has the bunny. Sometimes I feel guilty, like I've taken away from her her ability to totally calm herself and that she will have a lot anxiety from this change. Am I setting herself for future problems by taking the paci away or will it just take some time for her to get used to?
