How long do you let your kids use their binkies? I have never let any of my nieces and nephews use their binkies passed a year and a half and even that is pushing it. Most of them never used one though or only used one for 1 week to 1 month.

I never used one as a baby. I would probably want my child off of it by six months. Anything longer than twelve months might hurt the development of speech or interfere with teething.

My children never really used them. However my sister loved hers and had it till she was about 3 which for me is way too old.
