He definitely associates it with sleep. When he was an infant, he was a wonderful sleeper (opposite of my other child) and I didn't want to do anything that would disrupt that (take away his pacifier).

Now, he is not a great sleeper, but taking away the pacifier might make him worse. He was very distraught when he woke up last night and didn't have it.
