My nephew was about 2 or 3 his parents started taking his pacifier while he was sleeping. When he woke up they would pretend to look for it in his bed with him and tell him he must have swallowed it in his sleep. They’d laugh and pat his tummy and tell him it was in there now. They did his every single night with each pacifier they owned until they were all “gone”. Then they told him “oh well, I guess you’re too big for pacifiers now”. And he did just fine. And until he was about 5, if you asked him what happened to his pacifiers he’d pat his tummy and say he swallowed them all.

I know another person that soaked/stored all her child’s pacifiers in a big jar of apple cider vinegar so that they’d taste bad. Within a week her child no longer wanted them.
