Pacifier - should we or should we not?

My little one has a terrible terrible piercing cry. This is not the cute cooing cry of a newborn. It's a full blown tantrum cry (and she's only 2 and half weeks old.) Anyhow, I've noticed that she is constantly putting her fingers in her mouth, even after I've fed her. The pediatrician mentioned that I could try giving her a pacifier. My inlaws are horrified at the thought of a pacifier. They insist that it will form a habit.
My husband and I are conflicted. Any thoughts, advice or opinions on pacifiers? I'm inclined to listen to the pediatrician over my mother-in-law but just want to make sure we're making the right decision.
