Just curious who is planning on using pacifiers?
We used pacifiers (binkies) with all three of our other children.
I'm planning on using pacifiers if David isn't a thumb sucker like his sister and will take one.
I fully intend to use a pacifier if necessary(after all babies like to suck)..My first son wouldnt take one and was super colicky..My second son loved his paci when he wasnt eating and was the calmest mellowist baby ever..My sister used a paci with her first and he didnt want to give it up..But I found a good remedy for it..Honestly we just cut the very end of the thing off with a pair of scissors and after taking it he was like "woah..somethings different and quit wanting it..it was not a big deal for him..Just an idea if anyone is having a hard time trying to decide wether to use a paci or not..Its easier to take away than a thumb..LOL..Good luck girls..we'll have to keep this discussion alive after the little babes get here.
DS only took one for a short period of time within the first couple weeks. DD was the same way, until she started daycare last fall. All the kids in her class had binkies so she suddenly became obsessed with them! I was worried at first, but she actually just gave it up herself. I bought a pack of the GumDrop binkies to try with this LO. If she takes them fine, if not fine. I'm just not wanting to be a human pacifier all the time!
I love them.
