Does your JB use a pacifier? If so, when? And how often? And what kind/brand?

Will likes to suck on anything but he can't keep the paci in his mouth so we have to keep putting it in or hold it and he gets mad if we don't get it back in quick enough. We've tried several brands/styles and he seems to like the soothie ones the best. He doesn't get it too often but we try to use it when he is overly tired and really fighting going to sleep.

We use a Nuk pacifier.  Mainly to sleep or when she's crabby.  It often falls out while sleeping, but the initial bit is enough to keep her asleep.

We also use the NUK pacifier. We started giving it to him because I noticed him sucking on his fingers. He uses it a lot.. more then I had hoped he would but I feel like it's mean to take it away from him since it soothes him so much. He also still spits it out but gets mad until I give it back to him. I don't mind doing it but I feel so bad when I'm driving and cant help him with it.

I tried the soothie pacifier that we got from the hospital and JB seemed to like it but her child care teacher said it seemed like she'll gag on it sometimes so this weekend, I went out and bought a NUK one and JB seems to love that. The teachers are using it to help her fall asleep and then we used it once to help JB get through the car ride home- it was close to her nursing time and she was ready to eat.
