    Default Pacifiers

    What kinds are your babies taking? I have tried the Soothie and the Nuk so far with mixed results. Those are the two kinds I've used before. He seems to do okay with the Nuk but gag on the Soothie. What kinds have you guys tried and what has worked for you?

    Emma takes a MAM. It's the brand that was in a bag of freebies we got at the hospital. It was the first one we tried with her, and she takes it pretty decent. We had purchased Tommy Tippy ones which are the orthodontic style but she doesn't like them.

    So tell me about pacifiers. If you are breastfeeding I hear its good to wait, but how long? Until you introduce a bottle?

    I have the soothies and the tommee tippe ones. I might have the gumdrop ones too, can't remember, need to go through my baby items again.

    We have tried Soothie, MAM, NUK, Tommy Tippee, and Dr Brown's. And nothing. Out of all of them I guess you could say he hates Soothie the least, but that just means he'll take it for 5 seconds before spitting it out instead of making a face and screaming the second it touches his tongue.

    Elizabeth - The nurses gave T a Soothie in the hospital and he loved it. We BF for 14 months and never had any confusion. I've been trying to get Reid to take one since his first night in the hospital, and he is also not confused; he knows exactly what he likes (boob) and what he hates (anything but boob)

    Got an opinion? We've got a board! Come join us for some lively debate on the Face Off! Debate Arena board.

    Nuk here... I hate this stage when they have bink but can't put back in if it comes out. The other day I was trying to finish cupcakes for DD and I swear I would frost a cupcake fix the bink over and over

    Elizabeth, there's a lot of mixed information about giving pacifiers for breastfeeding. A lot of sources say not to, but it hasn't hurt us at all and has helped us get/keep her asleep a lot, which is worth it to me. If you look up more recent studies on it, I believe they're finding pacifier use to not be as harmful to the breastfeeding relationship as they originally thought.

    I have Nuk, Avent and Soothie. She's not a big fan of the Avent or the Nuk, she likes the Soothie the best...even though I think it looks a little absurd because it's so HUGE around her mouth...lol. She'll spit it out right quick if it's not what she wants. Pretty much - after I feed her but when she won't take any more milk (she also spits that out when she's done) she'll take a pacifier and semi keep it in her mouth. She waves her arms around a lot (she hates being swaddled) and sometimes she knocks it out of her mouth. Then she screams. But right after a bottle, it helps her go to sleep because she's *almost* asleep during a bottle but mommy has to burp her and she wakes right back up.

    My hospital does not provide pacifiers anymore and they said its for the reason of breastfeeding...but we can bring one if we like. I like the idea of a pacifier, because it seems like my friends that have LOs that take to it are a bit less fussy. However, then you have deal with separating it from them later. So Alissa, it might be bad now, but maybe later you will have an easier time.
