When my son was born we bought pacifiers..so 3 years ago. He refused them all...we tried a variety of shapes and brands and he just didn't want one. Which I was eventually OK with because then I didn't have to have the "binky fairy" come to visit. I still have all of them. They are no longer in the original packaging but they have been stored in sealed zip lock bags for about 2.5 years. We are deciding if we want to try the new baby with one. So finally my question is.....do you think the old ones are OK to use or should I buy new ones. I am worried that the plastic has broken down over time and that the baby will be sucking and it will come apart in the mouth....What do you think???
