    Question Paci?

    Advertisements
    Just out of curiosity, how many use one? If you do, at what age did you introduce the Paci? Today at our doctor's appointment, DS was kinda fussing so I gave him one just to see what it would do. He calmed right down and now he seriously LOVES it. Idk if it was a good idea or not, but we'll see!

    I took pacifiers with me to the hospital when I had them. I like pacifiers because I think it's an easier habit to break than thumb/finger sucking. Also, I can't stand being a human pacifier.

    We used it in the hospital, I'm not sure I'll introduce them quite as early this time but I'm sure we will use them. We would not have survived without pacis with Anna

    We used them in the hospital but once we got home the girls stopped. They would always cry when we tried to give them one and spit them out

    Both of our girls started right away. They were in the NICU and needed IVs and were poked and prodded so much that we used them to soothe them.
    Neither one of them had any issues latching for BF (once they were big enough). One still sleeps with her paci and the other gags with one and sucks her thumb when sleeping.

    Aubs uses one. We didn't introduce her to it until around 8 weeks-- she didn't like them at first and I didn't want to force it on her and cause nipple confusion. She's only ever taken MAMs though.

    Aidan got one in the hospital even though they were against it. He never had confusion or anything. At first he would only take gum drops. Now he will only take MAM's.

    my girls used them in the NICU to teach them how to suck. Victoria used one until just recently, and vanessa stopped at about 2 months and started sucking her thumb My only suggestion is using them until like a year or 16 months because it will be easier to take away. When we tried to take it away from our three year old she had a nervous breakdown it was nuts! I'd rather use a paci than have thumbsucker though. Because we have yet to break Vanessa of her habit. Vic took whatever kind we had, and if she found one on the street today she'd probably put it in her mouth
