    Question MAM Pacifiers. What's the secret?

    Advertisements
    Baby girl has been refusing pacifiers for the past 7 months. I tried every single brand/generic/non-brand out there and ended up with a colorful different shaped collection of them. A couple of days ago, I found a MAM paci lost in her diaper organizer next to the changing pad and thought: let's give it a try, what's the worst she is going to do but projectile spit it in my eye.

    Not only she love it but after 3 days, she now refuses to let go of her paci unless it's feeding time. I did try her other pacifiers just for the heck of it and she does not like either of them, has to be her MAM paci. We are so surprised since she refused one for so long.

    What's the magic of MAMs? What's their secret? Did any of you go through this with your baby (or sibling, niece, nephew, baby you were/are baby-sitting for)? Does this mean, I will have a hard time breaking this habit?

    DS tried all sorts of pacis before we found the mams. he totally dug them. We didnt even try anything different for DD. She had the mam bottles and the mam pacis.

    Cadence would only take a certain shape nipple that was only found on a certain brand that was discontinued shortly after she was born. I searched every Wal-Mart in Arkansas that was within an hour and stocked up on all the clearance ones I could find.

    My mom said she only used MAM for me and my middle sister and planned on it with the youngest but she got hooked on the ugly hospital one and wouldn't let go Mom was disappointed.

    Aidan's the same way. Although when he was a newborn he would only take the first years gumdrop paci's. Now it's mam or nothing.

    I think they're infused with baby crack. My son loves his Mams, too.

    The glow in the dark MAMs are pretty neat, too. Never had to keep a paci under the light bulb before, though.
