My son is a little more than one month old and thus far has been a pretty good baby. We are looking forward to when he sleeps through the night but that goes with the territory! Our daughters took to a pacifier instantly but our son has yet to find a comfort zone with any type we have tried. What is the shape, size and brand of your baby’s favorite pacifier? -- Chris, Strongmoms Facilitator
One of my children loved the NUK, the others liked MAM. I think you just keep buying them and trying them out till you find one he likes!! LOL!
Hmm, I don't think that it has ever really mattered what pacifier I've used with kiddos. They don't seem to picky! I think the key is to just make sure it's not to big or to small for the baby.
My first loved Soothies. They were his fav. My second never did like a pacifier! He didn't suck his thumb either...just figured out how to chill on his own, I guess. :-p
both mine used soothies! my first loved the wubbanunb and my second just likes the soothie paci
I have a 2 month old. We have tried 3 different pacifiers and she doesn't want any of them. She doesn't suck her hands or thumbs. She is good about calming herself down. I figure this ok and I dont have to take it away one day.
My third child was like that Tach... very little interest and a good self soother from the get go. My baby now is much more likely to need additional help!
I think it's great that some of these kiddos are self-soothers. That is the effect we are after with a pacifier, so if they can do it without one-more power to them!
Yes, my third child was like that and HATED all pacifiers, but he didn't need them. He was a quiet baby and didn't feel an overwhelming desire to suck on things, so it worked out.
Tach - EXACTLY! We had to figure out with my first how to break the pacifier habit when he was 2. It was a pain if we forgot to bring them with us somewhere, etc. My second is exactly like your daughter - he doesn't suck his thumb or use a paci. I'm pretty relieved because we won't have to figure out how to break a bad habit later!
