My son is three weeks old and he loves to have a pacifier in his mouth when he falls asleep. The only issue is, he can't seem to hold it in there for very long. At first I thought it meant he didn't want it, but he throws a fit when he doesn't have it so I started using it again. Every time it falls out of his mouth when he's sleeping, he instantly wakes up and screams. We've tried two different kinds of pacifiers; the Soothies and the classic shaped ones. We've also tried newborn pacifiers since he's sort of small but we haven't had luck with anything.
Did anyone else have this problem?
If so, did you ever find a solution and what was it?
If not, any suggestions would be so much more than appreciated.
Thanks in advance!
