  • Just to warn you, you can try every brand on the market, but if your baby doesn't want a pacifer they will just spit it out and you will have wasted a lot of money. A pacifier isn't a necessity.

  • No paci! Better not to have them dependent on one at all.

  • Some babies have a non-nutritive sucking need until age 18 months or older. Some kids benefit from a pacifier.

  • Pacifiers are a replacement for breasts. Your baby may not need one.

  • Nuk. And I have a thumbsucker who we didn't let use a paci. She is FIVE now! Go with the paci before they start the thumb sucking! You can not take a thumb away.

  • A Soothie worked best for us and is what was recommended by our lactation consultant. Pacis reduce the risk of SIDS.
