just curious, did your kids refuse binkys?

my twins act like they dont know how to use a binky... I'm serious

they have a few different kind and the Nuk ones, they like to hold on to and bite down, and pull out, and repeat lol.

but they wont suck on them! (not complaining!!!! lol)

I just find it odd that even though I let them have them since they were born, they just don't use them.... I worked at daycare for a year and never met a kid who was offered a binky and didnt want it!

anyone else had this happen?

just curious

  • Neither of my son's would take one, we tried several different types and they refused all of them.

  • My DD wouldn't take the one they gave at the hospital so I just never tried to get her to take one. I didn't want her to have one anyway but she was having some sucking problems and they were trying to get her to use it. She started using her index and middle finger (at the same time) with palm facing upwards. Now at 3 yrs, she only does it when tired and it pops out when she's asleep.

  • My daughter hated them, she gave a grossed out face... Oh well at least i didn't have to deal with getting her off of a pacifier! :)

  • My 3rd baby won't take one at all. My first two were binky addicts. Weaning them from it was terrible.

  • My oldest took one - and still does half the time, we just can't get it off of him
    My middle one wouldn't take anything in his mouth - no Nuk, no bottle
    The little one isn't here yet...

  • nope both my sons didnt take one wish they did cause it reduces the chances of sids.
