Do you think it's a bad idea to strap baby's paci to the side of the crib?

DS always loses his paci over the side of the crib then wakes and cries for it. He can get it in his own mouth if it's available. So I thought I would use the strap that I use to strap it to the front of his shirt and strap it to the crib with a rubber band a few inches off the mattress. DH thinks it's dangerous.

  • I agree with DH he could twist and choke. I literally left like 8 pacis in my one kid's crib that used them. He hardly ever used his crib either but when he did I stockpiled the pacis there so he could find one.

  • I agree that I do not think that this is safe. Try putting several binkies in his bed so he always has one within reach.

  • Maybe this is a good time to get rid of it. Give it to the paci fairy!

  • no, I don't think that's safe.

    what about the little beanie baby pacifier holder thing? drawing a blank on the name but that would at least make it not roll out of the crib and it would be easy for him to find the animal since it's bigger.

  • I agree it is NOT safe! Just get up and get the paci. I've been doing it for almost 3 years. It gets annoying but my baby girl likes her paci so why shouldI get anoied lol.

  • Somewhere I have seen a pacifier attached to a small stuffed animal. Kids can find it easier and maybe it won't fall through the crib rails. I'll see if I can find the name for you.

  • I wouldn' sounds dangerous.

  • Yeah I agree that doesn't sound safe to me. My son had the same problem. He luckily was attached too much to it so if he did loose it in his sleep it was not a big deal. Could try and put another one in the crib next to him to see if he notices it if he loses the other one.
