My 3 month old refuses to take a pacifier. She much rather likes to have a finger or her thumb or fist in her mouth to slobber and suck on to soothe her. Which is fine because she can do it on her own and it works. But i cant take her hands from her when she gets older. Pacifiers can be trashed. Any suggestions?Answer Question

Babies have strong sucking needs, some more than others. Breastfed babies spend hours on the breast a day. FF babies spend little time with a bottle and it's not the same at all. She is doing what's best for her. It's normal for children to breastfeed until they are 2-3 or older. She may suck her fingers that long or longer. My suggestion is to get used to it, it's normal.
