  • Honestly if he doesn't like it, don't use it! I was so thankful that when my DS did the same thing, I just didn't use it anymore, and never had to go throught the drama of taking it away ie Suri Cruise,, lol!

  • At this age no sorry sounds like you're stuck running! When he gets older though feel free to try what we did with our soother sucking baby, we put 5 or so soothers around her at night time and when she woke she could put it back in herself and always find one. She was 8ish months when we discovered this though.

  • if you swaddle or wrap him in a blanket you could try wrapping an edge of the blanket across a part of the binky to help prevent it from falling out. That kind of worked for my kids, but they both hated their arms being pinned.

  • Yeah, sounds normal. Both my kids did the same thing. We did like PP too and just put a ton of binkies around her at night so she could always find one.

  • My lil girl didnt seem to do that... We had two that were just the right fit for her mouth... And she broke herself of the binky at six months... My youngest only took the binky til she was about three months and then she found
    Her thumb....

  • Look at the bright side... it informs you baby is still breathing! Frequent wakeups are a natural SIDS defense.
