I dont know if aany other mom has done or knows this but here it is. Hi like any other mom i experiment on how to get my child to sleep pn his own (or rock him to sleep and put him in his own bed etc,). Well i dont really wanna participate in co- sleep or (putting my child down alone with a pacifier) but every since he was born i would swaddle him and sing/rock him to sleep , but he would always wake up screaming , it seemed like the only way i could even get sleep was to sleep is with him on my chest (PLEASE NO BASHING) i needed my sleep in order to take care of him (single mom) so i eventually gave in to the pacifier that the hospital gave me. Well needles to say it worked like a charm but within this past month he start to suck on it then just drop it and cry so ever since then i have been wondering and practically pulling my hair out to figure out why he stoppped showing interest.
Well these past few weeks my gut has been telling me to try the paci i bought him from walmart(that didnt work when he was a newborn) (u know the regular non-hospital kind) bc something was telling me he outgrew the paci i have been giving him. My logic was that the regular paci supported the fact that his mouth was growing and gave him more suction then the hospital brand(and it supported his curves outside of his mouth instead of a dull flat one). I guess my gut was right bc at 10 am this am he woke up for a feeding and i could tell that he was tired (after the feeding)so i layed him down with his old paci and sang to him (needless to say it didnt work) then i gave him the regular one and he was sucking on that thing like there was no tommorrow.
For all of u moms that use the hospital brand and they have stopped working ...a bit of mama to mama advise switch to a regular one :) and again PLEASE NO BASHING
