Have any of you other ladies ever want to tape the pacifier to your child's mouth? I mean he wants it but if falls out and then he whines and its always while I'm in the middle of trying to do something. Just asking.

I need some kind of magic pacifier.

  • This made me laugh! My FIL said he wanted to make an invention to strap it to my son's mouth.

    BTW, if/when he can bring things to his mouth with his hands, there's a great paci with an animal attached called a Wubba Nub. It was so much easier for my DD to get in her mouth when she got to that stage.

  • Been there! And thought the same thing! lol Just ignore the whining for a little while and he'll get it. He has to learn to soothe himself eventually anyway! GL!

  • The thought sounds criminal but I'm just getting to that point where I can actually stand to hear him cry for awhile. So, we'll work it out or I'll get some low grade earplugs.

  • I'm hoping the thought of strapping the pacifier to the face is just a joke since that has been known to kill babies. It's hard to tell someone's tone over the computer but I'm guessing you're not serious. I totally understand how frustrating it is though! I didn't get a good night's sleep until I just took my daughter's away when she was 5 months old. She cried when it was time to sleep for the first couple days but learned to get along without it very quickly and now I get a good night's sleep b/c I'm not constantly up putting it back in her mouth! My advice is to get rid of it. I hate pacifiers! :)

  • No I hate paci's. I would never give it to them. SO I would never think of strapping one to their face
