  • ds yes, dd, tried, but she chucked it at 2 months. best that way anyway, easier than trying to get them off of it later down the road

  • Yes, it was the best thing. I decided to not give my second one a pacifier and she because a thumb sucker. It was much easier to take the pacifier away than the thumb.

  • my 3 mo DD uses one now but doesn't really seem to like it too much. she pacifies herself with her hand mostly anyway. overall she's a pretty content baby not really needing much pacifying to begin with. I've generally use it in extreme cases where she couldn't seem to pacify herself. as she gets older now she doesn't need it as much.

  • My boy twin had a very strong suck reflex and needed one, my girl twin was never interested. Well she was interested in the one in her brothers mouth because it bobbed up and down. So she'd grab it, realize it didnt move by itself so she'd toss it leaving him screaming for his binky.
    on his first birthday I put him to bed and offered him his pacifier. It looked at it like "what is that thing", so I threw them all away and he never used one again.

  • We tried with our son but he didn't like it.
    He stopped using it after about 3 months.
    He'd rather suck on his thumb or fingers when sleeping.
