a good friend on facebook is freaking out because her 2 week old wont get off her boob and wants to give a paci. i explained to her that her daughters bevahior was totally normal and by giving a paci at this point it can caise latch issues and could potentially cause supply issues since that is why baby is suckling nonstop, to establish her supply. so of course RIGHT AWAY you have three mom who chime and and say "well i gave mine a paci in the hospital and they turned out fine"....so what is a not rude way of reinforcing what i said?
i know that not ALL babies will have an issue with pacis, but why set yourself up to have to deal with a latch or supply issue if you could possibly avoid it? help me out ladies!
