The news actually showed and talked about breastfeeding . The showed a woman nursing her baby . The said do not throw pacis out . Bc it actually develops a baby to want to nurse . It helps a baby nurse and want to breastfeed . It was cool seeing that on tv.

Cool that she was nursing on tv. Unsure of why its suddenly so important to have a paci. I understand some moms love to use them and some moms hate them. dd was never offered one and she is still nursing at 21 months without us ever having issues.

I am nursing my 6th baby and I never used a paci. I nursed each baby for 2 years and never had a issue. They hated paci's and so does my new baby. So I guess I am confused on the paci thing.

 That is pretty neat. At first I hated how my LO became a paci baby, but now after seeing so many moms complaining or wishing they weren't a human paci I am glad he takes one. My first never took one...He was a thumb baby lol. He self weaned from the thumb around 15 months old.

I wonder how women were successful at breastfeeding before pacifiers were invented. Thank you modern technology.

I think using the paci taught my dd how to suck. She wasn't doing well until we introduced the paci. She used it for about a week and now nurse like a champ, but won't take a paci

I know too many babes that start using their thumb to pacify themselves and then the habit sticks with them for years. A paci can be taken away - which can break the habit. Just my experience

Agreed...my son never took to a pacifier but started sucking his thumb from the beginning and still at 3 1/2 years I'm still trying to break it...I finally got it to bedtimes and naptimes.

This is my thinking as well. some babies have a greater need to suck then others do. I prefer binkies to thumbs
Op it is suprising that the news would have a breastfeeding story. Hopefully bf becomes more common and accepted.

This is what my grandma told me. In fact, she tells a story of standing over her daughter in her crib, holding a paci in her mouth. when she was sure her daughter was asleep, she slowly took her finger off and ... pop... out goes the paci, in goes the thumb! lol...

I didn't offer dd a paci, but she didn't ever take to sucking her thumb either. I think she was nursing enough to satisfy her suckling needs.

I wish my son would take a paci, instead he crawls over to me for comfort sucking =/
