My kids never took one past 7 weeks. *shrug*  At least I didn't have to break them from it.  4 months is a crazy growth spurt, hang in there and she'll be done with the all.the.time nursing shortly.

 Most bf babies don't like paci's. If she doesn't want one, she doesn't need one. Don't worry about it!

I think that is more true of formula fed babies who have a higher risk of Sids than a breastfed baby.

All you can do is offer and try different brands, but otherwise you can't make her take one. None of my kids cared for pacifiers which didn't bother me any. Good luck.

My dd came home from the hospital using one and was a regular binky "addict". At 4 months old she refused it one day and never took it again.

I much prefer that to my ds1 who didn't start taking one until 4-5 months old (when I went back to work) and then I had to take it from him at 2 1/2.

I only use NUK, dd would only use them & broke herself at 5 months.

Ds, I only offered after a few days of nursing so that it would maybe lower the chance of nipple confusion. NUK is made for breastfeeding moms anyway. Sometimes he will take it sometimes he won't.

Nursing baby to sleep has the same effect :-)

Keeping baby close to mom and nursing frequently during the night is th original protector of SIDS. Or, perhaps that is what is normal for human infants nd when you bottle feed and/or have them sleeping separate from mom, not waking to feed so much during the night, that SIDS INCREASES.
