She falls asleep and then uses me a pacifier. She Will not take a real paci and as much as i absolutely love laying and snuggling her i have things i have to dowhile she's sleeping! If I unlatch her she wakes up. She always nursing to sleep so She has to be in am very deep sleep to not wake up but that's usually only at night she's just not a good sleeper.

I have bought literally every kind of pacifier, I don't know what to do.

The pic is just cause she's cute ;)

My oldest son would rather suck on me than a pacifier, but I was actually able to get him to take one until he was 6months old and then he just stopped. My youngest barely ever took one and at 2 months completely stopped. I tried every one I possibily could and never found one that worked for him.

None of my three ever took one. I recommend a baby carrier if you want to get anything done :)

My oldest and my youngest were like that. I strapped my oldest to me in a baby carrier and away we went. I did things I needed to do and he slept.
My baby is 6 months. She pretty much cat naps. She might, might sleep 20 minutes if I lay her down. So I try to get things done while she's playing on the floor so I can lay with her in the afternoons while she sleeps

DD was the same way. Never took one. It wasn't until she was about 6 mos that I was able to wait for her to fall alseep and very, very gently ease up away from her. If I knew I would need to get up we would nurse laying down so when she was asleep I wouldn't have to move her much.

Babies don't use us as pacifiers. Pacifiers are mom replacement devices. Babies have a biological need to suck constantly and that need is supposed to be met at the breast. They also have a natural instinct to want to always be close to their mothers.
How old is she? If you MUST get things done, a sling or wrap would be helpful.

Is there a sleep friendly way to nurse in one? I have the baby ktan and all the positions are for baby to support their own head.
