If she won't take it you can't make her.

they either like it or they don't, I'd be glad she didn't want it anymore, honestly.

I've heard of people dipping it in sugar and giving it to the baby that way but idk how safe that is. They should have a virgin gut close to six months

Has baby started teething? (Symptoms can show up long before teeth!) My son won't take his paci when his mouth is bugging him... He wouldn't take them at all for a short while

Seriously you can't make a baby take a pacifier if they doby want to....D's never would take one he liked his thumb. He's 15 months old and doesn't suck his thumb or pacifier.

Kids that use a pacifier a lot are more prone to ear infections. It's good that she doesn't like to use it. Also, since your Breastfeeding, nurse her when she gets fussy. Bf is more than nutrition, it's also about comfort.
