When we first had our baby we went back and forth on pacifiers. Some advice we got was that they are not good. Kids have thumbs and they should suck on them. Others said they are lifesavers. So we decided that we’d needed to have one on hand just in case.
Well, when the night came that we decided to use it, Lily didn’t take it. We tried again and again for days and she wouldn’t have anything to do with it.
Then someone told us about Soothie pacifiers. So we picked some up and Lily took to them immediately and loves them.
Basically Soothies are shaped more like mom; if you get my drift. And that shape seems to be something that’s much more calming and satisfying.
She loved that thing until she started to get teeth and then not so much. Which is fine by us as we hear that getting kids to stop using a pacifier is difficult. Maybe we’ll be lucky and won’t have to deal with that.
If you’re a new parent, I’d recommend testing out Soothie pacifiers. They worked wonders for us.
