I know this kind is popular right now:
SOOTHIE-PACIFIER.COM
They are sort of cute because you can stick your finger in and give them a little more to gnaw on

I will avoid pacifiers for the first few weeks while breastfeeding is being established. After that, I may start using them if I have a thumbsucker but I will see if I can go without!

My son was never really interested in them, which I guess was a good thing. He loved to gum our fingers though.

I don't think there's anything wrong with them, in moderation. But that probably goes for just about everything.

Liam is addicted to his. But would be a thumb sucker otherwise, so I will take the trade off. At least we can "let" him have it when we want and not when we don't. But he is pretty stubborn about his right now.

We will offer one with the new baby when he/she is ready (I think that is an individual thing).
I see nothing wrong with them. It helped Liam greatly with his GERD and ear issues. We are just now hitting the stage where we need to limit them to bed and naptime. But he just keeps getting sick...so we are on hold for a bit.
We like Mam brand. They were the only ones small enough for him as a newbie (he had his in the hospital and never had an ounce of trouble nursing, even as a preemie) and he seems to prefer their shape. We will stick with them.

My son never took one, but if the next baby does then that's ok with me! I'll likely not give baby one til after 4 weeks, I had a hard time BF'ding last time and want to make my chances as good as possible!

We will probably, when baby wants to take it. Danica wouldn't take one until she was about 10 weeks old, and she would only take the Playtex ortho pro. We realized this after trying 4 other brands, that she will still refuse. We're in the process of trying to wean her from it (she only uses it for sleep), but like Liam she is really stubborn about it...must be a toddler thing!

Erin was a constant sucker. She would be nursing constantly if I hadn't given her a pacifier early (I made it through the first day without one). Patrick took one at first and then ditched it for his thumb. I would have preferred he keep the paci but he refused it. He still sucks his thumb when he's tired/upset, but not as often anymore.

I will take this baby's cues to see what happens, and I'll probably use the Nuk rather than Soothie. The soothies are heavier.

My DD would have nothing to do with paci's. But then again, she's a ginormous thumb sucker!! Right now she onlt sucks her thumb when he has her blankie and is tired, so it dowsn't bother me that much. If the next baby wants paci's, that'll be fine too. I have nothing against them.

My boys were all different. My oldest loved his pacifier and when I took it away was a thumb sucker until age 7! My middle son never liked it and my youngest son spit it out after 6 months old. I guess my best answer is I went with the needs and personalities of each of my boys.

Jeremy liked them Linda did not. Linda is a big thumb sucker to this day and she is 6. We are working with her but the dentist said its not really a huge deal as long as I understand that she will probably need braces if she doesn't stop. Jeremy gave his paci up but I don't remember what age, they all just kind of disappeared. So with this baby if they want one they can have it. Brand TBD .

Jess - does Lynda have a comfort creature such as a blanket/toy as well? Corey never had one but I traded off his blankie for thumb sucking and it took a year but dwindled out. I tried the whole putting dish soap on his thumb and the first time he cried I was done with that!
