I don't plan to offer a pacifier because I've read that it can interfere with breastfeeding - although I did see a couple really cute ones at Target that would be super adorable for our little half-Mexican baby. One says "No Hablo" and the other one says "Que Pasa?"
I might change my mind about pacifiers once I feel confident that we've bonded and he doesn't have issues with breastfeeding.
We used the paci with Alex, but we waited until he was 4 weeks old to give it to him, and it was only because I read somewhere that you wanted to wait until the baby is 4 weeks old if you were BFing, so that you don't confuse him/her. Not sure what we will do this time a round.
We have tried but most of the time she was not interested. She never had problems latching though, so I didn't have a problem with it. Like Lindsey, the pacifier is needed for her to soother herself when the boobies aren't around.
Sort of. Chloe will only take the ones she got in the NICU. I've tried buying similar ones, but no dice. She mostly just takes it to sleep and I will take it away when she is one year corrected. I took my son's away at that time, too.
