Does your little one take a paci or suck his/her thumb?





Christian hates paci's and will spit it out of his mouth. He hasn't tried to suck his thumb until yesterday and I saw him doing this.





So now I'm wondering if he's going to start sucking his thumb. he hasn't tried again. I really hope that he doesn't start. Jackson sucked his thumb and just recently at the age of 4 did I get him to stop.

How adorable. Colt does neither. He spits out the pacifier unless he is really hungry and then he sucks on it and cries at the same time.

CUTE! No paci for Toren.... now when I try to stick it in his mouth he giggles at me, if he's in a good mood. If he's in a bad mood it just makes him even more angry. He LOVES sucking/munching on his hands and fingers. He's also starting to drool a lot. I have to keep a bib on him otherwise I would be changing his outfit constantly throughout the day. Maybe teething soon? I really don't notice him being more fussy yet.

Amy Christian has started drooling also. I don't remember my other two drooling so much this early.

Truely won't take one unless she is fighting sleep, and even then rarely. She does try to suck on her hand and a few times has managed to get in her thumb and pointer finger at the same time and makes a very slurpy sound when she does.

Reagan was a paci baby, it was our saving grace, I swear that is why she was such a good sleeper

Addy doesn't do either, I tried with the paci many times. It took her a long time to learn how to self soothe.

Michael takes a pacifier and tries to suck on his thumb a lot. He's actually managing to get his thumb in there to suck on it more often. I think I'd be crazy if he didn't because this kid LOVES to suck. I would just about never be able to put him down if he didn't. Even with him doing both there are still many times when he just wants to nurse and nothing else cuts it for him. I get to sit on the couch with him pretty much all day or he's screaming on those days.

Well over the last couple of days Truely had been trying to get her fingers/fist in her mouth more and more. Still hates the binx (we have 3 different kinds and she doesn't care for any of them). But I did discover she loves my finger. With her colic I've been trying different things to help sooth her and she loves to suck on my finger. In fact she can kind of pull it out when she's done and try to stuff it back in when she wants it again (well she's trying as hard as she can).

Aw! I wish Kody took a paci. It was our saving grace for Ethan, and Kody is just like Ethan was when he was a baby (as far as sleeping goes). But, I suppose it will be easier somewhat, but I would gladly trade a few weeks of toughing it out getting rid of a binky in order to have several years of binky bliss! He doesn't suck his thumb either.

RANT WARNING.

My mother has been fabulous since the baby was born but she has a habit I must tell her to stop. She insists that all children take a paci. Ok, whatever. Isabell only a week ago,started showing interest in the paci and will take it when she is tired. Great!


Except, my mother insists when she is fussing that she needs to dip the paci in something. Usually gripe water.


Well now isabell won't take the paci plain. So tonight I was leaving my parents and my mom was getting Isabell ready for the car, dippd the paci, stuck it in, of course she took it. On the way to the car, the paci came out, and Isabell,wouldn't take it again. I had to make the twenty minute drive home with her screaming in the back seat. Three days ago, she would have taken it, but it is boring from me with nothing on it!


I'm going to have to tell my mother to stop and this is going to cause a huge issue. Sigh. Oh well. Isabell has been here for 26 days and this is the first issue with my mother, which is surprising.

Oh Anna that would be hard. I hate riding in the car/truck with a LO screaming/crying in the back. I hope it goes well with your mom.

My guy used to LOVE the paci. Then about at 3m, he started refusing all plastics. No paci, no bottle. Ugh!
