hmm, so I was just reading my hospital packet over, and it says in bold print, that they do NOT provide pacifiers, if you want to give your baby a pacifier, you must bring your own. Glad I read it...I thought every hospital provided them! Guess not Does your hospital provide them?

yes, but I don't actually like the ones they provide so I'm bringing my own anyway.

That's a good question and I have no idea. Maybe I can bring my own just in case. What's the best type of pacifier to use if I'm going to BF?

I never asked. but I already packed one for her...

Shante - some will say if you plan to BF to avoid a paci. because of possible nipple confusion.

but really it's up to you and baby to decide.

Ours does not provide pacifiers, I won't be using them until we have breastfeeding established so I won't have any with me.

The best kind is no kind in the beginning if you're breastfeeding! Babies can get nipple-confused, and it's also not good for mom's breastmilk supply if you're popping in a pacifier instead of letting baby nurse when he/she needs comforted. I just googled, and found this... It says to wait until baby is 6 - 8 weeks old before introducing. If I introduce at all, that is what I will be doing.

hmmm I guess they dont, because I don't remember them giving us one when Aleeya was born. I brought my own, and I'll do that again this time.

My hospital provided one for DS, but that was in an attempt to stimulate his breathing. If there is no medical reason like that, they do not provide any. I am hoping to avoid using one until BFing is established.

I don't think they do, but I wasn't planning on bringing one as I'm going to attempt breastfeeding

Yeah, my hospital provides them, but you have to ask. They don't just give everyone one. I don't want to use a pacifier if I can avoid it.

I think only the NICU does the gummie preemie ones, but the regular mat floor doesn't provide them, but I'm not certain. I always bring my own in anyhow

Our hospital provides them; but I'd rather not use it until nursing is established.

I want to say the paci is in one of the bags from the formula companies that my hospital gives out. I also know that when we took DS to the children's hospital to meet with the pediatric cardiologist, they gave us a soothies paci.

I am bringing my own - I believe the hospital does provide them though.

I bought playtex "just like mom" ones that have the nipple of it shaped like the mothers nipple- Logan had it from birth and nursed like a champ as well

On ly when Kairi went to the NICU did they give her a pacifier. They even said we had to leave it behind as we were not allowed to take it... which kind of grossed me out, because why, do they reuse them? I dunno. We took it anyway, it was in her mouth when we left, and no one took it out. So there.

We're bringing our own anyway this time.

They do but we hopefully won't use it. DS never had one.
