I do, but he's not too interested in it. If we don't hold it in his mouth, he spits it out. But we use it when he's fussy, we know he's already eaten (usually twice) and he just wants to suck on something.
I just started using one very sparingly. So far she absolutely won't take it unless she's in her nighttime "I need to suck on something for hours on end" mood. I hope it stays that way. DD and DS both had pacifier's and it was a pain when it came time to get rid of them.
I do, but she doesn't love it. I'm not too worried about the headache of taking it away. We used one with Anna and she loved it until she figured out how to get her thumb into her mouth. That was the end of the paci and she has been a thumb sucker ever since (we have u/s pics of her sucking her thumb in utero, so we were really fighting nature). Lena also tries to suck on her hands, so I imagine the same thing will happen once she is coordinated enough to get her thumb to her mouth. The paci buys me a break when she just wants to suck.
We attempted to give Connor one after a month or so and he also did not like it, didn't take any kind of "fake" nipple, bottle, pacifier, nothing! I'm really glad now that he didn't and most likely will not attempt to give one this time around either.
Both my girls used them and my 20 month old still uses hers but she only uses it here and there and when she's sleeping. I am going to wait till after Zack is here to try and wean her off it. I use MAM brand for both and will again for Zack. I never had any issues with nipple confusion with Hailey either. Madison stopped using hers around 18 months.
