So... do you plan on having some pacifiers (dummys) on hand?

I think we still have the ones I bought for DS1, which he rejected. I never bothered trying other brands, but this time if DS2 doesn't like what we have, I may consider trying one or two different ones. I'll try to get past the "nipple confusion" window before trying any, unless I'm desperate.

Yes for me
It was my lifesaver as I breastfed full time and it avoided me being used as a pacifier. That being said, I was lucky that with my daughter--she just gave it up on her own--no battle at all at 13 months.

I was pretty against them for DD, at least until BFing was well established (and even then I didn't think I'd use them). But someone gave me a few at my baby shower, and when she wasn't quite a week old I resorted to using them since I couldn't handle being her human pacifier. She gave them up on her own between 3-4 months, in favor of her thumb, which we finally got her to stop sucking at 2.5.

So I won't say no for this kid, but I will be better prepared at realizing how much he'll need me in the beginning so I may not be as put off by nursing as much (DD also had a bad latch so it hurt!).

Honestly, I was so relived to hear other BFing moms offered pacififers.. I know a lot of AP type moms are against them because they believe that is what the Mom is for..
but.. the idea of being a human pacifer 24/7 scares the crap out of me!! But I want to BF.. so I am actually hoping this little one will take to a pacifier so they can learn to soothe themselves instead of just me 100% of the time.

We'll see.. my daughter didn't take one until after she was 6 months or so! Then we took it away when she was 2 and she weaned off them really easily.

My 2nd was the only one that took a binky till about 5 months old, the other 2 didn't care for them at all. They are really nice especially when baby just wants to suck which is a natural instinct for them. And they were a life saver in the car with DS#2. I hope this little one takes to one too.

Yay for me. Not all of my kids wanted binkis though. The longest any of my children have used it is till the first day of kindergarten and then it was the end. My youngest still takes hers and its attached to her.

I have never had any issues with nipple confusion. I offered the binki from the very begining, and breastfeeding was never disturbed.

Yep, I love pacis. Admittedly, my kids take pacis easily and give them up just as easy so it isn't a struggle for us at all. Though I will be holding off for a little while until BFing is established to avoid nipple confusion, which is what I did with Norah.

We'll try it. DS1 took one but DS2 refuses so we'll have to see how this baby is when she's born. I have no problem giving her one if she'll take it though.

I'm going to hold off on offering one for as long as I can I think. We'll just have to see how that goes.

Nay for me. I offered them to dd and she always refused. Now I am glad. If baby needs to cimfort suck while he is little, I'll be happy to breastfeed.

My boys never liked them but DD had hers until 2.5, if this baby likes them then I'm ok with him having one.

NAY!! I did not offer either of my girls a paci, I never had an issue with it. At the hospital they kept giving them paci and I kept throwing them away. Every single one of my friends said you are going to wish you had them, and I am the only one who never had to have the give up the paci struggle or where is the paci while the baby is screaming for it issue. All of them came back to me and said, I wish I never started the paci! Two of my friends have 3 year olds with paci's and just cant break them with out hours of screaming.

The first two had them but my youngest refused to take one. She preferred to feed on demand little guts! Which is perhaps why I didn't get a period back till she was 2! I will offer a pacifier this time but won't stress if he/she won't take one.

I'm not opposed to pacifiers, but I will probably try to take it away once the teeth start coming out.

I'm for a paci if they will take it, DS got one from day one and it never hurt his breastfeeding but he also spit it out a month and neve took it again, Dd kept hers till about 6 months and spit it out at the lake and well never took it again, so we will see.
