Do you have a Binkie baby?
Or when baby comes do you plan to offer a Paci?
I did not want to but When I have to leave him with DH he has nothing to comfort him so we started trying to give him one.

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.

Thank you, Bokkechick, for my beautiful siggy.

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.

Cameron very rarely takes one and when he does he only takes one kind, the nuk latex ones. He much prefers to use me as a paci!!

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.
