Take the GD pacifier!!

OMG this kid will NOT take a pacifier.  Such a switch from my daughter who we used the jaws of life to get the paci away from.  Poor little guy just wants to suck and suck but mommy's boobies can't be a paci when we are driving his sister to school :)/  I've even tried dipping it in sugar water to get him to take it, yeah I know there are going to be some raised brows on this one.  Thank god he is starting to find his hands and fingers.

Re: Take the GD pacifier!!

  • DD doesn't like it nearly as much as DS did, but she will take it some.  She's also starting to find her fingers so I'm thinking she might be more interested in that once she figures it out.

    Have you tried different brands?

  • yeah we have one of every brand ever made, seriously.  I just went down the aisle and put every one in the cart, not a cheap day.

    This made me laugh!  I'm sorry that your LO won't take the pacifier :(  I would just keep trying to offer it.  Some days our DD will take it, some days she won't.

    I just want you to know that I feel your pain!  I go back to work a week from Monday and already feel bad for my day care providers!  I just keep trying...

  • I feel the exact same way. I have bought and tried 5 different shapes and brands of pacifiers plus the soothies from the hospital and she hates them all. Makes herself practically gag over it touching her mouth (a bottle too). She's starting to suck her hand which is some relief for my boobs. My worst problem with the whole situation is that I have all these pacifiers that come in 2's and half the packages aren't used. I feel like I've wasted money.

  • I know how you feel! I always said I wouldn't give my LO a pacifier and now I'm going crazy wishing she'd just take it! I'm a little worried about introducing a bottle in a week or two

  • I'll go you one better and admit that dd sometimes almost gags trying to get it out of her mouth, but I still keep putting it in even after she does that!  She will eventually take it, so I just keep trying.

  • Know you you feel! I am going to keep trying until he does! He is going for his thumb, but DH sucked his thumb until he was 8 (needed a special retainer to get him to stop) and I don't want that for DS!

    I have 4 kinds and keep trying them over and over - so far NUK and MAM he will take easier but never for too long. GL!!

  • Neither one of my other children ever took a pacifier and so far LO won't either unless it's offered by DH.

  • Same problem here....  I can only have her on my boob for so long! So far she will only take the MAM sometimes but not for long and I have to stay there making sure she doesn't spit it out. I much prefer a pacifier over her fingers, too.  I sucked my thumb WAY WAY WAY too long and don't want to have to deal with the emotions of trying to watch my baby wean off it!

  • My daughter took a pacifier no problem at two days old, but a week ago she started to refuse it and now we cannot get her to take it. She just opens her mouth wide and lets it fall out or turns her head away. I'm just going to give up for a while, maybe she'll be interested again in a couple weeks.
