Well, the binkie fairy has come. Our pediatrician (and dentist) have recommended using the pacifier (DD's beloved nay nay) just for when its absolutely necessary. She is addicted to the thing so we are starting off at nap time, car rides and bed time. Omg, you guys, its so sad to hear her pine for the thing and search for it. I'm afraid when Alex comes she is going to snatch his (which I will wait to give for at least the first two weeks even if my boobs are falling off) and make off with it to her secret lair. I feel like the worst parent evar with her begging me for it. I'm hoping its just a week or two of misery for us both.
Is it wrong that I hope that Alex never takes one? I did it in the beginning with DD because my boobs were literally bleeding, and it felt like a thousand tiny needles stabbing me in the boob every time I nursed (comfort nursing was a real slog for me). I was in tears and finally decided to give her a bink. She has been in love with them to the point of addiction since. Especially since BF didn't work out for us. We LOVED BF. Like, we enjoyed the time together and when my supply dried up I cried and cried (with her because she was not a fan of formula in the beginning). So this whole pacifier thing is like reliving the BF failure or something crazy like that.
I'm just venting because right now she's crumpled on the floor pining for her nay nay. Its like someone died for her. Lord save me.
