I know in an earlier post most people said that the pacifier did not cause nipple confusion, but wanted to hear from anyone who may have had the opposite experience. We gave him a pacifier a little bit after 2 weeks and the past couple of days he has been having trouble latching and crying at the breast.
Not sure if these things are related, but it is a little frustrating as I have to feed him even more often since he is not eating for long as he spits out the nipple. We haven't fed him with a bottle, it has just been the pacifier that was introduced.
We stopped using the pacifier today and are going to see what happens, but wanted to know if anyone else experienced this or if it is indeed nipple confusion or just a normal fussy baby reaction.
