Thanks ladies. And I'm not offended by anybody's criticism/opinion; I appreciate it. I'm not here to argue or prove a point. I'm here to get other mom's experience/opinions to help my baby.



According to research, there are a lot of pros and cons to pacifiers and thumb s*****g. All I know is that I want what's best for my child no matter what statistics & research says. The only reason why I felt the paci was "bad" for her is because she never cried this much before getting so attached to the paci which makes me believe she was a happier baby without the paci. Note: I introduced the paci to her at 1 month.



I'm going to call the pediatrician today. Thank you everyone for your opninions.

Yes, there are pros and cons to pacifier use. Absolutely right! BUT there are significant cons to cutting a pacifier up and giving it to your infant and flat out denying your newborn comfort suckling. In fact, there are only cons to both...

I'm not just going to go with what the pediatrician is going to say. I just want to gather as much info as I can before making a decision. Thanks for your time.

She is a baby... there is no research. She is 2 months old. I can see if she was 12 months old. God you are insane...

The Pedi will tell you the same thing we all have. You should be smart enough that shit changes, one year pacis are bad, other years its great to prevent SIDS.



Dont be stupid. She s*****g to soothe herself, and all you do is upset her and make her suck in air.



Give the baby the paci, worry about weaning and shit later.

Give that poor baby her paci back! At 2.5 months old, she doesn't have any other coping mechanisms. s*****g is her comfort. I know it's frustrating to have to wake up to find it but that only takes a minute or two... be thankful she's not waking to feed every hour... as she gets older, she'll learn different ways to comfort herself and be able to go longer without it and eventually, be able to pick it up herself. I took my boys' pacifiers away cold turkey by 2 years old. My 4-month-old loves his. :-)

I just spoke to my pediatrician. She said this is not uncommon, and some parents do take away the paci at this point (depending on situation bc each child is different).



After gathering all info (you guys, research, Dr, family), I've decided to give it back to her but limit her to usage (nap and bed time only). I won't be giving it to her during the day while she's up for play so she don't become so dependent on it.



Thanks again ladies. Whether you were rude or nice, I really do appreciate you taking your time to help me. God bless.

Pacifiers actually reduce the risk of SIDS as well... please just give your baby her pacifier.

I would rather have a happy and non fussy baby, then one that cries to be self soothed. Remember that.

This is my thought exactly. It sounds like she's going through a growth spurt. Instead of a pacifier, try feeding her a couple extra ounces or letting her nurse.
