You can try different brands, my son only likes MAM. Really though, some babies just don't like them, which isn't a bad thing at all.

It can be a hard habit to break, so it's probably better that he not use a paci. You could try a different kind if you want. My baby had a Soothie then Avent, around 6 months she wasn't interested in them anymore.

This. Also depending on what age he is, he may have trouble latching onto it. My son only take his on occasion (like in the car) & he loses it after about five minutes. But by that time he doesn't even care about it anymore.

Mine never took one, I tried a bunch of different brands. But I'm kinda glad she doesn't like them because I heard it can be hard to get them to quit. I hate seeing 3 year olds running around with them in their mouths.

You might have to try different kinds. My daughter only likes the gumdrop ones.

My daughter only likes the Avent ones. She hates the cherry shape and those almost flat orthodontic ones, Tommee Tippee I think. She didnt take to them straight away either, was at least a couple of weeks.

My first hated them as well, don't force it if he doesn't wnt it.... It's actually nice in the long run. Find another way to soothe him.
