Quoting Captain Obvious:" Sooooo many people told me that pacifiers are made so they don't do any harm to the teeth anymore :roll: ... [snip!] ... sucker or does she still have a pacifier, because all her teeth are shifting forward" :( I felt like such a fail of a mom."


Yeah well it wasn't your fail as a misinformed parent since you corrected it, but rather their fail for continuing to believe it!

DD never liked a pacifier. I tried a few times when she was little and she wouldn't keep it in her mouth, would only suck it if you held it there. Glad it's something I won't have to wean her away from.

basically she said all the top teeth in my daughter's mouth shifted forward...and it's pretty bad so she'll most likely need braces :(

Oh, I believe it. My daughter is full of sass as well. I have never met another 4 year old who is so good at arguing.
