My oldest took a Nuk for about 6 months before she started sucking her thumb. She's the only one I got to take a pacifier.

Nora STILL sucks her thumb...but only when she's tired.

Or maybe it's because I literally have small humans attached my tits 20 hours a day and I would like to, ya know, eat some soup or take a shower.

Seriously why are you getting so defensive? All I said was my son wouldn't take one even though I tried. If your LO has refused so many kinds maybe its just not going to work. Don't act like I'm on here saying your a shit mom for wanting your kid to take a paci.

my girl has never been good at keeping a paci in her mouth, randomly she would keep it in for a little bit, but mostly chews awkwardly on it or pushes it out with her tongue. She has dicovered that sucking on her first 2 fingers is much better, and sucks on them all the time...oh goodie. I wouldn't mind finding a paci that she sucks on properly that I can give her when shes in a fussy mood or has trouble getting to sleep, or for outings if she gets fussy. I kinda hope she doesn't become too fond of her finger sucking

It was your choice to tandem nurse. Wean your 2 year old if you can't juggle them both.



Both of mine took MAM until about 5 months old. First was bottle-fed, the second breastfed.

Mallory loved her Soothies when she was super young and then would only take the Nuk kind.

My older 2 had pacifiers. They each liked different kids. My first son wasn't real picky, but my 2nd one would use those big blue ones you get at the hospital. My youngest refused all binkies no matter what type. He insisted on being a thumb sucker. If the baby doesn't want a binky, there isn't much you can do to force them to like it.

Since you've tried so many kinds its possible LO won't take any. DS would take the soothies for about 2-3 weeks and then didn't want them anymore. We tried a bunch of kinds and nothing worked. He just wasn't a paci baby(thank god IMO)

I thought that at first too. I mean the thumb is awesome in the middle of the night,etc. Now that LO is 18 months though and still sucking his thumb... I have no clue how to get him to not do that. lol :) I figured I got a ways to go before I can start talking to him about it and him understanding. With my binky babies, I just took it away and it wasn't a big deal.
