There is no doubt in our minds that Roo hates pacifiers. She used to like them – the ones in the hospital. However, since she’s been home, she intensely dislikes them. We put them in her mouth to try to soothe her but she spits them out instantly. Even when she is calm and we try them she spits them out.
The orange soothies from the hospital were the best and she sucked on them while in the hospital for the nurses. Since then we’ve tried various brands – a total of four other brands, including one brand that moms reviewed and said that their babies took them when they rejected all others. Roo?! Nope, she spit it out instantly.
I’m OK with her disliking pacifiers but that means that she turns to me and my breast for comfort. Also, I was hoping that she’d suck on a pacifier while sleeping but no such luck! I hope that when she learns that she can suck on her fingers that she’ll suck her thumb – is it odd that I want her to do this?!
Does your baby love or hate pacifiers? If love, which kind worked for you?
