Pacifiers for breastfed babies? Household 6 2 kids; Columbus, Georgia 17761 posts

HELP! What pacifier would your breastfed baby take? We've tried Natursutten, MAM, and Avent. DH is going to BRU now and I'm having him pick up the Binky kind and probably Gumdrops or Soothies. Anything else I should try?

My son used gumdrops and soothies then after awhile he took whatever you gave him but in the beginning it was those two or nothing at all

Have you tried not having a pacifier? My son wouldn't take one and we just ended up going without.

Dude, I'm nursing a newborn and a 2 1/2 year old. I really need this one to take pacifier.

Our oldest spit her pacifier out at two months old, and our youngest would never take one. I never really saw them as necessities, and I don't really think forcing them on a child will do anything.

Dd has never been big on pacis. I wish she were but it makes sense. I mean, I wish thy made one that felt like my n****e, but they don't! Good luck mama. Early on I had the best luck with latex.

I BF all 3, my son took Soothie, my first daughter took Nuk, my second daughter is a month old tomorrow and will kind of take the Soothie but not very well. I think she might be my first pacifier less baby, and although I am not nursing her siblings I really wish she liked a pacifier. Good luck, I hope you find one she likes!

My first two were offered soothers but they never took them. (They were 28 months apart, It's do-able)

not all kids have issues with holding onto them. both of mine were done in their own time before a year. :)

Gumdrop or soothie, but neither lasted long, by 2 months they were both done with the pacifier.

I never really saw pacifiers as a baby necessity either ... Then again that could just be cultural thing

True, plus we all parent differently and every child is different too. :)
