DD never had a problem with it. Some say it causes nipple confusion and then some say only giving bottles too soon can cause it because there is actually milk coming out. I have yet to meet a nipple confused paci baby but met plenty who became confused by too early bottles.

Either way, I love pacifiers and wish DD would have stuck with them. We never had a supply issue or latch issue and I really hope this baby will get hooked on one because paci babies are so much easier...
