Re: How to stop using boob as a pacifier?

Honestly I have no idea how to wean to a paci unless you are trying to wean entirely. Babies know what they want. A mama substitute is generally not desired by most babies.
I third this, both of my girls live on the boob. I recently was reading a book that referred to pacifiers as "mother replacers" and thought about it and decided I would rather just nurse my lo than replace my breast with a piece of plastic I know it can be rough, my youngest currently is like this (my older dd was for the first years and still nurses many times a day). I nurse her in the mei tai carrier and moby a lot that way I can still get things done. They do outgrow it though, they are only babies for such a short time, just try to enjoy this time
