Is your baby throwing up? I'm talking projectile vomiting not little burp ups or vomiting regularly?
DD1 did also have a very strong suck need but with her I introduced the paci at the hospital. She was a champ nurser from day one so I had no fear giving it to her and she used it for three months. This LO was not as strong as a nurser at first which is why I just introduced the paci now. Of course now she is not so into it. Just me.

Thankfully she did tucker out at around midnight and slept until 5am without eating!
