Re: Pacifying! Can someone help me??

DD never took a paci, and I tried several different ones. It just made her mad. But she eventually started doing this weird sucking thing with her tongue and was fine doing that. She grew out of it, so it was simple.

DS took one instantly, no problem. It was the MAM preemie size. I think that can help out too, finding a tiny one for a small baby. Sometimes if it's too big, I think they have a hard time holding it in.

The Happiest Baby guy says that you should sort of "pull" on it so they will suck harder to keep it in. But I haven't had the greatest luck with that technique. HTH!
