Re: stop swaddling but still needs pacifier...ugh

Teach her how to keep it in, while holding her, give her a paci, gently pull on it as if you are pulling it out, so she will suck harder to keep it in, do this several times and she will suck harder to keep it in. I do this with all the fosterbabies in the first week and they get pretty good at keeping it in. I also atach the paci to the munchkin teething blanket that has a piece of elastic to hold the paci. My little one just tirned 4mths old and he is able to get the paci in his mouth most of the time by himself when it is right by his face.
