Re: Pacifiers? Bottles? Help, please.
we have been successful with soothies and breastflow bottles... but we introduced them at the hospital and within the first week... so we just made our own rules.
I don't recommend it for everyone... but we are being successful with both. However, she doesn't just take the paci, I have to hold it in for a few secs of her screaming and she finally takes it. Most people probably would have given up... but I'm persistent, so she eventually takes it... and when she's tired she takes it immediately. We only use a pacifier in extreme situations, when she seems to be comfort nursing, going to sleep, or screaming in her carset.
