Throw away the paci or try a new one?

Will all this BPA talk, I have eliminated almost all plastics (especially the toxic ones) from our house. Now my last issue...I realized that dd's MAM paci's are made with polycarbonate and I desperately want to stop using this brand. Only problem is that none of the PBA free ones I have looked at have a similar nipple shape (symmetrically shaped) and I don't think she's going to take to something that different. She's almost 6 mos and still EBF if any of that makes a difference? Should I just get rid of the paci all together or do you have tips on how to change over to using a different shape? TIA!!!

I thought the same thing. my dd uses the MAM also. I've just let her still use it. the part they suck on isn't PC, so I feel a little better about it.
