Pacifier suggestion for young nursing baby

My babe is 17 days old. She loves to suck, I offer her the breast whenever she asks to suck, but during her cranky time she doesn't want it but still wants to suck. Currently she will suck the pinky finger but it gets old for us.

I would love a BF friendly pacifier option for such a young one. We'd use it as little as possible and don't want any confusion. She does nurse well though so not too worried.

Here we have the avent soothie and the avent classic.

She does okay with the soothie but doesn't do great and prefers the finger. She doesn't suck the classic at all.

Suggestions?

we loved the gumdrops http://thefirstyears.com/gumdrop they are similar to the soothie but have a smaller base

The only ones my baby would take were the MAM pacifiers because of the shape of the nipple. They make a newborn size and a 0-3 months. Keep offering the paci. She might refuse at first, but she might take it as she grows.

DS uses the MAMs. Initially he tried the soothies but then gave them up.

My dd hasn't been fond pacis besides my boob but now that I'm back at work she needs something to soothe her. At first she would sometimes take a soothe but now she only likes the newborn mams. She is 3 months old today.

The old school playtex/gerber ones worked for us. They kinda look like a lates pinkie slightly bulb shaped. I think the latex feels like skin to the pinkie suckers.
