my 3 month old is exclusively breastfed and drools and sucks on his hand a lot but won’t take a pacifier what an I do?
My advice, Don’t try or give her one.The hospital gave my daughter one the day she was born & the second we left the hospital,I threw it away. There’s no need for them & depending on the child,but in most cases it almost turns in to an addiction for the child & parents go through milestones trying to stop or take the pacifier away once the become toddlers. In some cases I’ve know parents that have had 5,6, & 7 year olds that could not break the habit. There is no need for a pacifier. Use age appropriate toys & interaction to entrrtain your child. Trust me it may seem like it might solve some problems now(crying mostly) but it in the end it will take you years to break the habit & cause much more stress on you & your child! Do not give her/him a pacifier or push it on them. Be GRATEFUL YOUR CHILD DOESN’T WANT IT , TRUST US ALL!
