my first daughter took to a pacifier so well and i guess we got spoiled that way bc she was never fussy! But now my 8 week old is breastfed mostly and she will NOT take a pacifier so im finding it really hard to know when she is hungry, tired, or just fussy! I was wondering what people do to calm down their babies when they dont take pacifiers?? I have to swaddle her and walk her all around the house for her to settle and then nod off to sleep. But my back is killing me and i want her to be able to comfort herself someday so she can get to sleep on her own, i just dont know how to go about that. Any advice?
oh and did anyone's baby not take a pacifier at first and then accept it? we are still trying her to take it even tho she is almost 2 months old.
