I hate dummies and don't understand why anyone would put a artificial piece of plastic in their babies mouth, it looks awful!

A womans breast is designed to nourish, nurture and comfort a baby, why replace what nature intended? Before everyone jumps down my throat no my daughter is not permenantly attached to my boob and she does not thumb suck as her comfort needs are met by me.

My 3 month old has had one since birth. His Dr suggested it since he sucked his thumb alot in the womb.(every sono pic he has his thumb in his mouth) He only gets it in bed
( his crib or playpen)
Of course now that he is discovering his feet he loves his toes

I say Yes, but Orgnic Pacifiers are better. Go to babygoesgreen.org, they have lots of pacifier choices, among other things.

I was very much against pacifiers ( or dummys as we call them in Oz ), but they have been a godsend for my lil bou when he was fussy etc. Very much like the other bubs, he used to put anything AND everything in his mouth so this stops that :) He doesn't have it a lot...only when he is tired or hungry...

I never approved of pacifiers before I had my daughter cause I would see 3 and 4 year olds still using them. But now my daughter uses it. If she didn't have it she would have her fingers in her mouth at least 2 or 3 of them. She doesn't use it alot but when she starts to get hungry or tired she has it and it calms her down really good.

It saved me.. I am a young mom and 10 minutes after my daughter came out I started breastfeeding and no joke she was on my book like as often as Id let her, and she would cry if she was off for more then 25 minutes. So the dr suggested a binki.. and man oh man it helped!!

i wasn't crazy about them until my son started hating them and 3 months later he became a thumb sucker. now i kind of wish he liked his pacifier because that can be taken away when he turns 1, you can't exactly take away the thumb.

Before the little one was born I was very anti pacifier. But the first night he needed to suckle and wouldnt stop crying so I sent my husband out for one. It was probably the best thing we couldve done at that point. Now, at almost 4 months, he will take it when he really needs to but for the most part he wants nothing to do with them.

i was a no pacifier baby and because i sucked my finger i had to have a retainer to widen my jaw for four years and then braces to straighted the teeth that had grown in wrong for four more. i am pro pacifier because i can remove it, it is not nice to remove a finger.

Yes, sometime, they just help with a fussy baby. _And I think they're cute_
