Keep trying, and try the one she got at the hospital. She may not like it much at first, but pacifier saved my breasts and my life. Drip a bit of your milk on it and pop it in her mouth. We used to do what we called "plug and a hug" where you sorta hold the baby against your body so the pacifier doesn't pop out and you hug, and pat and rock. Many parents are anti-pacifier, but I had four kids; tow were hooked on their "yucky" (long story) they are teens now and the dentist and orthodontist see not issues. i knew they'd not go to school with it, so why not use it if it helps?
