Hi, my daughter is only breastfed and she WILL NOT take a pacifier! She is 2 months old and it is getting to where we can't do anything!! If we are out and she is fussy, she wants to be at the boob...not to eat, she will just suck for a second and then pass right out! She is gaining weight just fine, 95% fine, so I figure that introducing a binky won't cause her to STOP eating and lose any weight. I just need to figure something out so that if we are out and about I don't have to drop everything to whip my breast out for 2 seconds of suckling and then a happy baby! She is on there around the clock!! She sleeps for like 4-5 hour stretches at night, but during the day, we can't leave the house because of her constant need to be at the breast. I don't want to neglect her from it, but I have to go buy groceries run and buy diapers eventually!! I can't stay cooped up in the house! PLEASE HELP!!! I have tried the NUK pacifers because the lactation nurse said that those are the best for exclusively breastfed babies for less nipple confusion. My first daughter was only breastfed and she used a pacifier just fine!!
