Hi there...am a first time mum...my baby soothes herself on my breast for long periods of time...she is a little over 8weeks and has colic...wanted to know if its a good idea to give her a pacifier or maybe not? What would you do?

Both my two daughters at first had a hard time keeping it in their mouth....At first I would hold it in for them...eventually they figured it out. I took the pacifiers away around 1 yr. for during the day....they could have them at nap and bedtimes. Then at 2 yrs gone completely. For both of mine it was easy. My first started biting hers and got a chap chin....The pacifier irritated the chin so she just stopped using it. The other daughter I just cut the tip and she did not like the feel...2 days later she did not want it.

Hi Sarah...how did you introduce the pacifiers? Did your kids just take to them immediately? And at what age did you withdraw them?

Yes I would. Both of my two kids that I nursed had pacifiers. It is a lifesaver.
