MOST HELPFUL POSTS

I am a mother of 3 and a grandmother of 6 and some of these children would take a pacifier and some would not. The ones that wouldn't usually found their fingers or thumbs. My first child was born with a callus on his pointer. There was no such thing as having multiple ultrasounds back then but the nurses said he sucked this finger in the womb. My girls would not take a pacifier and the 1st grandchildren to take a pacifier were my 3 years old twin girls. They sucker on them in the hospital and still use them at bedtime and naps. The pacifiers do just that--pacify. The twins don't always ask for it but when they do, in my opinion, it should be given to them. They will be 4 years old soon and I think they will give their "pacies" up before they start kindergarten. Their teeth have not been affected.
