I use the NUK brand of binky for my 3month old son. Its contours are similar to a mother's nipple which makes it easier to suck on, plus it's also BPA free!

I would say none My son tryed a few trypes at first but I ended up just breastfeeing on demand and he was content with out one as long as he had been fed and burped. as long as a baby fulfills their need to suck while nursing they shouldnt have to uses a pacifire to be pacified.

i use the cheapest one and it looks like a cherry its the happy baby ones and they are really good cause wen they suck on them it actually flattens to a different shape in there mouth like a nipple does. if she/he is less than 3 months old get a 3-6 month one cause the new born ones are to small to comfort them :) GOOD LUCK

I breast fed my daughter until she was 6 mos. I used the MAM brand, don't know if they're best, but it worked for her. The hospital gave out the playtex ones.

I nursed my son until he was 11 1/2 months old, and about to start weaning my 11 month old daughter as well. I've only used Avent Pacifiers. They're BPA Free and they're the only Pacifiers I've seen that come with a cover. They both like them and I'm a happy Mommy as well.

Hope this helps a bit.

Hi! I have a 16 month old daughter, Roxanne and we live in beautiful British Columbia, Canada! I'm not sure if you have the same brands where you are but after tryin several different brands I found that the NUK NUK brand was what she took to! I've used these brands since she was 3 months and they even make bottle nipples the same shape to hopefully help you wean from breastfeeding to bottles! They have A LOT of different sizes, not like some other brands! Good luck! It's all trial and error......
