Reply to She only takes the pacifier to soothe :(

I was determined to use pacifiers with my kids. I have a little sister that never used one and sucked her thumb. And that habit didn’t break til almost her teen years. It cause awful dental issues and she had to go through so much to correct it. Because of that I’ve been terrified to let my kids suck their thumbs. Also they say pacifiers help prevent SIDS so that was an extra boost to use them. But with my daughter she got very attached and had a hard time breast feeding as we introduced it too soon. So with my son we were determined to get our breastfeeding well established before giving him one, and they hospital gave him one without asking us 🤦🏻‍♀️ and he was hooked. But I am grateful that both our kids took to the pacifiers over thumb sucking and we got our daughter past that phase before weaning her off the pacifiers so now she needs neither! They helped us so many times on car rides or restaurants or even the movies (she’d take her pacifier and sleep the whole time) so they can be very convenientu
