    RE: Pacifiers

    My ex said no pacifiers for our son (he has 3 other boys <2 different moms> and none of them had a pacifier). That was his 1 rule (mine was no bottles in bed <I was nursing anyway>). My son was SUPER colicky. He never needed a pacifier. Even at his worse with the colic in daycare, I always had a pacifier in his diaper bag, but his care-givers said he wouldn't take it. (I would just come by and give him Mylicon).
    So it's mostly a parental preference. But I totally agree with previous comments. IF you DO decide to let him have it, no-one will fault you. Just don't let him keep it when he's too old for it. Most daycares demand toddlers be off bottles now at 1-year old. (They are supposed to be on sippy cups.) So there is definitely no need for pacifiers at this age, either.

        I can understand everyones concern but most of us have had a thumb to suck. Surely smoking is a substitute for the breast and nipple.In Britain we are fortunate in calling a "Pacifier" a "Dummy" short for a"Dummy Tit"

        Hi John also from the UK and never heard of that, Dummy Tit, wonder what Dummy thought that up.
