Buy a thousand of these–they’re the best!! I learned about these while at the hospital, and I’ve never gone back to any other kind. I’m a believer in pacifiers–I would much rather take a pacifier away than a thumb! Plus, they have saved my sanity and helped my babies soothe themselves in the car, and at home. I’ve had six babies, and all of them took a pacifier except the last one. Let’s just say it was a very different experience that time around, and really wished she would have taken one!
