Why would you WANT your baby too.... eek.. see too many dependant toddlers with deformed growing teeth.

YAK.

Dizzy, there are pluses to it if you can wean them off of it before they start getting all their teefs.

I know there are some positives, but most people just bung em in the babies gob to shut them up.

They lead to all kinds of issues..... Most people don't use them wisely and as a short term solution, they don't look for WHY baby is crying, and you'll find these kids sucking on dummies at 3 years old, teeth coming through, bawling when they can't have the dummy. And it's not just the odd one or 2 parents... it's LOADS!!

Your decision at the end of the day, but that is MY opinion. Noone has to agree.

i agree. nothing drives me more insane than a crying 4 year old and a parent who shoves a binky it's in gob to shut it up.

UH, your KID (not baby. KID) should probably be able to SPEAK to you and ASK for what it wants or needs by now....

And of course you know that her looks can and probably WILL change on a weekly basis, LOL

She may end up LOOKING just like you too! As soon as her dark hair lightens, and her skin lightens I bet you will be amazed at how much you both resemble one another

Dr's say that pacifiers at night can actually help reduce SIDS as well.

and what is the difference between a toddler with a paci or a toddler that thumb sucks? Both are terrible for the teeth but the thumb can't be taken away.

and the paci's arent the problem... it is parents that don't want to deal with their kids.

Hannah uses one because she LOVES to suck even when she is not hungry.... and sucking helps relieve the pain of teething as well.
