My first son, who’s a toddler now, never took pacifiers as a baby. We weren’t completely against them and we did offer more than just a few different types from all different brands. He never used it for more than a few minutes, in fact, he couldn’t even hold it in his mouth. So we gave up!
With our 2nd baby, who’s 3 months old now, he was in the NICU for 2 weeks. Since he couldn’t have the comfort of mom and dad whenever he wanted, the nurses offered a pacifier to him and he often used it. Now that he’s home we often offer him other ways of comfort — but there are sometimes when nothing works like a pacifier!
I’ve offered him a few different kinds, but there’s nothing like Nuby’s “Mini Brites” pacifier — specifically for ages 0-3, which is perfect for my tiny preemie baby who at 3 months old is only 9 pounds! We love the size and shape of this pacifier, it fits in his mouth comfortably and unlike many others, he’s able to hold it in instead of spitting it out. They come in a few different colors and patterns, for both boys and girls.
We have this adorable little blue one with a train for our little boy!
We make sure that whenever we leave the house, this pacifier is attached to his favorite blanket. Often, it’s the ONLY thing that will keep him quiet on a car ride! I can’t say enough about this cute but simple pacifier from Nuby. My little one loves it!
