The three older girls? Total paci girls (they all took a little cajoling) until they went to the paci fairy. E still has hers! I know, we need to work on that!
But, if you follow along on Facebook (holla at me!) you know I’ve been lamenting that B wouldn’t take a paci. I tried so many of them over and over. She wanted to soothe by sucking put couldn’t get her mouth right to take one. They just popped out. But I kept trying.
Finally, this weekend, we turned a corner. I tried the oldest of old school pacis. I bought for them oldest over 7 years ago because they were just like the ones that I used when I was a baby (and a toddler!)
The proof? See. Twinsies.
Sidenote: I never really saw it before but I think E might look like me here. And, what a cherub by sister was!
Some people might not like the idea of a paci, or fingers or thumb, but when it helps to soothe, and I can take it away (or send it to the paci fairy), I’ll take it!
Take home message: Never give up! It even applies to pacifiers for your kiddos.
