Well.. after probably $35 spent on trying every pacifier brand available in our town LOL… I have given up on the pacifier for Owen…
*SO! If you want a pacifier msg me! I have MAM, Gerber, Avent & Playtex ones available! A little soap and you got a brand new barely used pacifier!*
Its just puzzling to me how some babies refuse them. I mean he acts like he wants one… because he will suck on his hand, and my thumb :-\ – but you stick a pacifier in his mouth and it just sits there, or he makes a face and spits it out.
The only time I can successfully get him to suck on a pacifier, is if I wear him. Strange huh?
Getting Owen to bed has become a challenge… he fights it and he acts like he wants comfort…
Yet you try to rock him and he fights you.
The only thing that honestly calms him is the bottle…
I have never been one to put a baby to bed with a bottle… I always heard it was horrible for babies to get into that habit… and once they get teeth it can cause decay issues? but he cries for something! I just dont know what to do…. The other day I will admit, I let him fall asleep with a bottle in hand (just like this photo shows). He holds it very well for not even being 5 months.
The only other thing he likes is his blanket. He will suck on it… but even that doesnt seem to do the trick some nights.
I will continue to try different things. I would prefer he didnt require a bottle to get to sleep with… but when you have two other kids and you are at your wits end to get him to sleep… it will have to do.
If any of you moms have dealt with this before, leave me some tips! 🙂
