We use them. I have a fast flow and lots of milk and sometimes mine just want to suck but don't want to eat. My 2nd never took one, but my first and third have shown definite preferences -- sometimes they want to nurse, sometimes they want a paci. I see them as age-appropriate for babies. It's something that gives her a lot of comfort. I think even mainstream parents have pretty strong views about them sometimes.
