Alright, gave in this morning in an attempt to keep her quiet while visiting DH in the hospital and it was completely unsuccessful. If anything, it pissed her off more.

Is everyone using a pacifier?
I realized the other day that I don't know anyone who hasn't used a pacifier but Mila hasn't touched one yet and I would really like to avoid it if at all possible. I watched my (much younger) brothers weaning off them and it was such a fight that I'd rather avoid the situation altogether.
