So far I have not used a pacifier with my DD...she will be 5 mths next week. I am starting to get nervous about the odd time when I am not the one to put her to sleep at night. While I am on mat leave it is really maybe once a month since I sing in a band and do band gigs... Last night my mom watched her and my mom got very distressed because she said she could tell she was tired and wanted to sleep, but could not fall asleep without sucking...her finger didn't work and we don't use a paci, so it was very hard for her and I came home from rehearsal and once nursing she fell asleep right away.
Is it possible to introduce one this late and have it used infrequently?
What kinds are the best?
I know it may be a lot to ask to have her take a paci so infrequently, but I'm not sure how else to satisfy her sucking need when I am not around....
