Not sure if this has been covered here but I saw it on another DDC and wanted to hear some of your opinions.
I have one child who I did not use a pacifier with. I was terrified to use it, didn't want to screw up nursing, etc. My DD was a great nurser but she was an all night nurser for the first 2 years, I mean all night for 2 years. She comfort nursed during the day which was fine, she just loved nursing. At about age 1 she got a cold (she has been super healthy) and couldn't nurse as well bc her nose was stuffed up and I tried a pacifier and she wouldn't have it. So thats my entire experience. By the time I tried she had no interest.
Now with twins on the way I am thinking I just can't not sleep for 2 more years again and nurse like I did with my DD, bc there will be 2 plus I still have her that needs attention. Don't get me wrong I want to nurse when hungry and I don't mind comfort nursing but I think practically it is not going to work the same way. What are people's thoughts on this, especially those of you with multiple kids. If you did use a pacifier what kind did you use? I am thinking maybe just limit it to nighttime after they fall asleep nursing? I guess for me personally my number one concern is that these children sleep better than my DD, am I being unrealistic?
