For example: nursing in the car, when baby is freaking out screaming, and you don't want to (or can't ) get back there to pop a bub in their mouth, you just give them the binky and pray that it lasts long enough to get you to where you're going.
Or: late at night, you and dh are getting busy, baby is next to you, wakes up, pop in the binky until you finish, then give him/her the bub.
Other than that, for us, seems pointless.
Here as mama to W (2/04), R (5/06), D (7/09), and J (12/9/12!), co-parenting with my DH
I WOH part-time, am a doula & childbirth educator, home/unschool, and hope we are nearing the center of chaos

Although you'll be surprised how, um, flexible your breasts can be with a crying baby in the carseat. I'm sure some motorists have caught a glimpse of more than they were expecting!!
