river and mountain mama to two amazing girls, 8.25.05 and 1.13.08, and married to my soulmate of 18 yrs
AP Mom to 5
i bought two the other day...i was also concerned about the plastic issue. i bought playtex ones because i had read that they don't use PVC in there products or something. but anyways...i've only offered it to him a couple of times, but he has these periods where he acts like he wants to nurse but when i offer it to him he just trashes around with the nipple in his mouth, screaming like it isn't even there or like he doesn't want it. i'm not sure what to do...i'm wondering if this possibly indicates some other problem.
i'm right there with ya! we've finally got a handle on breastfeeding, so i'd banished pacis for over a week. then, yesterday, i apparently did NOT have a "perfectly good boob" to provide. after several hours of cluster feeding that devolved into ds screaming, sucking on his hands, latching on, growling, then pullllllllllllllllllllling way hard on my nip until he popped off, and screaming again... on repeat, plus being inconsolable through all of our other efforts, he and i both needed a rest. the paci provided it. (and i guess i didn't have perfectly good arms to rock him either, because, after trying those, it was the swing that did the trick. this kid defies several of my previously held conceptions about what "should" be right.)
i think he had some bad gas pains yesterday. he slept and ate well last night, and is doing well so far today. nak, of course, and i thought he might have some nip confusion, but it's ok now.
mama to and, due in November
I use them. Marisol will want to nurse for comfort, but she'll be so full that it starts making her mad. She wants to suck, but doesn't want more food, and the binkie works to satisfy her.

We also have the thrashing/pulling/screaming thing going on (what's that all about?) and gas. A few days ago I decided that maybe my breastmilk (or the thrasing...screaming) was possibly causing the gas and the sucking was really a comfort measure so lets try the pacifier. It really helped to calm him down and get him to sleep. We haven't used it every time but it does work when nothing else does. It's heartening to read that I'm not the only one dealing with the thrashing/pulling/screaming issue and wondering if I'm a bad mama for substituting me with plastic. I am a little concerned about nipple confusion though but we'll see.
taken it day by day.....katie
