I can't decide if I want to even have a pacifer on hand just in case. My gut says no, stay away. I plan on breast feeding so I figure baby can use me if it needs to suck. I hope I don't offend anyone by saying this but I just hate seeing 1+ year olds with that plug in their mouth. I have some friends trying to ween their kids from the binkie and it is just horrible. I understand that some babies need to suck but I really want to avoid the whole pacifer thing all together. I think I will be tempted to give it to the baby if I even have one in the house. I mean it doesn't have a pacifer in the womb and does just fine.
