From day one Hali has been a pacifier baby which I am okay with. However, there is only one binki she likes and it's the big huge green one from the hospital which is the easiest for her to knock out! When Hali was in the NICU they were constantly dipping the pacifier in the "Sweet-Ease" which is basically sugar water!! It took us quite a while to get her to take the pacifier without that stuff, but we finally did it. So I should be happy that she just takes it without the 'sweet-ease' right? Wrong, now that she has found her mouth with her hands she is constantly knocking it out of her mouth because she wants to suck on her hands too. The only way she will go to sleep is with the pacifier, but when she wakes up in the middle of the night (sometimes 10 times) and her pacifier is not in her mouth she freaks out. I have tried to just let her cry herself to sleep many many times, but for whatever reason it doesn't work with her (she only gets more upset!) I could only stand to hear her cry for 40 minutes max! As you can see I have bought many different kinds of pacifiers, but she will only take the hospital one! Not to mention the hospital pacifier should only be used up to three months of age! I am desperate, any suggestions?
