My son is 10 months +. I did not give him pacifier since birth. He naps twice a day and each time about one hour. Is it true that baby without pacifier sleeps lesser?
a pacifier is to shut the baby up. and if you did not start it frm baby, then dont even think about it. he's almost one oredi, he'll be fine.. and naps will b lesser. simply coz he's grown up not bcoz he doesnt hav a pacifier.
give yourself a pat at the back, no pacifier is good!
agree with julee is not a must as it is just to shut cranky babies up only. All along i didnt like the idea of pacifier but bo bian dear son too cranky have to give him.
I never use pacifier on my dear daughter, Zann too. By giving this plastic device to shut young children is like blocking their communication means ie. crying. But, my dear daughter has the habit of sucking thumb since then. How I wish the habit can go cos her thumb looks ugly now.
I tried giving dear daughter once when she was a baby but she throw it out so I've stop... but with dear son now gg 3 mths I've 2 give cause he's a heavy drinker n cranky sumtimes.... hmmm no choice
i gave my dear daughter pacificer to pacify her
i gave her oni when she cries & gg to sleep ..
i will try not to give her pacificer unneccessary
Both my dds were given pacifier when they were baby.... Took it off them from 1 yr old onwards....
Of cos pacifier is not a must. I dont give pacifier to my girl during my confinement when i was at my parents' place, it was my mother in law who spoiled my no-pacifier plan after i went back hm as my baby is too cranky and she said babies will "auto reject" pacifier at certain age which is what i've been waiting for till now...
Ive tried to give mine during confinement but he spit it out..so till now he dnt use pacifier...btw just curious wht is dear son and dear daughter stand for? i knw dear daughter is for girl and vice versa...
my dear daughter had a pacifier since baby,now still taking when she want to sleep.i've given my dear son bt he dont want so till now going 8mths,he didn't take pacifier e all.
i gave dear daughter pacifier when she is about 2 mths old..hwell, cos her mouth seems to be itching for sumting to suck so just try..now i give it to her when she makes noise or when she wanna sleep..wanted NOT to gove her that but..now started ..heh.
Same, notti boy want to chew on sumthing... then everytym suck until his whole fist all his saliva.. So no choice lorz... then now so habitual that wheneva he want to fall asleep he will search for his pacifier not us... sad... haha
I didn't wanted to introduce my dear son to pacifier but when he was only a few weeks old he had colic and kept crying . No matter what we did or how we tried pacifying him it was useless . Until we had no choice and left us the last resort which is to give him the pacifier . Bt as time goes by it becomes a habit . And now without a pacifier , he will wail like there's no tomorrow .
It's a good thing thou , that pacifier is not introduce . Won't have a hard time weaning off it . (n_n)
I seriously agree!!!!
i regret to give dear son pacifier..is a MUST for him now when he sleep..else he will get very cranky..
But he only need it for his nap and at night.
Pacifier is not a must for baby.. But I gave it to my 2 out of convenient and to shut them up as they are so cranky and i have low tolerance for noise ..
Regretted but thank GOD, they wean off easily at 18mo.. Phew..
My dear son has a habit of sucking his fingers. It was until he fell sick then I thought of introducing him to pacifier. Too bad he doesnt want it, he'll pull the pacifier out and swing it around like a toy
I had introduced to my boy since birth but he rejected. And now he is still doing fine. At your child's 10 month, he must have alot of activities waiting for him to explore hence shorter nap rest I guess
