  10. Re: OHMYGOODNESS!!!! How do I approach this tactfully?

    Re: pacifiers, daycare & return to work!

    Thank you to all. Now that the boycott of the bottle at daycare seems to be resolving, I think I may introduce a paci next week (don't want to start too many new things). Who knows, maybe she will...
