Re: Paci to Soothe
Most guidelines say to wait at least 3-4 weeks before introducing a pacifier. Babies suck differently on pacis than they do on the breast, and sometimes that can mess up their willingness or ability to latch. Another potential problem is that if a baby gets her sucking needs met by a paci, she may not nurse as often as she should. That's not to say you must not use a paci- it's just to point out the potential drawbacks.
Is baby ever content to be on you, but not nursing? Like if you wore her in a sling or wrap or something? A lot of babies just hate being put down.
