ok, it's me again. this time i want to know who's in favor of thumbsucking, because I AM. i bf my 2 mo old exclusively, but sometimes he just wants to suck, and honestly it makes me nuts after a while. i'd like to get up and do something else! and he has turned his nose up at just about every paci i've tried. SOMEtimes he likes the soothie we got in the hospital, but he doesn;t hold onto it himself, so that defeats most of the purpose of it. he does, however, love to suck on his fist, and every so often he gets his thumb and forefinger in there, but makes a face and pulls them out, then sticks the whole fist in again. he has conked out while doing that, but while also being walked and/or rocked and/or hummed to... so bottom line, i'm planning to encourage the thumb/finger sucking as a self-soothing method.
opinions, options? if your LO takes a paci, which one?
