my baby (2 weeks old) LOVES the pacifier. but i had heard if you are breastfeeding (or trying to) that a pacifier can cause nipple confusion. but they told us in the hospital that he finds a pacifier VERY soothing, as they used it during several medical procedures he had to calm him. and there is no question it calms him.
so, how can you tell if he's hungry versus if he would benefit from the pacifier alone (no feeding)? any tips?
