My girls never used a pacifier. I always had them suckle at the breast but when DH went to visit Brayden this morning he said they had a pacifier in his mouth. It upsets me to hear that as i don't understand why i can't drain my breasts via pump and let him suckle at the breast. I'm so frustrated with NICU, but i want the best for my baby. Is this the norm? I know that the AAP recommends pacifiers for SIDS, but what about preemies?
