I was anti-paci before my lo as well! But it has truly been a life saver! She likes to suck and I am not always there to whip out the breast
It helps her sleep! I try to only give it to her when she is cranky and needs to sleep! It also has helped her become an "all-night-sleeper" since 2 months! Some claim it causes nipple confusion, but my lo DEFINITELY knows the difference -- it helps us determine whether she is hungry or just wants to suck, she will deny it if she is hungry or get immediate sleepy eyes if she wants to suck it to sleep!
