Re: Pacifiers and daycare...?
Some breastfeeding mothers do give a baby a pacifier while they're at daycare. It can help to meet the need for comfort suckling that otherwise would be provided by mom. Others choose not to offer the pacifier, as sucking on the bottle and the pacifier, then going back to breastfeeding, can be difficult for a baby to figure out.
Of course, there are the infants who will outright refuse a pacifier anyway, thus making the choice for you. Here's some more information on it. http://www.llli.org/NB/NBNovDec95p172.html
