I must have my pipie.
Heh. The grief I received for ever introducing the binky to our now-3 year old. I love it!
I never gave any of my kids pacifers. It was either the bottle or they sucked on my finger.
What is the theory behind this? Does it keep the airway open, possibly linking SIDS to some underdeveloped neuromuscular issues?
Perhaps it keeps the mattress from smothering the babys nose. A little air pocket created by the binky.
All my babies had 'em and loved 'em. It was very soothing to them. I saw no reason to deny my children that just so I could show others I had control.
This is my new daughter, Rebekah, born November 30.
She has a binkie, but isn't really interested in it right now. She prefers the real thing.
