Any tips to get a baby to take a soother? Ryder doesn't like any of the ones we have tried.
Hee! My son, too. He just doesn't care about pacifiers.Pandora|1315429823|3012010 said:I think some just won't have anything to do with them. I tried hard with Daisy but she always spat them straight out and got frantic if I tried holding it in. She's basically only ever been interested in real nipples...
Micah was similar - he didn't have latch issues, but he simply had no desire for a paci until he was a few months old and realized he liked it. Before that, he chewed on his blankies, which we came to call Chew Blankies as a result. He still is very attached to his blanky and paci, which he calls a poppy.Hudson_Hawk|1315399510|3011502 said:Aidan had serious latching problems until he was about 6 weeks old. He couldn't take the soothie or gumdrop or my nips, just the bottle nipple. We finally got him to take the Avent pacis and he loves them. I like them because 1. they come with caps to cover the nipple when it's in the diaper bag, etc and 2. They make glow in the dark ones which is a huge help in the middle of the night.
Aidan still needs his at 12 mo. We went about 2 weeks without it but then he regressed with teething.
