I do not like pacifiers. I think they are gross. It is totally fine for other people to use them, but I always hoped to avoid them with my baby. Of course, when you have a child you have to go with what they need and for a short while it seemed that I was losing the binkie battle. We introduced a binkie to Ted and he accepted it. BUT then he discovered his hand :) It took a while, but he has perfected the art of thumb sucking and is was like, "binkie who?" You go Ted!
Such a happy baby :)
