Gimme a break, here. Dig under the cushions of the couch. Check under the car seat; Find the one the dog had buried under the swing set, brush it off and plug it in.

My little one is now 2 1/2, today we went on the Cape May ferry to Delaware, and this little three foot tall guy kept grabbing me by the hand and pulling me to the door saying "come on, lets go, daddy" so we could walk around the deck and watch the waves and the gulls and whatever else caught his fancy. Its worth the teething and diapers and everything else.

Not my kid, but definitely my favourite pacifier. Wisht I'da had one for her so I could threaten her with showing a pic like this at her wedding reception:

By the third, the pacifier was kicked across the floor by the first or the second to the third...who was grateful, by the way...as the elders were hoping the Welfare were going to arrive any moment to gather them up and place them in a good home. Ed?!! Where were you when I needed you???

Thank you for that, MMD. That's a riot!

mmd --> :D :D

We used to have six pacifiers around. One in each car, one for the baby, one on the mantel and the other two usually lost.

The pediatrician maintained that we shouldn't be using the durn things at all. But when we noted the comfort the baby took from them we just couldn't take 'em away.

Ed, the next time you find one keep it for yourself. The rest will fall in line.

12-01-2002, 03:49 PM
We keep some around the shop (along with an actual pair of rose colored glasses) for customers who complain about the cost of keeping their $50,000+ toys in top shape when they insist on crashing them every other summer weekend. Gets the point across with humor and eliminates that most unpleasant species- rich, whiney adults! :D

Hey, if an "All day sucker" gets us a couple minutes of quiet I'm all for it. OOPS! Gotta go, guess who's calling...

I always kept a pocketful of the grubby things, but the really organized moms seem to use those clip-on straps.

How are the nights, Ed?

Know what? I think it's time we see pictures of the little bugger.

If we put pics of ourselves and families on the internet that's our own choice. We can choose to take whatever risks that implies. Ed is in a different circumstance with his little tacker. Zach is not really *his*, and Zach's little life is extremely vulnerable just now. If there weren't creeps out there it would be fine, but as we all know only too well, there are creeps out there, who hurt and exploit kids, especially vulnerable ones.

Much as we would all love to enjoy the photos, I for one do not think posting a foster child's picture is safe, wise, or ok.

I wish this kind of caution were never necessary. But I do think it is.

really should buy those things by the dozen

Never used them. She found more interesting things like snails and cigarette butts to put in her mouth.

And when they're old enough to move on and leave the soothers behind, tell them the soother fairie (like the tooth fairie) will come. So they put them under their pillow, the soother fairie comes while they sleep and takes them to her land where they get hung on a soother tree. Worked for us! :)

Now grown, our daughter told us that was a good thing to do (as opposed to wrenching them away, or going into "NO!" mode). She said she found it comforting at the time. Seemed to work for both our kids.

me neither, , my take on it is that pacifiers are for parents and not babies.

Out little monster Griffin (now 20 months) decided at about 6 months that he was done with pacifiers. Just spit it out one day and hasn't touched 'em since unless it's just in play.

I guess that Ed sat in a plane for 20 hours flying to NZ next to a screeming little &%^%, seemed so cute at first :) then after a few hours of screeing wasn't so cute :rolleyes: and by the end of the flight was absolutely ugly.:eek:
