We’ve been trying to wean M.¬†off the generic, hospital-issued pacifiers for a couple weeks. We’re hoping to get her to use a store-bought binky that has a strap that attaches to her clothes so she can’t lose it. She hasn’t seemed all that interested in the new model, and after a few minutes we inevitably replace it with the old one. This morning, however, she came up with a new trick.
She now likes to place the new binky into her mouth, then pull it out by the cord, producing a satisfying “pop” each time she does it. Giggles ensue, and she repeats. $3.99 for easy entertainment.
