Jules #89 - Pacifier

This is the first night that we have introduced the pacifier also known as the binky. Lately, even the fetal position also cannot put Jules to sleep fast enough and when he wakes up crying, he doesn't want a feed and doesn't need a diaper change. What he needs is someone to pacify him! But we need to sleep dear little one.

There are 2 schools of thoughts:
one - introduce thumb sucking so that he can pacify and soothe himself to sleep. Save on pacifier money, don't need to wash and sterilize it. Also it can never get lost so even if he wakes up crying, you don't have to go searching for his pacifier.
Downside is that it's very difficult to wean it off because it's on him!!!

two - introduce a pacifier. Which we did because we aren't really confident that in the long run we will be able to wean the thumb sucking off.
