She started sucking at about 2 months old. And hasn't ever stopped. It was cute at first, then at a year she was still constantly sucking her fingers. By 2 it went down to when she was cranky, tired or sad. Then by 3 it was just at night and nap when she was sleeping. Still is. But it's terrible.
I really want this next baby to use a pacifier. I'm glad I already have a good start with the GumDrop Pacifiers we received. From Sandbox Baby we received a Cheaper Keeper Value Bundle in orange/green which comes with 2 GumDrops, a Cuddle Square, a Cheaper Keeper which clips to clothes and stickers.
We also got 2 additional pacifiers. The Snoedel Doll and an Expandable Mesh Dishwasher Baskets.
Hole which is great for attaching to baby's clothes with the included clip.
The thing that sets the GumDrop apart from almost all other pacifiers is it's just one piece AND it has a cut out at the top so it doesn't block baby's nose. These are two crucial parts of a pacifier that are needed.
Don't confuse this with the GumDrop you buy in stores. That one is made by The First Years and it's a different one entirely. This is a Hawaii Medical Grade GumDrop and it's the same ones they use in hospitals and you can only buy it online. AND They're made right here in the U.S.
I love the feeling of it. It's latex free which is great, but it feels different in general. It also has those breathing holes on the side so baby doesn't stop breathing. It has air flow.
These are pretty awesome too. It's a 2 pack. It's perfect for Avery's sippy cup valves and I use it every wash load. It's perfect for that. It will also be great for bottles nipples and pacifiers once baby gets here.
Overall I'm in love with GumDrop pacifiers and can't wait to use them. I'm taking them to the hospital with me and hope they get used.
The GumDrop Pacifier comes in Orange, Blue, Pink, and Lavender and they come in Vanilla flavor or Natural.
Price: The GumDrop pacifiers are SUPER cheap. One single is $1.95!!! Buy 6 Get one Free so it's $11.70 for 7! OR a 10 pack is $18.95 with Free shipping and a free clip!!! If baby likes these I'm so buying a 10 pack. You can mix and match colors and flavors too.
Overall: ***** LOVE them and the idea behind the Snoedel doll, also love the basket.
