My Baby Needs a Pacifier to Sleep
Don't be worried! The pacifier can actually be a helpful tool that can help your little one go back to sleep instead of being fed back to sleep at each waking.
If you're struggling with the pacifier at night wakings, check out Tip 7 and the FAQs in your Will I Ever Sleep Again? course for strategies to help calm your baby at night wakings. Follow the steps in order rather than jumping straight to the pacifier at every waking. Be sure to read our blog post on the four-month sleep regression for a bit more on why it's so important for a little one to be able to fall back to sleep more and more independently.
If your little one is waking every time the pacifier falls out, check out this blog all about the pacifier.
