Is the pacifier required for the newborn class?
Not at all! Our Will I Ever Sleep Again? newborn class allows for the pacifier; however, it certainly is not required to see success. We do find the pacifier can be a helpful tool, but some babies simply won’t take it.
Be sure to see this blog about the pacifier if your baby struggles to take one.
If your baby doesn’t take one, that's okay. Please know that the pacifier is only one step of many for both CRIES and SIT BACK. You can choose to skip the pacifier step or offer your finger instead.
