Shhhh...be very quiet...Hila is sucking a pacifier and one loud noise or wrong move could disturb this exciting new experience...
We've bought all pacifier options available in Israel and nothing has worked. And then, a conversation with Tiffany:
Tiff: Why don't you get those pacifiers that they give newborns in the hospital?
Sar: You mean the bottle nipples stuffed with cotton? No, with the bottle rims they're too heavy and fall out of her mouth.
Tiff: Ummm...do you live in a third world country? I'll look into it and send you some that will work for Hila.
And she did! A package arrived filled with goodies from Tiff and Penina and at the very bottom was the Soothie Infant Pacifier that has already changed our lives!
This pacifier is made of latex free silicone and is used in over 2000 hospitals (in America that is, not Israel). Some people think it's ugly, but I happen to think they are much cuter than those big plastic ones that cover a baby's whole face. I think she looks like a Cabbage Patch Kid.
And look at this Soothie Pacifer Attacher you can get to go with it!
Right now she's content in her swing sucking away and Mommy and Daddy Pritzker are very happy. :)
