When my son was a newborn, we use the Soothie pacifiers, but he started developing a preference for the pacifiers because he loves to hold on to the "button," on the front. Now that he is older, these are the only pacifiers we use. We stash them on the nightstand in his nursery, in the diaper bag, the car & everywhere in between. The glow in the dark pacifiers are a lifesaver in the middle of the night. Worth every penny!
