Tips to Introduce a Pacifier

When I was pregnant, I had the idea in my head that we wouldn't use pacifiers. I didn't like them because I read that they can effect breastfeeding in a negative way and that an older child can become too dependent on them. Well, a many of sleepless nights later, we decided to introduce a pacifier to our baby.

4 Months Ago, Wordless Wednesday Linky

It's crazy how much my sweet baby girl has changed in the past 4 months.

She has become completely Pacifier Free since April

Her First Hair Cut was 8/13/13

She has been Sleeping in her Big Girl Bed since 8/24/13 with no issues

And she is completely Potty Trained during the day, I can't remember the last time she had an accident!

Looking For A Unique Baby Shower Gift? #Mustachifier

I was provided a Mustachifier to provide this review. All opinions are my own.

Mustaches are the new thing. There’s nothing better, cuter, and funnier than the new Mustachifier for that new man in your life! The Mustachifier is just that - a mustache pacifier, which comes in 3 different styles, The Cowboy, The Gentleman, and The Ladies Man. You can even get “The Full Monty” which includes all 3!


Aren’t they just the cutest baby item you have ever seen. I received The Gentleman to review, and yes I have a girl, but who says girls can’t use a Mustachifier?? I was impressed with the quality of this, the mustache is nice and secure and won’t come off, so you don’t have to worry about baby choking on it. My daughter is also passed the pacifier stage, but she loved "pretending" she was still a baby. :)

Mustachifier Review

This is definitely a cool and unique baby gift that I will be giving to the next friend I know to have a little boy. Could you just image?! What about a mustache baby shower theme? That would be absolutely adorable! My friend Kerry over at OhSoAmelia blogged about some other ideas you could use. You can purchase these online at Mustachifier, each pacifier is $9.99 or you can buy all 3 for $29.95 with free shipping.

Check out the wonderful features of this great product:

• 100% BPA free pacifier
• Ideal for 0-6 months
• Soft mustache made from teether material
• Silicone Nipple
• Includes snap-on cap for hygiene
• Natural orthodontic shape

Make sure you check out the Summer Stache Sweepstakes over on Facebook for a chance to win your own!

Nanny to Mommy


I had very strong opinions before I became a momma about being a parent. Everyone kept telling me that my views would change once I became a mom. I would simply roll my eyes.

Co-Sleeping: I was totally against it. I thought it made very bad habits. But the first night she came home and we were all exhausted, I put her in the bed with me and voila. A sleeping baby. She has now adjusted to sleeping in the bassinet beside our bed but I enjoyed the little time she slept in our bed. I thought it was sweet and bonding.

Pacifiers: I hated them. I thought the idea of them was gross and that all they did was ruin a child's teeth. But when your little one wants to use you as a human pacifier and you can't get anything done, you quickly learn that they are a god send.

Gripe Water: I thought it was ridiculous and that it didn't work. Now I'm not saying it works for every child but my gassy, hiccupie baby needs them. They make her tummy feel better and let me sleep.

Another thing....I use to want twins....and now I don't even know how people do it.

I use to think it was easy until I had one of my own. Having them 24 hours a day or just over night is a way different experience.

With all that said I love my one month old. And I feel like it's all going by so fast already. I'm trying to enjoy every single minute I can with her because I don't want to miss a thing and I want to try and remember everything.
