CJ has found his fingers, or rather his fist, and has developed the innate desire to suck on them more frequently. Initially, we were against giving him a pacifier. I never gave mine up until I was two years old when my mom put hot sauce on it…lol! But we’ve learned that such a soothing device was invented for a needed reason. In any case, CJ doesn’t like sucking on his pacifier, but we’ve heard from other parents that sometimes it takes a few weeks or months. So in the interim, CJ has resorted to his fist…great.
