11 day old baby Leon. It's becoming obvious that the only thing that lulls baby to sleep is nursing. He falls asleep even before he is done feeding so here we are trying out this newborn pacifier to give another option for soothing. So far he is having a difficult time keeping it in his mouth and his facial expression tells me he finds the paci a bit strange.
I double checked with our pediatrician and she assured that just as long as Leon has been latching on well then there's no worry of nipple confusion. He has been such a good boy so far. Chris and I have been getting at least 5-6 hours of sleep collectively throughout the night. We're well aware that the situation could be worse so we are truly grateful for Leon's calm temperament.
