A Binki Quest

I've spent the biggest part of the afternoon looking for this pacifier.  Emily, following suit behind her older siblings will only take the round bulbed latex pacis.  We only have one and it's starting to show wear to the point where I'm a bit worried to give it to her.  As you can tell, this one has the larger nipple on it.  I have a few of the "newborn" ones with the smaller nipple, but she will not take it.  They are not available in any local sores.  I have been searching online with no success as to where I might find one.  If anyone has any suggestions or a link to where I can buy a few of these, please leave me a comment or shoot me an e-mail.  I am at my witts end.  I hate to break her from a paci at 4 months, but if I can't find another that she will take, this is what it might come to!  They are made by Gerber.

****Addition to post****
Apparently these type of Pacis have been discontinued. *sigh* I do remember that when Tyler was a baby that I got some at Walgreens when they no longer had them anywhere else. I will have to give them a look on Monday. I did find a different brand made by Goldi. It looks promising so I went ahead and ordered one.  When I receive the paci that I will post a bit more about it. Keep your fingers crossed that Emily likes it.

I wish I could help, but (alas) I have no clue. I do wish you well and I'm certain one of the moms out there will come through for you.
Hugs and blessings,

How about Amazon? They have quite an assortment. I couldn't tell if any were the ones your daughter uses. But it might be worth a peek. Good luck!

Oh, that's too sad. Good luck. When I'm out and about tomorrow, I'll see if I spot any. (Two drug stores and a grocery store to go to.) Maybe California has a better supply!

Hey you hot momma!LOL!
Don't stress about that! ;)
Are you acquainted with the brand "Chicco"?Here in Europe it's one of the top brands for baby stuff (from strollers to babies wear).I think they still have those sort of pacifiers.
If so I'll be sending you a couple of those to the Little Princess.
*mwah*!

Awww...I remember when babysitting my niece, Bah and her favorite one was lost... OY it was a miserable night. The child wailed for over two hours...

I'd hunt around on eBay or Half.com. You can find anything through those sites.

Have you looked at the soothies pacis? I think they have the same type of rounded tip that these appear to have. They look quite similar and they are easy to get....most of the hospitals around here use them.

My kids only liked the NUK style from Gerber, and no others would do, so I can empathize with you. I hope things work out.

Try ebay!! My friend bought two packs on there last night. They are OF COURSE new in the package. I think she spent a total of 18.00 dollars for both

Thanks, Anonymous and The Hawg. Unfortunately I have tried those places and they only have the small newborn size, that she will not take. I have some of those.

Hey girl......both Mo and Mairead would only take that kind as well. After a while I could only find them at the PX on base. You might want to have Amanda look for you.

My son is 13 months and will only take that kind also. I use to be able to find them at Kroggers but alas not anywhere now. We are down to our last two and they dont look in great shape. I did find a set on ebay but they want 20.00 for 2. I will run to walgreens and see there. Then I will look on post sometime this week. Good luck finding them. If I find a lot of them I will probly buy all they have and I send you some, that is if I do find them. If you find them would you be so kind in letting me know where you found them at.
Thanks,
Sarah

Thanks, Sarah! I will let you know if I find them and hopefully you can do the same. :D

I did go to walgreens yesterday. I picked up a Sassy Mam Classic pacifier. He does like it. Usually he will just take them out of his mouth and look at me like I'm dumb. But this one he actually kept in his mouth. I only bought one. They do have a 3 pack. I am itching to find the Goldi one. I have found it on Amazon but when I used my gift card it said it was more than $10, but would not tell me how much.

Crazy Working Mom said...

Sarah, the Goldi paci cost me $6.95 on Amazon. But the standard shipping was $6 so it was over $10 indeed. I will let you know when I receive it and how it works with Emily.
