So I got my NUK 5 last night and I love it! Last night was also the first time I tried to sleep with a pacifier in my mouth and it was kind of strange.
My boyfriend had told me in the past that I chatter/clench my teeth in my sleep and I had never noticed it before. But last night the pacifier made me very aware of what I was doing as I was falling asleep. But not only was I gnawing and clamping down on the teat, I would start sucking on it involuntarily. It actually bothered me so much that I had to take it out.
I had read that using a pacifier at night was good for people who grind their teeth and I guess my problem is similar. But I would like to know if this has happened to anyone else. Do you think the pacifier may actually help me in the long run if I get used to it?
