Just putting a question out there to see if any experienced ABs have an inkling:
My mate got braces this year and recently he's been craving his 'sucky'. We're both very aware of the setbacks/nightmare using a pacifier with braces can be so I'm curious... Is there any sort of pacifier/soother substitute to help him out while he deals with a few years of metal-mouth?
The best thing we've come to at this point is letting him have one of those Fla-Vor-Ice style freezer pops. Gives him something to suck for a while and then the wrapper seems to serve as a decent soother after it's done.
