I love sucking on pacis, but I threw mine out this morning as I am sick AGAIN with a sore throat sniffling and sneezing and I feel like crap! I was going to replace my paci (Baby Bop with a NUK 4 latex nipple/teat) with one made just like it, But I was also going to buy a pacifier actually of the NUK brand, the kind with the small guard, in white. But I was going to request that the handle be red. Like the Baby Bop paci, the NUK-brand paci would have a NUK 4 latex teat. That paci, I would only use when sick, hence the colour scheme. Whenever my cold or whatever I may have goes away I will toss the "health" paci and order a new one. And to keep it for its special purpose I will keep it in my personal first aid kit that I will put in my diaper bag when I have everything. Do any of you have an "only when I'm sick" paci? I'd like to hear your thoughts and opinions!
