Soothie Pacifier Addiction in Your Preemie?

Share your experience in the comments below

Becky was addicted to the Soothie pacifiers in the NICU.  Seriously, she was hooked completely to the point that when we got her home I had to purchase them in bulk from a company that originally made them – Children’s Medical Ventures that is now owned by Phillips.  And when the teeth came in I had to move to purchase another bucketful of the next version to accommodate teeth. Thankfully she one day completely dropped the pacifiers altogether, I guess performing her own outpatient treatment on her own.  

Did you have this issue?  What pacifiers did you use?  And did your preemie use them in the NICU and if he/she made it home – how did they do?
