Now, I'm 50/50 with pacis, binkies, nippies, or whatever you may call them. I rarely used them for my 2 boys, and I just recently started using one for my darling daughter. I honestly think it depends on baby, and how you personally feel about pacifiers. None of my babies were attached to their binkies which made it easy to wean, and I honestly only used it for comfort when they wouldn't take their bottles. But, as soon as they were asleep I took it out of their mouths. Nonetheless, I think it's good to just have one on hand, just in case.
