Hi ladies, did you all survive Monday okay? Getting going with a new work week is never fun, but for some reason I always love when Tuesday rolls around, because after all, we are the furthest away from Monday we are going to be all week, right? 😉
Join Jenn and I today for our Talk About It Tuesday linkup! Feel free to share anything under the sun. A fun Pinterest find, a DIY project you tackled, or simply what’s going on inside of your head today!

I always love the new people that linkups allow me to find, and hope this will serve that purpose for all of you, too!
Today, I am putting a question out to the mama’s out there. So those of you that aren’t mamas, don’t plan to be mama’s, or simply aren’t interested, feel free to scroll to the end of this post 🙂 Wubbanubs and Loveys. Are they worth it? I really, really, cannot decide! With Jackson, while he would occasionally take a pacifier up until around when he was six months old (when he started outright refusing them), he was never good with it. It was constantly falling out, getting lost, requiring cleaning..I will never forget when he was about a month old, we were taking some photos with my family on a bridge, and he managed to pop that baby out right into the creek below. And yes, my husband did jump in, get wet up to his ankles requiring a stop at Target for new shoes before running to our next appointment that evening, and retrieve the thing.
My research has told me these little gadgets help with the weight to keep it in baby’s mouth, are a little ‘comfort’ item for your child, and let’s be real, they are also adorable. I have my eye on this one, this one, or this one. What have been the experiences of all of you mamas out there? Did your child have one? Did you notice a difference having one versus not having one? Did it make it harder to take the pacifier away down the line? While I am glad we never had to go through that battle, I have also wished MANY times that Jackson had a comfort item, because he really doesn’t! No blanket he is attached to, no stuffed animals, no pacifier..as I have mentioned more than once, his way of soothing himself to sleep is by playing with hair (usually mine, even at 2am he can tell if it’s dad’s hair, which just isn’t good enough), and I have lost one too many strands to go through another child using my head as their cozy item!
I can’t wait to hear what you ladies think about these things; the good, the bad, and the interesting!!
