We had always heard the horror stories about trying to take the pacifier away from kids and how hard it is and all that. So, we decided not to give our first born a pacifier. Here we are almost eight years later making orthodontist appointments for her to get her first of two sets of braces due to the fact that she was a finger sucker. No matter how hard it is to take away a paci, it is even harder to take away a child's fingers since they are attached to them wherever they go! Needless to say, we gave our second daughter a paci as well as our third. Not to say that they will always take it. Our third daughter loves to play with her paci, but is still a finger sucker.
Fold your skinny ribbon in half and slide the two ends into the open end of the wide ribbon. The ribbon should extend out about 3 inches with an inch of each side tucked in. Sew across the end, securing the skinny ribbon in place. Sew over this a few times since there will be a lot of tugging on it. These pacifier clips can be used with the ones that have handles but also the ones without. Simply slip the skinny ribbon through one of the holes, then put the clip end through the ribbon loop and pull.
Always supervise your baby when using this pacifier clip. If any of the seams get loose, do not use it!
