Great pacifiers, but didn't get any of the ones pictured
We used to use Soothies because that's what our NICU used, but when a friend saw our baby knock her pacifier out of her own mouth by hitting the little "tab" on those, she recommended these because they sort of lay flat on the baby's face, making them harder to knock out. I'm glad we switched because our 5 month old really does hold these in better (we've been using these since she was maybe 3.5 months). The one negative thing I will say is that the cute pictures on these wear off really quickly (see the pics... the one in the baby's mouth used to say "good night"...now the Os are gone!). Also, the green ones I got are not shown in the listing's pictures, so be aware that when they say "colors may vary," you might not even be getting any of the ones they show.

Only one my breastfed baby will touch!
My daughter took the Avent Soothie extremely sparingly until she was about 3 months old. We were okay with her not wanting a pacifier and didn't even try to give her one until about 6 weeks old since she was breastfed. Around 3 months, she started fighting sleep more often and I knew that a pacifier would help her since she likes to nurse to sleep. We tried at least 3 other pacifiers that she would spit out immediately and she stopped being even slightly interested in the Avent ones.
This brand advertises that more babies take it the first time than other brands and it was the type of bottle we use while I'm at work so I bought some to give them a try. She took it the first time and genuinely likes them! I would recommend these to ANYONE! :)

My 4 month old did not like these. I think they are too long.
UPDATE: I changed my review to 5 stars! At first my son did not like it, but to be fair he didn't really take pacifiers to begin with. After about a week or so of trying with this pacifier, he LOVES it! Initially i was against the use of pacifiers (my other two children did not use pacifiers), but my son uses me as a pacifier to sleep when nursing, so for my sanity I decided to try to give him a pacifier. He loves the Tommee Tippee and keeps it in his mouth even when I'm carrying him (with other pacifiers, it would fall out as soon as I lifted him). He has also fallen asleep by himself in his crib (HUGE step, before he needed to nurse to fall asleep or be rocked) with the pacifier! I would give it a try if other pacifiers have not worked for you. The shape of the pacifier seems to be easier for him to latch on to.

I really like them but I'm sad that you can't choose a color. They came a pinky purple . wich I don't mind the purple but the pink isn't right, I'm having a boy so I just wanted something different. I'm exclusively gonna have him use them at home and buy different ones in person. Good for the price as well . really cute. Its just a little bit of a downer . please change that option guys.

not what was pictured
so I like these pacifiers as they are the only brand my daughter likes but the only issue I have is that I wanted the ones shown in the picture but the ones I received are black & I didn't want the black ones I wanted the ones shown in the picture.

These are the same shape and she actually took to them very easily, however
My daughter, 5 months old favors the green soothies and won’t take another shape. So I was looking for a glow in the dark set to use at night. These are the same shape and she actually took to them very easily, however, the glow is not very bright to start the night and by midnight I can’t even find them in her crib. The Dr Browns glow all night so I guess I’m going to stick with those.

the winner for a pick pacy picker
The only pacy little one will take (after trying many, many of them). Even then, he will only take it when very sleepy. I think it is likely more his preferences than the pacifiers, but this one did seem to win over a picky boy. We also use the Tommee Tippee bottles, so there may be some advantage to a similar nipple design (although they don't really look similar).
The bears are super cute, but I did dock a star because I think the whole "nightime" thing is a bit of a farce... they give off a very dim glow in the dark that lasts for like 30 seconds. It will not help you find it in the middle of the night, so do not pay any premium whatsoever for that feature.

The best pacie out there
My 5 month old son loves these pacifiers! When he was first born we tried every pacie that is on the market and he took the to the Tommee tippee immediately. We just had to move to this larger size as the 0-6 month old size was getting too small for him. I dread the day when we have to wean him! Also just a side note, the picture on the pacie wears off rather quickly so don't get too attached to it or buy it for the picture. Still an amazing pacifier though! We really don't care about the pictures coming off.

Boo. Received pink ones for my boy.
I know it says designs may vary but all of the images show blue boyish toned designs. We were a little upset to see we received pink ones for our boy. Not hat there’s anything wrong with pink, just not what we expected. Wish we could select colors or at least please advertise that you may get pink ones and share the pink images. Other than that the paci is good

Best pacifiers you'll ever get
Only binkies my daughter would use. I gave a pack to my sister in law when she had her baby and she said they were the only ones her daughter would use also! A lot of binky companies try to make theirs very orthodontic, weirdly shaped, claiming it's better when they're all slightly altered but mostly identical versions of each other, but for some reason these (I've never seen another binky like them) are the only ones my baby won't turn her nose up at.
