Seriously?

So, as I was strolling through the pacifier department as my local grocery store one day while I was still preggers, I noticed the NUK starlight pacifiers.
They were lovely! Such clean lines, the colors, though limited, were fantastic! Never had I seen a paci so sleek and stylish. I bought a two pack and sent one off to a friend, saving the other for my own tiny boy. Luckily enough, that was the variety of bink he favoured and aside from the soothie they gave us in the hospital the only kind he's ever used.
But now I can't find them.
I got around to looking online today and all I came up with was a product description which reminded me how much I do indeed love that pacifier, and this
$18.95 for a pack of binkis? Are you kidding me?
I guess I am not the only one who loves them.
I suppose it's just as well. It's time to start getting Tiny off the bink anyway, but in the mean time I get all antsey when any of the 3 we have are MIA.
We were down to one for a few days and it almost drove me to insanity. And that was before I googled and was still hopefully checking every time I went to the store.
In reality, Tiny boy would probably be fine with any NUK I gave him. It is me who is in love with the starlight so I guess if the 3 got lost before we were through with paci's in general, I could buy any ugly old nuk and be ok, but I wouldn't be happy about it.

That's so sad! My baby has the Nuk binky, too, but not the starlight. Unfortunately, she can't keep a binky in her mouth to save her life, even if she really really wants and/or needs it. She pushes out with her tongue, which means we have to hold it in her mouth for her. Fun. Good luck on your binky hunt. I'll keep a look out for them, too. Maybe they have them here.

One of my favorite things about it is that my babe could lay on his tummy (Gasp!) and it fit so close to his face it wouldn't come out when he turned his head. That was my secret for the "can't keep a bink in his mouth" phase

We put Aidan on his tummy, too. (Shhh!) Emily doesn't like it. I don't think she's ever going to learn how to keep the bink in her mouth. I'm contemplating weaning her off it sooner than I planned on just because I'm tired of trying to hold her and keep her binky in place all at the same time. Worked when she was a one hander, but she has long since grown too large to be a one hander.
