Revamp Your Baby's Paci

Friday, April 8, 2016

I'm pretty sure Oaklyn is going to graduate high school with a pacifier in her mouth...
The girl is completely obsessed with pacifiers!
It is always attached to her and if it isn't... she notices!
I caught her in her high chair the other day crying and searching for her pacifier on her shirt.
I was dying laughing when I realized what she was doing!
The second I clipped it on her shirt the tears stopped instantly...
Ha, such a little drama queen!

I often say, "The Paci fixes everything" because in Oaklyn's case, it really does!
It calms her down instantly and helps a ton when it comes to getting her to fall asleep.
I wanted Oaklyn to take a pacifier right from the start, so I offered it to her the day she was born.
I know not everyone would agree with that, but to each his own!
It has been a lifesaver for us!
I can only imagine how hard it will be to break her from it...

I am so glad we found the company Ryan and Rose because I absolutely adore their pacifier clips!
So far, they are the best quality we have tried and they by far, have the cutest designs!
I of course love the braided ones and always will, but also decided to try out the cute rosette clip.
I had Oaklyn wear it on Easter with her pink dress and I loved it SO much!
Seriously, it was beyond cute.
If your little one loves their pacifier as much as my Oaklyn girl, having a quality pacifier clip is the only way to go!
It keeps the pacifier off the ground and is easy for them to grab or spit out as they please.
I cannot wait to try out their other clips!

I went with MAM pacifiers.
I just liked the look of them the best.
I also liked that they are orthodontic approved!
Oaklyn took them almost immediately and chose them over the other brands I offered!
The only thing I don't really like about MAM pacifiers is the weird designs they put front and center.
Okay, weird might not be the best word... cheesy I guess is.
I've never been a fan of "cheesy" baby stuff.
I even chose to do Oaklyn's nursery based off a color scheme because themed nurseries just aren't my thing... they seem cheesy to me.
But that's just me, I'm sure there are beautiful themed nurseries out there!
I know it may seem silly to be bothered by the design on a pacifier but I just wished they would have made it all white.
So, I decided to to take off the design myself!
And guess what... it worked!

That being said, I'm going to share with you how to take the cheesy design off a MAM pacifier in 4 simple steps!

1) Take a clean cotton ball and dip it in straight acetone.

2) Rub the cotton ball across the design several times

3) Once all of the design has been removed, wash the pacifiers with dish soap and really hot water

4) Soak the pacifiers in very hot water for about 30 minutes to remove acetone completely.

The tackiness has been removed!

I hope you guys liked this little mommy hack!

All my love,
