A few weeks ago, I wrote a post entitled Waging War Against Bisphenol A. It’s in reference to how TobyJoe and I are cutting down on the amount of plastic we use. It led us to purchase these pacifiers from Zoe B. Emory enjoys a good pacifier every now and again.
I didn’t expect Emory to love them but not because they aren’t lovable. Emory is VERY picky when it comes to pacifiers. He will only suck on one shape, just one. He doesn’t have any interest in oddly shaped pacifiers. (He’s a pacifist. Ha! I just made myself laugh out loud). We have purchased a great number of pacifiers for Emory and he always prefers the cheapest, most mundane version money can buy. But I had high hopes for the Natrusutten.
As soon as I received them in the mail, I tore open the package and gave him one. And he quickly spit it right back out. I tried several more times thinking that maybe it’s like putting clay on a wheel, you just gotta keep trying until it’s centered. To no avail, each and every time the pacifier flew further and further away from his head.
Needless to say, he didn’t like the Natursutten pacifiers. But I can’t say I’m surprised. We purchased a bunch of Haba toys for him recently and he spent more time playing with the catalog. (I played with the toys.) If he had his way, he’d happily spend hours chewing on the remote control (which used to be filthy but has since been cleaned with organic baby spit). He’s just like our cats: the more we spend on something, the less he seems to like it.
But they didn’t go to waste entirely.
I guess I should be thankful they didn’t become Emory’s favorite pacifier because this could become really expensive.
The whole ordeal has me thinking. I think today I’m going to buy Murray one of these:
I think baby and cat are in cahoots.
P.S. I may have added this to LOL Cat. (Thanks, Nico!)
