The situations would be...
1) bedtime, when putting my older child (3.5 years) down. Right now, I have him watching videos by himself while I put baby (6 weeks) down (he goes absolutely ballistic if he sees me nursing her at bedtime and gets violent towards both of us and since my husband works nights, I am totally alone with them.) But I don't really like him watching videos for very long so I'm thinking that if baby has nursed a lot to the point that she is clearly comfort sucking but not falling asleep, that I could give her a pacifier to suck on while I nurse DS to sleep and then go back to nursing her to sleep.
2) The other instance would be when we are in the car. We live in the mountains and have to drive everywhere, which I hate, but that's the reality. When she cries, I pull over and nurse her and DS, again, goes nuts if he can't get out of the car, which is not always possible. So I'm thinking again, if she nurses to the point of comfort sucking, that again, I could give her a pacifier to keep her happy for the rest of the ride.
A third instance might be at home when I have to cook dinner, for example. As mentioned before, husband works nights (he is only home for 1-2 hours in the afternoon every day) so I have to cook/clean/do bedtime etc...by myself. But if baby wants to comfort suck and I have to get dinner on the table for DS and myself, it is really hard to manage (and I've never been able to work out nursing while she is in a sling or carrier while doing other things like cooking). So again, I'm imagining giving her the pacifier for a little bit while I make dinner.
Would like to know what other AP parents think about this. Thanks!
