Even before Anke was born, it was decided that she would use a Doemsie. It is very helpful when in church (I saw this work for a friend of mine) specifically when baby starts to fuss or goooh or cry, you know those things they do.
We had two NUK Doemsies in our hospital bag, ready as can be. We came home with both, and a baby that didnt care to use either. So my pinkie finger became the choice... Ok that is just weird right. Of we went to the pharmacy, to find a Doemsie in the shape of my pinkie finger.
Pigeon makes these really bright and big Doemsies... and you know it. They look like my pinkie finger. So there we have it, one week old and finally smitten over her Green or Orange Doemsie. How about making a white or pink Doemsie, Pigeon?
As a 10 week old, we are now playing a game - Anke falls asleep with her Doemsie, it falls out of her mouth, Anke wakes up and cries, Mommy to the rescue, put it back in Ankes mouth, who falls asleep, to start the game over again.
So there you have my love hate relationship with the Pigeon Doemsie that look like my pinkie finger.
