11. Decide if you're going to use pacifiers

Just as with practically everything else related to parenting, pacifiers are hotly debated. If you decide you're not going to use them, click next and move on. Otherwise, if you think there's a chance, buy at least one with a furry friend attached.

Babies have a much easier time keeping these in their mouths because the plush toy balances on their chest. Bonus, they're also easier to dig out of your crowded diaper bag because of their increased size. While I was initially on the fence about whether to use pacifiers, I quickly became a fan for their soothing effect during car rides, just be careful about introducing a pacifier before strong nursing habits have been established.
