My favorite clip is from Hanna Andersson (Oh how I love that store! If I were a rich woman I'd be a regular here!) because it's cute, wooden, doubles as a toy to investigate, and has a safety feature where the chain breaks in 2 if pressure is applied. At $12, it's more expensive than the little plastic clips you can buy at Target but I've found it worth the price. Unfortunately, I can not find Sam's Hanna clip that he used. I kept hoping I'd find it but I was so annoyed by today's battle that I just can't wait any longer! And wouldn't you know it, there must be an epidemic of pacifier spitters out there because this clip is back ordered until July 12!
While this problem really is quite trivial, I'm embarrassed to admit the level of aggravation it caused me today. So, if a simple gadget can help me win my pacifier war, and focus on real issues, I'm sold. And while I think the Hanna clip is worth the price, it's not worth the back order wait for me so I'm going to try one by another brand, Selecta. It's very similar to the Hanna one, though I don't know if it has the same great safety feature. It's more expensive than the Hanna one *gulp* (thankfully shipping is only ten cents at Amazon) but I'm justifying the cost by the fact that I shouldn't lose any more pacifiers.
I also noticed Amazon had some clips by another great brand, HABA Toys, like this one: Teddy Pacifier Chain. Both brands, by the way, are made in Germany.
I sure hope this ships fast for both Sydney's sake and mine! This product wasn't on my top ten list of baby-must-haves but after today it just might be!
