Funny pacifiers are popular for photo ops and family gatherings, but they can also bring a little levity to frustrating times when your baby has been fussy.
You can buy an ordinary pacifier or you can purchase a novelty pacifier to add just a touch of fun to the everyday parenting routine. After all, not every day goes off without a hitch, without the fussy times or events where it's difficult to give your baby the undivided attention he or she is looking for. Pacifiers are used for just these sorts of events, and if you're going to use a pacifier, why not have fun with it? You can find so many fun ideas on the market today that you're sure to come up with a few different pacifiers to suit your sense of humor.
For example, have you seen the mood pacifier? This is a new pacifier fashioned after the mood rings of the 1980s. A stone at the center of the mood pacifier changes color as the baby sucks. The different colors are said to represent the baby's mood. Green is good. Go green!

To look into the face of your baby and see a set of Billy Bob chompers or a mute button might just give you a lift mentally.
