    We call it a dodi, I have no idea why, but it's always been called that in our family growing up so its hard to break the habit.

    DD (6mths) has just begun ti just hers.
    OMG! The difference to my day is unreal.
    Life savers!
    We used to call it dodi too! (Kids growing up in Ireland)
    Or dodo too.

    For some reason my Hungarian grandma always called it a "shnooly"...LOL. So that's what our whole family called them. But, if I didn't call it that, I would call it a pacifier or a paci but that's probably because I'm Canadian. Since coming here I call it a dummy.

    One family I worked for called them binkies. Dad was Welsh/English and mum South African via America, so I really don't know what the heritage of that word is! Anyone heard of that one or know where it's from?
