This morning we took calls on what people call a baby's pacifier. Growing up Michael called it a 'duey', I called it a 'nookie' and more than half of our callers said they called it a 'nook' or a 'binky'.
To me, it's just hearing grown adults say the word 'nookie'. What's also funny, is that no one called in and said they called it by it's name... a 'pacifier'. I guess that's because 'binky' and 'nookie' are a lot more fun to say :) Feel free to leave a comment on what you and your family grew up calling a pacifier.
