What do you call a pacifier?

I've always called them passies but this little girl I have been keeping calls them NukNuks so I've had to start using that term now.

I'd love to be the ideal mother but I'm too busy raising my kids.

Well when my 8 yr old was a baby it was a "b" because that is what my nephew was calling his and he'd been around for a year already. But with Emmy and now ashley it is a binkie.

Oh and I used to baby sit for this little girl who clled it a popper cause she had the bulb one and it made a pop noise when it was pulled from her mouth. Her parents started that.
