Been trying to find a pacifier that my baby will take when he's upset and nothing I do seems to help him calm down and stop crying. I've tried several different pacifiers, including this one, and he just spits them out right away. Even when I hold them in, the second I let go he spits them out. Although this is the one that when he was calmer I tried giving it to him and he still spit it out, but he realized it could be fun and decided to play the game where baby spits out the pacifier and mom puts it back in until mom gets tired of the game. He had a lot of fun with that.
