As always, when I have a problem, it's a reason for a craft project. Since S uses a Soothie pacifier, it's hard to find a holder that will work with it. So I had to get a little creative. (I'm pretty sure I've seen some very similar to these out on the market, too.)
1/2" twill strap - about 12" (or whatever you prefer)
1/8" cording - 7" or 8"
clip for end
extra sewing machine needle
Use Fray Check (or something similar) on both ends of your twill. Allow to dry.
Tape your cording to a sewing machine needle. This will help you get the cording through the twill. Just gently wiggle it all through. It might take a little finessing, but it is doable.
Try not to go back through the same hole. (This will prevent the cord from eventually coming out of the twill and leaving a big hole.) Tie a knot in the cording.
Now you can attach just about anything to your child and save you some embarrassment.
