Our Neighborhood Recommendation
One challenge that sometimes arises is when your child looses his pacifier in his sleep and gets upset. If you go into comfort your child try not to put the paci back in his mouth for him, rather guide his hand to the paci so that he put it back himself. You can leave a number of pacifiers so he can find one of them. Sometimes it can be helpful to use one of the little blanket or little animal pacifier holders to help your child find the pacifier. This may also help for weaning your child off the pacifier when it’s time.
Once children get older, the pacifier stays in their bed. They can go to their bed to use it, but it must stay there. Ultimately, we recommend just talking to your child about getting rid of the pacifier (between 2 or 3) and then saying bye bye to the paci.
Some studies show it reduces SIDS. Simple and easy to use. Sucking reflex is a natural way to calm.
It takes time for children to learn to find the pacifier if it falls out of their mouth. Some children will not take a pacifier. One parent or another family member may have a negative view of pacifiers. Children can become dependent on pacifiers.
