ideal age to give pacifier
Pacifier is an easy way to calm a cranky baby, but avoid constant use of pacifiers – try to distract the child or put them in the cradle for a rocking session. If given for more than six months, pacifiers can also increase the risk of ear problems. If at all you are using it, give it one after 3 to 4 weeks or when the breastfeeding is set in motion. Do not give the pacifier before a feeding session and choose a silicon pacifier for your child.

Selecting a pacifier for your baby

A pacifier is a rubber, plastic, or silicone nipple which is given to an infant to suck upon. It comes with a mouth shield to avoid the danger of swallowing it and choking up on it.

Weaning off pacifiers and milk bottles
