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 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 breast feeding is set in motion. Do not give the pacifier before a
feeding session and choose a silicon pacifier for your child.
