Soothing with a Pacifier

When you’re a mama, you’ll do just about anything to ensure your little one feels comfortable and safe. At the top of that list for many (especially new mothers!) is the pacifier, a magical rubbery nipple that satisfies a baby’s sucking reflex and helps soothe them when they feel distress. While not every baby will take to a pacifier, we’ve rounded up some pros and cons to using one during the newborn stage and beyond.

  • Can lead to dental issues such as an overbite 
  • Have been linked to increased risk of ear infections
