Speaking of pacifiers, but with a baby family essential good things, whether daily home life, or travel, coax the baby quiet down how little pacifiers? However, there may be many disadvantages to pacifiers: for example, pacifiers are easy to make babies “addicted” and difficult to give up, serious can also lead to deformity of baby teeth, otitis media, and even lead to baby talk slowly or cause obstacles in expression. Can you still comfort pacifier with pleasure?

First, keep in mind the time to use pacifier pacifier.
Pacify the nipple, as the name suggests, is used to pacify the baby’s mood. We humans are at our strongest appetites from birth to age 2, especially for babies before the age of 1, who tend to explore strange things by sucking on their small mouths or touching their mouths. When a baby lives in the womb of a mother, she is used to comfort by sucking her fingers. Sucking is the instinctive demand of babies. As long as you can grasp something, the baby will be put into the mouth, which can make the baby feel comfortable, happy and safe. A scientific and reasonable response to the baby’s needs during this period will enable the baby to gain enough security and build basic trust in people. And pacifying the nipple is here.
At the same time, babies who are in “mouth desire” often have the habit of sucking their fingers. Too much finger sucking can easily affect the development of baby’s fevered teeth, and even lead to tooth deformation, and baby often sucking the finger is also easy to carry pathogens into the mouth. Pacifying the nipple can not only satisfy the needs of baby sucking, but also effectively prevent bacteria from entering.
Therefore, the approximate time to pacify the nipple is usually between 4-6 weeks after birth and 2 years old. 4-6 weeks of the baby will have breast milk, initially developed a stable breast feeding habits. At this point, mothers use pacifiers to help babies get used to nose breathing, which exercises sucking and swallowing. And when the baby has emotional agitation, pacifying the nipple is very useful. During the baby’s tooth eruption, pacifying the nipple can relieve the baby’s discomfort.
The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that babies stop using bottles at the age of one and stop using bottles altogether by 18 months to prevent dental caries. Similarly, parents should pay attention to reducing the frequency of pacifying pacifier, and gradually quit when they are about 2 years old.
Two. When do you need to use pacifier?
What is the need to use pacifier pacifier? The answer is simple: when the baby needs it. Many times, we use pacifier is not because the baby needs, but parents need. When the baby cries, many parents are in the soothing as soon as possible, let the baby quiet down the purpose of habitually using pacifiers. In the long run, babies are accustomed to using pacifiers instead of needing them, and become “addicted” until they need to get rid of them.
How to judge is not particularly difficult, when the baby is full of food and drink, not cold and not hot, small fart refreshing, mom’s hugs and kisses are enough, the baby is still crying, that means the baby really needs oral sucking comfort. Then baby pacifier should be used. But if parents can divert their baby’s attention in other ways, it means that the baby doesn’t really need a pacifier.
In obvious and extreme cases, soothing pacifiers for sucking and comforting premature babies or low-birth-weight babies may help babies gain weight. When the baby’s body weight reaches the normal child level, it should stop using pacifier. For healthy babies, if the mother finds that pacifier use affects the baby’s breast milk or formula, she should quit immediately.
