Tips for using pacifier

There are conflicting information regarding usage of pacifier for babies and toddlers. At the end the decision goes back to the parents and caregiver.

Here are tips and recommendations on using pacifier:

  • Limit the use of pacifier to minimally possible.
  • Usage should be restricted to the time when baby or toddler is falling asleep.
  • Keep the pacifier clean! Clean in boiling water or with dishwasher. It should be washed with soap and rinse well before using.
  • Use of pacifier can cause severe laceration if the shield is held inside the lips.
  • Look for a pacifier with ventilation holes in the shield, so they permit air passage. This is important if the pacifier accidentally become lodged in your child’s throat.
  • Do not use a cord around children neck to hold a pacifier, to prevent strangulation.
  • Use one that has a ring or extension to prevent choking.
  • If you want to wean of pacifier use, you may try to dip the pacifier in white vinegar, to make it distasteful, or pierce the nipple to reduce sucking satisfaction or just hide it and leave the child without any totally.
