The Pacifier Prescription

Home » Baby » The Pacifier Prescription

Giving your baby a pacifier whenever she goes to sleep will significantly reduce the risk of SIDS, Sudden Infant Death Syndrome,  according to new recommendations from the American Academy of Pediatrics. This benefit outweighs any possible risks of using a binky, such as dental problems or ear infections. If the pacifier falls out of the baby’s mouth after she doze’s off, there’s no need to reinsert it. If you are breastfeeding, wait two or three weeks after birth before introducing a pacifier.
