Young mom is faced by the mass of the questions connected with care for the baby. Among them – whether it is necessary to use a pacifier or it is harmful to the child? Certainly, it is convenient to use dummies during falling asleep or campaigns in public places, but whether they will do harm to the child?
If the child is on breastfeeding, first of all, at it the correct capture of a nipple of a breast has to be created. Technology of capture of a pacifier absolutely another. Therefore not to create excess problems for breastfeeding, it is better to postpone use of a pacifier at least before the kid is 3-4 months old.
When the child cries, he is usually hungry, something disturbs him or he just wants to stay with mom. First of all, it is necessary to establish the reason of tears, to eliminate it and only then if necessary to use a pacifier. The dummy should not replace mom.
Some children have an increased need for sucking. But it does not mean that the pacifier is necessary for them. They can manage the fingers. The baby has them always clean (unlike a dummy which continually appears on a floor).
Experts did not come to a consensus whether use of a pacifier influences formation of a bite at the child. Therefore at the moment there are no bases to exclude negative impact of a dummy on teeth of the kid.
It is frequent to disaccustom the child to a pacifier happens not easy. Think whether there is a comfort which gives use of a dummy, those problems which it is necessary to face at excommunication from it.
