Easy Pacifier Tips for Every Parent

When Pacifiers May not be a Good Idea

When Pacifiers May not be a Good Idea

Pacifiers aren’t necessarily a good idea for every child. In fact, there are some cases in which pacifiers should be avoided altogether for a baby’s health and safety.

Do not give a pacifier to your baby in these circumstances:

  • The baby is struggling to gain weight
  • The baby is prone to frequent ear infections
  • Babies who are a high risk for latex allergies
  • Child is older and developing a speech impediment

In summary, babies whose physical well being is at risk – whether it’s their current health or future development – due to the use of a pacifier should not be given one.
