Pacifiers

Baby > Growth and Development > Pacifiers

Many new mothers see a pacifier as a viable alternative to baby's thumb, after all you can take the pacifier away. However, there are negative effects with regards to the use of pacifiers and the possible long term effects they have not only on your child's teeth but also on the growth of their mouth and even acute middle ear infection.

i gave both my boys a pacifier when they were babies lol the NUK brand i liked best, their teeth are perfect as so is the shape of their mouth aside of hereditary overbite they got from me, One needed braces and the other had a set of perfect teeth according to his dentist, both have zero cavities, i also gave floride and brushed their little teeth, and tossed the pacifier when the pacifier got old and yucky, and i took the binkie away when they turned 2 and only allowed it at bedtime and when it would fall out of their mouth while they slept, i would sneak it away and hide it, sooner or later they just forgot about it by the time they were 3 years old. this was 24.5 year ago.

This time with this new baby, I really have no idea what i`m going to decide LOL new studies show us new things.

I was an avid thumbsucker for years into my adulthood and my teeth paid for it as well as my self esteem, i had to wear braces as a grown up!

but suffered teasing as a teenager due to bucked teeth and my parent couldnt affort braces for me back then.

I am on the fence on this topic lol
