“Pacifiers are one of the most undervalued baby accessories due to the fact that parents don’t realize their importance. As a result, they are inclined to use the product excessively, or even not use it at all, which can cause bad results. If you don’t want your baby to suffer these results, then you have to understand the various benefits of the use of pacifiers. Here are several of them.
The most unique thing that pacifiers can give to parents that no other baby accessory can is time. As pacifiers have the capability to calm babies down, it prevents tantrums which will provide the parents the chance to focus on other stuff. Even though it might look like it is a good thing, it also has its disadvantages.
One of the most risky disadvantages is that it makes parents reliant on using pacifiers. As it is normal for babies to throw tantrums frequently, parents will not be aware that they are already using pacifiers unreasonably. This is actually what makes other parents afraid to use pacifiers.
Due to this, you have to do a simple thing. This is none other than keeping a record of how often you use pacifiers. No other way is more effective than remembering, or even writing down the number of hours that your baby is using his or her pacifier. Once you already take note of the time he or she uses it, you then need to compare it to the appropriate number of hours per day that babies are recommended to use such baby accessories.
If you find out that you have indeed been using it excessively, then you have to bring your baby to your pediatrician to check if this mishap has caused your baby to have any mouth deformities. You can also opt for a general checkup for your baby just to be sure that nothing else is wrong.”
