when does children need soothers?

Sonali Shivlani

A baby needs a soother when they are upset. However soother does not mean a pacifier it means some action that helps to calm them. It could be rocking, patting, talking, singing etc. It is best to avoid pacifiers as they result in non nutritive suckling and can interfere with breast feeding.
