Q:

Hi moms,
How do I recognize whether my baby needs a pacifier or not? And is it right time to give her one?



Rebecca Prakash

No pacifiers, at least not now. Right now only your breast and your skin can pacify.

Amruta Naik

Thank you so much Rebecca Prakash 🤗

Rebecca Prakash

Pacifiers can be used if the baby is really cranky or when you travel. Again not all the babies will take pacifiers.. Mine dint.

Amruta Naik

Even after her tummy is full she demands for more milk and then she vomits out the excess milk. So I thought could pacifier help in such situations.

Rebecca Prakash

It's common with Babies Amruta, they still don't know how much milk they need. But as the time goes everything will be set, Atarah was also like that.. Nearly till her 2nd month she use to pass curdled milk which is excess feed, later on it got reduced. The biggest disadvantage about Pacifier is babies will not cry if they are hungry.. So feeds will be missed and again it will lead to weight loss. Make sure you burp her after every feed now. Things will settle..

I agree with Rebecca..pacifiers may be a comfort but all kids are different and feeding routine settles in a while..also sometimes if not sterilized regularly they may cause an infection!!..my doc didnt recommend it..
