Q:

Hi can i give pacifier to my 9 month baby..



Priya

Its best to avoid. It just creates unecessary habit. Any reason for the pacifier? You can give a teether instead for baby to chew and play with

Hi Nidhi Sharma I would suggest u to avoid... Sacking a thumb while sleeping is anyday better than a pacifier... I have seen many moms struggling to get rid of pacifier... It would worsen the situation infact... U can keep trying to pull out the thumb as far as possible... Keep removing the thumb and keep repeating that it's a big NO....u wud  end a lot of patience with this girl... All d best

Nidhi Sharma hi dear..  definitely u shud say no..  I ve read one article somewhere during my pregnancy..  about thumbsucking.. children who tends to such habits due to some lack of paternal care..  try to spend more time with her..  play nd have lots of fun her...  u can try story time as well...  nd play peek a boo.. hide nd seek...  keep engaging all the time which will  help u..  I guess..  it's completely my style of parenting..  try these if u wish...

Nidhi Sharma don't worry if ur baby is sucking thumb or fingers, it's not bad at all. it just the part of their enjoyment. let him do that.
