Let Baby Have a Binky
If your baby likes the pacifier, let him have it!
"I think that about one-third of babies have massive physiologic drives to suck. They take to the pacifier and it is a great comfort to them," says Dr. Germain. Another reason to let your little one have a pacifier: The AAP states that pacifiers may help to reduce the risk of SIDS.
If you're sold on your baby using a pacifier but she just won't take one, try different brands. Eventually you may find one that she likes.
