How to Introduce a Pacifier to your Baby

We asked pediatrician Jennifer Trachtenberg a national parenting expert, author and spokesperson for the American Academy of Pediatrics tackles the binkie basics. Her take on when exactly is the right time to introduce your baby to a pacifier, and how to do it, is below.

I have three children so I know firsthand how each can be different. I say this because there isn’t one way to do anything with children, it just often depends on the child. Some babies will like pacifiers, some won’t. However, I always tell my patients that most babies can’t self-soothe before they turn 3 months old, which means you need to find ways to make them comfortable. They are easily startled and their reflexes dominate, particularly when it comes to suckling—they have a need to suckle. I also always say: You can’t spoil a baby in the first three months, so don’t worry about giving them too much support.

This is where pacifiers come in. The baby has a reflexive need to suck, so if you know the baby isn’t hungry, pacifiers are an excellent way to soothe that need. While some believe you want to wait until your child has fully figured out feeding before introducing a pacifier, there hasn’t been a conclusive study done to show that babies are truly at risk if the pacifier is introduced earlier. If anything, there’s a chicken or an egg thing where if a mother is feeling frazzled by the child being upset, it can make feeding more difficult for her as well. The American Pediatric Association has also shown that pacifiers are linked to a reduction in SIDS. While we don’t know why that is, it is safe to say that pacifiers can help. So if you want to introduce a pacifier to your child, here are my tips…

1. Make sure when you do introduce it, your child isn’t hungry.

2. Notice their cues. Are they trying to suckle?

3. If so, offer the pacifier. If they don’t take it at first, you can and should offer it again. Sometimes things take a sec to warm up to.

4. If they still aren’t into the paci, you might just not have a pacifier baby, in which case you should find other ways to soothe them when they need it. I’d still suggest offering it up a few more times, as being overtired or cranky might be a factor in them not taking to it. Good luck!

Thanks Jennifer!

    After recognizing that an outflow of $300,000 worth of Bitcoin had occurred without my approval from my wallet, I understood that my wallet had been hijacked. I was very interested in discovering what had happened and getting my Bitcoin back at any length it will take. The 12-word seed phrase data that came from the wallet was stolen after they gained access to my email, but I still don’t know how it all transpired in such a hurry because all I did was click a link from a purchase order confirmation. To obtain some guidance on how I can get my stolen Bitcoin back, I promptly contacted a coworker who is knowledgeable about cryptocurrencies. With luck on my side, he was able to give me the contact to Cyber Genie which is: ( Cybergenie(@)Cyberservices. com )( +) (1 2)(52)(51)(20)(391). I couldn’t regain my crypto till I contacted Cyber Genie. After I explained everything to Cyber Genie, they were able to recover my crypto. At first, I didn’t believe this was even feasible or achievable because most of the articles I read while surfing the net for help on how to recover stolen Bitcoin mostly say that Bitcoin cannot be traced or recovered, but Cyber Genie Int’l saved a poor widow. Nothing in the realm of hacking, in my opinion, is tough for Cyber Genie..

  • Manuel Franco

    I just want to say Thank You to everyone who supported me through the years. My name is Manuel Franco, New Berlin, Wisconsin. My story of how I won the Powerball lottery of $768.4M is a bit of a tale. I have been playing Powerball tickets for 6 years now since I turned 18. I bought my first ticket on my 18 birthday. I was feeling very lucky that day because I had contacted Dr. Odunga Michael to help me with the winning Powerball numbers. I really had that great great feeling that I looked at the camera wanting to wink at it. I only did a tiny part of it and trusted him. He gave me the numbers after I played a couple other tickets along with it for $10. I checked my ticket after the winnings came online and saw the numbers were correct including the Power play. I screamed for about 10 minutes because it felt like a dream. I had won $768.4M. You can check my winning testimony with the lottery officials just with my name search. Thank you Dr Odunga. Well, his email is odungaspelltemple@gmail.com and you can also call or Whats-app him at +2348167159012 so you guys can contact him

    THE ONLY LEGITIMATE CRYPTO RECOVERY EXPERT….!!!

    MorrisGray830 At gmail Dot Com, is the man for the job , This man is dedicated to his work and you can trust him more than yourself. I contacted him a year and a half Ago and he didn’t succeed. when i got ripped of $491,000 worth of bitcoins by scammers, I tried several recovery programs with no success too. I kept on. And now after so much time Mr Morris Gray contacted me with a success, and the reward he took was small because obviously he is doing this because he wants to help idiots like me who fell for crypto scam, and love his job. Of course he could have taken all the coins and not tell me , I was not syncing this wallet for a year, but he didn’t. He is the MAN guys , He is! If you have been a victim of crypto scam before you can trust Morris Gray 10000000%. I thought there were no such good genuine guys anymore on earth, but Mr Morris Gray brought my trust to humanity again. GOD bless you sir…you can reach him via ( MORRIS GRAY 830 at Gmail dot com ) or Whatsapp +1 (607)698-0239….

    My name is KATE JORDAN.I want to give thanks to PRIEST MOGIES for bringing back my ex husband.No one could have ever made me believe that the letter I’m about to write would actually one day be written. I was the world’s biggest skeptic. I never believed in magic spells or anything like this, but I was told by a reliable source (a very close co-worker) that Trust is a very dedicated, gifted, and talented person,It was one of the best things I have ever done. My love life was in shambles; I had been through two divorces and was on the brink of a third. I just couldn’t face another divorce, and I wanted to try harder to make our relationship work, but my husband didn’t seem to care. and he broke up with me again . I was confused and did not know what to do again, rather they got in contact with PRIEST MOGIES. He did a love spell that made my husband come back to me. We are now very much happy with ourselves. PRIEST MOGIES makes him realize how much we love and need each other .This man is for REAL and for good . He can also help you to fix your broken relationship. I had my husband back! It was like a miracle! He suddenly wanted to go to marriage counseling, and we’re doing very, very well , in our love life . contact him via email mogiespsychichome@gmail.com or via whatsapp +2348161536183
