What Parents Should Know About Pacifiers

Pacifiers are a child's best friend comforting your child and providing him or her with a sense of security. There are, however, some things parents should know about pacifiers.

1.Constantly check the pacifier, especially the nipple end, to make sure that it has not become brittle. Brittle nipples can break, choking your child.

2. Reduce choking dangers by purchasing pacifiers made of one solid molded piece, instead of those composed of separate pieces fused together.

3. Never tie a pacifier around your child's neck. This can potentially strangle your child.

4. Always purchase pacifiers containing holes in the mouth guard section. These holes allow saliva to escape instead of getting caught between the pacifier and the baby's lips where it can cause skin rashes.
