Pacifiers: Yes please! Pacifiers are wonderful in my opinion. They satisfy babies need to suck, they sooth baby, they help mom and dad. They don't hurt teeth. Best of all there are studies which show a decreased incidence of sudden infant death with their use. This doctor and grandpa endorses them!
