In brief: No rules

There has been much arguing over the years about pacifiers.
In the end, though, there are no rules. When you say baby, i assume that you really mean a baby, under a year of age. My rule: if you baby likes sucking on a pacifier, its fine. Eventually, you need to get rid of the pacifier, but that is something to do in the second year of life.
