Pacifier safety tips. Pacifiers deteriorate over time. Inspect them periodically and replace them if the rubber is discolored or torn. Never tie a pacifier to your child’s crib or around your child’s neck or hand. This could cause serious injury or even death. Prolonged pacifier use might lead to dental and speech problems.
Single piece is best. If you decide to use a pacifier get the single piece silicone versions. This way they can't break in half and create a choking hazard. If the material tears replace it. Keep them clean.
