In brief: Yes

Sure a pacifer in the early stages of infancy can reduce the stress of being' a newborn.
After a few months, most babies use the pacifier more as a toy and no longer need it.Using a pacifier in infancy, can reduce some stress felt by the infantt and reduce some of the 'need' to nurse constantlywhich is sometimes an important emotional need but, sometimes it is a consequence of needing to incr milk.
