How to use a pacifier
Almost every baby has a natural urge to suck and a pacifier can provide comfort and calm. It is common to give the child a pacifier if he or she is sad, upset or when it’s time to go to sleep. A good time to start providing a pacifier is when the baby is two to three weeks old, and breast feeding has been successfully introduced. Introude the pacifier to your baby by gently holding it to the mouth and letting go once you notice that it begins to suck on it. Sucking on a pacifier requires a different technique compared to breast feeding, and this can take the child some time to get used to. It easily falls out of the mouth, but this does not necessarily mean the baby does not want it. Keep trying until it seems the technique is starting to work. For some babies this works instantly, while others may take some training, and some may never fully want it. Be observant as a parent and try to find out what works best for you and your baby.
You should always sterilize a pacifier before giving it to your child. This is most commonly done by boiling the pacifier in regular water and letting it cool of before use. There is also specialized equipment you can buy that sterilizes the pacifiers using vapor.
When your child is three or four years old it is usually a good time to give up pacifiers. For many this can be a hard task and there are many methods and plenty of advice out there on how to successfully stop using pacifiers. When the time comes it’s important that you as a parent listen carefully to your child before deciding how to do it. Letting the child be involved in the decision making greatly improves the chance of success.
