The Pacifier Belongs to Mom

Mothers should be taught that the pacifier belongs to the parent and not to the baby.

It is a tool she can use sparingly at special times when it is convenient for her.

It should not become the baby's addiction!

I never used one with any of my six children, but I have a friend who said she tied the pacifier to the bedpost when her baby was a bit older. In this way, her babies could only enjoy a pacifier at nap times or bedtime and were not able to suck it all day long.
