Pacifiers & Binkies
Pacifiers provide comfort and can help soothe a fussy baby. These common baby items make great gifts for new or expecting parents, and they are an essential baby product for many families.
Why Do Babies Like Pacifiers?
Babies have a natural tendency to suck because this is their mode of feeding, and pacifiers can satisfy this urge when food isn't readily available. Because sucking on a pacifier reminds babies of feeding, it can be soothing for the infant. Some parents pack a few pacifiers along with other essential baby products in a carry-on bag for a flight because sucking on a pacifier might help infants pressurize their ears during takeoff and landing. Include a pacifier in a gift basket of baby toys and clothing to help new parents stock up.
How To Clean Pacifiers
How to Sterilize Pacifiers
You can sterilize a pacifier at home by placing it in a pot of boiling water for 5 minutes or using a sterilizing solution. Pacifiers don't need to be sterilized after every use. In most cases, a simple cleaning is sufficient. You should sterilize the pacifier before the first use and can set up a regular sterilization schedule after that.
Keep pacifiers and other baby essentials off the ground using a pacifier clip that attaches to your infant's clothing and prevents the pacifier from falling. You can also keep extra pacifiers in your diaper bag along with pañales y toallitas para bebé so you always have an extra on hand.
Can Pacifiers Be Bad?
There are advantages and disadvantages to pacifier use, and your doctor can help you decide whether a baby pacifier is right for your infant. Pacifiers come in a range of sizes appropriate for different ages, so your growing baby may need a larger size as toddlerhood approaches.

Some pacifiers, including the MAM orthodontic pacifier, are designed to promote tooth development. Pacifiers with breathable open designs help prevent irritation to sensitive infant skin.
