Grandmothers shake their heads, parents don't know what to do, psychologists do not want to speak on this topic. Have children there is a need to suck - and some are more pronounced than others.
Sometimes the baby sucks a finger while still in the womb. mothers. After feeding and handing it up - the strongest time tested sedative. Even premature babies grow better if they can suck their pacifiers. This rubber gimmick has its place, but they cannot be abused.

Dummy or finger: what it is better?

The better the finger: it is easy to find in the middle of the night, it does not fall to the floor, it tastes better when the child wants to suck, he has that. Nipples get lost, get dirty, they are constantly falling to the floor. Opponents of thumb sucking can say that, weaning a baby off her nipples makes it easier to lose her than finger.Indeed, intense thumb sucking for three to four years can lead to improper tooth growth. Tiny parents finger flukes don't rush to look for them orthodontist doctor. All babies suck some time finger. Most safely pass this stage and if the sucking instinct was satisfied in infancy, the habit of thumb sucking is forgotten.

When pacifiers are impossible use by no means

In the first weeks of the chest feeding. When a baby learns to suck chest, in his mouth should be nothing but mother's nipple. The newborn must learn so suck to get more milk. Child sucks soother otherwise than mother nipple. Some newborns, but not all, start confused if at the same time they are given breast pacifier or bottle with a dummy. Dummy has narrow base and babies do not need wide open your mouth. As a result, they suck wrong, chew nipples, and this is very bad start of breastfeeding. Many children fall silent when you use any "gag" you can think of. Texture, taste, smell - do not matter. there is children moving from rubber to mother's nipple completely calm, not confusing anything and not protesting. Our advice: do not use pacifiers until the newborn is learn to suck well and while you have a lot of milk. If you have sore nipples or you are very tired, give baby your finger (or, better yet, let it will be daddy's finger or someone else's so you got a break). Skin to skin feeling remains, your index finger or little finger dads placed in baby’s mouth imitate better breast sucking

As feed substitutes. AT Ideally, the "comforters" are intended to calm children and not for convenience parents. Sticking gag and baby in the mouth leave it in a plastic child seat every time he cries, it means too much rely on the artificial comforter. To kid need to hold it in your arms. If a child leave alone with the nipple for too long he trusts parents less and parents don’t learn calm him down. Pacifiers are needed to satisfy the need for sucking and not for to delay or replace feeding. At the other end, the "comforter" should always be a living person. Chest (or finger) do not give appear the habit of just plugging the source screams purely mechanical. If a child burst into tears and you instinctively reached for empty, and not to the child - throw it away.

When use "comforters" justified

If used wisely and for babies with a strong need to suck-in adding, not instead of parental comfort, they are relevant. If you have such a child, and there are moments when you can’t calm him down because too tired - give the child dummy, but do not abuse it. When you are in public, the nipple is also appropriate if the baby is fed and suck your finger he does not want.

Parental concerns about need or not need to use dummy, always exceeds the possible harm to the child. Besides, dummies do not allow to appear charming smiles. In defense of these "comforters" you can say i change my negative attitude to the pacifiers when the child during total inspection peacefully sucks.

How to choose a dummy and use it?

  • Choose a solid dummy that does not will fall apart into two parts, and the child will not choke detached piece. In addition, it should easily wash.
  • The nipple circle must have air vents. It should not be very large so as not to close the nasal passages, when the baby sucks in the nipple during intense sucking.
  • The size of the nipple must fit age of the child. For the first months fit smaller nipples, short - special nipples for newborns.
  • Dummies are released with bubbles. the most different forms. Some are round like nipples for bottles. Others mimic elongated and flattened laterally during nipple sucking. Not all soothers are comfortable for babies, soothers special shapes may incorrectly turn around. sucking time or they can be incorrectly inserted. Some manufacturers advertise their products. as safe for dental development but it it is doubtful.
    Try dummies of different shapes, and Let the child choose.
  • Do not tie a ribbon to the nipple or do not attach a ribbon to the neck the nipple on the ribbon pin to the baby’s clothes fraught with suffocation. "But she always falls on floor ", you say. We answer: for the child and for pacifier need to watch.(Or attach a ring soothers directly to the baby’s clothes.)
    Perhaps children can not be leave unattended if they have something in their mouth there is. Safety and care are not separable from each other. friend.
  • Do not make homemade pacifiers from bottle nipples and stuff them with cotton: the child can suck it from the hole in the nipple.
  • Resist the temptation sweeten the pacifier by dipping it in honey or sugar syrup. If the child does not have teeth, he too small for honey and syrup. If he already has have teeth he is too big to give him sweets that spoil them. If the child is already used to sucking on a sweetened pacifier try to distract him, change the situation, go out into the fresh air with him, play, hug, to rock out before bed, make sure that he tired more than usual, etc.

Our advice: in the first weeks in the mouth baby should be only mother's nipple. If your baby really needs a nipple use it, but do not abuse it, and Try to get rid of it quickly.
