Buying the right type of pacifier
The one problem that a new mother has, is to find the right type of pacifier that are safe to use, but that is also great for breastfeeding babies. You can’t just give any dummy for a baby, and think that it is going to calm down the baby. You need to buy the right one.
The first thing that you should consider is the size of the dummy. You don’t want to have a dummy that is too large for the baby and that can hurt the baby’s mouth. However, buying a dummy that is too small might mean that you are giving something to your baby that can become a choking hazard.
Mothers that already had a baby or two also recommend that you don’t buy a dummy or breastfeeding dummy that is transparent. You are going to search very long for that dummy when you have a crying baby. The more colorful the dummy, the easier you will be able to spot it.
The third thing that you should consider when looking to buy the best pacifier for breastfed babies, is if the baby is still breastfeeding or not. There are pacifiers that are designed for breastfeeding babies. This is important that you buy breastfeeding pacifiers for your newborn that are still breastfeeding.
