Children’s pacifier-dummy and the health of a newborn child: it is impossible to disaccustom it?
Soother-dummy has long been an integral part of caring for the child. But recently, before training the newborn to the nipple, many doctors and parents began to wonder: is it safe for the baby, as we used to think?
Such a habitual attribute, like a baby dummy, has existed in our lives for more than a hundred years.
For the first time the pacifier was patented in 1900, its appearance is due to Christian Minecke.
With her passed our childhood and the childhood of our parents. Undoubtedly, such a thing has a number of irreplaceable advantages, otherwise the nipple would not have so many supporters.
Among the advantages of this accessory is worth noting the following facts:
One of the first reflexes of a newborn baby is sucking. The main task of the pacifier is to satisfy it, otherwise the fingers and fists of the baby and any objects in the reach will go into play.
During sucking, the baby is completely concentrated, it helps him to distract himself, calm down and quickly fall asleep.
Is it harmful for a child to suck a dummy, influence on breastfeeding
Despite the dummy pacifier’s dignity, the opinion of doctors about whether to teach a child to her often is negative. This is primarily associated with breastfeeding. The fact is that the baby’s pacifier and breast suck quite differently. With frequent use of a pacifier, an incorrect grip of the nipple can be formed, in which the mother will experience painful sensations, and the child will receive insufficient amounts of milk and swallow the air, which will lead to colic. However, if the child is on artificial feeding, sucking a pacifier is necessary for him, otherwise he will pull into the mouth of the handle or anything that falls under them.
