Dummy – the good or the harm, kids

Most recently, I became a mom. My life was filled with pleasant troubles and controversial issues. One of these – whether to teach the child to the dummy. Relatives representing the older generation, in one voice assert that the soother is a necessary attribute of each baby.

The main arguments are: the child will calm down faster and less often use the breast instead of the pacifier. And how cute a baby with a dummy looks in a little mouth!

The bride-pediatrician has a different opinion. According to her, a child accustomed to a pacifier may refuse to breast or capture it wrong. In addition, there may be bite problems in the future.

In infants, the sucking reflex is strongly pronounced. I noticed that even after my daughter ate, she continues to smack her lips and try to taste her own fingers. If at such a moment do not give her breasts again, weeping will surely follow.

With all the desire to do everything for the good of the child, I can not be tied to it all day. Nobody canceled household chores and care of the elder child. In this case, the dummy can be useful.

The eldest daughter first tried a pacifier back in two weeks of age. Many familiar mothers scared me that it would be difficult to wean the child away from this activity. As it turned out, nothing like that. It cost me, at 6 months, to buy a new dummy for my daughter, as she was forcefully spat out to the opposite end of the room.

Have you heard that sucking a pacifier hampers a child’s mental development? For me, this information, heard in the hospital, was a revelation. And it became very interesting, was it really that all children had delays and deviations 20-30 years ago? Indeed, at that time every second child sucked a pacifier!

Dentists claim that the dummy spoils the bite. Perhaps there is some truth in this. But if you choose a dummy of the correct anatomical shape, suitable for the child in size, and give it only in some cases, you should not be afraid of such a problem. Again, how many children grew up with pacifiers!

After weighing all the pros and cons, I came to the conclusion that my child needs a dummy in some cases:

– relatives are with the child
– baby crying on the street
– satisfaction of the sucking reflex in the first months of life

While I was writing this topic, my husband bought a baby a dummy, so to speak, on trial. My daughter approached the issue radically, twisting her face and spitting out the rubber substitute for her mother.
