(11/2) Are pacifiers good for infants? - Quora

There is one aspect in which one might say yes to this question. Pacifiers have been shown in sme studies to slightly reduce the risk of SIDS for babies that are at risk. the caveats are that you don't want to start in the first month until breastfeeding is firmly established. And around six months of life ( concurrent with the timing that the risk of SIDS drastically reduces) you want the baby to learn how to self soothe at night and put himself to sleep. There is no greater gift that you can give your child than this!

Great community here on quora. Having fun answering questions!
