Pacifiers Prevent SIDS
Shockingly, pacifiers have been tied to preventing Sudden Infant Death Syndrome or (SIDS). SIDS is when a child dies while sleeping with no clear indicator as to why. It isn’t known what causes Sudden Infant Death Syndrome but studies clearly indicate that providing a child with a pacifier when they go to sleep will reduce their chance of SIDS by more than half.
Other factors that help decrease SIDS from occurring include laying the child on their back when they sleep, making sure the baby sleeps alone, and sleeps without a blanket. It is important to not that boys are between 2 – 4 months are the most at risk of this happening. Formula fed babies are also more likely to have SIDS occur then breastfeed babies.
