When my boys were babies I had no choice but to give them a pacifier, for my sanity and theirs. Both boys were BIG babies, my first was 8 lbs 12oz and my second was 9 lbs 6oz and they both LOVED to eat. I breast fed both boys and in the beginning they wanted to eat non stop.
I wanted to give them as much milk as possible but when my nipples started to bleed I had to sooth myself with frozen peas and them with what we call in our house the “Suckie”. When my first was born there wasn’t much being said about BPA-free but now with all the on going research we are more aware of the harmful effects that non BPA-free can do to our children. There are so many more options out there today.
Other safe BPA-free and phthalate-free options include buth are not limited to BornFree’s pacifiers
Gerber’s Nuk Classic and Nuk Original
Playtex’s Ortho-Pro and Binky pacifiers
