What are the advantage and disadvantages of baby pacifiers?
At what month can a pacifier be introduced
Paediatricians DO NOT RECOMMEND PACIFIERS especially in babies on exclusive breastfeeding. It does not prevent digits sucking... The pacifier itself can be a source of introducing germs to the mouth... It usually drops on the floor and many mums don't sterilize it often enough. It does not curb hunger but tends to fill the baby's tummy with air. That's what they suck in while using the pacifiers. Generally the bad in using pacifiers outweigh the good." Hope this helps.

My 4 months daughter has been sneezing often today. Is it normal?

There is no need to stop a baby from sneezing.....It is protective; however, you need to monitor the baby to watch out for respiratory infections which can happen when these protective influences are overwhelmed.
