My baby always feels uncomfortable without a sucker but immediately you put the sucker in his mouth he will be calm and before you know it he will fall asleep because he likes it. I give him a sucker always and i heard is not good, please I want to ask is sucker not good for infants and what's the side effect, or should I continue to give him the sucker? is it safe for him?
We do not recommend the use of SUCKERS, PACIFIERS, BOTTLES even ? and such for babies on exclusive breastfeeding. It can lead to what we call Nipple confusion and make some babies reject Breastmilk. It also tends to fill babies' tummies with unnecessary gas....as they suck in air
