Pacifiers. For such a small item they can bring about some strong opinions. I’ll say it flat out, I am pro pacifier. It is interesting that there is an idea that pacifiers are anti-sleep or anti-Babywise or anti-good parenting. Or that pacifiers are lazy and poor parenting. I completely disagree. I think pacifiers can be a very helpful tool and align with Babywise ideas. And I think they are helpful regardless of what baby school of thought you belong to. (I just happen to follow Babywise, it isn’t the only way to do this parenting thing.) Now, they aren’t perfect. But are pacifiers ruining your baby? I say no. If you consider your long-term goals I find pacifiers to be an extremely helpful tool.
