Let’s talk pacifiers and sleep. As a mom or dad of a new baby, it becomes evident quickly that your baby will need you 24/7.
Although this is the natural flow and rhythm of being a parent, encouraging your child to self-soothe can be quite helpful. As first time parents, the pacifier was one way that we were able to find a bit of independence for our child as well as some sanity for ourselves...even if that meant getting up a few more times during the night to replace it.
This week we are teaming up with Brooke and Bridget (@thespeechsisters), two speech therapists and mamas, to bring you an informative perspective about pacifier use and speech development.
