The Benefits of Using Babies Dummies

Many new moms wonder whether or not they should give their babies dummies (also known as soothers or pacifiers). These are very commonly used, and there are a lot of benefits to their use, so there is no need to be worried about letting your baby use one if he or she finds it to be soothing.

One of the major benefits of babies dummies is the fact that they have been found to help prevent cot death, or sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS), which is a big worry for many new moms and dads. Put your baby to sleep with a dummy and they are less likely to die from SIDS.

Of course most moms and dads first give their babies dummies because of the fact that the sucking motion tends to calm them down, giving mom and dad a break from crying. They are so soothing that they tend to help a baby get to sleep faster, and stay asleep during the night if they have one in their mouth. They simply start to suck automatically as they wake and the motion puts them back to sleep before they even get their eyes open in many cases.

Sucking on babies dummies can also help to keep your child from starting to suck on his or her thumb, which has been found to lead to dental problems if they carry on with it for too long. It is easier to get a child to stop using a dummy as they get older than to stop sucking their thumb since their thumb is always with them.

It has even been found that premature babies that use a dummy are able to leave the hospital sooner than those who do not. They also are able to start feeding from a bottle sooner. As with other babies, the dummy can help to keep them calm between feedings as well.

As you can see, there are a number of benefits for allowing your baby to use a dummy. Breastfeeding moms may want to make sure that their baby is well versed in nursing before they start however, since some babies might get a bit confused due to the slightly different nipple types. However, these days they have some dummies that are more like the real thing to limit this problem.
