If you do not want your baby to have a pacifier at the hospital, tell the nurses in advance – especially if you plan to breastfeed. However, giving your baby a pacifier for a day or two of the pacifier will not get him/her habituated to it. However, it does not make sense for you to introduce something that you are not going to apply at home.
There are many pros and cons to using a pacifier for babies. Pacifiers may be used to soothe a crying baby, or to encourage them to sleep. However, early use of pacifiers may interfere with breastfeeding. To learn more, consult with your doctor.
