My thoughts on the Pacifier…
My wife and I didn’t use one until my daughter started teething. They will create a bad habit if you give them at the beginning of birth. When my daughter put her hands in her mouth I would tell her “no” and and took her hand out of her mouth.
When she started teething we gave her a pacifier and she used it as something to chew on and that was it. She is about 10 months now and she doesn’t even want it anymore.
If you never introduce it they will never know about it.
