1. Confused Nipples
When a baby is fed breastfeeding through a pacifier too often, he will become confused about the nipple and often cry when he has to drink milk directly from the mother’s breast. Rubber nipples that are made to resemble nipples work differently from breasts. Without needing to be vacuumed, the pacifier can drain the milk into the baby’s mouth when the bottle is tilted. Meanwhile, the new nipple will release milk when it is stimulated or sucked by the baby. This then makes the baby feel confused about the working mechanism of the mother’s pacifier and nipple. If the baby drinks breastmilk more frequently using a pacifier, he will be familiar with the mechanism of action of the pacifier and will feel confused when he has to drink milk from the mother’s nipple.
2. Risk of Infection
When the baby is full but the pacifier is still in his mouth or when the baby is asleep when you are drinking breastmilk from the pacifier, the milk in the teat has a high chance of spilling. Spilled milk from these bottles is very dangerous, as it can flow into the ears or nose and cause infection.
3. Obstacles or Interference with Speech Ability
Apart from confusing the baby with the nipple, the difference in the mechanism of action between the pacifier and the mother’s nipple also has a negative impact on ability talking baby at a later time. When a baby wants to drink milk from the nipple, he must try to suck the milk so that the milk can flow into his mouth. The active movement of the baby’s jaw to suck breast milk from the mother’s nipple will make her speech develop rapidly. Meanwhile, when drinking breast milk from a pacifier, the baby does not need to move his jaw frequently. As a result, his jaw becomes stiff and will slow down his speaking ability.
4. Bad Impact on Dentition
Long-term use of pacifiers will also adversely affect the formation of the structure of your little one’s teeth and teeth. The habit of drinking milk from a pacifier can result in a too developed or retracted maxillary shape, as he often has to hold or bite the pacifier to prevent it from falling.
