  • Researchers have found that cleaning your baby’s pacifier by sucking it can have great health benefits on the child.

    According to reports, babies whose parents sucked their pacifiers clean were less likely to develop eczema, food allergies and asthma in comparison to those whose parents opted to clean their pacifiers with water.

    Researchers from the University of Gothenburg in Sweden wrote,”We demonstrate that a common parental practice, sucking on the infant’s pacifier before it is given back to the infant, is associated with protection against early eczema development and asthma symptoms.”

    The researchers studied 184 swedish infants.
