I'm a new mom and I have a 4-month-old baby. The pediatrician suggested that I introduce a pacifier to my baby to soothe her when she's upset. However, I'm not sure how to go about introducing it without creating a habit that's hard to break later on.
Additionally, for those who have experience, what are some tips for breaking the pacifier habit when the time comes? I don't want my baby to become overly dependent on it and have difficulties giving it up.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance!
