If you suck your child’s pacifier to clean it, there is no need to be embarrassed. You may be actually helping your kid avoid eczema and asthma. It may actually help in strengthening your child’s immune system and keep him away from developing certain allergies. A study indicates that when parents clean pacifiers in this way their children will significantly be less likely to develop eczema which is the most common early form of allergy.
No one can protect and take care of a child except her mother. Mother always tries to take care of her children by all possible means. There are many such tasks that you never did before but you have to do these tasks just for your kids. It is often observed that mothers boil pacifiers to kill the germs in order to keep her children away from diseases.
But isn’t it better to suck on your baby’s pacifier? It is easy to do and best way to protect your baby from germs that also keeps your baby’s immune system strong. This has also been proved by researches.
Harmless bacteria from mother’s saliva strengthen a baby’s immune system which in turn helps protect them against allergies. The study shows that allergies such as eczema, asthma and food allergies where produced in babies whose parents cleaned their pacifier with saliva.
When parents clean pacifier with saliva, they are introducing gut microflora which is a microscopic organism mostly bacteria that live in the digestive tract. If infants have diverse microflora in their guts, then children will have fewer allergies and less eczema. So when parents suck on the pacifier, they are transferring microflora to their kids.
Research has shown that babies need to be exposed to a wide variety of bacteria, viruses and other organisms to help their immune systems develop and mature properly. If this does not happen early then the baby’s immune system tends to overreact to harmless particles. Sucking on baby’s pacifier may end up giving babies just the right kind of good germs to better equip them to battle against the more dangerous germs.
