Breastfeeding was very important to me and even though I didn’t do a bunch of research when I was pregnant with my first child, I knew that many professionals try to discourage moms from introducing artificial nipples or pacifiers to your breastfed baby for a minimum of 6 to 8 weeks to avoid nipple confusion.  If artificial nipples are introduced to early, you baby may end up preferring an artificial nipple and may refuse to breastfeed.  While, other babies have no problems with nipple confusion.  All babies are born with a natural instinct to nurse from the breast, in fact, if you place a newborn baby on the mother’s tummy shortly after birth your baby will make their way to your breast. If you plan on breastfeeding your baby exclusively, it is up to you to determine what is best for your child and it is your choice to give your pacifier or bottle.
