Dummies Do’s and Don’ts

As a speech therapist I get asked a lot about what my views are on using dummies (also known as pacifiers and soothers). Before I had my own children I’d have said not to use them due to the impact they may have on speech and language development, however my views have changed as I have learned more about infant behaviour in my feeding work and also since becoming a mother.
