The pacifier, a companion for your baby’s wellbeing

The pacifier, a companion for your baby’s wellbeing

Small giants 22 November, 2019

By nature, small children feel calm when they suck their thumb or hands. A pacifier can be an alternative option to encourage this feeling.

It is normal for small children to have a need to suck after breastfeeding or being fed from their bottle, because it gives them greater peace of mind. However, it is important to know when it is appropriate to give them a pacifier in order to prevent this from becoming a substitute for meals or a convenience mechanism for parents who, on occasion, use it to manage uncontrollable temper tantrums.

The website Healthy Children from the American Academy of Pediatrics offers some advice for choosing and appropriately using a pacifier when raising your baby:

  • Avoid using honey, sugar, or other sweet substances to bribe your child to use the pacifier. It is best not to force them.
  • Pacifiers come in various sizes and shapes, so opt for one that has a base wider than your child’s mouth.
  • Clean the pacifier periodically, boiling it before its next use, as this will prevent your baby from being exposed to infections.
  • The recommended age to stop using a pacifier is between six months and 1 year. Using a pacifier after 2 years of age can cause dental problems.

In order to stay as healthy as possible, it is necessary to minimize your exposure to high levels of air pollution.

During aerobic activity, people tend to inhale more deeply and forcefully. Also, some people have a habit of breathing through their mouth which causes polluted air full of particles not only to travel through the nostrils and pharynx, but also the mouth area. As a consequence, health problems associated with air pollution increase, such as damage to airways, asthma, eye irritation, headaches, heart conditions, etc.

However, exercise continues to be key to having a healthy lifestyle, which is why the Mayo Clinic recommends taking measures that mitigate the effects of pollution without abandoning exercise completely. Some studies have shown that the long-term benefits of regular exercise outweigh the risks related to exposure to air pollution. So:

  • Get informed on pollution levels: Most cities have organizations that implement warning systems to measure air quality. There are also websites that provide this information at a global level in real time. With this information on hand, it is easier to decide what days and what times it is best to go outside.
  • Vary your routine with indoor exercises: Indoor dance classes, gyms, or covered courts are an option to stop exposing your lungs to air pollution every day.
  • Reduce the intensity: When there is an air quality warning, reducing the duration of exercise is recommended, as well as exercising in the morning, since pollution worsens around midday or in the afternoon during rush hour.
