Congratulations on your new baby! They are so cute and you want to do everything you can to make sure they are happy and comfortable. You have probably seen a lot of different pacifiers on the market, including some that glow in the dark. You may be wondering if these are safe for your baby. Let’s take a look.
Glow in the Dark Pacifier Safety
The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) says that pacifiers are safe for babies when they are used correctly. Some parents worry about the safety of glow-in-the-dark pacifiers because they contain small amounts of phosphorus. However, the AAP says that this is not a concern because the amount of phosphorus in these pacifiers is very small and not harmful to babies.
The AAP also says that there is no evidence that sucking on a pacifier increases the risk of ear infections. In fact, studies have shown that babies who use pacifiers have a lower risk of SIDS (sudden infant death syndrome).
So, are glow-in-the-dark pacifiers safe? The answer is yes! The AAP says that they are safe for babies when used correctly and there is no evidence that they increase the risk of ear infections or SIDS. So go ahead and give your baby a glowing smile!
