Can Baby Pacifiers Be Borrowed And Used By Other Babies?
if my baby’s pacifier is borrowed by another child, is it OK?
Thank you for the question.
Exchange pacifiers with other children at risk of causing your child to contract various diseases, such as infections in the oral cavity, digestive infections, respiratory infections, and so on. These infections are mild, but some are dangerous, even deadly.
As an effort to prevent this, you should not let your child exchange pacifiers with other children. Not only pacifiers, you should also not let your child exchange other eating and drinking utensils, toiletries, as well as other personal items. Even if the child looks healthy, it does not mean that there are no harmful microorganisms in the body that can cause disease. If your child has poor immune systems, microorganisms that do not cause illness in other people can trigger serious conditions in your child.
If the dot has already been lent by another child, the steps that should be taken are:
Wash thoroughly and sterilize the pacifier before reuse
Make the dot, and replace it with a new one
Hope this helps ...
