Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically it is difficult to predict whether a baby is hungry or that the baby just wants to calm down by just pacifying. In small babies, there are often periods of growth spurt (or periods of rapid growth) where babies become hungry more quickly, are more fussy, and wake up more often at night (can also actually be sleeping longer). At this time, the baby may drink more and more frequently than usual.
In principle, drinking milk is essential for babies, while pacifiers are not. If your baby shows signs of hunger (the baby's tongue sticks out, makes tasting noises with his mouth, puts his hands or other objects in his mouth, turns his head and opens his mouth when you put his finger in one corner of his lips - or is called a rooting reflex), then you can try giving milk to the baby first. If the baby refuses to drink his milk, then you can try giving a pacifier for the baby. Although it is still very small, the baby can already know when he is hungry and when he is full. When the baby feels full, the baby will not continue to drink milk again. Forcing to give milk to a baby that is full can increase the chance of the baby vomiting.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
