Pacifiers OK for Breastfeeding Babies

To binkie or not to binkie, that's the question for new parents.

Should parents be giving their newborns pacifiers?

They claim giving a newborn a pacifier every now and then may actually increase the amount they breast-feed.

Doctors recommend mothers breastfeed exclusively for the first six months.
