Science has shown, that soothers and breastfeeding do not interfere with each other, as soon as breastfeeding is going well.
Dr. Alejandro G. Jenik, head of Neonatlogy at the Hospital Italiano in Buenos Aires (AR) and his team conducted an extensive study with over 1 000 mothers and babies in five different hospitals.
Once a good breastfeeding relationship is established the occasional use of a soother can be introduced. Babies know their territory and learn quickly to differentiate between the use of a soother and their need to suck in order to feed. In this way a soother is the ideal support when it comes to satisfying the non-nutritional urge to suck.
