A Pacifier Warning All Parents Should Read ASAP
Everybody knows you have to watch what babies put in their mouth, but what if something that’s specifically made to go in their mouth is a risk? I’ve never been concerned about pacifiers before, but one dad’s viral warning has parents wondering about the safety of the soothers. Could a baby choke on a pacifier?
Earl Wilson, dad to an 18-month-old girl, wrote a Facebook post warning parents about a specific type of pacifier: the Tommee Tippee Closer to Nature Soother. Wilson wrote:
Beware, my daughter nearly choked on this Tommee Tippee soother yesterday morning. If it wasn’t for my wife’s quick thinking I’d hate to think what would of happened. My daughter turned blue and Sam had to remove the teat from her throat. My main concern is it’s an owl dummy (associated with night) so people will be using it at bed time. I don’t think my daughter would be here now if this happened in the middle of the night.
