My mom sucked mine and my brother's pacifiers clean, so I guess that's why we don't have allergies. I called my grandma and asked how she cleaned my mom's and my aunt's and she said she just washed it off with water and my mom and aunt have bad allergies.

Would pre chewing food for your baby be even better? even though it would it sounds gross, the food would already be digesting and the baby would get the bacteria from mom or dad.

I remember when everyone was freaking out about I think it was Alicia Silverstone pre-chewing her son's food.  That probably helps babies as well in the same kind of area.

I believe what Anthony said about people living together can develop an immunity to allergies. I live with my boyfriend and we have a cat, at first I sneezed nonstop the first day we got her because I've never had a cat before and had dogs only for a short time in my childhood. He's had cats all his life because his mom wanted them and he had allergic reactions, mostly the sniffles and a mild headache. Now after living in close contact with me, I don't have any allergies to cats, he's basically developed an immunity to the cat hair. I no longer hear him complain about a headache nor does he sniffle.

Plus you could be a badass like that one guy from one piece… and use a pacifier like a real man.

When I was a baby I didn't get a pacifier. Nor did I let my kids have one.

when babies are born, they are as sterile as possible. Their mouth does not have bacteria that can cause tooth decay, gingivitis, periodontitis, etc. later on in their lives. However their parents have significantly large amounts of bacteria in their mouth as any other human being. Sucking the pecifier is simply giving these bacteria to the child and jeopardizing their intra oral health.

But, if you do that and HAVE an allergy yourself, does that make the baby MORE likely to get the same allergies and such?

but i don't want to put a pacifier from the floor in my own mouth!!! can I wash it off and then do the rest that the video suggests?

I still have a pacifier

Omg. He just said baby’s are stupid??? 😂. I’ve seen moms suck their baby’s pacifier clean when it would hit the floor. I use to think that was strange but having the germs of the mom rather then germs, that are on the floor, get into the baby, has to be better either way.
