Should Parents Suck on Their Baby’s Pacifier to Clean It Off? [POLL]

Is sucking on your baby’s pacifier a good idea?  A study published Monday in the journal “Pediatrics”  says it is. I think it’s kind of gross – for the parent and the baby.  To me, it’s like when my mom used to wash my face with her spit.

Researchers with “Pediatrics” report that infants whose parents sucked on their pacifiers to clean them developed fewer allergies than children whose parents typically rinsed or boiled the pacifiers. Children with pacifier-sucking parents also had lower rates of eczema and fewer signs of asthma. What do you think?  Answer our poll.
