Please note the American Academy of Pediatrics does not have practicing pediatricians on staff to respond to parental requests regarding individual medical conditions, or questions about the Academy’s policies and statements. Your best resource for this information is your pediatrician. If you do not have a pediatrician, you may search Find a Pediatrician or you may contact the physician referral service at your local hospital or county medical society.
Parents can transmit decay-causing bacteria to their baby by cleaning a pacifier with their mouths or pre-tasting their baby’s food.
