    Do overuse of pacifiers slow speech development?

    Good one! We’ll look into whether it does anything to your teeth, too. That’s something we’ve seen marketed on a few pacifiers.

    Hey Louise! We did some research and here’s what we found. Let us know if you have any other questions! https://www.parentifact.org/pacifiers-mess-teeth-delay-speech/

    Re-posting this comment from Adriane Miliotis, which was lost when we transferred to a new web server this week:

    “Similarly, are sippy cups bad for speech development? Are straw cups or something like the Munchkin Miracle 360 (https://www.munchkin.com/miracle-stainless-steel-360-deg-10oz-sippy-cup.html) better? What is the optimal age to introduce a cup to a child?”

    We’re looking into the claims of products like this, that sippy cups have any long-term effect on the way children’s mouths develop.
