Self-cleaning your baby's pacifier may be a good thing

Parents are bound to get funny looks if they suck on their baby's pacifier to clean it, but new research suggests it may be the right thing to do!

Eczema rates were also lower for three year olds.

Researchers believe it may have something to do with being exposed to saliva.
