Of our two children, one loved pacifiers from about the time that he was born, and the other one would never really take them at all. So in our experience, different children like different things. Some like pacifiers, and some don't. But for our son that loves pacifiers, he always liked this particular kind. It was easy for him to suck on, and as he grew and was able to grasp thing in his hands, the ring on this pacifier was very easy for him to grip. The design of the ring on this product helped him develop some fine motor skills as he learned to grip it and put it back into his mouth himself. This product is also generally safe for children. Different children can react to different things, but our son never had a problem with an allergic reaction or bad skin reaction through the use of this product. Altogether, I would highly recommend this product for any baby that is willing to take a pacifier.
