New research suggests that toddlers who use dummies are three times more at risk of speech problems.
Scientists have found toddlers who have used a pacifier for at least three years are more likely to have difficulties talking than children who don’t use them.
The study also found that Toddlers who suck their thumbs are also at greater risk of delayed speech development.
Although the findings are preliminary, parents who give their preschool children dummies ‘buy themselves’ peace and quiet at the expense of their child’s development.
