Tethering Baby's Pacifier to His Shirt
Risk: Your baby wants his Binky close at hand and -- for peace of mind -- you may too. But attaching a pacifier to your little one's clothing with a long ribbon (or, worse yet, tying it around his neck) could strangle him.
Remedy: A pacifier clip is a safe alternative, but only if the tether or ribbon is less than seven inches long. Any longer than that and it could wrap around a baby's neck.
