December 2014:Pacifier use does not alter sleep and spontaneous arousal patterns
Epidemiological studies have shown that pacifier use may protect against sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS), even when infants sleep prone. Failure to arouse from sleep is thought to increase the risk for SIDS, but any preventative effect of pacifiers for SIDS seems to be through mechanisms other than increased arousability. When Alexandra Odoi and her colleagues examined spontaneous arousals in 30 infants over the first six months of life, they found no differences in sleep or spontaneous arousal patterns between pacifier users and nonusers (pp. 1244-1250).
