If the mother decided to go to work or purely physiologically able to feed the baby her milk, ordinary nipple may become a necessary substitute for the breast. There are other situations when the mother has to leave home for a long time, for example, the need to go to the hospital or a long time to leave.
It is believed that children born before the due date, the nipple helps to develop sucking reflexes, in this case, the training of the baby takes place on a specially developed techniques under the strict supervision of experts.
Feeding regime can also be accompanied using a pacifier, it will help to alleviate the gaps between eating, will be replaced by baby toys, diapers and a hand, which the child will inevitably try to satisfy their natural reflexes.
