10. Don’t Give A Pacifier
I was told over and over again to delay giving my newborn a pacifier, that it would mess up breastfeeding and more. Fast forward to our third night at home and our little guy wouldn't stop crying and we're at a loss. We decide to try the "horrible" pacifier and it sootheed him almost immediately. We all got some sleep and there were no issues nursing. My belief: If it helps soothe a brand new baby, it's OK.
