Well this just in as we count down to Mother's Day... Researchers in Sweden have found that the best way to clean your kid's pacifier is . . . to LICK IT!  You read that right.

This runs contrary to pretty much everything we believe about hygiene . . . but hey, it sounds GREAT if you're lazy :-)

Researchers found that when parents licked or sucked pacifiers
instead of washing or boiling them, that extra germ exposure helped their kids.  Those kids had fewer allergies and lower rates of eczema and asthma.
