Parents are bound to get funny looks if they suck on their baby's pacifier to clean it, but new research suggests it may be the right thing to do!
A Swedish study found children whose parents who used this pacifier cleaning method had a third of the risk of developing eczema at 18 months old than other kids.
Eczema rates were also lower for three year olds.
Researchers believe it may have something to do with being exposed to saliva.
