Yeah, cause toddlers never pick up random things off the floor and put them in their mouths.

1) awesome page 2 in that article
2) "The majority of things you're going to find on a pacifier are things we'll find on our clothes, normal human flora," THIS.. 100% THIS.. also of note.. if not using a PACIFIER they are using their thumbs... theirs thumbs which are actually touching all sorts of things all over the place.
3) when you drop a pacifier on the ground obviously the best way to clean is it to simply stick it in your own ultra clean mouth and wiping it on your super clean shirt before giving it back to baby

1) you're not supposed to use a paci for the first few months (Nipple Confusion, your new band name), which gives the youngling time to build an immune system

2) babies stick all kinds of dirty things in their mouths on a minute by minute basis anyway. pacifiers are not the worst of it.

3) If this were a real problem the infant mortality rate would be much higher in this country.
