Mom to a baby boy? Back away from the binky. ScienceDaily reports a trio of experiments show pacifiers, well, kinda suck when it comes to the emotional development -- particularly learning facial expressions -- of young boys.

The experiments are summed up in a new studyout of the University of Wisconsin-Madison, which states that people, regardless of age, take on both expressions and body language of others.

Interesting! Two of my 3 boys used a pacifier until the age of one.  How about your kiddos? Do they use a pacifier?
