New research finds that if your child drops their pacifier on the floor, you'll be doing them a bigger favor if you stick it in your own mouth before giving it back, rather than rinsing it in the sink.

Researchers say they found a connection between parents licking kids' pacifiers and kids having lower risks of allergy-related conditions such as asthma.

Researchers say this may happen because the action introduces harmless bacteria into the baby's body, which in turn will strengthen the baby's immune system.
