Two-way Pacifier / Pacifier

Two-way Pacifier
Two-way Pacifier

Crying is the main way in which a baby can arouse concern of their parents. Parents inevitably get anxious emotions when paying attention to the baby’s crying. Parents listen for sound of baby’s crying to know where they have not done right yet, while too much crying from baby will make parents feel bad. So parents need some other voice from baby to know that they do good parenting. "Two-way pacifier" will record the soft sound of the baby sucking pacifier. These pleasant and gentle sounds can be considered as a positive feedback from baby so as to create a new way to compensate for the anxious emotions evoke by baby’s crying.
