I favor only beneficial reinforcement for babies.
That said, someone on quora asked about how to get them to cry less.
I think that if a pacifier gets sweeter anytime a baby gurgles or coos, yet remains unflavored during crying, the baby might cry less.
Some chemicals are 100,000 times sweeter
than sugar (sucronic acid) so the flavor reserve should be able to last a while.
