The Pacify Team

Pacify is bringing peace of mind to new parents. We listened to hundreds of parents across the country tell us about what they really needed and where the current options fell short. We created Pacify for one reason: to bring peace of mind to parents when they need it most.

 

Research clearly demonstrates that breast milk provides superior health, nutritional, economic, and emotional benefits to both mom and baby. Consistent with that body of evidence, Pacify is committed to following the breastfeeding recommendations set forth by the American Academy of Pediatrics and the World Health Organization (WHO).
