Orlando Bloom Holds Son's Pacifier in His Mouth; Is That Safe?

It's a dirty lil secret that most mothers don't care to share. When a lil one's pacifier falls to the ground, what's the easiest way to clean it before popping it back in their mouth? In mom's mouth, of course. According to doctors and dentists, the all-to-common practice may be fast, but it's also dangerous. Moving something from mom's mouth to tot's transmits bacteria, such as Streptococcus, which can lead to cavities in kids of all ages.

Someone may want to tell Orlando Bloom about these hidden dangers. The new pop was spotted leaving baby Flynn's pediatrician's office with the infant's Hevea car pacifier ($9) sticking out of his mouth. The natural rubber paci may be eco-friendly and sustainably produced, but if it's carrying dad's germs, all of that gets thrown out the window!

When my girl was a baby she turned her binky every which way and slobbered all voer it, I figured all babies did. Anyway Orlando Bloom has some serious $$$$$, even if baby does get a cavity it's not like he can't afford the dentist.

Yes I agree - the nipple isn't in his mouth! I always have my son's pacifier in my mouth like that, there is a tab on the back of the Soothie pacifiers and I assumed that is what it was for!

He doesn't even have the part that goes in the kids mouth in his mouth, just the handle.
