To paci or not to paci


I am a nursing mom to a 3.5 week old . I just gave my baby a pacifier for the first time and Idk how i feel about it. I read it can cause a a baby to want to end nursing early which i dnt want .

I also read it can reduce the risks of SIDS during sleep time but i dnt want her to get dependent on it . Any new moms care to share their experience with the pacifier?
