NEW YORK -- Most young children use bottles, sippy cups or pacifiers, but they may not be as safe as parents think. A new study in the journal, Pediatrics, finds more than 45,000 children under age 3 went to the hospital for injuries caused by those products over a nearly 20-year period.
    That's about 1 child every 4-hours. 86% of accidents happened when children fell. Study authors recommend toddlers not have these products in their mouths when they're walking.
