You can use special pacifier wipes as well as sanitizers which are safe for babies who tend to put items in their mouths.
Generally, kids tend to spread sickness to others by touching an item or a toy which contains germs and then touching their mouths with it. Adults must ensure that these products are sanitized often so that children don't catch an infection which can prove to be painful over time.
