About the JustBørn Pacifier Clip

Our pacifier clip consist of wooden and metal parts, designed for durability. However, these materials can be sensitive to moisture. When the clip is frequently exposed to moisture (such as saliva, water etc) or is in a high humidity environment, the integrity of both the wooden and metal components can be compromised quickly without adequate drying.

It can be challenging to prevent these natural processes entirely, which is why we suggest to replace the clip every 3 months for safety and hygiene reasons. That being said, you should still clean your pacifier clips regularly to prevent buildup of bacteria and germs.
