Pacifier Guide

SAFETY FIRST

There are several key safety tips when using a pacifiers:
❗️Do the Pull Test every time before you give your child a dummy: Pull the pacifier nipple in all directions, and discard at the first signs of damage or weakness. 
❗️Replace regularly: Check the manufacturer’s leaflet to see how long it recommends you use the dummy for. Rubber pacifier lifespan is around 4-6 weeks (depending on usage). Throw away any dummy that shows signs of wear and tear, including a hole, a rip or even discolouration. If you are using rubber pacifier, the elasticity of the material allows the nipple to change shape and size because of the baby’s strong vacuum, this means that the nipple in some cases can expand if it is not replaced in time.

❗️Sterilise only according to the manufacturer’s instructions : Please read our cleaning guide here 
🙅🏼‍♀️ Never leave a dummy in direct sunlight or near a strong source of heat, such as a radiator, as this can cause rubber to perish.
 

PACIFIER NIPPLE SHAPE AND SIZE

When it comes to the nipple no size or shape is right or wrong because all babies are different. Babies have different preferences, different sucking techniques, and different mouth anatomy. Therefore, we offer different pacifiers that meet all these different needs.

It can be necessary to try out different shapes and sizes to find the perfect fit for your child. Some babies prefer a certain nipple shape, size, or material while others do not have any preferences.

 

Round Nipple

Resembles the shape and size of the mother’s breast to provide comfort to your baby. Further, the round nipple promotes a similar tongue placement and sucking technique when breastfeeding, since the round shape allows the sides of the tongue to elevate and cup around the nipple, just like it
does during breastfeeding. The shield comes in one size no matter the nipple size. Also available in a night version with a glow-in-the-dark handle. The nipple is produced from natural rubber latex. Since natural rubber latex is a natural material color variation may occur.
Available in natural rubber latex in sizes 1, 2 and 3.

Symmetrical Nipple

Supreme is an exclusive wide shield pacifier. With its symmetrical flat-drop shaped nipple, we accommodate babies who prefer the flat symmetrical nipple shape. The drop-shaped nipple promotes a tongue placement and sucking technique where the tongue is flat and presses the pacifier flat against the palate, which means that the baby does not need to suck as hard, as with a round nipple, for the pacifier to flatten inside the mouth. The shield and nipple are symmetrical, which means that the pacifier always lies correctly in your baby’s mouth. Also, the shield is carefully designed with large holes on each side to ensure minimum contact with the sensitive and delicate skin around the baby’s mouth, which means less chance of moisture build-up from saliva that can cause rashes and sore spots. The shield comes in two different sizes that match the nipple size. The bigger the nipple - the bigger the shield.

 Silicone VS Rubber

Both Silicone and Rubber are very different and have great properties.

Natural Rubber Latex 

Natural Rubber latex is a natural material made from a sticky milky fluid tapped from the Hevea tree. The fluid is refined to the brown/yellow rubber you know from your pacifiers; a super soft, elastic, and resilient material very much resembling the mother’s soft nipple.
The natural material comes with a natural aging process affected by natural influences like UV-light, air, saliva, and heat. The elasticity of the material allows the nipple to change shape and size because of the baby’s strong vacuum, this means that the nipple in some cases can expand if it is not replaced in time.
Natural rubber latex pacifiers should be scalded rather than boiled and replaced every 4-6 weeks for safety and hygienic reasons. Since rubber is a natural material color variation may occur.
Silicone
Silicone is an industrially manufactured hypoallergenic, odorless, and taste-neutral material that is known for its purity. It is 100% free of harmful and endocrine-disrupting ingredients such as BPA, PVC, and phthalates. The smooth transparent nipple is not as soft as natural rubber latex, but it retains its shape, does not age, and can withstand high temperatures.
BIBS silicone nipples are made of food-grade silicone.
For hygienic reasons we still recommend replacing your pacifiers every 4-6 weeks.
