Part of good pacifier hygiene is frequent cleaning of the pacifiers. The younger the child, the more important it is to protect it from bacteria and to maintain good pacifier hygiene.
When cleaning the pacifier subsequently, follow these three simple steps:
- Put the pacifiers in a clean bowl. Pour them with plenty of boiling water.
- Let the pacifiers soak for approx. 5 min.
- Pick them up and let them dry on a clean towel.
After cleaning water can remain in the nipple. This is due to the fact that all our pacifier nipples are equipped with a valve, letting out air when the baby closes down on the nipple. This ventilation system causes the air from inside the nipple to be pushed out through the valve thereby flattening the nipple to shape naturally after the baby's oral cavity. The valve is also the reason why water can be present inside the nipple after cleaning and sterilization. If this is the case, simply just squeeze the nipple flat to press out the excess water. If water drops remain in the nipple, just let the pacifier air-dry.
