There are many different types of dummies on the market, so which baby dummy should you choose? Firstly, it is important to check the sizing of the dummy as they change depending on your baby’s age. The teat of the baby dummy will change in size and be more suitable for newborn mouths.
Most pacifiers come in a newborn size and a size suitable for 6 months of age plus. For a newborn dummy, we would recommend size 1. Then once your baby grows, upgrade them to the larger size 2 pacifier…
Next, it is essential to consider the material you would like for a baby pacifier. Silicone is the most popular as it is a soft material that is completely free from BPA, PVC and phthalates making it 100% safe for babies.
The transparent and clear teat of silicone dummies makes them clearly identifiable. The teat has a smooth, flat surface that can withstand heat better than natural rubber. Another great advantage of a silicone baby soother is that you can put them in the freezer to aid with sore gums during teething.
Finally, a dummy chain or case is recommended to ensure that your newborn pacifier is not lost or dropped. It also allows you to carry spare dummies with you. Can never have enough backup dummies!
