Sophie, mother of Sam, shares her experience with our orthodontic pacifiers. Hear her tips and tricks for using, storing and cleaning our pacifiers in a clean and hygienic way.
How do pacifiers affect breastfeeding and bottle feeding? I don’t want to confuse my baby.
The reality is, your baby has a natural suckling instinct and you can’t always be available. Pacifiers are designed to satisfy that instinct and comfort your little one. As long as breastfeeding is well established, there should be no nipple confusion when you introduce a pacifier. I suggest a one-piece design like the Philips Avent Soothie. It’s made of medical grade silicone, and it’s used by medical professionals to calm newborns in hospitals across the country.
