Does not glow longer than 1 hour; poor design
We bought 2 packs of these (4 total) to put in our baby's crib at night so she could find her pacifier easier.
Ease of Use: POOR - We put them in direct, bright light for 20 minutes during her bath, then tossed them in the crib the crib with her when we put her to sleep (remembering to put them into direct light every night before bed is a step in her bedtime routine I can definitely live without).
Performance: POOR - An hour after I put her to bed, I went to check on her and couldn't see ANY of them because they weren't glowing anymore. Needless to say, I was very disappointed.
Design: POOR - These do not have the "cut out" on both sides, so when our baby puts this pacifier in her mouth upside down, it hits the tip of her nose. Maybe this isn't a problem for older children because there's more space between their mouth and nose, but it seems to bother our 8 month old.
We've always used the Freeflow design, so I didn't realize these ones were shaped differently when I purchased them. The Freeflow shape has cut outs on both sides for the baby's nose, so there's no putting them in "upside down." Why not just make all pacifiers like this?
