Moms know there’s nothing more wonderful than a calm, content baby, so Tommee Tippee has developed a new range of pacifiers that are approved by infants.

So when you need to turn screams and sobs into smiles and sleep, simply pick up a Tommee Tippee pacifier. 2 pacifiers in each box (colors may vary), pack of 2 boxes, total 4 Pacifiers.
How do I clean the pacifier?
If it only falls briefly on the floor, it is sufficient to wash it off with hot water. If it is heavily soiled, it should be placed in boiling water for five minutes, and thus sterilized – even before the first use. Parents also check whether the suction piece becomes cracked, brittle, rough or sticky. At the latest, a good piece should be replaced.
From the first birthday, parents increasingly put the pacifier aside during the day – for example when playing. At the latest when the child turns three, efforts to separate themselves from the nipple should be intensified. It helps many children to give the pacifier to the pacifier fairy or to donate it to a new baby. “Don’t stress. If it doesn’t work the first time, try again a little later,” says pediatrician Florin Lang.
Which pacifier to choose for the bottle?
When it comes to a pacifier, you are spoiled for choice. You will first need to decide between silicone and rubber teats, the former being the most widespread today. They are indeed odorless and their transparency makes it possible to regulate the flow of milk. In addition, they resist washing well.
A positive point for rubber teats: they are ideal if the baby has trouble sucking because they are flexible. You will also need to take into account the shape of the teats. Many brands offer nipples that approximate the shape of the breast to facilitate the transition between breastfeeding and bottle feeding thanks to which the milk flows naturally into the baby’s mouth, without effort, and which limits the ingestion of excess air allowing a reduction in digestive disorders (bloating, regurgitation, infant colic).
What are the advantages of a pacifier?
Your baby has an innate suction reflex in the first few years. The babies suck their thumbs already in the womb. The pacifier, therefore, provides comfort to the little ones, soothing and relaxing them. But the pacifier also harbors the risk of a misaligned jaw or tooth and delayed language acquisition. For this reason, experts advise weaning the pacifier again at the age of three.
The benefits of a pacifier
The main advantage of the pacifier, the one that makes you adopt it, is soothing! The one felt me a baby who, reassured by his sucking reflex, will stop crying and calm down little by little. And that of the parents who find there an answer to their questions and doubts about the anger or pain of their child. This is not the only benefit of the pacifier.
- The self-soothing it provides to the child allows him to better regulate his rhythm, find sleep more easily and space night meals earlier.
- The teat can be sterilized whenever necessary.
- Unlike the thumb, instinctively brought to the mouth without even thinking about it, it will be easier for the growing child to abandon his pacifier after an exchange with the parents and a little time.
- In premature children, the practice of the pacifier would facilitate the taking of the bottle, therefore feeding and PTO, which accelerates the return home.
- Last and perhaps most important advantage: the pacifier would considerably reduce the risk of sudden infant death syndrome. The position of the open mouth around the pacifier during sleep would promote ventilation and reduce the risk of reflux.
