    Pacifiers FAQs

    Choosing the right pacifier for your little one is essential to ensure that they are soothed properly and safely. Pacifiers come in two sizes according to the baby's stage and age. Picking the incorrect size may lead to discomfort and even become a potential safety hazard.

    When selecting a pacifier, each brand's sizing may vary based on the shape and material of the nipple. Therefore, it is crucial to check the product page for sizing before purchasing. It is safe to start using pacifiers for babies around 3 to 4 weeks old, giving them plenty of time to adjust.

    Depending on where you're from, there are many names for pacifiers. Some of the most common names in the UK include soother, dummy, binky, sucky - but this can vary familiy to family!

    When it comes to using a dummy, it's best to wait until breastfeeding is established. This process may vary but typically takes a few weeks. If you need assistance, don't hesitate to seek help. Once established, introducing a dummy won't have any negative impact. Bottle-fed babies can soothe with a dummy from birth, while breastfed babies may use the breast for comfort and calming.

    Little ones often find comfort in sucking, making pacifiers a temporary distraction. They can especially come in handy during stressful situations such as vaccinations or blood tests, helping to soothe your little one. Additionally, pacifiers can assist with sleep. However, it is important to note that like anything else, there are pros and cons to pacifier use. On the positive side, pacifiers can distract from stressful stimuli and even provide pain relief during uncomfortable medical procedures.

    Pacifiers aren't just for comforting your baby, they also help relieve discomfort and aid digestion by promoting saliva production. The sucking motion can soothe your little one and even help settle them down for a nap. Plus, if they're having trouble burping, using a pacifier while gently patting or rubbing their back can help release those stubborn air bubbles.
