The round nipple promotes a similar tongue placement and sucking technique when breastfeeding, since the round shape allows the sides of the tongue to elevate and cup around the nipple, just like it does during breastfeeding.
The nipple is equipped with a valve, letting out air when the baby closes down on the nipple thereby flattening the nipple to shape naturally after the baby's oral cavity.
The nipple is produced from natural rubber latex. Since natural rubber latex is a natural material, color variation may occur.
The round lightweight shield faces away from the sensitive and delicate skin around the baby's mouth to ensure minimum contact with the baby's nose and mouth, which means less chance of moisture build-up from saliva that can cause rashes and sore spots.
The shield comes in one size no matter the nipple size.

Safety & Care Instructions
Part of good pacifier hygiene is frequent cleaning of the pacifiers. The younger the child, the more important it is to protect it from bacteria and to maintain good pacifier hygiene.
Before first use, place the pacifier in plenty of boiling water for 5 min. to ensure hygiene. This only applies before first use.
When cleaning the pacifier subsequently, follow these three simple steps:
- Put the pacifiers in a clean bowl. Pour them with plenty of boiling water.
- Let the pacifiers soak for approx. 5 min.
- Pick them up and let them dry on a clean towel.
After cleaning it is not unusual that water remains in the nipple. This is due to the fact that all our pacifier nipples are equipped with a valve, letting out air when the baby closes down on the nipple.
This ventilation system causes the air from inside the nipple to be pushed out through the valve thereby flattening the nipple to shape naturally after the baby's oral cavity. The valve is also the reason why water can be present inside the nipple after cleaning and sterilization. If this is the case, simply just squeeze the nipple flat to press out the excess water. If water drops remain in the nipple, just let the pacifier air-dry.
Natural rubber latex can in rare cases smear off to the shield, so it is important to scald in plenty of water and not too many pacifiers at a time.
Do not cook!
Pacifiers are not meant to be boiled and are therefore destroyed by the high heat. Instead, follow the instructions above, and you are sure to kill the bacteria without compromising the durability of the pacifier.
- Do not leave natural rubber latex pacifiers in direct sunlight.
- Do not put the pacifiers in the dishwasher.
- Do not use UV or steam sterilizers for the pacifiers.
- Do not freeze the pacifiers.
TIP: When the child is over 3 months, you can also rinse the pacifier by placing them in a sieve and pouring them with boiling water. This method is faster and avoids water collecting inside the nipple.
How often should I clean the pacifiers?
Part of good pacifier hygiene is frequent cleaning of the pacifiers. The younger the child, the more important it is to protect it from bacteria and to maintain good pacifier hygiene. This is mainly because small children’s immune system has not yet managed to get acquainted with all the different bacteria, and therefore it will not have learned to “defend” against them yet.
Premature infants and babies up to 3 months need more thorough and frequent cleaning than babies over 3 months of age. Therefore, the pacifier must be cleaned more often when the child is under 3 months. We always recommend that pacifiers are scalded at least once a day.
