This product worked for us and I would highly recommend it for other babies who are struggling to find their own pacifier and put it back in their mouths.
- Baby Sleep For Me
All in all, this is a great product. I would definitely recommend it but with a note that you should test our your pacifier in the hug ring before buying.

Some users said that the silicone in these pacifiers is very hard and may cause baby to reject them.

Too heavy, the weight caused the pacifier to fall out more

That being said, I noticed that the Soothie is not very secure while attached to the Paci-Plushies.

An Overview On Pacifiers

Pacifiers, sometimes referred to as binkies or dummies, are a source of comfort for babies. Parents who choose to provide their infants and toddlers with a pacifier will want to do a little research before deciding which one is best.

First, pacifiers are sold in several different sizes that are based on the age of the child. You’ll find them in newborn, 0 to 6 months, 6+ months, 12+ months and 18+ months.

Once you identify the binkies in your baby’s size, check the material that the product is made from. Most are made of silicone, but you also want to check the label to make sure there aren’t any toxic chemicals. For example, the Ryan & Rose Cutie PAT All-in-One Pacifier states that it is latex, BPA, PVC and phthalate-free.

Next, examine the shape of the binky’s nipple and shield. Dr. Brown’s HappyPaci 100% Silicone Pacifier has a contoured butterfly-shaped shield that curves from nose and cheeks. Other pacifier models have nipples and shields that are the same no matter which way you turn them. That saves a parent from having to flip the binky if the baby puts the pacifier in her mouth upside down.

Check to see if the pacifier has any recommendations from specialists in the industry. Philips Avent Soothie Pacifier, for instance, is not only the pacifier of choice among 2,000 U.S. hospitals, but its design also adheres to the American Academy of Pediatrics guidelines for newborns. That means parents can feel confident when choosing this brand.

Finally, consider any extras that the pacifier may offer. Do the binkies come in a variety of colors or do they have fun animals or recognizable characters on the front of their shields? There are pacifiers that actually light up at night, which is helpful for parents in the event that the baby drops the binky. Parents don’t want to turn on the lights to hunt for the pacifier and risk waking up their sleeping baby.

The Pacifier Buying Guide

  • There are a few different ways to clean and sterilize your infant’s pacifier. You can soak it in a solution that contains 1/2 cup of water and 1/2 cup of vinegar. Another option is to boil a cup of water in the microwave or on the stovetop and let the binky soak in it for about 4 to 5 minutes. Always rinse the pacifier off after cleaning, and make sure it is back to room temperature before giving it to your little one.
  • Giving your baby a pacifier during naps and at bedtime lowers the risk of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) by more than 50 percent.
  • Many toddlers give up pacifiers on their own between the ages of two and four. Since the risk of developing dental problems increases in older children who use binkies, this is a good time to start helping your child wean from the pacifier if he or she has a hard time giving it up on their own.
  • Always check pacifiers for wear, as they tend to last just a few months before becoming torn or scratched. If the pacifier isn’t made using a one-piece construction, the nipple may even detach. Once the nipples become worn enough to break off, it poses a choking risk to your baby. It’s best to toss the pacifier and purchase a new one.
  • When comparing pacifier prices, you’ll need to look at how many pacifiers are in each pack.
