Dummies
Parents of newborns and toddlers have at one time resorted to the use of a baby dummy or pacifier when their baby has been unsettled. Binky, dumdum, the baby plug are many affectionate names we call these little sleep saviours! Sucking on a dummy can soothe many babies and like with many things baby-related, it's not always one-size-fits-all. It's about assessing what you need the dummy for and in what circumstances you intend to use it. Will you attempt to give your baby their dummy during night sleep? Or day naps only? These are all great questions to ask yourself before committing to a dummy purchase. We recommend the Haakaa silicone dummy range as they are made from one complete piece of silicone that is soft, safe, and free of harsh chemicals. No more hard plastic parts that trap moisture and leave nasty dummy rashes – the Haakaa dummies are gentle on babies skin, gums, and new baby teeth. Dummies should mimic the shape of a mother’s nipple and be U-shaped in design to promote natural breathing through the nose. Haakaa dummies can also be used as a teething device for babies that need to be soothed from teething pain as you can chill them in the freezer providing added cooling relief to those sore, aching gums! Dummies can be introduced as part of a safe sleep routine just make sure you have a few on hand! Dummy’s come in different sizes to match your baby’s age from Newborn to 6 months of age. The best baby dummy won’t interfere with breastfeeding but help soothe your baby when unsettled and not hungry.
