A favorite for both moms and babies for over forty years, the BIBS natural rubber baby pacifier allows your child to self-soothe by exercising their instinctive sucking reflex in the most natural way possible.
The perfect addition to any diaper bag! Why choose BIBS pacifiers? These natural rubber latex pacifiers are made of the highest quality materials and are 100% free of BPA, PVC, and phthalates. BIBS pacifiers stand out from the rest with their natural rubber material and the shape of the lightweight plastic shield. The cherry-shaped nipple and lightweight shield are designed to imitate the shape of a mother's breast. Moms may know the challenge breastfeeding can be, so this design is perfect to mitigate concerns of nipple confusion. Another bonus BIBS pacifiers have is the wide range of trendy colors they come in to suit your little one! They are pacifiers designed for the parents as well as the baby.
Care Instructions for BIBS Pacifiers
Ensure proper sterilization of each pacifier before use. Boil water and carefully pour it over the pacifiers, allowing them to soak for approximately 5 minutes. Afterward, lift the pacifiers and allow them to air-dry. If the pacifier nipples retain water, simply squeeze them to drain any excess liquid, then set them aside to cool and dry for approximately 3-4 hours. Please note that due to the natural rubber composition of the pacifiers, the nipples may expand with use.
TIP: When the child is over 3 months old, you can also rinse the pacifier by placing them in a sieve and pouring them with boiling water. This method is partly faster and partly avoids water collecting inside the nipple of the pacifier.
Caution! We often receive inquiries from parents who have followed the National Board of Health's recommendation to cook the pacifier for 5 minutes before first use and daily afterward. The result is broken pacifiers. DO NOT COOK. They 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 pacifier's durability.
How often should I clean my Bibs Pacifier?
The frequency of cleaning natural rubber pacifiers depends on the age of the child. For younger children, it is more important to protect the pacifier from bacteria and maintain good pacifier hygiene. This is due, among other things, to the fact that the child's immune system is not yet acquainted with a number of different bacteria and, therefore 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.
0-3 months: The pacifier must be scalded every time it has been on the floor. In addition, the pacifier must be scalded at least once a day.
3+ months: Rinse the pacifier once a day and rinse it under the cold tap if it has been on the floor.
