When my children used pacifiers, 30 years ago, they were not very safe, there was only one size and they were poorly made. I actually had one of these cheap pacifiers come apart in my daughters mouth when she was 2 years old. This was a horrific experience, I literally had to give her the Heimlich maneuver to dislodge it from her throat, I vowed never to use them again. Because I took the pacifier away so abruptly and with her being so attached to it, she ended up being a thumb sucker until at age 12. This was when she had her braces put on to straighten her teeth from sucking her thumb. UGH!! Well those days are over and I’m super excited to share with you today the best of the best when it comes to pacifiers, Difrax!
3 Top Tips On Choosing The Right Pacifier For Your Child.
- Be sure the model you buy is sturdy and cannot possibly come apart with a shield that’s 1 1/2 inches or larger, to stop baby from putting the whole pacifier in their mouth.
- The shield should have ventilation holes to allow air circulation. Without these holes, a baby’s saliva can collect behind the base, causing a skin rash or irritation.
- You have two choices between Silicone & latex Silicone nipples are the sturdier of the two. They also clean more easily and don’t retain odors, but they are not as soft in baby’s mouth as the Latex. Latex is softer and more flexible but you must watch out for any allergic reaction. Should you see something is not right, stop using the latex and call your pediatrician immediately.

I reviewed the Classic model which I really liked because the portion is round with no top or bottom, resembling the nipple, and they’re great for teething too.
