Before we get started, let’s look at some of the main features you consider when choosing the right pacifier. What is the best pacifier for breastfed babies? Stay tuned to find out.
BPA Free - BPA stands for bisphenol A. It’s a chemical that’s been used since the 1960s in some plastics. It’s also been shown to have possible detrimental health effects so obviously, you want to keep this away from your baby.
Material - Silicone is by far the most popular material for pacifiers to be made out of. In fact, 9 out of 10 of our picks are made of silicone. What about the tenth one? It’s actually made of organic rubber.
Age Range - Pacifiers come in different age ranges because babies grow so fast. A newborn’s mouth is much smaller than a 6 month olds which is much smaller than an 18 month olds. They’re sized accordingly.
Colors - This is one of those things that doesn’t really affect the quality of the product much but is really nice to have. This is especially true when it comes to any and all things baby whether it’s blue, pink, or yellow.
1-Piece Design - The biggest benefit of having a pacifier with a 1-piece design is that there are no little nooks and crannies where bacteria and other gross stuff can hide. They’re much easier to sterilize and clean, too.
Set Pieces - Some of these are individual pacifiers and some come in sets of 2 or 3. Something we really like is that most of the time, the sets have color coordinating designs and patterns. Which is super cute.
