How to Buy a Pacifier for your Baby

If you have decided to buy a pacifier for your little one, here are some important tips that you need to remember:

  • Research for the correct pacifier size that your baby is going to need with respect to age. Pacifiers usually occur in the range of 0-6 months and 6+ months. If the pacifier is large, it becomes uncomfortable for the baby while a smaller size may result in choking hazards.
  • Study the various pacifier brands available in the market and try out 2 to 3 different brands so as to know which one suits the best. Opt for different designs and select the one that is safe and convenient for the baby.
  • Once you narrow down your search to specific brands, observe the design of the pacifier and shape and size of the nipples. You can opt for a BPA free nipple that is extremely safe for the baby. BPA Bisphenol-A is a synthetic compound that is found in plastics and is supposed to be risk posing. In other cases, prefer the silicone nipples. Avoid plastics and also check out for latex allergies. The pacifier shield should be broad but it must also provide sufficient breathing space to your baby.


  • Strictly avoid pacifiers that may pose any type of choking hazard.
  • Examine the pacifier and nipple intermittently. If there is any discoloration or wear out, discard the pacifier immediately. In any case replace pacifiers frequently.
  • Keep the pacifier regularly to avoid infections.
  • Pacifiers are many a times not recommended as they may interfere with breast feeding.
  • Avoid using bottle nipples as pacifiers as it results in choking hazards.
