Offering a little dummy, we solve several problems at once. We are satisfied with his sucking reflex – he will still suck, but only a finger or a cam, which is much worse in terms of developing the right bite.
We console him if he has a pain. We help him fall asleep if he is too over-excited. We close his mouth for a walk, because to swallow the frosty air is not the most useful thing.
But this does not mean that the dummy is a panacea for all ills! It is important to remember that we give it to the baby so that he feels better, and not at all to help himself.
In addition, for a newborn who eats breast milk, a dummy is contraindicated for at least the first two to three weeks while he learns to get food.
So, if you have decided to use a dummy (of course, only as needed), you have to take another difficult step – to make a purchase.
Shape Pacifiers are round, oval, drop-shaped and orthodontic. Small, drop-shaped soothers are ideal for newborns. Round and oval pacifiers are timeless classics, they are loved by children.
Dummies of a special orthodontic shape are designed taking into account the shape of the baby’s sky and sucking mechanism, they help him to form the correct bite. Details Besides the nipple itself, the pacifier has a disk and a ring. It is important that all these components are firmly interconnected or that the soother is a solid construction, otherwise the baby will be able to disassemble it and choke.
The disk of the pacifier should have a cutout for the nose and hole so that the little one can breathe freely.
Material Today dummies are made from high quality latex and silicone. Latex – a soft and short-lived material.
For this reason, latex soothers must be constantly checked to see if they are torn. Their service life is small – 2-3 weeks. And yet: in some children, latex causes allergies.
Silicone is a hard and durable material. Such a dummy will be your faithful assistant for 4-6 weeks.
Just remember that because of its hardness, silicone nipples should not be given to babies who are teething, because they can prevent the latter from growing properly.
So that the dummy serves the child faithfully:
- do not hang it by the rope around the child’s neck (use a special chain with a clip);
- buy dummies of the right size: there are “models” for babies from 0 to 3 months, babies 3–6 months and 6–12 months;
- sterilize them for at least 3 minutes;
- do not hold soothers near heaters;
- store them in a special container.
