Some babies refuse to take a dummy. That was exactly the case with my second child. No matter what, she wouldn’t agree to put anything that even resembled a pacifier. I tried all existing brands to no avail. I was about to give up (saying to myself, it would be less comfortable for me, but she would survive a ‘pacifier free’ childhood) till a friend recommended the Nanobebe pacifier.
Right from the start, my baby reacted differently compared to all the binkies I have tried before, and so there was room for optimism. It took her a few days, with plenty of ‘encouragement’ that came from me, and she finally agreed to keep it in her mouth. Nanobebe pacifier did what no other brand could do – overcome my baby’s stubbornness and for that, it deserves all the credit in the world.
The Nanobebe pacifier has all the high qualities you will find in other top brands. The silicone it is made of is strong but at the same time flexible and soft. So it will last long while not causing your child to feel uncomfortable putting it in her mouth.
In addition, the silicone is BPA & Phthalate free. BPA (Bisphenol A) is believed to be harmful to the body’s endocrine system. In 2012, the FDA prohibited manufacturers from using BPA in baby bottles. Phthalate is a chemical compound that comes from acid. It is used to make plastic materials more flexible. Researchers claim that like BPA, it has a negative effect on the baby’s endocrine system. Continuous exposure to this material may cause learning disabilities and other cognitive disorders, such as ADHD.
The design of the Nanobebe pacifier is lightweight and ergonomic to fit a baby’s small mouth. The pacifier’s one-piece construction follows the guidelines set by the American Academy of Pediatrics.
But the most important features that distinguishes the Nanobebe pacifier from other widely used brands is its nipple shape which is specially designed to prevent nipple confusion. This is ideal for breastfed babies. I suspect that was the real problem with my baby. Once the problem of nipple confusion was solved, she was much more willing to take a pacifier side by side with breastfeeding.
