From birth babies have a natural sucking reflex. It is not only a vital reflex for the baby to get food but sucking also has a calming effect on the baby, reminding the baby of something safe and familiar in an otherwise foreign world. Sucking both lowers the heart rate, blood pressure, and stress levels and it even has a pain-relieving effect. Because of the calming effect sucking entails, a pacifier can make it easier for the baby to sleep, soothe the baby if it is distraught, and provide security when being upset.
When it comes to the nipple no size or shape is right or wrong because all babies are different. It can be necessary to try out different shapes and sizes to find the perfect fit for your child. Some babies prefer a certain nipple shape, size, or material while others do not have any preferences and will take whatever shape, size, and material you offer. Babies have different preferences, different sucking techniques, and different mouth anatomy. Therefore, we offer different pacifiers that meet all these different needs.
In the BIBS Try-it Collection you get a pacifier from our 4 different categories with a selection of all our nipple types (round, symmetrical and anatomical) and materials (natural rubber latex and silicone). For you and your baby to test and find your preferred BIBS pacifier.
