When your baby gets teeth, it can be hard to find a pacifier that they won’t just chew up, which can be a choking hazard. For older babies, you need something that is going to be bigger and stronger, i.e. something they can’t chew up. Fortunately, there are a few different pacifiers on the market that are strong enough for your child to suck on while they have teeth that won’t tear apart. Please find out more information about Pacifiers & Baby's Teeth in this blog.

This leaves extra room for the baby's tongue, reducing pressure on the gums and teeth. The Playtex OrthoPro is available with either a latex or a silicone nipple, both BPA-free. Silicone nipples are more durable than latex and easier to clean. However, latex nipples are softer and more flexible. The OrthoPro has vents on the mouth shield to maximize airflow and prevent skin irritation. Parents can purchase models based on their baby's age.

Nuby designed the Natural Flex orthodontic pacifier to move just like a mother's breast. This increases the chance of breastfed babies accepting the pacifier.

Natural Flex pacifiers also include nubs that help teething babies by gently massaging their gums, and the mouth shield allows air flow. Nuby Natural Flex orthodontic pacifiers are available in two sizes: one suitable for babies aged 0 to 6 months, and another for those over 6 months in age.
Keeping The Binky Safe
While having the binky may be a lifesaver, you should also have something that is going to keep the bink safe from floors. The Nissi & Jireh 4-in-1 or 5 in 1 Detachable pacifier holder features a very visually stimulating plush animal for your baby to play with while they safely suck away on their binky. The binky holder also doubles as a teether, so they can use it is more than one way. There’s also storage inside the stomach of the plush animal for safe keeping of another bink.
