Natural Rubber Soother
These soothers are the round style. Yes, you get 2, and yes it's cheaper than buying just 1!
The ROUND Natural Rubber Soother - The round style tends to work better for breast-fed babies because the tongue is positioned under the nipple as it is during breast-feeding, which helps prevent nipple confusion.
The ORTHODONTIC Natural Rubber Soother - Having a flatter teat helps to prevent future dental problems as this allows the baby to hold their jaw in the correct position when using the dummy.
Natural Rubber Soothers are made up of a single piece of natural rubber which means they don’t have joints (to avoid the teat separating that can lead to choking) so they are extremely durable. Compared to its silicone counterpart that can rapidly tear once the surface has been damaged and can become a dangerous choking hazard, the Natural Rubber Soother is a safer option.
Unlike some dummies on the market the Natural Rubber Soother shield does not leave marks on baby’s faces due to the high level of elasticity of natural rubber. The size of the shield also prevents babies from squeezing the soother into their mouths.
Many parents are now looking for toys and soothers that do not contain phthalates, which is typically used to soften plastics such as what's found in regular soothers. What do phthalates do? Phthalates disrupt the endocrine system. This means that they mimic and interfere with hormones. This interference in our body can cause cancer, birth defects, developmental problems, and tumours. They can also damage the liver, lungs, kidney and reproductive systems. The sooner you get this chemical away from your new born and go for a more natural option, the better!
