Best of Baby Winner for Top Pacifier
The desire to soothe a crying or fussy baby is universal, which is why so many parents turn to pacifiers. They’ve been used for decades, and most of the time they get the job done. They help comfort baby, engaging their natural desire to suck. They can also help your little one learn how to manage their feelings by making them feel calm and secure. But best of all, when used at naptime and nighttime, a pacifier can lower baby’s risk of SIDS. Finding the right one is the trick. Dr. Brown’s HappyPaci is a safe, one-piece construction silicone sucker. The nipple mimics the shape of the Dr. Brown’s bottle nipple, making it familiar to babies already using the bottles, while the butterfly shape contours away from baby’s mouth, ensuring good airflow and less slippage—because the key to quiet is keeping the paci in place.
• Lightweight and made from 100 percent silicone, this pacifier meets the AAP’s suggested one-piece construction, something many other pacifiers do not
• A contoured, butterfly-shaped shield curves away from baby’s face, leaving plenty of room for chubby baby cheeks
• The pacifier’s nipple shape mimics that of the Dr. Brown’s bottle nipple, perfect for babies already accustomed to the bottles; it also helps the paci stay securely in baby’s mouth
• It’s super-easy to clean—it’s even dishwasher- and sterilizer-safe—and comes in pink and blue hues
