Best Pacifier: Philips Avent Soothie

There's a reason (several, actually) you see these green pacifiers everywhere.

Pacifiers can be a godsend in terms of teaching babies to self soothe and lowering the risk of SIDS, but you don’t want it to cause dental or orthodontic issues down the road. The Philips Avent Soothie delivers the former—without any worries about the latter.

What we love

  • The Soothies is a favorite among hospitals, pediatricians and parents for its safe, one-piece design that meets the AAP’s recommendations for newborns
  • The nipple shape fits most babies’ mouths comfortably while still allowing for normal oral development
  • Boil them, microwave them, toss them in the dishwasher—there’s no shortage of ways to clean and sterilize these pacis

Summary

This pacifier calms baby, is easily cleaned and causes no concern over dental development—making the Soothie a triple threat.
