review this : eco child natursutten natural pacifier

when i was pregnant last summer, i noticed these natursutten dummies from eco child in the shop 4 kids eco news. shop 4 kids labelled the dummy as being a huge hit with mum's in europe and that they are growing a cult following in australia. and i can see why.

i think you're either a dummy mum or you're not. i am. i wasn't at first, with my first, but my mother threw a dummy in my daughter's mouth at about 3 weeks old to help settle her down one day, and well, i went with it and haven't looked back. so when my second baby arrived, i was a lot more relaxed and knew that more than likely i would have a dummy for her.

we all worry about what's going into our baby's mouth, some things can't be helped, but a dummy can be. the natursutten soothers are made from all natural pure rubber. they are non-toxic, bpa free, phthalate free, have no allergy causing substances, no artificial colours, aswell as also being completely biodegradable and non harmful to the environment. they have no cracks, crevices or joints where bacteria can hide, so they are very hygienic. they definately tick all the right boxes.

pictured above is the orthodontic in size small {0-6 months}. it also comes in sizes medium {6-12 months} and large {12+ months}. the round pictured is in size medium {6-12 months}, it's also available in sizes small and large. what's the difference between the two and which one is right for you?

orthodontic : is better for their teeth - providing it is placed in the right position. if they are placed in your baby's mouth upside down, they can actually do more harm than good.

round : cannot be placed in wrong and are a popular choice recommended by midwives and clinic nurses, especially before baby has teeth. this shape also tends to work better for breast fed babies as their tongue is positioned under the teat as it is during breast feeding and this helps prevent nipple confusion.

the dummy will gradually change to a darker colour during use. this is normal and is your signal that it needs to be replaced. you should generally replace your child's dummy between 6-8 weeks of use.

i've had frankie on the natursutten dummy for two weeks now and i highly recommend them. if your baby has a dummy and it's time to replace it, don't head to big w, jump online and give these ones a try. you can purchase them from eco child {} for $9.96 each.
