One of the safest and most hygienic dummies on the market! The Natural Rubber Soother Rounded Dummy is available in three different sizes to grow with your bub:
Small 0-3 months
Medium 3-6 months
Large 6 months +
The round shape tends to work well for breast-fed babies because the tongue is positioned under the nipple as it is during breast-feeding, which helps prevent nipple confusion. About 80% of babies tend to move soothers around in their mouths, so the position of the round dummy can never end up around the wrong way. This one-piece design eliminates places where bacteria can hide, and the larger shield touches the baby's nose, providing closer simulation to breastfeeding.
Comes packed in a durable clear medical-grade polymer case offering a clean environment for dummies and teethers. Includes a flexible handle to attach to a pram, handbag or nappy-bag.
Made with 100% sustainable, Natural Rubber from the Hevea Brasiliensis tree.
Made from 100% Natural Rubber from the sap of a Hevea Brasiliensis tree, grown in Malaysia.

How to use
Before first use:
Before using your Natural Rubber Soother, please sterilise by immersing in boiling water for 5 minutes, then remove from the water & allow to cool. This will remove the oily film that naturally occurs on the rubber. Never allow to cool in the water.
Simply wash in warm water with mild liquid soap. If extra sterilisation is required, place the dummy in a strainer and pour boiling water over the top. Do not sterilise in a bottle steriliser, wash in a dishwasher or leave in boiling water after the first clean.
You should always inspect the dummy carefully before each use, especially when your child has teeth. Throw it away at the first sign of damage. Being Natural Rubber, your product will eventually turn brown and feel sticky to touch - this is when it should be replaced.
A cord or ribbon attached to a dummy poses a strangulation hazard, especially when attached to your child's clothes so best to use the dummy on its own if unsupervised.
How often should I replace my soother?
Natural Rubber Soothers should be replaced every 8-12 weeks (depending on frequency of use) with the age-appropriate size. Provided you carefully inspect the dummy before each use (especially when your child has teeth) there is no harm in using it for a longer period of time, however you'll notice the rubber get darker and possibly sticky, which a sign it's time to replace the dummy.
