FAQ Pacifiers

When you buy a Natursutten® pacifier, you and your baby avoid:

– Allergy-causing substances
– Artificial colors
– Cancer-causing substances
– Hormone-disturbing substances
– Chemical softeners
– Parabens, PVC, and phthalates

At the same time, your get a product that is made from 100% natural material, better for the enoviroment and for your baby.

Original refers to the shape of the shield and is the circular rounded shield. It’s opposite is the Butterfly shield with a little cut-out below baby’s nose.
Natursutten® Original: Gently touches babys nose more closely simulating breastfeeding.
Natursutten® Butterfly: Has the cut-out that leaves more room for babys nose.
Both shapes are available with Orthodontic and Rounded nipple and in sizes S (0-6mth), M (6-12mth) and L (12 mth up)

The relatively large shield on Natursutten® Original is designed to gently touch your baby’s nose and give her the same secure feeling she experiences during breastfeeding.

For those who prefer another shape, we manufacture the Natursutten® Butterfly pacifier. This model leaves room for your babys nose.

The choice between Orthodontic and Rounded nipple for your Natursutten® pacifier is based on babys preference and is difficult to say beforehand. Some babies take what ever you give them, some are more choosy and needs to try both shapes in order to find the best match.
Both models are available with Original and Butterfly shield and in sizes S (0-6mth), M (6-12mth) and L (12 mth up)

All Natursutten® pacifiers are available in three sizes S (0-6mth), M (6-12mth) and L (12 mth up)
These sizes are guiding only. Some babies prefer a larger and some a smaller nipple.

Natursutten is a one-piece pacifier which is more hygienic because the single-piece construction means there are no joints or cracks where dirt and bacteria can accumulate. Standard pacifiers usually have a crevice where the nipple and shield come together, which is difficult to keep clean.
Other pacifiers even have an open access to the nipple that will gather a lot of dirt and bacteria. This is not the case with Natursutten® pacifiers.

It’s very simple.
Before the first use, just sterilize by immersing the pacifier in copious amounts of boiling water for five minutes. Make sure the pacifier doesn’t touch the bottom of the pot.
Afterwards, just clean on a daily basis, by washing it in mild liquid soap under running water — if it needs an extra thorough clean place it in a strainer and sterilize it by pouring boiling water over it. But don’t boil it again and never leave it to cool down in boiling water.

It is not dishwasher-safe. And we don’t recommend the use of sterilizers.

Natursutten® must be replaced every 6 – 8 weeks.
It’s important to inspect the pacifier carefully before each use and throw away at the first signs of damage or weakness.
The pacifier will get darker and somewhat sticky if you use it for too long.
Should the pacifier shows signs of deterioration (peeling) it must be replaced immediately.

Natursutten® pacifiers are made from 100% pure natural rubber sap (latex) from the tree Hevea brasiliensis.

Yes, and no. The protein that on rare occasions can provoke a latex allergy is removed from the rubber sap used for Natursutten® pacifiers. This means that there is no risk of provoking a latex allergy when using them. That said, we would never recommend using a product made from natural rubber for a child with a diagnosed latex allergy.

All Natursutten® pacifiers are EN 1400-certified, which means the product complies with the European Union (EU) directive for this product area—in terms of safety, health and environment. They are continuously tested by ConsumerLab, an independent, distinguished laboratory in Denmark. The products are also tested in the U.S. and comply with all standards established by the CPSIA. In Australia where they comply with australian and New Zealand standards, and towards strict Japanese standards too.

A Natursutten® pacifier will get darker over time, because its 100% natural rubber contains no chemicals or anti-oxidants to keep it light orange. This is perfectly natural and to be expected.

A Natursutten® pacifier is made from organic material and as such it will look different from harvest to harvest. Just like no to apples are never identical.
Sometimes they are light yellow, sometimes dark amber. Sometimes transparent and sometimes more milky. It’s all perfectly normal and intended. We don’t add chemicals to make them look the same.

When caring for your Natursutten® pacifier it’s important to remove it from the boiling water after initial sterilising. And not to boil it again!
The ‘whitish’ layer on the surface is scale from your water that attach to the pacifier. It’s harmless but makes the pacifier look dull.
It will disappear again after a few washes under running water and with the use of a mild liquid soap.

The only thing that happens, if you leave the pacifier to cool down in the boiling water is that scale from your water will attach to the pacifier and making it look dull. It’s harmless  and it will disappear again, but it looks dull.
Another thing; don’t boil the pacifier again after initial sterilising. It will age and become sticky too quickly if you do.
In daily care just wash it under running water and use a mild liquid soap. If it needs an extra thorough rinse place it in a strainer and pour boiling water over it.

Nothing has changed.

But the thing is; with ‘heavy’ use, the Natursutten nipple will expand.
If a size S pacifier has used for too long or too heavily it will expand and be larger than a new size S (but smaller than a new size M)

We always recommend using at least two pacifiers at once and alternating them. Leaving them to dry out between uses. And remember that a Natursutten® pacifier must be replaced every 6-8 weeks.

Natursutten is a completely natural product and does not contain the same levels of stabilising chemicals that conventional pacifiers do, which has the disadvantage that they are less resistant and won’t last forever like conventional pacifiers.
There are some pro’s and con’s to everything, and this is one of the things we have to deal with when manufacturing a 100% natural product and have the overall strict rule that making them completely free from potentially harmfull chemicals.
