Comfort is a pretty personal thing, so we’ve created a range of soothers to suit every baby’s needs. If you’re feeling a little overwhelmed by choice, this guide will talk you through how to choose the best soother for your little one.
First, let’s cover a few comfort essentials. Comfort might be personal, but we think there are some non-negotiables. All our soothers are BPA free, orthodontic and support the natural palate development of your baby —just in case you were wondering!
Get personal about comfort
Now, let’s get more personal. To narrow down your search for the best soother you’ll need to consider a few things:
Your baby’s age
Your baby’s skin sensitivity
Your baby’s preference
Find the right type of comfort
So now that you know what to consider, we’ll explain how each of our four soothers stack up against one another.
Think of the Mini as, well, exactly that: mini. When you’re a newborn everything feels a bit oversized, so we created a soother with an extra small and lightweight shield that’s designed not to touch the nose.
Sizes: 0-2 months
Best soother for: Parents who want a great all-rounder for their newborn
Soothie is our one-piece soother made of medical-grade silicone. Unlike a regular soother, Soothie allows you to offer the comfort of your finger at the same time via a hole on the front.
Sizes: 0-3+ months
Best soother for: Parents who want a medical grade soother that offers extra comfort for their newborn.
Think of the Classic soother like an everyday all-rounder. Because the need for comfort can strike day or night, we also create easy to find glow-in-the-dark designs.
Sizes: 0-6, 6-18 months
Best soother for: Parents who want a high quality all-rounder for day and night.
Some skin can be a little more sensitive than others. Unlike a regular shield, our Freeflow soother has larger air holes to help keep your baby’s skin dry and comfortable.
Sizes: 0-6, 6-18 and 18m+ months
Best soother for: Parents who want a soother that’s gentle on skin.
Ultra soft soother
Does your little one love a delicate touch? The ultra soft soother is designed with a flexible and soft shield, and extra airflow to help avoid marks and skin irritation.
Sizes: 0-6, 6-18 months
Best soother for: Parents who want a soother that’s extra delicate on sensitive skin.
Once you’ve chosen a soother type based on your baby’s needs, it’s then a case of choosing the right size and a design. Each of our soothers is sized according to age, and of course, the design is up to you!
