Natural Pacifiers

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Do any of you know any good all-natural pacifiers? I have been looking on the internet and the only good ones I see are Natursutton pacifiers. Has anyone used these or know of any other good ones?
Dh and I do not want to give dd a pacifier but she really calms down when she sucks. We have never given her one-just our knuckles or finger so far. We would NEVER give her one made of yucky ingredients though so I am just weighing my (natural) options.
The Natursutten pacifiers are made from pure, natural rubber from the tree Hevea brasiliensi. Also there is no artificial color,no chemicals softener; parabens, PVC, phtalates and BPA (bisphenol-A) free.

That could have been worded differently -- it made me feel bad.

Isn't silicone supposed to be okay?

Yup, silicone is a safe material. There are a few pacifiers that are completely or almost completely made of silicone. I got the Gerber NaturalFlex as everything that touches baby is silicone, and I like the sucking motion they give (as opposed to ones that don't move when sucked on).

I've never heard of these natural rubber ones, though. Silicone has some benefits over rubber (including allergies to rubber), but both are likely good options, all else aside.

I am SO SORRY. I did not mean to make you feel bad. Dh and I are first time parents and want to be very careful about what choices we make-even little ones. I do not judge anyone else and also do not know that much about most of the pacifiers sold in stores. That is why I started this thread. After the recent "China" scare we are researching everything that she will touch to make sure it is safe and contains no lead.
Sorry again.
October 26th is a special day
