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?<br>
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.<br>
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.

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).<br><br>
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.<br>
Sorry again.<br>
