We have several of Avent's 'regular' pacifiers at home, which my daughter likes and uses on a regular basis. When I purchased these, the glow-in-the-dark feature was not important to me, as I really didn't expect the glow to last for long (c'mon folks, it's glow-in-the-dark - the technology hasn't improved much since 1985...haha). As other reviewers have noted, the glow really does not last too long after the lights go out.

I'm sure most parents who use pacifiers for their babies would agree with me on this - we have pacifiers floating all over the house, but it seems whenever you want one, none can be found. For this reason, I did like the nighttime pattern on the pacifiers; it helps my husband and I to remember that those are the 'bedtime binkies' and when we find them around the house, to put them back into her bed, so we *always* have a pacifier for bedtime. Yes, the base of the pacifier is larger than Avent's 'regular' design, but I find that the larger base prevents the pacifiers from falling through the slats on my daughter's crib, which happens to the 'regular' design frequently. Perfect if she wakes in the night; she can find her binkie and replace it herself - which she does. I'm really pleased with these, as I have been with all Avent products I have purchased.

Just stick with the regulars -- this night time one loses any "glow" so quickly that it's no different than a regular one. I love the avent pacifiers otherwise.

Neither of my kids are super pacifier dependent, but I've used the Philips AVENT with both for a few reasons:

1. There is no "right side up." Because when that baby needs a pacifier, you aren't taking the time to figure that out. These eliminate any screw-up.

2. Handy carrying snap-on cover. I'm not into sanitizing everything every two seconds (hell, I'm not adverse to letting the dog clean the paci in a pinch), but it's nice to pop the cover on to reduce purse lint when I take it out. I do have more cases than pacifiers now despite my best efforts, but still. Very convenient and keeps them somewhat sanitary.

3. Maybe it's just my good luck, but neither of my kids have had any problems with pacifier/breastfeeding confusion or complication, and I've used these exclusively. Despite being told I would ruin all chances of successful bfing if I used a paci before 4 weeks, I caved within days (it was a paci, or a permanently pruny finger), and never had any issues.

4. The glow in the dark ring is cool. First, it looks cool to see your kid with what looks like a glowing nose ring. But it actually is handy to help find the darn thing in the dark when it falls behind the crib.

I only bought this pacifier because it was supposed to glow in the dark and I thought it would make it easier to find it when my daughter dropped it in the middle of the night. It does glow a little, but not for long. After a few minutes in the dark the glow disappears and in the middle of the night when you most need it it is long time gone.
It also has a different shape than the regular Avent. It is not symmetrical and has an up and down side. So, in addition to be as hard to find as a regular pacifier, I still have to figure out in the dark which side is up and down. Conclusion: not really good for nighttime.
In a side note, Avents are good quality pacifiers and this one is not different. Better as a day pacifier though.

I've used Avent pacifiers for my son since he was born. He's 2 now and uses it only when he sleeps at night. They are sturdy, and work well, and last a very long time. His last one lasted over a year and half, until he finally ripped it with his teeth. Comes in a pack of two, so I predict this purchase will last us until he grows out of it! This one glows in the dark (the round part) although I've never really tried looking for it in the dark. I recommend this product to any parent who needs a good pacifier for their child.

It's a great pacifier, my daughter like it. Howewer, if you want to buy it because it glows at night, just buy the regulars, the glow doesn't last more than 6 minutes.

5 stars because it's an Avent pacifier and my son is obsessed with them... 3 stars because it doesn't glow in the dark longer than 10 minutes = median of 4 stars.

My son loves his Avent pacifiers. I hate being woken up in the middle of the night because he has lots his pacifier under his pillow, in his blanket, etc. I thought that this pacifier would make finding the lost paci in the middle of the night a little easier. That is certainly not the case. This paci does glow when you first turn the lights out but with anything that is glow in the dark, it's not going to last too long.

I had realistic expectations when I bought these pacifiers. I didn't really think that they would glow all night long... I was just kinda hoping! The win is that he loves this paci as much as any of his other Avent pacis so it still gets used.

These pacifiers are life-savers at night.
The glow-in-the-dark bit does not last that long but it does last a few hours if you've had them in a good light beforehand - or about 30 minutes if you have just had the light on for a few minutes.
That makes them excellent at night as my daughter can find them in her cot and settle herself.
Also they do shine and reflect the night-light a bit better than the non-night pacifiers and so even when the glow-in-the-dark has worn off, they are still easier to find than other pacifiers.

Easy to clean too - although slight con is that every few days you have to clean out around the plastic bit as dust and other gunk tends to collect there.

My daughter loves them and they keep her happy - how can you get more positive feedback?!

I usually love Avent pacifiers as so do my six month old twins but these are very unimpressive.

Cons:

1. The glow only lasts for a few minutes which pretty much only makes it useful in the first five minutes after the light is turned off. Does no good in the middle of the night when I need it most. I have to hunt for it like any other pacifier.

2. There is a right side up and right side down. That is irritating and takes more time and allows more time for them to wake up. Also my girls are starting to put their own pacifier in so when it's wrong side up they get a little irritated.

Pros:

1. It's avent and well made.

2. It glows in the dark for at least a little bit.

Our twins love these pacifiers. The "handle" is the part that glows in the dark (not the whole pacifier). This feature makes it easy to find the pacifier if it falls out within the first hour of putting the babies to bed. My only complaint about the pacifiers is that there's a nose cutout only on "the top", but the babies are old enough to put the pacifiers in and take them out on their own, and the babies don't know there's a "right way".... so the pacifiers end up "upside-down" about half the time and slightly poking them in the nose.

Other than that- the pacifiers are great. We boil them on occasion to sterilize.
