As first time parents, we were given the choice to use a pacifier in the hospital. After much debate b/c of breastfeeeding, we decided to let our son have it b/c our son was just very inconsolable while my milk came in. Nothing worked to soothe him not shooshing, not swaddling, not anything and not even the hospital nurses could soothe him. This was a godsend! It did not contribute to any breastfeeding problems and has been the best thing to calm our son. He is now 3 months old and only wants it when is very stressed so he is not dependent upon it all the time, did not have nipple confusion and had learned to self soothe for the most part now by sucking his fingers. It is really a great product and I recommend it to anyone wanting to use a pacifier for their baby. Our son refuses to use any other brand or type but the Soothie for the sucking action is calming to him like when he is feeding.

The reason that these pacifiers are advertised as being for children WITHOUT teeth has to do with the fact that they are made of soft plastic that can be chewed through and that babies with teeth (3 months and up) can possibly chew through them and maybe swallow the pieces. The company that manufactires them makes a sturdier rubber version that cannot be bitten through, called the Super Soothie. However, i tried buying them for my daughter and she HATED them and ONLY uses the Soothie (has never taken any other pacifier.) She LOVES them. She is 2 now so she is ready to gradually wean from the pacifier altogether. And yes she has chewed a hole in one or two of them but no harm done! But thats the reason why the company states that about the teeth. they Are NOT considered bad for your child's teeth and will be comparable in that way to any other pacifier out there.

[...] Is the website of the manufacturer.

My newborn had jaundice within 24 hours of birth... so he was under UV lights in the hospital. He had to wear an eyemask (not to mention couldn't be held very often!), and was NOT happy about it. The hospital staff gave us one of these pacifiers to use.

While it seemed to soothe him (at least, he wasn't screaming anymore), I did notice a change in his latch. We had had no problems breastfeeding (he latched on 15 minutes after being born!), but after using this pacifier we had a meeting or two with the lactation consultant.

We switched to using one of the orthodontic pacifiers (the Born Free ones, specifically) and later, the MAM orthodontic type; while these impacted his latch less, there was still a difference. We aren't using pacifiers right now because of this (he's 2 weeks old). When we were using them, he could still breastfeed okay, but it was more uncomfortable and took longer to get him latched... and with a hungry baby, every second seems to count. :)

Moral of the story: wait until "breastfeeding is well-established" before giving this to your baby.

JUST like the ones they give you in the hospital (but they never give you more than one so if you lose it you're out of luck!) but in cute colors! Highly reccomended!

We actually got about 8 of these binkeys between shower gifts and what he was given in the NICU and we loved having all of them.

Be careful when you order the Newborn Pacifiers by Soothie from Parents Favorite on Amazon Market. I paid for and ordered the Soothie brand. Instead, they sent me the Avent Soothie pacifier. I could have purchased these at Walmart and not paid for shipping!

My son is 6 months old. He was/is a colic and reflux baby, and these pacifiers saved us from losing our minds (and gave baby a way to relieve tension from discomfort). I tried MAM pacifiers (we got them in the hospital) but the Soothie was his favorite. We have around 10 of them and I can't leave my house without them. If you're wondering of they'll work for you or if you're at your wit's end, try these!! We are soooooo happy we did!!

This pacifier may seem big and bulky to some, but it is the absolute best for baby's mouth and teeth and my son loves it. I plan on buying the teething pacifier soon as well.

We weren't sure at first if we were going to use pacifiers. I didn't want to have the problem of having to keep putting it back in for him to sleep. However, we found a happy medium in using them. They really are a great transitional piece. What I mean is if you are in the car and he's hungry and you need to buy 10-15 minutes to get home to nurse, letting him suck on the pacifier will keep him from a total meltdown. It also is invaluable if he has missed his sleep window and needs the soothing of sucking to settle him down. We tried the other kind that has the wider rubber piece, but I found it would make him gag. I bought these at the grocery store late one night when we were desperate and couldn't find our others and this one was hospital recommended. They are a good pacifier. A few drawbacks to me is the little handle can be awkward and the breathing holes aren't very big. Having said that he had a easier time using this one than any others and the nipple wasn't too big for him as a newborn. Now we only use it occasionally when we need to buy some time to get home and he's hungry or tired. Be careful not to keep these lying around where pets can get to them, because we have found our cats love to chew on these!

The hospital where was son was born uses these pacifiers. At first I was worried about nipple confusion and concerned that the hospital gave him a pacifier without asking me. Using the Soothie pacifiers he has had no problem with nipple confusion.
He LOVES these things. We were given several different types of pacifiers as gifts at my shower and when we got home we gave them to him. He spit every one of them out immediately. The only pacifier he would use was this pacifier.
It's shaped the same as a nipple from a bottle and I think that shape is much easier for him to suck on.
Like I said, I was initially worried about nipple confusion, but there are some times when he just wants to suck, but isn't hungry. Without the Soothie pacifiers we wouldn't have anything to satisfy that.
