These are made by the same manufacturer that makes the green pacifiers hospitals give to newborns. It's nice to have an option to the green and goodness knows you'll need more than one binkie! If you don't know about Soothie®, these pacifiers are made to be most like Mom's nipple.
If you buy these, or just have the hospital-issued one, you'll definitely want the Booginhead BinkieGrip made to hang on to these binkies (as well as any other binkie and comes in an array of patterns!) Booginhead Pacifier Holder, Blue Green Stripe
