How do I choose the right dummy for my baby?

A dummy is an essential baby accessory! They'll be your best ally in calming or soothing your little one and meeting all his sucking needs. At Bebe2Luxe, you'll find a range of ergonomic models and nibbling teats!


Select the dummy size according to baby's age

Your toddler's teat should be chosen according to his age to avoid any deformation of the palate. You'll find this information on the product sheets for our baby accessories. There are three main categories of soother: the newborn soother (from birth to 6 months), the first age soother (from 6 months to 18 months) and the second age soother (from 18 months to 36 months). For example, our nibblers come in three sizes (S, M or L) and are suitable for all babies from 4 to 12 months. 


Choose a quality material

There are two materials for soothers in the world of childcare: silicone and rubber. At Bebe2Luxe, we prefer silicone accessories because of the many advantages this material has to offer. It is resistant and very robust. The risk of allergy is lower than with rubber teats. Its transparency is ideal for checking the condition of the nibble or classic teat and observing the slightest hole, however small. However, we recommend that you replace your child's teat every month and as soon as you notice the slightest deterioration.

Rubber, on the other hand, is a natural material appreciated for its flexibility. Less robust than silicone, it also gives off a slight odour that can be unpleasant for baby.

Take into account the shape of the teat

Teats are renowned for their wide variety. The choice of shape is important for baby's comfort. The nibbling teat is perfect from the age of 4 months and during the period of dietary diversification. Its unique shape allows you to insert food (fruit, vegetables, biscuits) in complete safety, so that your dear little blonde head can taste new foods gently.

The physiological teat is highly recommended for breastfed babies, as its tip is round and flattened on both sides. This is reminiscent of the shape of mum's breast and reassures your toddler. Anatomical teats, on the other hand, can only be used in one direction. Its tip is rounded at the top and not at the bottom, to fit your child's mouth.


Think of the nibbling dummy!

As explained above, the nibbler teat will delight your baby as soon as he enters the period of dietary diversification. Clever and comfortable, it lets you introduce your baby to delicious foods in complete safety. Its cap is easy to open and close, and is extremely hygienic. Our pack of two BABYFRUIT nibbles is made from BPA- and PVC-free food-grade silicone: they won't retain odours and are easy to clean.

All our advice will help you find the dummy you need for your baby!
