Is it true that soothers reduce the risk of SIDS?

There is evidence that offering the soother at all sleep times can offer some protection against Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS), especially if the baby is breastfed.2,3 How a soother can reduce the risk of SIDS is still unclear. Safe infant sleep guidelines in various countries support the use of a soother during nap and bedtime in the first 6 months of life and often even up to one year of age. If the soother falls out of the mouth during sleep, you do not need to reinsert it. If your baby refuses the soother, do not force them to take it.3

Two additional measures that can help reduce the risk of SIDS are to lay babies on their back to fall asleep and to avoid putting pillows or stuffed toys in a baby’s bed to prevent smothering or suffocation.3

How does the glow-in-the-dark soother work?

The front knob of the soother contains a non-toxic fluorescent material that glows in the dark. It helps you and your little one to easily find the soother in the dark when they need comforting.

Place the soother for 3 minutes under a lamp or in a sunlit room to recharge it, but not in direct sunlight. The glow-in-the-dark effect should last approximately 8 hours, to reassure your little one through the night.

Is the NIGHT soother safe for my baby?

Yes, the NIGHT soother is safe for your little one. The knob contains a non-toxic fluorescent material allowing it to glow in the dark.

Why do some soothers have a ring while others don’t?

Soothers with a ring are easier for parents and babies to hold onto and handy to use during the day.

Soothers without a ring are suitable for newborns and for falling asleep at any age. In these cases, a ring would probably be bothersome, for instance, if it is flipped up and pressing on your baby’s nose. Not having a ring also avoids the soother from being pulled out of the mouth while actively moving during sleep or due to uncontrolled arm movement.

Can the ink used for printed soothers become a danger?

No, Medela Baby only uses food-safe inks that are completely harmless for babies, even if they happened to scrape them off with their teeth.

How does the ideal soother look?

Requirements for soothers have been recommended by speech-language pathologists. The following features should be incorporated into a soother’s design to help support the natural movement of the mouth muscles. 4

  • Thin neck teat – minimises the space between the upper and lower jaw
  • Flat teat – takes up less space in the mouth allowing for more tongue movement
  • Flexible and elastic teat – allows for additional tongue movement
  • Lightweight – minimises the work of the facial muscles
  • Ergonomically shaped shield – fits the contour of the face and prevent pressure points
What are the SensoPearls™?

At Medela Baby we want our products to make every gesture more gentle, intimate and assured. Baby skin is sensitive and we strive to make all our products gentle to the skin. Sensopearls™ are smooth little nubs on the inside of the shield of all our soothers. They are placed on the top and bottom of the shield to reduce – in addition to the air holes – the risk of redness and irritation on your little one’s delicate skin.

Why do Medela Baby soothers have holes in the shield?

At Medela Baby we want our products to make every gesture more gentle, intimate and assured. Baby skin is sensitive and we strive to make all our products as gentle to your little one’s skin as possible. These holes together with our Sensopearls™ enhance airflow and avoid skin irritation increasing child safety.

Even in the unlikely event that your little one happens to get the whole soother into their mouth, the holes will allow air to flow. It is important not to block these air holes, for instance by attaching cords or ribbons as it might limit airflow.

Is the soother teat shape important?

The shape and features of a soother are very important to help support the oral development of your baby when it is used with purpose and responsibility. Speech-language pathologists recommend that soothers should have a symmetrical shape with a thin shaft and a flat teat, which takes up less space in the mouth allowing for more tongue movement.

Are Medela Baby soothers orthodontic?

All Medela baby soother teats are orthodontic as they have been developed using criteria defined by speech-language pathologists. They have a symmetrical teat and a thin neck.

  • The thin neck teat allows lip contact and minimises the space between a baby’s upper and lower jaw.
  • A flat shaped teat that takes up less space and the flexible silicone allow for increased free movement of the tongue.
What is a symmetrical teat?

Symmetrical teat means the teat has the same shape on the upper and lower parts.
A soother with a symmetrically formed teat is easily accepted, as it supports the natural physiological tongue, mouth and facial muscle movements and the natural palate growth during this period of development.

Does the teat size matter?

Yes. Our soothers are designed to fit the developmental growth stages of your baby. Your little one is growing the fastest in the first few years of life. The soother teat length and width of the different sizes fit the average growth measurements of the oral cavity during these developmental periods: newborn <2 months, 0–6 months, 6–18 months and 18+ months.

The soother should fulfill the purpose of calming your baby. When the teat size fits properly in the mouth, is not too big and not too small, this provides better support for the natural suckling movements.

What does ergonomic shield mean?

The Medela Baby shields were developed with an ergonomist and designed to fit children’s faces, preventing pressure points under the nose or on the chin and cheeks. Our angel-wing-shape design does not interfere with babies’ breathing and facilitates smelling the comforting scent of the mother. Its light weight minimises additional stress on the orofacial muscles.

The air holes and Sensopearls™ allow for movement of air around the face which helps reduce possibile redness or skin irritations.

Are Medela Baby soothers made without BPA?

Medela Baby soothers are made without BPA.
Bisphenol A (BPA) is a chemical component of polycarbonate (PC) plastics and is used in packaging and containers that come in contact with food products. It can also be used in the linings of canned foods and beverages and metal jar lids. Under certain circumstances, it can leach from the material.

This can occur when the container is used for heating food in the microwave, keeping food warm over long periods or when there are cracks, scratches, or damage to the material surface.

There are concerns about the influence of BPA on the hormone balance of infants and small children, which is why all Medela Baby soothers are made without BPA.

Are Medela Baby products made without BPS and plasticisers?

Medela Baby products do not contain BPS or plasticisers.
Bisphenol S (BPS) is similar to BPA. It is used in the production of plastic containers and can also be found in food and beverage can linings and various paper products. It appears to have the same health risks as BPA, with concerns about its influence on the hormone balance of infants and small children, which is why all Medela Baby soothers are free of BPS and BPA.

Plasticisers, also known as phthalates are used in polyvinyl chloride (PVC) plastics to improve the flexibility and durability of the material. This chemical can also leach out of the product. Some plasticisers have caused concerns about the influence on hormones in children and adults. That is why we specifically use only phthalate-free PVC in our products.

Are soothers bad for the teeth or can they cause misalignment of the teeth?

No, the limited and responsible use of a soother should not cause problems with misaligned teeth. Soother use should be limited to less than six hours per day.5 Choose a soother shape that supports oral development, usually signalled by the word ‘orthodontic’.

Limiting the hours of daily use and early weaning from a soother can help prevent misaligned teeth5. Weaning a baby from a soother can begin as early as 6 months. Each child’s mouth and teeth develop differently. The use of soothers for children older than 24 months should be a decision made by each parent, based on consultation with a medical or dental healthcare provider. At the latest, weaning should start by 36 months6 as recommended by pediatric dentists.

All Medela Baby soothers are orthodontic and designed to help support the natural movement of mouth muscles7. Their shapes come with:

  • Thin neck teat – minimises the space between the upper and lower jaw 
  • Flat teat – takes up less space in the mouth allowing for more tongue movement
  • Flexible and elastic teat – allows for additional tongue movement
  • Lightweight – minimises the work of the facial muscles
  • Ergonomically shaped shield – to fit the contour of the face and prevent pressure points
How often should soothers be cleaned?
  • Before its first use, boil the soother in hot water for 5 minutes.  Allow it to cool thoroughly before giving it to your baby and squeeze out any residual water that may still be in the teat.
  • We recommend to clean the soother by washing it with warm water before every use.
  • To ensure safety and good hygiene, sterilise the soother if it is heavily soiled or you live in a country in which water may be unsafe.
  • Parents often decide to sterilise the soother more frequently in the first 3 months of life of their baby.
How often should I replace the soothers?

We recommend to replace soothers that are in daily use every 1–2 months, to ensure a safe, hygienic condition of the soother and help prevent any bacterial contamination.

Before each use, pull firmly on the teat and inspect it for tears or holes. Always replace the soother at the first sign of wear or damage.

Replace soothers immediately after your little one has had any infectious disease (e.g. a cold, stomach flu).

How can I recycle the soother?

Medela Baby packaging is recyclable, both the carton and the plastic blister and steribox are made of PP.

Our one-piece soother, the Soft Silicone is fully made of silicone, it is recyclable and can be handed over to recycling centers where available.

Our other soothers (Newborn, Original and Day & Night) are made of 2 materials (PP and silicone teat) that are ultrasonic welded and not detachable to ensure your baby safety. As they are not detachable, they are not recyclable.
