Is it true that dummies reduce the risk of SIDS?

There is evidence that offering the dummy at all sleep times can offer some protection against Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS).

Breastfed babies also have a reduced risk of SIDS.2,3

How a dummy can reduce the risk of SIDS is still unclear. If the dummy falls out of the mouth during sleep, you do not need to reinsert it.3 If your baby refuses the dummy, 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 dummy work?

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

Place the dummy 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 dummy safe for my baby?

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

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

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

Dummies 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 dummy from being pulled out of the mouth while actively moving during sleep or due to uncontrolled arm movement.

Can the ink used for printed dummies become a danger?

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

How does the ideal dummy look?

Requirements for dummies have been recommended by speech-language pathologists. The following features should be incorporated into a dummy's design to help support the natural movement of the mouth muscles. 4,8

  • 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 dummies. 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 dummies 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 dummy 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 dummy teat shape important?

The shape and features of a dummy 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 dummies 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.4,8

Are Medela Baby dummies orthodontic?

All Medela baby dummy teats are orthodontic as they have been developed using criteria defined by speech-language pathologists.4,8 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.
Does the teat size matter?

Yes. Our dummies 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 dummy 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 is a symmetrical teat?

Symmetrical teat means the teat has the same shape on the upper and lower parts.
A dummy 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.

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 dummies made without BPA?

Medela Baby dummies 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 dummies bad for the teeth or can they cause misalignment of the teeth?

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

Limiting the hours of daily use and early weaning from a dummy can help prevent misaligned teeth.5,6 Weaning a baby from a dummy can begin as early as 6 months.7 Each child’s mouth and teeth develop differently. The use of dummies 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 months6,7 as recommended by pediatric dentists.

All Medela Baby dummies are orthodontic and designed to help support the natural movement of mouth muscles. Their shapes come with:4,8

  • 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 dummies be cleaned?
  • Before its first use, boil the dummy 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 dummy by washing it with warm water before every use.
  • To ensure safety and good hygiene, sterilise the dummy if it is heavily soiled or you live in a country in which water may be unsafe.
  • Parents often decide to sterilise the dummy more frequently in the first 3 months of life of their baby.
How often should I replace the dummies?

We recommend to replace dummies that are in daily use every 1–2 months, to ensure a safe, hygienic condition of the dummy 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 dummies immediately after your little one has had any infectious disease (e.g. a cold, stomach flu).

How can I recycle the dummy?

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

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

Our other dummies (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.
