How it works
This pacifier product is targeted at babies from zero to six months and the makers claim it offers features such as natural flexibility to imitate a human nipple. It is fitted with nubs which can rub and stimulate the baby’s gums with a gentle massage type of sensation. The product has silicone based features which are gentle in terms of benefits for a baby’s hygiene needs. The bristle effect can bring a degree of relief for a teething baby as it applies a balanced amount of distributed pressure over the surface area of the gums. This consistent pressure can positively contribute towards giving relief during bouts of teething. Designed to standard orthodontic principles, this pacifier can fulfill the needs of a baby in sensory terms through a level of performance and application which is generally standard among brand pacifiers. Designed into this product is an air system which is in place to promote hygiene and reduce the chances of irritating delicate skin.
Teething is a natural developmental process which leads towards a baby gaining his/her first set of teeth. The process is barely noticeable among some babies, moderately uncomfortable for some babies and at times painful for others. It is unavoidable and will happen, the only question is how much discomfort will it cause for a particular baby and this is where pacifiers are very helpful.
Pacifiers are exactly what the product name says, they will pacify a baby and offer calming effects. The earliest records of man-made pacifiers go back to the second century in Italy where they were in the form of animal-shaped figures made from clay. These figures contained a small hole or cavity in which honey was placed so that the baby could suck out the honey. For modern dentists, this old style of pacifier simply does not meet the standards required nowadays. Prior to man-made pacifiers, babies sucked on their fingers and evidently, this worked well enough. In past years, pacifiers have been made from pearl, silver, gold and even materials dipped in Brandy.
Nubu pacifiers are still designed on the principle that a baby needs pacifying or relief during teething and natural oral development and these aims are achieved through the design and materials currently in use. The other design consideration which has effectively been applied is that these pacifiers do not have a negative effect on oral hygiene and do in fact promote positive oral development. This design incorporates a shape which is very easy for a baby’s mouth.
An innovative designed in air system promotes good hygiene value which in itself serves to bring down the potential of irritating delicate baby skin. This product features built on nubs which serve to gently massage and provide good blood flow and positive stimulation to the baby’s gums. This product is offered in a two-pack in a good variety of colors so there is always a useful reserve ready for use.
Because this product comes in a two pack this means that use of it can be regularly rotated, this further saves on wear and tear while also pushing up the level of hygiene. More focus can be given towards keeping clean a pacifier, storing it in a good sterile environment and rotating the use of it. This product comes close to a natural shape though attentive cleaning after use is suggested to ensure that it remains sterile and free from any bacterial growth.
Clean this product with a known cleaning agent which is capable of sterilizing it and ensuring it stays safe for use. Because this brand offers two together this empowers a parent to double up on care, maintenance and safe hygiene and this offering by the maker is a good sound sensible option. The product can be passed through a dishwashing system though it is still smart to check how clean it is after this and the makers suggest putting this in the top rack of a dishwashing machine.
Ease of Use
Designers have so many factors to take into account when designing a modern pacifier which “all” babies will accept. Negative outcomes from history talk of drooling babies rejecting primitive versions of pacifiers and superstitious parents thinking the baby is possessed by a demon because it will not become calm. Thankfully we are more advanced now and designers know beastly what is required for the creation of a good product which can naturally be accepted and used by young babies.
Modern products have so much research put into them for safety, effectiveness, ease of use, and durability. Performance is always a paramount requisite, especially where babies are involved. The makers of this product have done their research, they have looked closely at design quality, they have ensured the use of baby safe materials and they have added some extra features to promote healthy gums in combination with an ability to calm a teething baby.
Maintenance has been carefully considered and the two pack deal ensures a lot more control over hygiene and regular maintenance. This item comes as a double product offer, it works, it is effective, it is user-friendly and safe. If you use this product say for example in the middle of the night to calm your baby, you will be very happy with your investment. Equally, during the day a baby is susceptible to going through teething stages when you have the right product close to hand, the situation can be dealt with quickly and your baby can go through a much calmer teething process.
