When it comes to pacifiers, we know you have many options. What matters most is your baby's safety and experience. While silicone nipples are most common, not all pacifiers are made with this material. In this guide, we'll explore why you should choose a silicone pacifier, and why silicone nipples are the safest and best choice for your baby. 

Why You Should Choose A Silicone Pacifier

Buy The Tiger

First and foremost, the material used for the nipple part of the pacifier should be safe to use and comfortable for your little one. While we can't help but gush over how cute Gamezies mascots are, the nipple is truly the most important part of your baby's pacifier—as it resembles the mother's breast. 

When you first introduce a pacifier to your baby, the nipple material can make your baby love it or reject it completely. It's important to get it right on the first try. That's why choosing a material that closely resembles the feel of a mother's breast is crucial. 

Silicone nipples are the most common because they feel similar to a mother's beast and will give your baby the most natural experience. 

Pacifiers with a silicone nipple are extremely easy to manage and clean. You can easily put the silicone pacifier in the dishwasher and clean it with little to no effort. 

Silicone vs. Latex

Buy Smokey

Another material commonly used is latex. Despite the possibility of your child having a latex allergy, there are other reasons to forgo latex. Latex is not as durable or long-lasting as silicone pacifiers. Unlike a silicone pacifier, you cannot put latex in the dishwasher, so they are more intensive to clean. If you do choose a latex pacifier, be sure to have your baby allergy tested for latex beforehand.
