Should the pacifier look “whitish” after sterilizing?

It’s perfectly natural for the rubber to have a white tinge to it after sterilizing. Rubber will return to its natural color in a few days.

What’s up with the rubbery smell?

Before sterilizing, Natursutten has a distinct “rubber” smell. While it will mostly disappear with sterilizing, your pacifier may continue to have a distinctive, natural rubber scent. Studies show that this actually allows your baby to distinguish the smell of his/her pacifier and be comforted by it.

Why is the shield so big? Should it be touching my baby’s nose?

Yes, Natursutten’s shield is noticeably larger. It’s designed to touch your baby’s nose in order to more closely simulate breastfeeding. And yes, your child will look like Maggie Simpson while sucking on it.

Why has my baby’s Natursutten turned dark brown? Is this okay?

Natursutten will turn darker brown over time, due to the fact that no chemicals are added to prevent oxidation, as with other pacifiers. This is perfectly natural and to be expected.

Does it really need to be replaced every 6 – 8 weeks?

In order to meet European safety standards (EN-1400), we’re required to recommend replacing the pacifier every 6 – 8 weeks on the packaging. However, moms have told us that Natursutten often lasts longer. Like your toothbrush, it all depends on frequency of usage—not time. Replace your Natursutten if the nipple sticks together when pressed or the pacifier starts to feel sticky overall.

Why pay more for natural rubber than silicone?

Natural rubber is softer and “squishier”, and therefore more like the real thing. Silicone is—how shall we put it?—harder.

Wow, it bounces, doesn’t it?

Because it’s natural rubber, Natursutten is bouncy when dropped. We recommend a pacifier clip.

My baby is using the pacifier as a teether. Is this okay?

Natursutten is the only pacifier with a thick, rubber shield that doubles as a great teether. So let your baby teethe away.
