A safe and natural rubber soother ideal for babies who need the comfort of sucking
Each natural rubber dummy has a cherry teat to encourage your baby to suck in the same way as they do when breastfeeding helping avoid nipple confusion. The natural rubber soother shield is larger than conventional soother shields to provide closer simulation to breastfeeding. The size of the shield also prevents babies from squeezing the natural rubber soother into their mouths. The shield does not leave marks on your baby’s face due to the high level of elasticity of natural rubber.
The natural rubber soother is a safe alternative to other baby dummies on the market. They are molded out of one piece so is extremely hygienic, because debris and bacteria can not accumulate in joints or cracks.
These natural rubber soothers are softer than silicone soothers. Each non-toxic natural rubber soother is made from pure, natural rubber from the Hevea Brasiliensis tree which is grown in Malaysia.
Many parents are now are looking for toys and soothers that do not contain phthalates, which is typically used to soften toys for babies. While they make toys and soothers soft, they may not be so safe for our babies.
Please boil the natural rubber soother in water for 2 minutes before first use. Daily rinsing with boiling water is recommended to keep the natural rubber soother clean.The natural rubber soother may change colour slightly after use, this is a normal feature of natural rubber. Each natural rubber soother should be replaced every 6-8 weeks.

- Aeroplane travel – whilst the plane is ascending or descending air pressure changes and babies are unable to unblock their ears unless they are sucking and swallowing.
- Painful nipples – when you just can’t use your breast anymore as a comforter, a Natural Rubber Soother can give your nipples the chance to repair.
