FAQs about soothers
How long can nip® soothers and teats be used for and how often should they be replaced?
For hygiene and safety reasons, you should replace soothers after one to two months. Always check them carefully before each use, especially if your child already has teeth. If you see any signs of damage, such as bite marks or any other defects, please throw the soother away immediately and replace it as necessary.
What is the difference between latex and silicone?
Latex is an amber-coloured natural substance and is extracted as a milky sap from the rubber tree. It is characterised by its special resilience, elasticity and extreme tensile and tear strength. Latex does not become statically charged and therefore does not attract dust or fluff. Silicone on the other hand is a transparent plastic. It is more durable than latex and undergoes less optical change over the period of use. However, it is less bite resistant, which is why latex is preferable for children who tend to bite hard on the teat.
Why do the age ranges for nip® soothers overlap?
The age ranges for nip® soothers overlap on purpose to make it easier for you to choose the right soother. Babies do not all grow at the same rate and therefore it doesn't always make sense to move up to the next soother size at precisely 6 or 18 months. If your baby is already big for his or her age at 5 months, for example, you can move up to a size 2 soother without any problems.
Soother or thumb?
Since the thumb is hard and its shape does not fit the jaw, over time thumb-sucking can lead to malpositioned teeth and malformations of the jaw that are difficult to correct.
A soother made of a soft, elastic material and shaped to fit the jaw significantly reduces these risks. It should therefore always be preferred to the thumb for satisfying your child’s sucking reflex. And soothers also have another serious advantage: you can wean your baby off it by simply taking it away from your child. Not so easy as with the thumb...
nip soothers are orthodontically correct and have a soft, elastic teat with a wide and at the same time flat shaft. This reduces the pressure that the teat exerts on the dental arch or jaw compared to a narrow, high shaft common to conventional soothers.
When using a soother, should I be worried about my child swallowing it?
Do not worry, your child can NOT swallow a nip® soother! Even though it could fit entirely inside the mouth, its shape makes it impossible for it to be swallowed. If your child does put the entire soother inside his or her mouth, please keep calm. The many nip ventilation holes will mean that your baby can continue to breathe so there is no reason to panic.
Carefully remove the soother as gently as possible from your child's mouth.
At what age should I wean my child off the soother?
There are no hard and definitive rules as to when you should wean your child off his or her soother. Most children will normally give up using a soother by their third year and only very few children continue using them until their fifth year. If your child cannot part with his or her soother or finds it very difficult, it is best to gradually wean him or her off it by the time he or she is 36 months old.
