FAQ's about soothers
How long can you use nip® soothers and teats or how often should you replace them?
For both hygiene and safety reasons, you should replace the soother after one to two months of use. However, as a precaution, examine it before each use, especially if your child already has teeth. If you notice any signs of damage, such as bite marks or other defects, please throw it away immediately and replace it if necessary.
What is the difference between latex and silicone?
Latex is an amber-colored natural substance and is obtained as a milky sap from the rubber tree. It is characterized by its special resilience, elasticity and extreme tensile and tear strength. Latex does not become statically charged and therefore does not attract dust or lint. Silicone, on the other hand, is a transparent plastic. It is more durable than latex and undergoes less visual change over the application period. However, it is less bite resistant, so latex is preferable for children who tend to bite hard on the absorbent part.
Why do the age specifications for nip® soothers overlap?
The age specifications for nip® soothers deliberately overlap to help you make the right soother choice. Not every baby grows at the same rate, so it doesn't always make sense to switch to the next soother size exactly after 6 or 18 months. If, for example, your baby is already relatively large for his age at 5 months, you can switch to a size 2 soother without hesitation.
When I use a soother, should I be afraid that my child might swallow it?
Don't worry, your child can NOT swallow the nip® soother! It can be placed completely in the mouth, but its shape makes swallowing impossible. However, if your child does put the soother completely in his or her mouth, please remain calm. The many ventilation holes allow your baby to continue breathing, so there is no need to panic. In this case, remove the soother from your child's mouth carefully and as gently as possible.
At what age should I wean my child off the soother?
There is no hard and fast rule for when you should start weaning your child off their soother. However, most children usually give up using a soother by age 3 and very few children continue to use it until age 5. If your child is unable to separate from his or her soother or finds it very difficult to do so, it is best to wean him or her gradually until the age of 36 months.
