Why use BIBS pacifiers?
Comforting Danish infants for over 40 years, these premium choice dummies have quickly become a favourite amongst our FJ fans! And with our wide range of colours and sizes, there’s something for every taste, giving little ones a colourful start to life!
These BIBS pacifiers have a round shield, with three vent holes and a round BIBS engraved handle ring – this is also available with a glow-in-the-dark handle ring, making life a little easier for our FJ Mammas at night!
The shield is designed to curve away from the baby’s nose and mouth, ensuring minimum contact with baby’s sensitive skin – which means less chance of moisture build-up from saliva, and ultimately less risk of rashes in this area.
The cherry-shaped nipple has been carefully designed with a valve system, to support the baby’s natural sucking reflex, and shapes to his/her oral cavity. These nipples are manufactured from 100% natural rubber latex – a super soft, elastic, and resilient material, very much resembling the Mother’s soft nipple.
Also available in silicone, the industrially manufactured hypoallergenic, odourless, and taste-neutral material has a smooth transparent nipple – it’s not as soft as the rubber latex, but it retains its shape, does not age, and can withstand high temperatures.

The BIBS pacifier is 100% free from BPA, PVS and Phthalates.
Available in sizes ONE, TWO + THREE (Latex) or ONE SIZE (Silicone)!
 
Some FAQ’s and NB care instructions:
+        What size pacifier to choose?
This is a very general guide, so we recommend trying out different sizes until you find the perfect fit for your little one. All sizes can be used from birth, it just comes down to your baby’s preference. It is not dangerous to give a newborn a size 3, but because some prefer a smaller size, we reference the following BIBS World recommendations:

Silicone

  • One size – birth onwards
Latex
  • Size 1 – 0+ months
  • Size 2 –    6+ months
  • Size 3 –  18+ months
+        When should I replace my BIBS pacifier?
– BIBS World recommends the replacement of latex and silicone pacifiers every 4-6 weeks for hygienic reasons.
– Because this is a natural rubber latex comes with a natural aging process, affected by natural influences like UV-light, air, saliva, and heat.
– Since natural rubber latex is a natural material, colour variation of the nipple may occur.
 Some children will not take a pacifier that is different from the one the child is used to. So, if you experience that the pacifier expands, replace the pacifier before the child gets used to the bigger nipple size.
– Replacement is recommended when you notice any of the following characteristics:
  • Changes in the surface
  • Changes in size
  • Change in shape
  • Rupture in the material
  • Becomes brittle or sticky
+        Care and cleaning the right way!
– The natural rubber latex should be scalded rather than boiled!
– Put the pacifiers in a clean bowl. Cover them with plenty of boiling water and let them soak for approximately 5min.
– Pick them up and let them dry on a clean towel.
– The nipple’s valve system is also the reason why water can be presented inside the teat after cleaning. If this is the case, simply squeeze the teat flat to remove the excess water.
 
+        IMPORTANT DON’Ts
  • Do not leave natural rubber latex pacifiers in direct sunlight.
  • Do not put the pacifiers in the dishwasher.
  • Do not use UV or steam sterilizers for the pacifiers.
  • Do not use microwave sterilization for any latex pacifiers.
  • ONLY silicone can be microwave sterilized.
  • Do not freeze the pacifiers.
TIP: When the child is over 3 months, you can also rinse the pacifier by placing them in a sieve and pouring over them with boiling water. This method is faster and avoids water collecting inside the nipple.
+ Which should I choose – natural rubber latex OR silicone?

Latex is a natural material, whereas the silicone is an industrial material, manufactured with food-grade silicone which is 100% free of harmful ingredients.

Silicone pacifiers ultimately don’t age and last longer than latex, because they can withstand high temperatures (like microwave sterilization) and retain their shape. Latex on the other hand has a natural ageing process and is affected by natural influences like UV-light, air, saliva, heat etc.

It is recommended that if you have a latex allergy in the family that you go with a silicone pacifier, as it is an allergy-friendly material.

Silicone is odourless/taste-neutral, whereas latex can have a slight characteristic odour/taste.

Each material is unique, and both have great properties. Remember, although as a parent we may have a preference to which material we prefer, all babies are different and when it comes down to it, they’ll decide which they prefer while other babies do not have any preferences and will take whatever material you offer.

 
All BIBS pacifiers are certified to conform to the EU directive concerned with safety, health, and environment. (Pacifier Safety requirements by European standard EN 1400+A2).
