Which nipple is better?
Specialty stores and pharmacies overcrowdedgoods for children. The variety of products, of course, can not but rejoice. But in this regard, many parents have difficulties in choosing a suitable subject for their child. Today we will talk about pacifiers: which nipples are better.
Before deciding which pacifier to choose, it is necessary to understand the material from which they are made.
- Latex teats. These nipples are yellow, you immediately distinguish them from the second species. The material is completely natural, as it is amino acids, natural polymers and proteins. Change latex nipples more often: every 3 weeks.
- Silicone nipples. Silicone soothers are transparent. The material is considered synthetic, but safe. There are no problems with disinfection. It will be a practical purchase, because the goods will last you a long time.
- Rubber nipples. Buy for kids, who have already begun to cut teeth. Silicone - the material is hard, so it can lead to deformation of the teeth. Make sure that the rubber nipple is not allergic to the baby.
Advice: choose one-piece material so that the child does not tear the pacifier and does not swallow the small parts.
What are the nipples of the size? There are two main sizes. Nothing complicated: the first and the second.
- Nipples of the first size are bought for newborns. They are used up to 4 months. Pay attention to the holes. Nipples with one and two holes must be bought for children up to 2.5 months. And if there are three holes, this is a dummy used from 2.5 to 3 months inclusive.
- Nipples of the second size are designed for children from 4 months.
Do not worry, information about the age of the childalways indicated on the packaging of any nipple. Also note that a nipple with two holes allows the fluid to flow down the walls of the mouth, and not directly into the throat.
- What nipple to buy for a newborn? The smallest is best given a pacifier in the form of a drop.
- Round nipples are classic. They are very similar to the mother's nipple. Therefore, if you want to bring the child closer to natural sensations when feeding, why not choose a classic. The ball is easy to grasp the lips.
- Nipples of anatomical shape usepopularity, as they are often recommended by the doctors themselves. You can hear other names of this form: orthopedic, dental or orthodontic dummy. What is their charm? The advantages of such a purchase are that sucking this nipple contributes to the true development of the lower palate and jaw. The fact is that on the one hand they are flat, and this corresponds to the location of the baby's gums.
It is very good that young parents are asked this waya matter of how to choose a nipple. But no matter how funny it may sound, the baby often chooses his favorite nipple shape. Each form has its advantages. You will in any case from time to time change your nipples, buy different. Observe the baby, which is more to his liking. All children have different length of the tongue, and in general the structure of the mouth.
Finally, I want to remind you that dummies of newborns should be changed at least once every 3 months, because:
- any material deteriorates with time,
- from the sterilization of the nipple, it, of course, wears out, there are microscopic cracks,
- in the cracks germinated microbes.
