Natural Rubber Soother Teether is made up of a single piece of natural rubber which means it has no joints (to avoid choking) so it is extremely durable.
Many parents are now looking for babies and children’s products that do not contain phthalates, which are a family of chemicals that ultimately disrupt the endocrine system. This means that they mimic and interfere with hormones. This interference in our body can cause cancer, birth defects, developmental problems, and tumours. They can also damage the liver, lungs, kidney and reproductive systems. The sooner you get this chemical away from your new born and go for a more natural option, the better!
No chemical softeners
One piece design eliminates places where bacteria can hide
Easy to hold grip
Made with 100% sustainable, natural rubber from the tree Hevea brasiliensis
Rubber sourced from renewable and sustainable crops through a tree planting program
This Natural Rubber Soothers meets Australian Safety Standard for soothers (AS2432-1991/2008) FDA, European standards (EN1400) and GB 4806.2-94 standards.
What are the care instructions for my natural rubber soother?
Before first use:
Before using your Natural Rubber Soother, please sterilise by immersing in boiling water for 5minutes, then remove from the water & allow to cool. This will remove the oily film that naturally occurs on the rubber. Never allow to cool in the water.
Simply wash in warm water with mild liquid soap. If extra sterilisation is required place the dummy in a strainer and pour boiling water over the top. Do not sterilize in a bottle sterilizer, wash in a dishwasher or leave in boiling water after the first clean.
You should always inspect the dummy carefully before each use, especially when your child has teeth. Pull it in all directions and throw it away at the first sign of damage. Being natural rubber, your product will eventually turn brown and feel sticky to touch, this is when it should be replaced.
A cord or ribbon attached to a dummy poses a strangulation hazard, especially when attached to your child's clothes so best to use the dummy on its own if unsupervised.
How often should I replace my soother?
Natural Rubber Soothers should be replaced every 8-12 weeks (depending on frequency of use) with the age appropriate size. Provided you carefully inspect the dummy before each use (especially when your child has teeth) there is no harm in using it for a longer period of time, however you’ll notice the rubber get darker and possibly sticky, which a sign it’s time to replace the dummy.
It’s also recommended that you match the age of your child to the size of the dummy. Replacing a small with a medium at 3 months and a medium with a large at 6 months is ideal.
These sizes are only a guide as some babies prefer a larger or smaller nipple.
