Silicone pacifiers are further divided into solid silicone pacifiers and liquid silicone pacifiers. Due to different shapes, the degree of softness and hardness is naturally different, and the degree of wear and tear will also be different. Generally speaking, soft is good. The baby's mouth is still very fragile, and it is easy to damage the baby's oral mucosa.
so when parents buy pacifiers, they will buy several at a time. When buying a pacifier, you should pay attention to the softness and hardness of the pacifier. If it is too hard, you cannot suck the milk, and if it is too soft, you can suck the pacifier flat. The pacifier is too hard, making it very difficult for the baby to suck, so it can easily lead to the phenomenon that the baby is tired of sucking. If the purchased pacifier is too hard, you can scald it with boiling water, which not only softens the pacifier, but also sterilizes it.
When choosing a silicone pacifier, you must look at its softness and hardness. It should not be too hard or too soft. Like latex pacifiers, they are softer than silicone pacifiers, so latex pacifiers are suitable for neonatal applications. The pacifier should be soft and firm, too soft will be squashed when sucking, making sucking difficult. If it is too hard, it will be difficult for the baby to suck. Generally, the pacifier for newborns can be used in a small size. We must check whether the small hole in the center of the pacifier is suitable for size.
Silicone pacifiers have many advantages, such as colorless, odorless, non-toxic, high temperature resistance, low temperature resistance, no bisphenol A, non-toxic and harmless, and it is not easy to be deformed by any disinfection method, and there will be no long-term disinfection. Harmful components ooze out, no peculiar smell such as plastic will be produced, and liquid silica gel is better than solid silica gel.
