Is Natursutten made from sustainable material?

My baby has a latex allergy. Can she use the Natursutten pacifier?
Yes, and no. The protein that on rare occasions can provoke a latex allergy is removed from the rubber sap used for Natursutten pacifiers. This means that there is no risk of provoking a latex allergy when using them. That said, we would never recommend using a product made from natural rubber for a child with a diagnosed latex allergy.
To what standards are they produced and tested?
All Natursutten pacifiers are EN 1400-certified, which means the product lives up to the European Union (EU) directive for this product area—in terms of safety, health and environment. They are continuously tested by ForbrugerLaboratoriet, the independent, distinguished laboratory in Denmark. They have also been tested in the U.S. and comply with all standards established by the CPSIA. In Australia where they comply with australian and New Zealand standards, and towards strict Japanese standards too.
Why should I buy a Natursutten pacifier over another?
When you buy a Natursutten pacifier, you and your baby avoid:
– Allergy-causing substances
– Artificial colors
– Cancer-causing substances
– Hormone-disturbing substances
– Chemical softeners
– Parabens, PVC, and phthalates
At the same time, your get a product that is made from 100% natural material, better for the enoviroment and for your baby.
What is the advantage of a one-piece pacifier?
A one-piece pacifier is more hygienic because the single-piece construction means there are no joints or cracks where dirt and bacteria can accumulate. Standard pacifiers usually have a crevice where the nipple and shield come together, which is difficult to keep clean.
Other pacifiers even have an open access to the nipple that will gather a lot of dirt and bacteria. This is not the case with Natursutten pacifiers.
Is it easy to care for? How do I do it?
It’s very easy.
Before the first use, just sterilize by immersing the pacifier in boiling water for five minutes.
Afterwards, just clean on a daily basis, by washing it in mild liquid soap under cold running water — if it needs an extra thorough clean place it in a strainer and sterilize it by pouring boiling water over it. But don’t boil it again and never leave it to cool down in boiling water.
It is not dishwasher-safe. And we don’t recommend the use of sterilizers.
The shield touches my baby’s nose! Why?
The relatively large shield on NATURSUTTEN is designed to gently touch your baby’s nose and give her the same secure feeling she experiences during breastfeeding.
For those who prefer another shape, we recently launched the NATURSUTTEN BUTTERFLY pacifier. This model leaves room for your baby's nose.
How often must Natursutten be replaced?
Natursutten should be replaced every 6 – 8 weeks. There is no harm in using it longer, but the pacifier will get darker and somewhat sticky if you use it for too long.
Why does my pacifier get darker with use?
A Natursutten pacifier will get darker over time, because its 100% natural rubber contains no chemicals or anti-oxidants to keep it light orange. This is perfectly natural and to be expected.
