A classic round pacifier in a timeless design. Designed and made in Denmark. BIBS have been on the market for over 40 years – an all-time favourite! They are the preferred pacifier for many children because of the cherry shaped nipple. The shape of both shield and nipple is like a mother’s breast and is the optimal support for a natural sucking reflex and for breastfeeding.
The nipple is made of 100% natural rubber latex – which is soft and flexible. The nipple is equipped with a vent hole, letting out the air to make the teat shape as natural as possible. Because of the natural material, variations in colour and clearness may occur – remember to replace within 4-6 weeks of regular use! The shield is convex which allows airflow to ventilate the delicate baby skin. The shield is made of polypropylene (PP), a very light plastic material with high strength, and is very wear resistant.
BIBS pacifiers are final sale and are not able to be returned or exchanged due to health and safety.
We have size 1 and 2 available, which are both suitable from newborn and come in a pack of 2.
Size 1 is recommended for up to 6 months.
SIze 2 is recommended for up to 18 months.
All BIBS Dummies meet the Australian Safety Standard for soothers, code number AS2432-1991. The BIBS Dummies are also made to conform with the Pacifier Safety requirements by European standard EN1400.
BIBS are available in 2 sizes. We have stated an approximate age for each size, but this should only be used as a guideline. The anatomy of small children is different from child to child, and some children prefer a larger or smaller nipple. We therefore advise you to try and see what fits your baby the best.
For your babies safety
Always inspect the product carefully before use, especially when the baby has teeth. Inspect the pacifier by pulling the nipple in all directions. Discard it at the first sign of damage or weakness.
Only use dedicated pacifier holders tested to EN 12586. In order to avoid accidents and strangulation, never attach other ribbons or cords to a pacifier. The pacifier should not be stored in direct sunlight.
How to clean your pacifier
There are often doubts about how to properly clean a pacifier, and there is a lot of more or less qualified advice on how and how often to do it floating around– so it is with good reason if you feel confused.
This is your guide to cleaning your BIBS pacifiers.
How to sterilise your pacifier:
When cleaning your pacifiers, just follow these four simple steps:
1) Put the pacifiers in a clean bowl.
2) Pour boiling water over the pacifiers and let them soak for 5 minutes.
3) Let the pacifiers dry and cool off on a clean towel.
4) Use the towel to press out any excess water inside the nipple.
Most pacifiers are equipped with a valve. If the nipple has a valve, be sure to squeeze excess water out of the nipple after the pacifier has cooled off.
NOTE: You should only sterilize the pacifier before the first use.
TIP: When the child is more than 3 months old, you can also sterilize your pacifiers by placing them in a sieve and pouring boiling water over them. This method is faster and avoids excess water inside the nipple.
Caution! We often receive inquiries from parents who have followed the National Board of Health’s recommendation of boiling the pacifier for 5 minutes. The result is broken pacifiers. DO NOT BOIL. Natural rubber latex is not meant to be boiled and is therefore damaged by the high heat.
Follow the instructions above, and you are sure to kill any bacteria without compromising the durability of the natural rubber latex nipple.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I CLEAN THEM?
Part of good pacifier hygiene is frequent cleaning. The younger the child, the more important it is to maintain good pacifier hygiene.
Premature infants and babies younger than 3 months need more thorough and frequent cleaning.
0-3 months: The pacifier must be scalded at least once a day. In addition, the pacifier must be scalded every time it has been on the floor.
3+ months: Scald the pacifier once a day and rinse it under cold water if it has been on the floor.
