Which Pacifier Should I Choose For My Child?

Ultimately, your child will make the decision for you, but this guide is a good starting point for how to choose the best pacifier for your little one.


First you can start by picking the best shape for your babies needs:

Orthodontic, Round, or Symmetrical

Now you can choose between two sizes:

0-3 months and 3-36 months


If you’re not sure which shape to choose, you can read below and decide based on age and feeding preferences:

Symmetrical pacifier (Duck)

The symmetrical teat is similar to the shape of a nipple and is therefore recommended to breastfed babies. This duck pacifier is our smallest, so if your child has found other pacifiers too big, we recommend giving this one a try.

Orthodontic pacifier (Star & Moon)

Our Orthodontic pacifiers are designed to prevent tooth misalignment and orthodontic issues later in life, as baby teeth come in and eventually give way to adult teeth. The Star & Moon pacifier has a flattened bottom and rounded top. Doctors, orthodontists, and lactation consultants recommend starting with a symmetrical teat for breastfed babies to not interfere with breastfeeding and if baby is willing to switch over to an orthodontic pacifier around six months to prevent teeth misalignment.

Round pacifier (Crown)

The round or cherry shaped nipple/teat is similar is similar to the shape of both the HEVEA Baby glass bottle and most other bottle nipples. If the child is used to drinking from a bottle, there is a fairly big chance, they will love the Crown pacifier with a round teat.
