The act of sucking on an object stimulates a baby's mouth and soothes the little one, inducing a calmer state. With a dummy, parents or caregivers can offer this calming activity to their baby when the breast or bottle is not available.


If you decide to use a dummy to soothe your baby, look for one with approval from doctors and dentists as being safe for the child's oral development. In addition, make sure that it is free of phthalates, BPA, and other potentially harmful substances. Choose from a variety of designs in numerous colours and patterns to delight baby and stimulate visual development. Buy several dummies so that you can keep them in the house, in the diaper bag, and in the car for easy access.
