Top 5 Dummies

Like if this guide is helpful
Every parent knows the importance of dummies. A dummy can soothe a fussy baby and provide both baby and parents with some much-needed relaxation. Dummies can also help babies properly develop jaw muscles and help prevent sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) when used at nap time and bedtime. As babies get older, a dummy helps prevent thumb sucking, which can be damaging to the jaw. There are many dummies available in different sizes and shapes. Shoppers should be aware of the various features available before making a purchase.
