The Natural Rubber Soother is produced using a sustainable raw material. The tree sap from the rubber tree used in these soothers is grown and made in Malaysia.
Natural Rubber Soothers are extremely hygienic because they are molded in one piece. This means there are no joins or cracks in the Natural Rubber Soother where dirt and bacteria can accumulate.
The Natural Rubber Soother shield is larger than conventional dummy shields, touching baby's nose to provide closer simulation to breastfeeding. The size of the shield also prevents babies from squeezing the soother into their mouths. It will not leave marks on your baby's face due to the high level of elasticity of the natural rubber.
The Natural Rubber Soother is softer than silicone soothers, which makes it easy to wash and care for and also ensures that it won't fall apart.
No chemical softeners
The round shape tends to work better for breast-fed babies because the tongue is positioned under the nipple as it is during breast-feeding, which helps prevent nipple confusion. About 80% of babies tend to move soothers around in their mouths, so the position of the round soother can never end up around the wrong way.
Make U Well's Natural Rubber Soothers meet the Australian Safety Standard for soothers, code number AS2432-1991/2008. The Natural Rubber Soothers are also made to conform with the Pacifier Safety requirements by European standard EN1400.
Care of your rubber soother
Natural Rubber Soothers should be boiled in water for 2 minutes (and allowed to cool) before first time use. Afterwards they should be cleaned on a daily basis.
Natural Rubber Soothers will slightly change colour during use. As the soother is made from Natural Rubber the texture and colour of the soother will change over time.
Once the rubber is sticky to touch it is time to replace the soother as it is starting to breakdown and biodegrade.
Natural Rubber Soothers should be replaced every 8-12 weeks (depending on frequency of use) with the age appropriate size, if your child still needs the additional support a soother can provide.
