Nice and affordable adult sized pacifiers are sometimes hard to come by. If you're willing to drop a good amount of money on a pre-made paci by all means go for it but this guide will show you how to customize your own adult sized paci into any design you want at a fraction of the cost.
Difficulty: relatively easy
Things you'll need:
- MAM pacifier of your chosen design; size does not matter, brand does.
- Adult sized pacifier you wish to remove the nipple from
- Prying tool / knife / anything to help you cut through and pry apart plastic
You need to have an adult pacifer handy or a nipple of your preferred size.
I have this one:
You can also buy the nipple alone from here:
1.) You're going to be removing the button part of your MAM pacifier. Pull on it as hard as you can with your hands as the tool may damage it. As tempting as it may be, DO NOT USE YOUR TEETH. You could seriously injure yourself or break your teeth like this.
This is what you're trying to do.
2.) Firmly tug on the baby sized nipple until it pops out. You'll be left with 3 pieces: baby sized nipple, shield, and button. Throw away the baby sized nipple or keep it for future projects, whatever you want.
3.) You're going to be destroying the face plate on your existing adult pacifier. Be careful not to puncture or cut the nipple. If you have an adult nipple without the face plate, then you can skip this step.
This is all you want. Throw away the old face plate if you wish, you won't be using it.
4.) All you're doing here is pushing the adult sized nipple through the MAM shield.
5.) Snap the button back in place (This might take a little force to get it to click in there)
And you are done! You now have your own super cute custom paci for yourself or as a gift. If you guys do this tutorial please post your results! I would absolutely love to see them.
