Thread: Just got my first pacifier!

  1. #1

    Question Just got my first pacifier!

    Today I just got my first pacifier (technically pacifiers, it was a pack of 2)! They are Nuk 18-36 month pacifiers, which I believe is Nuk 3 (correct me if I'm wrong). Are there any tips for pacifier care and usage? Also, I just sucked on one and I can feel the imprint of the teat on the roof of my mouth, is that supposed to happen?

    Thanks!

    I'm brand new to pacifiers myself. My wife got me a baby one on a night when she was a bit tipsy, but it was too small to be comfortable. About a week ago, I got an adult sized one that I ordered from Awwsocute.com and that is working out great. It has stayed in my mouth all night while I've slept without falling out and it helps me feel real babyish. So, if the Nuk 3 doesn't work out, try a Nuk 5 or other adult sized one. Have fun.

    Yeah, I think that's the size three. Nuk is my favorite brand. I graduated a few years back and moved up to the size 4, then 5, and have since gotten one of the Nuk 7's (Note the Nuk 7 isn't actually made by Nuk, but by Pacifiers R Us).

    As far as care goes, I usually just boil my in water the first time before using. Then periodically I'll rinse it off / boil it in water again.

    I think, depending on where the imprint of the teat is on the roof of your mouth, you might need a larger paci. Remember, you're using something that's designed for a toddler. It's not going to be long enough or large enough to correctly fit inside of your mouth. Be careful, since the bulb of the teat is very close to your front teeth, it can over time start to move them.

    You might need to use the pacifier sparingly, so that it doesn't do any damage. If you are wanting to use it a lot, and have it fit more comfortably in your mouth, you'll need to try to save up some money and get a larger pacifier. You can find larger ones on Baby Pants site, or Pacifiers R Us, and you might even find the Size 5 on Amazon or Ebay.

    The Standard size 5 is plain white, since it's designed by Nuk for adults as part of therapy. If you wish to have something with color, or prints; you'll need to buy from one of the two sites I mentioned. They are sites for AB/DL's.

    Some additional information on cleaning (based on previous threads that I have read on ADISC):

    Some people just rinse off the pacifier in the sink, some will use dish washing soap, some will put the pacifier in the dishwasher and some will use boiling water.

    There is a large difference of opinion as to what is needed.

    FYI: I use the boiling water method once a month and just rinse at other times if needed.

    Personally I like the nuk 3s but I have recently discovered Maam's and I like those a lot better. They are 36 mo plus I think.
