How to Sterilise a Natural Rubber Dummy?

Natural rubber dummies and soothers are easy to clean and sterilise. You can either boil them in water for five minutes or use a sterilising solution. Make sure to let them cool down and squeeze out any water inside the teat before giving them to your baby. You should also check the dummy regularly for any signs of damage or wear and tear and replace it every 6-8 weeks.

Can I buy organic dummies in Australia?

The closest to an organic dummy is a dummy or soother made from natural rubber derived from the rubber tree, Hevea Brasiliensis, which is a sustainable resource. Even if the tree is grown organically, by the time the sap is extractacted and made into a dummy, it would not be possible to classify it as organic. However, the beauty of natural rubber soothers is they are biodegradable and free from BPA, parabens, plastic and other harmful chemicals.

How to wean off a dummy?

Weaning off a dummy or pacifier can be challenging for some babies, but there are some tips that can help you make the transition smoother. You can start by limiting the use of the dummy to nap times and bedtime only, and gradually reduce the amount of time your baby has it in their mouth. You can also offer other comfort items such as a soft toy, a blanket or a book instead of the dummy. Another option is to make the dummy less appealing by cutting a small hole in the teat or dipping it in something bitter. You can also involve your baby in the process by letting them choose when and how to give up their dummy.
