Key dummy Information

About dummies

Many parents end up offering their baby a dummy at some stage (whether they planned to or not!). It’s an entirely personal decision to choose to use a dummy with your baby.

There are so many different dummies to choose from, and some babies will need to try a few different dummies before you find the right size, shape and texture that suits them. Also be aware that some babies will not take a dummy, no matter which dummies you try, while others do just like to have that extra sucking time to soothe and comfort themselves.

Silicone, latex or rubber dummies

Dummy shape: cherry vs orthodontic

Cherry-shaped dummies are round, while orthodontic-shaped dummies are rounded on one side and flattened on the other. Orthodontic dummies are designed to encourage baby to suck on the dummy the same way they would suck a nipple while breastfeeding. They’re also designed to cause less issues with baby’s teeth.

Some babies do have a preference for the more traditional rounded cherry-shaped dummies, and you might need to try out both to see which one baby will take.

Other factors to consider when choosing a dummy

Dummy chains

Dummy chains can be so useful when out and about with baby, especially if they’re old enough to start to pop their own dummy out of their mouth. It can be frustrating constantly losing or washing dummies because they get thrown on the floor! Be aware dummy chains should be short so baby can’t get them tangled around their neck, and also shouldn’t be worn to bed. Also check the dummy chain regularly for signs of wear, as they can break apart and be a choking hazard.
