MAM Pacifiers

Learn all about pacifiers and discover the best pacifier for your baby

Every baby experiences the natural urge for non-nutritive sucking—a need that begins even before they enter the world. During the initial year of life, this desire to suck is significant. Even when their hunger is satiated, babies find comfort in sucking, finding it profoundly relaxing. Other than mom’s breast, only pacifiers support healthy oral development because they are anatomically correctly shaped and quality checked to ensure that the sucking becomes pure enjoyment!

MAM Pacifier Range

To ensure that we meet all babies´s and parents needs, MAM offers 5 different pacifier lines.

MAM Pacifier

At MAM, we share the opinion that a product that spends hours every day in a baby’s mouth must fulfill the highest quality requirements. That is why our pacifiers are developed with a team of professionals and are carefully tested.

  • All MAM Pacifier Shields are flat and provide a symmetrical shape. 
  • All MAM teats ensure that they always fit correctly in the baby’s mouth – no matter how many times they are turned around. 
  • In contrast to a cherry teat, our symmetrical MAM teats ensure a more natural mouth closure to reduce the risk of misaligned teeth. 
  • Fresh air for healthy skin – big air holes in the shield guarantee maximum air flow to avoid saliva accumulation and wetness next to the baby’s skin. This helps to prevent skin reddening and soreness.

  • A clever curve – the curved shape of MAM Pacifier Shields is adapted to the baby’s face shape to ensure optimum comfort. It is flatter for smaller babies and has a stronger curve for older babies whose facial features have become more defined. 
  • SkinSoftTM Silicone We have developed a unique silicone for our pacifiers: MAM SkinSoft Silicone. This is softer than other types of silicone and feels familiar to babies. Thanks to the anti-slip surface, the pacifier stays easily in the baby’s mouth.

Choosing the best pacifier

When choosing the right pacifier for your baby it is important to consider the following factors:

  • Safety: Choose a pacifier that meets safety standards and is free from harmful chemicals such as BPA, phthalates, and PVC.
  • Personal preference: Ultimately, the pacifier you choose should be one that your child likes and will use. Every baby is different, so be prepared to try a few different pacifiers before finding the one that works best for your baby.
  • Age-appropriate: Choose a pacifier that is appropriate for your baby's age. There are pacifiers specifically designed for different ages. 
  • Size and shape: The size and shape of the pacifier should be appropriate for your baby's mouth. Look for a pacifier that fits comfortably and securely in your baby's mouth without being too small or too large. 
  • Material: Pacifiers are made from a variety of materials, including silicone and latex. Choose a material that is safe, durable, and appropriate for your baby's needs.

Pacifier and breastfeeding

For many mothers, breastfeeding is one of the most intimate moments with their baby. After all, breastfeeding can be a very special bonding moment for them. But what about breastfeeding when a pacifier comes into play? Science has shown that pacifiers and breastfeeding do not interfere with each other if breastfeeding has already been established. Dr. Alejandro G. Jenik, head of Neonatology at the Hospital Italiano in Buenos Aires (AR) and his team conducted an extensive study  with over 1 000 mothers and babies in five different hospitals. Ok what was the outcome here? Once a good breastfeeding relationship is established, the occasional use of a pacifier can be introduced. Babies know their territory and learn quickly to differentiate between the use of a pacifier and their need to suck to feed. This way a pacifier is the ideal support when it comes to satisfying the non-nutritive urge to suck.

Pacifier safety & hygiene

It is important to inspect your baby´s pacifier before each and every use by performing a Pull-Test and checking for any signs of damage. Make sure to sterilize your pacifier before first use and at regular intervals thereafter. MAM pacifiers are supplied in a practical sterilizer box, which can be used for convenient and energy-efficient sterilizing in the microwave.
