MAM Soothers

Advantages of soothers – non-nutritive sucking

Soothers & Breastfeeding

For many mothers, breastfeeding is one of the most intimate moments with their child. After all, breastfeeding can be a very special bonding moment for mother and baby. But what about breastfeeding when a soother comes into play?

Science has shown, that soothers and breastfeeding do not interfere with each other, as soon as breastfeeding is going well.
Dr. Alejandro G. Jenik, head of Neonatlogy 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.

Once a good breastfeeding relationship is established the occasional use of a soother can be introduced. Babies know their territory and learn quickly to differentiate between the use of a soother and their need to suck in order to feed. In this way a soother is the ideal support when it comes to satisfying the non-nutritional urge to suck. 

Most important USPs of MAM Soothers

  • Like our MAM Soother Shields, the flat, symmetrical shape of each of our teats ensures that they always fit correctly in baby’s mouth – no matter how many times they are turned around.

  • Every MAM Soother is designed to provide enough room for little noses, so parents can be assured that it’s a perfect fit.

  • Fresh air for healthy skin – big air holes in the shield guarantee maximum air flow to avoid saliva accumulation and wetness next to baby’s skin. This helps to prevent skin reddening and soreness.

  • A clever curve – the curved shape of MAM Soother Shields is adapted to 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.

Product development with Health Care Professionals


MAM soothers come in many different trendy colours and motifs. Regular new collections mean that there is always a perfect match for the latest baby fashion.
BPA/BPS free: All MAM products are made from materials free of BPA and BPS. 

Silicone vs. natural rubber

Silicone is synthetically manufactured, free from allergens and has no taste. The clear material looks hygienic and does not age. Its only disadvantage is that it is a little harder than latex and less bite-resistant. We have developed a unique silicone for our soothers: MAM SkinSoft Silicone. This is softer than other types of silicone and feels familiar to babies. Thanks to the anti-slip surface, the soother stays easily in baby’s mouth. 
Proven effectiveness: market research confirms that 94%* of babies accept the MAM SkinSoft Silicone. (*Market research 2010-2018, tested with 1,383 babies)
Natural rubber, also known as latex, is a soft, bite-resistant natural product. Due to the natural ageing process of the material, the teat becomes sticky and darker with age. Since 2002, MAM has produced its own rubber in Thailand, where it grows naturally. MAM employees in Thailand process it under fair conditions.
