Sucking is a natural reflex that exercises the tongue and mouth muscles while producing a soothing effect. To satisfy this innate need while allowing for proper oral development, NUK created orthodontic pacifiers designed for the natural development of the jaw.
NUK® pacifiers do more than just soothe - they encourage healthy oral development and support strong feeding skills.
- NUK® pacifiers are based on the shape of a mother's nipple while breastfeeding and are therefore optimally adapted to the baby's oral cavity
- Conforms to baby's mouth just like mother's breast during feeding
- Orthodontic design gently exercises tongue, palate and jaw, promoting proper teeth alignment
- NUK® Air System allows nipple to self-adjust for proper fit
- Grooves in the pacifier shield allow air to circulate helping to prevent skin irritation
Care for Healthy Pacifier Usage:
- Prior to first use, sanitize by boiling in water for 2 minutes
- Pacifier should be cleaned prior to each additional use
- For day-to-day cleaning, simply wash with hot water and mild detergent then rinse clean, or use the top rack of dishwasher.
- Pacifiers should be replaced approximately every three months
These baby pacifiers are manufactured for larger mouths of big babies. The guard width (longest dimension) is 2 inches for the colored pacifiers and 2 3/16 inch for the white pacifiers. Shipped with the NUK box,this is the largest pacifier made by NUK and has been nick named the NUK 5 as a result. This pacifier can be comfortably sucked by an adult with tremendous benefit. Keep one in the diaper bag, one in your purse and several in the nursery.
Recent studies have also shown that pacifier use among may cut down or completely eliminate snoring. This enables those suffering from snoring to enjoy sound sleep themselves and make sure that their family members get their rest at night as well. It uses the same principle as swallowing. When a subject sucks on the pacifier, the tongue rests behind teeth. When the tongue remains motionless, soft palate no longer vibrates and consequently it prevents sound from occurring in the first place. In addition, while holding the pacifier in his mouth, the person is not inclined to open his mouth. Reportedly they manage to cure 7 out of 10 people from snoring.
In an unfamiliar playroom, babies accompanied by their pacifier evidenced more play and demonstrated less distress than did babies without them. Pacifiers should be considered to be attachment objects, similar to other security objects like blankets. They are excellent at soothing and calming even the largest baby. The widespread occurrence of attachments to pacifiers as well as their importance as security objects should reassure parents that they are a normal part of development for a majority of babies. There is no reason you should feel ashamed or embarrassed if you need one.
