My newborn is 11 days old now and exhibiting some strong preferences– like for his NUK Orthodontic Pacifier ($5.99 for a 2 pack). I’ve tried a few other brands, but even at a week old — he knows the difference between NUK and the other brands. He will actually scream if I do not give him his NUK pacifier.
The dentists in my husband’s family approve of NUK, because of it’s orthodontic design. Benefits, according to the company, are that the “NUK pacifiers are based on the shape of a mother’s nipple and an optimal shape for the baby’s mouth, and it exercises the tongue, palate and jaw and encourages the correct development of your child’s teeth. It also has the NUK® AIR SYSTEM®, which releases air and allows the nipple to remain soft and keep its shape.”
I’m breastfeeding as much as possible and one thing that definitely soothes the soreness (that I have) is NUK’s Gentle Moisturizing Balm ($4.86 ). Safe for mom and baby,it’s lanolin-Free and hypoallergenic Twist up to use (no need to rub in). You don’t need to wash it off before feeding your baby.
Thank you to NUK USA for providing samples for review purposes.
