Ecopacifier FAQ

Why Ecopacifier?

Our round shield simulates the sensation of mother’s breast touching a child’s nose during breast-feeding.

BIODEGRADABLE

Ecopacifier is 100% natural; free of chemical-softeners and colorants.


Which shape nipple?

That’s really up to your child.

Each child has their own preference when it comes to the nipple shape of their pacifier.  When deciding which pacifier style to offer your child–the Round or the Orthodontic–families appreciate the following visuals and additional information.  Consider offering each style to your little one, and then follow their lead!  They will let you know which shape they are most comforted by.

Round

The round pacifier is the same shape all the way around. Lactation Consultants often recommend this round shaped pacifier because it is most like the natural shape of a mother’s nipple.

Orthodontic

The orthodontic pacifier is a combination of round and flat. The flat characteristic mimics the same shape a mother’s nipple takes on as her child nurses. This natural orthodontic shape is believed to assist with maintaining developing tooth alignment.


What is Ecopacifier made of?

Ecopiggy’s natural rubber pacifier, Ecopacifier, is made of 100% pure rubber from the rubber tree, Hevea brasillensi, just like our Ecoteether. These trees are sustainably grown in plantations in Malaysia. The rubber tree exudes a latex sap, the world’s primary source of natural rubber, which is tapped in a similar manner to maple syrup from a maple tree. After about 20-25 years the tree stops producing latex sap. The trees are then harvested and replanted. The harvested wood is used extensively in furniture, flooring, construction and even toys. From seed to tree to ecopacifier to wooden toys, the Rubber tree has an eco-friendly, sustainable and high quality life.


How often do I replace?

Replace Pacifier Every 6-8 Weeks.

In the same way we are advised to regularly replace our toothbrushes, the same advice applies to replacing your baby’s pacifier. The natural sucking action of your child, contact with the oils of their skin, their saliva and other factors will, over time, naturally begin to break-down the integrity of the pacifier. Your little one will be most content with their pacifier being replaced every 6-8 weeks. (Be sure to see our cost effective 3-pack option!)

  • Inspect your child’s Ecopacifier carefully before each use.
  • Pull the pacifier in different directions and inspect for any signs of cracks, stickiness, etc.
  • When ready to replace, contact us about how to compost your old Ecopacifier!
