own preference when it comes to the nipple shape of their pacifier.

Ecopiggy's natural rubber pacifier, Ecopacifier, is made of 100% pure rubber from the rubber tree,
Hevea Brasiliense, just like our Ecoteether. These trees are sustainably grown in plantations in Malaysia. The rubber tree exudes 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.
This product is made from 100% natural rubber from the Hevea Tree. Various conditions including
humidity, temperature, the season of harvest, etc. can affect the color (making the product appear darker o lighter), and smell (scent of natural rubber). The beauty of 100% natural products is that their variability is confirmation of nature itself-the tree in spring is much different than the free in autumn.
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. READ MORE INFO
