Natursutten Pacifiers

by Tadpole on April 14, 2013

Natursutten Pacifiers, made in Italy, are an eco-friendly, all natural substitute to regular plastic pacifiers. The pacifiers are made of 100% pure natural rubber sap from the Heavea basiliensis tree, making them biodegradable and completely chemical free for your little one.

By using these all-natural pacifiers, you avoid allergy and cancer causing substances, artificial colour, hormone disturbing substances, chemical softners, along with parabens, PVC and phthalates. Though the protein that causes latex allergies is eliminated during production, it is not recommended that babies and toddlers with diagnosed latex allergies use this natural rubber product. Softer than silicone, the Natursutten brand manufactures the pacifiers as one piece, molding the pacifiers without joints or cracks, therefore preventing dirt or bacteria to accumulate on this one piece pacifier.

With the choice of a Round or Butterfly shaped shield, the pacifier will follow the baby’s natural mouth movements, and will not leave marks on the baby’s face! The butterfly shield grooves under the nose, while the round shield touches the nose, mimicking the feeling your little one gets during breastfeeding. Either style is available in both a round and orthodontic nipple, and come in sizes Small (0-6 Months), Medium (6-12 Months), and Large (12+ Months).

These pacifiers are made by EcoBaby, a company that prides itself on natural, toxic-free baby products, ensuring more of a chemical free future for our children and the environment!
