When to replace your FRIGG pacifier

If you take good care of your child’s pacifier and replace it in time, you can safely enjoy the peace and sense of wellbeing the pacifier gives your child.

Pacifier replacement – how often?

Pacifiers must be replaced after 4-8 weeks of use – all depending on how much the pacifier is used during this time. Some babies have a very strong suction or only use one pacifier at a time, and in these cases the pacifier may be ready for a replacement after less than 4 weeks.

There is also a hygienic reason to replace the pacifier regularly. The older the pacifier gets, the more bacteria will hide in them. For this reason, your child shouldn’t use the same pacifier for more than 8 weeks – even if it seems like it is in perfect condition.

Always check the pacifier before use

Before giving the pacifier to your child, you should always examine it for visible traces of use – do this by pulling the nipple. If the nipple has tooth marks, cracks, or other signs of wear, you must replace it immediately.

How to make the pacifier last longer

If you take good care of your child’s pacifier, it will naturally last longer. Dirt will cause a lot of wear and tear on the pacifier, and therefore it is a good idea to store it in a clean and dry place. When you are on the move, the pacifier should be stored in a protective pacifier case.

NB! If the nipple of natural rubber pacifiers gets bigger, it means that it is time to replace the pacifier. Natural rubber pacifiers are not as long-lasting as silicone pacifiers – they can actually get old just by being stored in the closet. For that reason, you shouldn’t buy more natural rubber pacifiers than you need.
