Get Ninni Pacifier Tips for Success from Pediatric Physical Therapist

If you’re a new mama, you already know that pacifiers are a great way to soothe your baby.

But they are so much more than that, says Dr. Giselle Tadros, PT, DPT, founder of In-Home Pediatric PT of New Jersey. As an expert on tongue and lip tie disorders and similar issues, she offers the Ninni pacifier to her clients. That’s because the right pacifier develops oral motor skills and promotes successful breastfeeding. 

Dr. Tadros offers an informative webinar featuring best practices for teaching baby to successfully use the Ninni. Complete with video examples, it’s a great resource for parents who would like more information beyond the basic instructions that come with the packaging. 

And thanks to a special offer, when you order a Ninni pacifier you can receive a special code to access this engaging tutorial for 50% off the regular $30 price, for a total of just $15.


What makes the Ninni different from traditional pacifiers is that it mimicks the way breast tissue moves while baby is feeding. This is important for supporting healthy tongue movement, oral function and sucking patterns. Proper tongue motion, also known as peristalsis, is essential for a newborn to release all milk from the breast or bottle. In her webinar, Dr. Tadros shows how parents can actually see this tongue movement in action with the Ninni pacifier. 

For preterm babies and others with sucking difficulties, this reflex can be developed with appropriate therapy. The Ninni has become Dr. Tadros’ favorite tool for developing and reinforcing proper sucking movements, which improves breast and bottle feeding alike. The Ninni also promotes overall oral development, which is why she recommends it to the families she works with. 

Ninni Pacifier Tips

Dr. Tadros suggests lots of practice to get baby used to using the Ninni. Consistent use develops muscle memory and teaches baby to latch onto the pacifier and onto the breast for feeding. The webinar includes many helpful secrets for successful suck training with the Ninni: 

  • Ways to hold the pacifier to help it retain proper shape and prevent collapsing
  • Massage methods to support proper sucking and tongue movement
  • Games to help baby work on facial muscle strength
  • How often to practice with the pacifier
  • When it’s time to seek outside help with motor development

The best time to introduce the Ninni is right after feeding, when baby is satisfied and ready to relax. Be patient and keep trying, allowing plenty of time for your baby to get the hang of it. The Ninni works best for helping baby relax and fall asleep. It is less needed for exploring and play time. Finally, the Ninni is great when baby is ready to wean from pacifying.
