Tips For Success
Introduce the pacifier after a feeding. A hungry baby is going to start sucking on our pacifier, and it will trigger a familiar and neutral suckling motion. However, your baby will expect milk to eventually come out and when it doesn't, you might wind up with a very unhappy camper! The perfect time to try the pacifier is after your baby has been fed and needs to be soothed.
Be patient! There’s a learning curve. We’re putting a little bit of work into pacification. Baby will have to use the same jaw and mouth movement as when breastfeeding to keep the NinniCo. pacifier in use. If accustomed to a traditional pacifier, this may be a learning curve. After a few tries, most babies get the hang of it.
If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again. Because this pacifier utilizes different oral motor movement than traditional pacifiers, it takes little more work and your baby may need a few tries. If your baby rejects it, don’t worry! Try again later in the day, or again tomorrow. Give yourself a few days to become accustomed to it.
Soothe and Remove. Because of the distinct differences in the NinniCo. pacifier, most parents and caregivers notice the baby only uses it to calm down and help fall asleep. When it comes to play periods, active exploring and activities outside of quiet time, your baby may reject the pacifier. Don’t worry! That’s a GOOD THING! We repeat, it’s a good thing. Because of the mouth and jaw work needed to use the NinniCo. pacifier, it will be hard for baby to suck on it and play at the same time. Our goal, as supported by speech and feeding specialists, is to soothe and remove.
Weaning. Our philosophy aligns with supporting healthy oral motor and tooth development, naturally assisting your baby in weaning from any pacification when it’s time.
