If you follow any mommy bloggers on Instagram, or are a frequent shopper on Etsy, you’ve probably seen pacifiers that look like this:
When I started noticing these natural pacifiers more and more, I admit I was feeling a little left out. So I decided to do some research. It turns out they’re made by Natursutten, a European-based company that specializes in non-toxic, plant-based baby products. I reached out to Natursutten and requested to try a few pacifiers for myself.
As an exclusively breastfeeding mom, it can be frustrating at times when I’m constantly being used as the “human pacifier.” I’ve tried different brands of pacifiers, and while some work as a temporary fix, nothing quite compares to the comfort I provide my daughter. Natursutten pacifiers are different than anything we’ve tried in the past. They not only are natural, but they feel natural as well. They are very soft and almost skin-like. And the original version brushes against the baby’s nose, which mimics the comfort of nursing.
We’re sold! They seem to be working, and I’ve even got my daughter to take naps without me holding her this past week (breastfeeding mamas, you know what I’m talking about!). I don’t think we’ll be going back to the other brands anytime soon.
