Pacifier For Breastfed Babies

Best Pacifier For Breastfed Babies

Pacifiers are a must-have for newborns. They help ease fussing and calm your fussy baby, plus they’re recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics for use during naps and bedtime to reduce the risk of SIDS.

Your baby will love the Philips Avent Soothie pacifier. The shaped shield is contoured for a natural nipple position and has soft edges for added comfort. Plus, the silicone design makes it easy to clean.

So, what’s the best pacifier for breastfed babies? One that’s easy to find, something your baby will enjoy and that won’t interfere with breastfeeding.

Reviewed & Approved

The MAM Newborn Pacifier has a uniquely designed shield that allows for air circulation and is safe to use immediately after birth. For a pacifier that mimics breastfeeding, we recommend the Philips AVENT Soothie Pacifier.

However, you can’t toss just any pacifier into your cart—it needs to be newborn-specific. Jennifer Horne, a consultant relations manager and international board-certified lactation consultant at The Lactation Network, tells Verywell Family that it’s important to purchase pacifiers for newborns with the “correct age range that is recommended on the packaging from the manufacturer.”

Pacifiers come in a variety of different shapes, and some newborns may require a little trial and error to find the right one. We carefully considered design, material, value, age recommendations, and pacifier safety2 when reviewing products.

Here are the best pacifiers for newborns to help everyone rest easier.

Breast Like Pacifier

The breast-like pacifier shield curves away from the baby’s face and offers superior ventilation and extra airflow, preventing the build-up of moisture which helps to protect the baby’s delicate skin against irritation. The nipple is designed with a flat surface to allow babies to latch on comfortably. A choice of two different nipples provides additional variety and will help support the transition from breast to bottle by encouraging natural sucking habits.

The NUK Breast-Like Pacifier Shield is designed to protect the delicate skin of your baby’s face. With a curve that allows for easy latch, the shield offers superior ventilation and extra airflow for comfortable use for your baby.
