What Parents Are Saying About This Pacifier
As of this writing, The Dr. Brown's One Piece Silicone Pacifier had 295 customer reviews and 13 answered questions. To make shopping for a pacifier easier for you, I've read the reviews, questions and answers, and then condensed the results here in this report. Therefore, I will walk you through the main topics that parents were talking about with this pacifier.
Parents liked that this pacifier was all one piece. To most of the parents who left reviews, they commented that they liked that there were no extra parts that could come off and pose a choking hazard. One parent who I will quote here, said what many others were saying about safety
"As far as safety goes, you can't go wrong with one piece pacifiers and I like that they are silicone. The nipple is the perfect size for a small mouth and I feel safer knowing there is nothing that can come apart on them. They are very flexible and inexpensive enough to buy again when your little one loses them. They are very durable. I will definitely buy these again."
When picking out a pacifier, you will have a lot of choices of shapes. To me it seemed like you have the "cute" ones and the strictly "functionally shaped" ones. This Dr. Brown's One Piece Silicone Pacifier is one that I'd describe as strictly functional. Many other parents also felt this way.
One parent commented this,
"I wasn't looking for "cute" or flashy, I was looking for function. My little guy had some latching issues so we had to use a nipple shield for a while and I had to pump well for him to get enough milk. The last thing I wanted to do was create nipple confusion as well. These pacifiers are exactly what I wanted. Thicker silicone, simple, good nipple that matches the level 1 bottle nipples. The only complaint I have is the place where you would connect the pacifier leash is kind of in an awkward place but we made ours work. Good purchase!"
The price is a selling point with the Dr. Brown's One Piece Silicone Pacifier. Consequently, I couldn't find a comment that complained about the price.
The actual pacifier dimensions are 6.1 X 2.2 X 3.9 inches. They are made for newborns on up. After reading the comments on size, I found I couldn't find any definite conclusions on what parents thought about the size. Comments ranged from this,
"The nipple is the perfect size for a small mouth and I feel safer knowing there is nothing that can come apart on them," to this "It's a little larger in size than most other pacifiers so it was difficult for him to keep it in his mouth without my help up until he was 4 or 5 months old."
I think this just goes to show that babies are so unique.
This pacifier is made out of silicone. Parents commented how they liked that it was thick enough that their child couldn't bite through it. Many commented that it was thicker than the bottle nipple. Overall, parents said that their child liked the material and they liked that it was durable and wouldn't break off. This parent said what many others were also saying,
"The pacifier itself is very well made so that an infant can't chew through it and will last a long amount of time if you don't lose it before it wears out."
Another parent commented that this might be a good pacifier to use for when her child starts teething. She said,
"This pacifier is made of a little thicker material than the bottle, so my infant doesn't like it as much as the bottle nipple that he is used to, but it does the trick!!! I feel that it will be a great and useful tool when teething!"
The Dr. Brown's One Piece Silicone Pacifier is a functional pacifier that is made to be durable and safe. It's not one of the cute pacifiers out on the market. Yet, that is why a lot of the parents liked this pacifier. Furthermore, it is easy to wash and will not fall apart. You can wash it by hand in warm soapy water or throw it in your dishwasher. One of the main selling points is that this pacifier is priced to sell. I'd say if you are buying a pacifier, you can't go wrong with The Dr. Brown's One Piece Silicone Pacifier.
