Phillips Avent Soothie Pacifier Review
Soothing Your Sweet Thing
Sometimes when a child gets cranky and becomes fussy parents might turn to the pacifier for help pacifying their little ones. When I gave birth to my son, he had difficulty figuring out how to latch to breastfeed, and in that case; the pacifier helped him understand the suckling motion. He was breastfeeding successfully after trying with a pacifier first.
The is shaped just like a baby bottle nipple. It is one piece all around, no attachments; just like a baby bottle nipple but made of thick BPA (bisphenol A) -free and latex-free silicone. It is dishwasher safe and it can be sterilized either with a sterilizer or boiling in water for at least 5 minutes. It has two holes to attach onto a pacifier clip or holder.

The difference between the Soothie 0-3 months and the 3+ months is the 3+ is made of thicker silicone than the 0-3 for teething children.
They come in pink, purple, green, blue, and yellow; and they are made in the U.S.A.
- It’s just one piece. It’s not going to fall apart on you. They are simple.
- It’s made of hospital-grade silicone. Baby is not going to accidentally swallow it because of the thick silicone ring. It’s durable.
- The ring won’t leave pacifier marks on your child’s face.
- It’s silicone and if you have pets, expect to find hairs growing all over it.
- You can’t put just any pacifier holder on it because it only has two holes, no handle.
- It can fall out of child’s mouth easily if child is not used to it.
It’s a quality made product. My son prefers his NUKs over the Soothies simply because the Soothies fall off his mouth easily if he stops sucking on them. But every child is different and while one prefers one kind of pacifier, another might prefer a Soothie. They are cheap enough to not give them a try.
Some parents have mentioned the 3+ months Soothie to be too hard and their children rejecting them for it, making the 0-3 month Soothie a favorite among the two.
