About a month ago HeveaBabyUsa posted on their Facebook page that they were looking for bloggers who wanted to review their pacifiers.* My sister first pointed me to the page and as a mom who is constantly looking for ways to introduce more natural products to our family I jumped on the opportunity.
Hevea are modern Danish designed pacifiers and teethers made of 100% natural rubber and produced sustainably. The natural material, which is free of BPA, PVC, and Phthalates, is strong and long-lasting.
Some of the cool design features include:
- Four different patterns suitable for boys and girls.
- Two different sizes, 0-3 mos. and 3+ mos. suitable for children up to 36 months of age.
- Round or anatomical/orthodontic teats available.
Maxx has preferred the anatomical/orthodontic shape since he was born. He has also preferred the soft latex pacifiers over the stiff silicone variety. I was really curious how he would react to the rubber and how it would compare to the pacifiers we have used in the past. We received an anatomical/orthodontic shaped pacifier and the way the teat is ventilated makes it just as soft as the latex ones we usually gave him. I gave it to him to check out, and after pulling it in and out of his mouth a few times, he decided that it was just fine.
- Because the pacifiers are cast in one piece there are no cracks or joints that can collect dirt, hair, and who knows what else.
- Maxx has decided to chew on the edges and pull on the handle and there is no visible damage.
- When food and other things get on the pacifier they rinse off quickly and easily.
- The girls thought it was funny when Maxx threw it on the floor and it bounced. They now call it the bouncy binki.
- We only have one, and there have been times where it went missing for a day or two after Maxx would stash it somewhere.
- There are no stores close to me that carry the products, so my only option is to shop online.
