NUK 0-6 mo. latex dummies details:
The orthodontic dummies are designed to give the child an easing and comforting feeling when soothing. The shape is designed to mirror the shape of the mouth, which significantly reduces the press on jaws, tongue and palate. This shape minimizes the risk of abnormal tooth development caused by the use of dummies better than any other shape on the market.
The shield is slightly curved, which ensures an even distribution of pressure. Due to the air holes in the shield air can easily access the sensitive skin around the mouth, which reduces skin irritation.
Latex/Natural Rubber — Material
Latex — or natural rubber as it is also called — is a completely natural material without additives. Latex/natural rubber originates from the rubber tree and has an easily recognisable yellow-brown colour.
Natural rubber — nature can vary
As Latex is a natural product without the addition of dyes, please be aware that the dummies can vary in colour and texture. The teat will therefore often not be a single colour and combined with the fact that the dummies are valve dummies, the inside may appear uneven, which is completely natural and not a fault. Due to the natural material, the dummies can also vary from each other, where some may be a little lighter in colour, or a little sticky to the touch.
Natural rubber — elastic function
Latex is more elastic than silicone, and more similar to the mother's breast than silicone. Therefore, children more easily accept a latex dummy than a silicone dummy. The elastic quality also makes the dummy more bite-resistant and therefore more resistant to pointed baby teeth. Dummies with a latex teat are therefore suitable for children who bite the dummy.
Natural rubber — decomposes and ages
Latex is a natural product that ages and decomposes over time and under light and heat. When the material begins to decompose, it expands and becomes more porous so that it breaks more easily. Therefore, it is important that you store natural rubber dummies in a dark, dry place at room temperature when not in use. In addition, be aware that natural rubber changes with use, and that children with a strong suction can expand the dummy to a much larger dummy than it was originally. Therefore, we recommend that you have several dummies in use at a time, which you replace regularly, but no later than after approx. 6 weeks of use. This way, you can always see when one of the dummies starts to expand more the others — and thus needs to be replaced.
