BIBS Dummies Care Information
BIBS made size 2 as their universal size suitable for NB-18months, however some babies have been known to gag at the length of the size 2 teat, so the size 1 would be most suitable for 0-6months as the teat is shorter. Once your baby is 6 months and onwards, they are developed enough that they shouldn't gag on the length of this teat so our recommendation is 6-18m with a size 2 BIBS dummy. This is a guide only.
BIBS dummies are Danish made, 100% BPA, PVC & Phthalates free and have a 100% natural rubber teat.
When you receive your dummy, like any other dummy it will need to be sterilised before use. DO NOT use a steriliser of any kind as they can get too hot and may make the plastic bubble. Immerse your BIBS dummy in a cup of boiling water for 5 minutes and then let it air dry.
Please read the care instructions carefully on the inside of your box. Dummies should be replaced every 4-6 weeks. Natural Rubber swells when it's sucked therefore keeping them longer than the recommended time period will cause excessive swelling which leads to making it difficult for bub to take a new dummy (which hasn't swelled yet). In some cases the teats can split due to excessive expansion.
All BIBS dummies feature a vented teat which are tiny holes that allow air to escape, thus allowing it to stay soft and keep its shape and helping to prevent jaw malformation.
Due to the "vent" opening, water can sometimes enter the teat when the soother has been sitting in boiled or sterilised water, if this happens let the dummy cool down and then simply press out the remaining water using your finger and thumb, with the ring facing downwards
Please ensure you choose your BIBS dummies carefully, for hygiene reasons we do not offer any returns or exchanges.
All BIBS Dummies meet the Australian Safety Standard for soothers (code number AS2432-1991). The BIBS Dummies are also made in accordance with the Pacifier Safety requirements by European standard EN1400.
Please note: Dummies do not come with a cover or cap.
