Natural or Dental?
Difrax has two sorts of pacifiers. The Natural and the Dental pacifier. The teat on the Natural pacifier has a flat base and the head of the silicone teat is rounded into an oval. We call this symmetrical. This means that the pacifier is readily accepted, especially by breast-feeding children. The pacifier is also suitable for children who like to rotate the pacifier in their mouth. This pacifier is exactly the same each way up.
The teat on the Difrax Dental pacifier also has a flat base and the end of the teat has one flat side that provides the tongue with a better grip when sucking. The Dental pacifier stimulates the development of the palate and the tongue and jaw muscles. The rounded part of the teat lies against the palate, and the flat part presses on the tongue. Good for children who need this, or for those who reject the Natural pacifier shape.
Every child has its own preferred type of pacifier and both types are equally reliable. Depending on what your child prefers you can use either a Natural or a Dental pacifier. Unsure what your child prefers? Then we recommend trying the Natural variant first.
