- Promotes Natural Oral Development
- Helps Reduce Pressure on Developing Gums
The Playtex® Ortho-Pro® Pacifier is designed by dentists to not cause teeth misalignment.* The ultra-thin, wavy stem helps reduce pressure on developing gums for promoting natural oral development. It also has an AirComfort™ Shield that is designed for promoting greater air flow to help prevent skin irritation. The unique Snug 'N Place feature helps prevent the ring from flopping around and possibly disturbing baby's sleep.
Tip: Sucking to soothe is natural for baby. Pacifier vs. thumb? Babies suck their tiny thumbs even before they are born. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends using pacifiers vs. thumbs to comfort babies. A pacifier habit is easier to break than the thumb and offers you more control during the weaning process. Also, thumb sucking can cause jaw misalignment and malformation over time.
For over 60 years, Playtex has been committed to understanding what's most important to both moms and babies. We work continuously with each new generation of moms and their babies to help us learn firsthand how we can provide the highest quality baby products. This relentless desire to help improve our products ensures that we are giving moms and babies exactly what they both need for better beginnings right from the start.
