A dummy is the perfect companion
Dummies are known to be perfect companions for babies and kids when going to sleep and as a comforter when your kid is sad and tired. Parents have much to do in the home - therefore, a dummy can be a great help.
Having a baby on your arm can be rather challenging, therefore, a dummy and perhaps a baby nest can be a great solution; the baby stays inside the baby nest and can enjoy having his or her dummy while resting and lying comfortably.
The dummy is a good friend when your little girl or boy is going to start in day nursery or is going to be cared for by the grandparents for the first time.

Dummies in different materials
Babies and children are different and this is why we offer dummies in different materials.
Some dummies are made of natural rubber (also known as latex), while others are made of silicone. None of the two is better than the other, but in case you have latex or rubber allergy in your family, you should choose the dummies in silicone.
You always have the option to read more about the different dummies and the materials they consist of, under each product description. Here you can also read about the properties of the dummy as well as which age range it suits best.
Flat or round dummies
Another question which many new parents ask themselves is: Which shape should the dummy have? Like with many other materials, there isnt only one right answer to that question.
Some children and babies prefer flat dummies while others like those with a round head. We recommend that you try the different types of dummies to see which type suits your child best.
There are also dummies with different shields or bases which refer to the part which the dummy head is attached to and which is outside the childs mouth.
If you find that the dummy doesnt fit the childs face or mouth properly, then try another style with a different shape.
All the dummies we offer here at Kids-World come with holes in the shape in order to make sure that no vacuum is created between the dummy and the childs skin.
Your choice of dummy also depends on whether you are nursing or bottle feeding.
Baby dummies for different age ranges
When you are going out to buy dummies for your little baby or your child, you should always check out which age range the dummy is designed for.
Your little girl or boy grows, and so should the dummy. It is always possible to find the specific price range which the dummy is intended for, if you read the specific product description.
Remember to replace your babys or childs dummies often to make sure they dont get mushy or even break while your child has it in its mouth. You will definitely notice when its time to replace the dummy, as the dummy will start to change its shape, get small cracks or even change colour.
It is even more important when the child is getting teeth as this will be a little more rough on the dummy than earlier.

Maintenance of baby dummies
Babies and kids dummies must be kept clean - just like everything else - so they dont transfer bacteria to the baby or the kid. Parents need to take precautions when purchasing dummies.
If you baby loses the dummy on to the floor, or it has been a while since the dummy was used last, its important that you clean the dummy thoroughly. Its also a good idea NOT to lick the dummy before giving it to the baby. Diseases may be transferred.
There are different guidelines to how the dummies should be cleaned, which depend on the material they are made of. Dummies made of silicone typically withstand being boiled, while it is recommended that you pour boiling water over dummies in natural rubber and latex and leave them there for a few minutes only.
Remember to empty the dummies for water after each wash in order to avoid getting bacteria in the dummy.
If you think of bringing extra dummies on the go, it may be a good idea to store the clean ones in a little plastic box with a lid that closes tightly so that the dummies dont get mixed with everything else you carry in the bag. In this way, you make sure that you always have a clean dummy for your child, even when youre away from home.
Get the same colour dummy for day nursery and kindergarten
In order to make it easier for the nursery teachers, its a good idea to get same-colour dummies; then its much easier for them to know which dummy is your kids dummy.
Often dummies lie in many different places and the nursery teachers find them...and other kids as well (and they might take each others dummies).
You can alternatively choose to buy dummies with a specific pattern or motif. This will also make it easier to recognize the dummies.
