Soothers, dummies, pacifiers, comforters or binkies...
Whatever you call them, they can help soothe and calm baby and turn screams and sobs into smiles.
The instinctive action of sucking helps to soothe babies and all parents know there's nothing more wonderful than a content baby.
So, when you need to calm and comfort, simply pick up a Tommee Tippee Soother.
Why sucking is fine
Some babies will like being swaddled, cuddled or rocked to soothe and comfort them. Others find real comfort in sucking - fingers, thumbs, or anything at hand. They even start doing it in the womb. So if you think that a soother will help calm and comfort baby and you then go for it.
More than 50 years experience
We started making baby products in 1965 with one clear goal: to make life simpler for real families. We’ve listened to the real challenges faced by families - that’s why you’ll find Tommee Tippee soothers that glow in the dark (easier to spot at 2am) and baby-proof soother holders so they can’t be flung out of the pushchair.
Designs that grow with your baby
To make it easy and comfortable for baby to start using their soother, Tommee Tippee soothers are specially designed to feel familiar, and our super soft, flexible and symmetrical baglets will suit your baby's needs. (The baglet is the part of the soother that the baby sucks).
Our soothers are suitable for use from birth and are available in three age stages up to 36 months. The 0-6 and 0-2 month sizes feature smaller teats and shields for tiny mouths and noses. As your baby grows, you can switch to the 6-18 m and 18-36m.
Tommee Tippee recommends stopping soother use when your child is older than 36 months.
Sucking is one of your baby's natural reflexes, so a soother could be an instant source of comfort when they’re tired or upset...but only if they accept it. Tommee Tippee soothers feature symmetrical, soft and flexible baglets which feel familiar in your baby's mouth. This means they're more likely to accept our soothers first time and continue to use them until they naturally move on, or until you'd prefer to use other forms of comforting.
*83% of 349 parents recalled that their babies accepted Tommee Tippee soothers the first time. Online survey March 2017.
A reassuring alternative to traditional soothers
When mum’s breast isn’t available, our Breast-like soother is the next best thing for baby to latch onto in between feeds. Inspired by our award-winning Closer to Nature teat, our Breast-like soother feels, flexes and stretches just like skin, so there’s less chance of confusion when switching between breast, bottle and soother.
Ultra-light silicone soother
Our lightest soother ever stays put in the littlest mouths so you don't have to replace it every few minutes.
