Is one better than the other or is it just a matter of preference? Really you wont know until your baby gets here. My son would only take a latex bottle nipple and a silicone pacifier! He's a strange one!
Rubber Pacifier Vs Silicone: Which Pacifier Is Better for Your Child?
If you are searching for a pacifier made of percent natural materials, then rubber is the way to go. Natural rubber comes from a tree, the sap is tapped, collected and molded into the pacifier shape. These pacifiers are considered eco-friendly since the product comes from a sustainable source. The tree can be tapped up to 35 years meanwhile remaining a habitat for birds and other wildlife. There are several rubber pacifiers on the market today in all sorts of shapes and sizes.
Recently I introduced the pacifier to my 9 week old daughter. Today while I was browsing the baby section I noticed that NUK, the pacifier brand that my daughter uses has two different choices, Silicone or Latex. My question is: Which is better and why? I do what works for ME and you do what works for you.
