Pacifier Clip Safety: What You Need to Know

Pacifier clips are an indispensable accessory for parents who want to prevent their little ones from losing or dirtying their pacifiers. Although they are very practical, it is crucial to focus on safety when choosing and using these attachments. In this blog we will discuss the most important safety aspects of pacifier clips and how to choose the ones that will best protect your baby.

1. Selection of Safe Materials

When choosing a pacifier clip, it is important to check what materials it is made of. The safest attachments are made of materials that are harmless and suitable for children.

  • Natural Materials : silicone beads made of 100% food-grade silicone and natural beech wood. Pure solid and uncoated, natural, antibacterial and hygienic beech wood. All the highest quality materials are completely free of BPA, PVC, cadmium, lead, latex and phthalates.
  • BPA Free Plastic : Plastic without bisphenol A (BPA) is a safer choice, as BPA can have a harmful effect on children's health.
  • Stainless steel : Metal parts should be made of stainless steel, which is durable and does not cause allergies.

2. Length of the Clip

Clips that are too long are a choking hazard. The standard length of pacifier clips is between 20 and 22 centimeters, which is long enough to be useful but short enough to not pose a danger.

3. Strength and Safety of the Clamp

The clip should be strong enough to hold the clip securely in place, but not too heavy or have sharp edges that could injure the child.

  • Secure Grip : Check that the clip holds firmly but is easy to open with one hand.
  • Rounded Edges : The clip should have rounded edges to avoid damaging the child or clothing.

4. Correct Use

Improper use of pacifier clips can cause danger to the baby. Always follow these safety guidelines:

  • Do Not Attach to Cords or Ribbons : Never attach the clip to cords, ribbons, or parts of clothing that could wrap around your child's neck.
  • Regular Inspection : Regularly inspect the attachment for any damage or signs of wear. If you notice any damage, stop using it.

6. Avoidance of Hazards

Some attachments may present hidden dangers. Avoid clips with small parts that a child could bite off and swallow, and clips with long cords or ribbons.
