In Search of Safer Pacifiers: Natural Rubber Natursutten is a Find

We've been in the hunt for an all natural pacifier for quite some time now. Well, the hunt is over! The Natursutten Pacifier recently became available in the US and it's exactly what we've been looking for. We've gotten to know the folks behind the Danish company and really like what we've seen. They are committed to providing safe alternatives with a high standard of quality.

Natursutten pacifiers are made from pure, natural rubber from the tree Hevea Brasiliensi. The pacifiers are extremely hygienic because they are molded in one piece. This means there is no joints or cracks where dirt and bacteria can accumulate. The pacifier shield is larger than conventional shields to help protect babies from squeezing the flexible material enough to get it into their mouth. It will also not leave marks on the baby's face.

Natursutten's Outstanding Features

  • No artificial colors
  • No chemical softeners, parabens, PVC or phthalates
  • Rubber pacifiers are naturally softer than silicone
  • The Natursutten company states that the protein that on rare occasions can provoke a latex allergy is eliminated during production
  • When comparing natural rubber to silicone, a major advantage of all natural rubber is it's soft flexibility, which allows it to form to the baby's mouth.

Natursutten Pacifiers are available in two shapes and several sizes for the perfect fit!  (*Note: In order to err on the side of safety, we do not recommend using Nattursuten pacifiers with children who have known latex allergies.)

  1. Sorry to see I’m too late! But these look like a great alternative. And I love that there are two shapes to choose from.

  5. Hi Heidi,

    Thanks for stopping by our blog! You can find the Natursutten pacifiers at The Soft Landing store.

    We seem to sell out of them as soon as they arrive from Denmark. If we happen to be out of the style/size you need, check back in about 8 days as we have a shipment in transit right now and will have plenty to go around (at least for a little while!).

    We are continuing to hear rave reviews on the all natural Natursutten.

  9. “Silicone pacifiers are also non-toxic”….so I am safe with the Gerber Nuk silicone orthodontic nipples and silicone Nuk orthodontic pacifiers?

  11. Hi Monique,

    Gerber is one of the few brands that has all non-toxic pacifiers. When I mentioned silicone pacifiers, I was referring to those made from 100% silicone with no plastic shield, such as Soothie and Gumdrop. Most pacifiers have some BPA in the shield, but Gerber’s shields are made of polypropylene, which in non-toxic.

    I hope that helps explain the difference,

  13. Hi,

    My son will turn 2 in May. He’s been using Avent pacifiers and formula bottles since he borned. I was shocked when I heard about the BPA news. I went to Toyrus today and all the glass bottles are gone. My husband and I are so frustrated as they said they did’t know when the next shipment will arrive. We don’t know where we can buy the Born Free glass bottle in Toronto. Can u please advise us where we can buy the Born Free glass bottle asap? We’ll very much appreciate for your info. Thank you so much!

  15. I just sterilized my new pacifier in the microwave sterilizer for 10 minutes because I was following the directions on the package of the pacifier. The pacifier changed colors. Is it okay to continue to use the pacifier? By using the microwave to sterilize it, did I change the properties of the pacifier?

  17. What about nitrosamines in the rubber and silicone pacifiers and nipples? Are they in the new Natursutten paci and what do you know about this chemical? Thanks for caring about our babies!

  19. Hello

    I am having trouble finding a straight answer. My 10 month old twins use Avent pacifiers. Are they safe from BPA, phthalates, PVC and/or polycarbonates. In other words, are they safe? What pacifiers are the safest? I am so confused. I know why I should worry about BPA and phthalates, but do I need to worry so much about PVC and polycarbonates?

    Any info is appreciated

  21. Hi Daphne,

    Jeremiah of ZRecs has spoken directly with Avent. He was told that all Avent pacifiers currently contain BPA, so you will probably want to avoid them.

    As for BPA and Phthalates:

    BPA stands for bisphenol-a; it is the toxic chemical used to produce polycarbonate plastic.

    Phthalates are a chemical used to soften PVC plastic.

    So in essence, you are worrying about PVC and polycarbonates when you avoid phthalates and BPA.

    Please feel free to email me at info@thesoftlanding.com if you would like more explanation.

    Sincerely,

    Alicia

  23. Hi,
    just want to mention that if you read the description for these pacifiers it says that they need to be replaced every 5-7 weeks! Given that they are already 6.50 each, plus 7 dollars shipping, that makes this product pretty unaffordable for most people. I was about to order one when i read that blurb and now i’m on the hunt for a cheap and safe alternative…

  25. Hi Elena,

    I’ve spoken to the Natursutten company and confirmed that the recommendation to replace them every 5-7 weeks is just that – a recommendation. It’s a lot like the toothbrush companies recommend replacing your toothbrush every 2-3 months.

    We just need to be aware that this pacifier is made from a wonderfully natural, and thus easily biodegradable material. It should be monitored for gummy spots, stickiness, and tearing and replaced at that time.

    Hope that helps clarify a little,
