Should you buy pacifiers online?

When newborn pacifiers are used and cleaned appropriately they are 100% safe to purchase in store or online! The Ingy Bingy Band, a pacifier wristband is the safest pacifier accessory to go with it!

It’s great to be cautious as a parent. In this day and age, I think it’s really hard to be overly cautious anymore! This being said, let’s talk about pacifiers. 

Are pacifiers safe?

When newborn pacifiers are used appropriately they are 100% safe! You should monitor your baby when using their pacifier to ensure 100% safety! Inspect your pacifiers regularly so there are no holes or loose parts that could be choking hazards.

Is it safe to buy them online?

Of course! Most people forget that newborn pacifiers should be replaced every 4-6 weeks. If it’s easier to order from Amazon then run to the store, do it! There’s no difference! 

However, always remember to sterilize them when you take them out of the package before your child uses them because there could be bacteria on it. After that, make sure to keep cleaning your infant pacifiers daily because the infant pacifier keeps falling out!

How to sterilize an infant pacifier:

  • Wash thoroughly with hot soapy water.


  • Run through the dishwasher: A dishwasher bottle basket is a great place to put a newborn pacifier to make sure it doesn’t get stuck under anything and can get cleaned properly.

After each wash, remember to inspect each pacifier. If there are holes or signs of wear the infant pacifier should be replaced immediately.

Pro Tip: Although ordering online may be convenient, it may be easier to go into the store to look more closely at the different infant pacifier options. I always find it easier to overlook things and order the wrong item online than when I’m looking in the store!
