Product description

Breastfeeding-friendly & traceable to responsible resources: the MAM Original Start Soother

MAM Start Schnuller Header VÖ

As soon as babies are born, they receive important protection and love in the arms of their parents. Especially the warm breast and the associated proximity of the mother’s body are fundamental for the healthy development of the little ones. This also includes breastfeeding, which provides the little ones with essential nutrients, but also helps to calm down when needed. But what if the child’s need for suction is particularly pronounced beyond the mere intake of food? Breastfeeding and pacifiers? Is that okay?

As soon as breastfeeding is established between mother and child, which can take two to four weeks individually, but also longer, according to the latest studies, a pacifier can be given without any problems – without risking suction confusion.

The correct shape of the suction cup is important:

With its flat, symmetrical shape, which was modelled on the nipple, the MAM Original Start Soother ensures a smooth combination of pacifier and breastfeeding periods. This allows the nipple to recover between breastfeeding and prevents sore nipples. 94% of babies accept the MAM soother instinctively. (Source: MAM market study 2010-2022 tested with 1,541 babies) Many midwives have therefore recommended MAM soothers in their daily practice for a long time (source: Produkttest, March 2021 with a recommendation of 97%). With its jaw-compatible shape, the MAM Original Start Soother also prevents tooth misalignments.

Due to its extra small and light shield with large air holes, the soother is well tolerated for the sensitive baby skin. The MAM Original Start Soother is naturally free of hazardous chemicals such as BPA and BPS. Practical: All MAM Original Start soothers are commercially available with a practical sterilization and transport box, which allows the soothers to be sterilized in the microwave in no time. This saves time in the turbulent daily life of babies and reduces energy and CO2 emissions by up to 77 % (Global Product Carbon Footprint Study, AT 2017, conducted by denkstatt).
