FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Baboo’s soothers, also known as dummies and pacifiers, come in three shapes: round, orthodontic and mango.
Both round and mango shapes are the closest imitation to a mother’s nipple. The mango shaped soother gets the name because of its rounded and slightly elongated shape. It is the smallest of the three and most likely to be accepted by your little one whilst he or she is being breastfed.
The round or cherry shape is still a close imitation of mother’s nipple, as well as the most similar to the teats of our bottles. This means that your baby is most likely to enjoy this shape if bottle fed.
Lastly, the orthodontic shape has a round top and a flat bottom. It is designed to prevent interference with a baby’s oral development, such as tooth misalignment.
However, just as with the material of the soother, your baby will have a personal preference. The type adored by one baby, can be refused by the other. Our advice is to experiment with a few shapes and find out which makes your baby the happiest.
Babies often have their personal preference to both the material and the shape of a pacifier, so if you are a new parent and just starting the shopping, picking up a few different types and seeing which one your little one prefers would be the safest option.
Multiple Baboo soothers are equipped with a glow-in-the-dark handle, to simplify the late nights. The handle is charged, or absorbs, the normal light, be it daylight or created by the lamp, and then releases it during the dark hours.
Besides wear and tear, we would like to note that the soothers come in two sizes: 0+ and 6+. Meaning, that all of your soothers should be replaced once your baby turns 6 months old.
Before the first use, as well as after the soother was dropped outside, sterilise it in boiling water for no longer than 5 minutes. When a soother is dropped indoors, a wash in a hot soapy water and a rinse will be more than enough.
To ensure that your little one can reach for the pacifier every time he or she needs to relax, all Baboo soothers support your baby’s healthy development. So you don’t have to worry and can follow your little one’s individual needs for soothing.
For yours and your little one’s convenience, all Baboo bottles are designed to imitate mother’s breast. The flexibility and softness of the tip imitates the breast shape, while the satin texture surface replicates mother’s skin. These features combined create a natural feeding process that maintains baby’s nursing skills and can be easily combined with breastfeeding.
Baboo Slow Flow teat is suitable from 0+.
Baboo Medium Flow and Variable Flow teats are suitable from 3+.
Baboo Fast Flow and Thick Flow teats are suitable from 6+.
You should wean off your little one from the bottle completely by the first birthday, as if frequent sipping from it continues past the age of one, it can lead to tooth decay.
Baboo bowls and plates are made from highest quality materials, ensuring their longevity. They might not need to be replaced before your little one switches to more fragile dishes.
When it comes to Baboo cups, they are made from the same highest quality materials and can withstand years of use, too. However if you see any discolouration or the cup starts to leak, consider replacing it.
During the first attempts do not be concerned with the amount your little one eats. It’s all about getting them used to the idea of solid food, as they continue to get their nutritions and energy from breast milk or formula. The amount, as well as variety of food, will increase gradually.
• Place the breast pump’s nozzle on your nipple, it should easily go inside it.
• Once your nipple is inside the nozzle, place your hand on the ergonomic handle.
• Begin squeezing the handle, the milk now should be pumping into the bottle.
• Continue squeezing the handle until your milk flow slows down, it usually takes around 10-15 minutes.
• Remove your nipple from the nozzle.
• Repeat with the other breast.
Furthermore, under European Commission guidelines, all baby bottles have to be made using BPA-free plastics and all Baboo products meet the safety guidelines of EU.
Being in close proximity to food, the chemical can migrate into it, leading to humans consuming it. The consumption of BPA showed a link to multiple illnesses, including infertility, diabetes and heart disease.
