Upon initial inspection I was worried that the shape of the
teat would deter/confuse my child. The design was good; basic, without any
unnecessary decorations, etc. which we prefer in a soother. The packaging is
attractive enough, and seems to be very similar to most other soothers
available. However we found that the stickers that secure the plastic container
were very hard to remove and had to resort to using a knife to cut through
them. The colours (although gender specific) were nice and neutral. We had a
few comments about how nice they looked. I specifically like the fact that they
are translucent, which enables you to see if they’re looking dirty; this is
particularly handy with a sicky baby. My favourite part of the soothers (or
rather baby’s favourite part it seems) was the shape of the teat. I was
initially concerned he may reject them since there was no flat part to the teat;
however my son took to the soothers very quickly and appears to favour these to
the others that we had previously used. I have paid more for other soothers
that haven’t been as readily accepted by my baby. These I believe provide much
more comfort to my son. After using them for 28 days, I can see no wear in the
teat, etc. so in my opinion, are good overall value for money. I have since
purchased 3 more packs of 2 soothers of the same design. I will definitely recommend
them. My overall opinion of these
soothers is fantastic. My child appears to favour these to other brands of
soothers, and even other Tommee Tippee soothers. He holds on to them for
longer, takes to them quicker, and seems to be much more settled when using
them. We have since changed all of his soothers to this style. The price is
comparable to most other soothers available, if not a fraction more but I
didn’t hesitate when purchasing three more packs. They sterilise well, and
being translucent helps to identify any dirt/dried milk etc. at a glance. When
meeting with other mothers with babies of the same age, I have received
comments on how nice they look, and about the shape of the teat. I believe 2 of
the Mums I spoke to have since changed the brand/style of soother and have had
very happy babies. Rachel Bridge – Sebastien 3 Months

The colours are cute, suitable packaging. Teat looks very
long and thin compared to other brands of dummies I’ve seen/used. The packaging
looked fit for purpose, but did not have any instructions on it about cleaning
and care. The plastic container looked like a microwaveable steriliser similar
to that which I have used with other products such as nipple shields, so I
assumed it could be used in this fashion which would have been really useful.
However on first use the whole thing melted! This warning should have been
given on the packaging. It’s a handy carry case, but has no other practical
function. The colours were simple and sweet. I like the inverted colours. I
received the pink set to trial. I thought the little handle was really useful
for parent handling, especially the way it sat flat against the soother.
However, when my baby started fussing about touching her face with her hands
she caught the handle by accident and yanked the dummy out of her mouth
resulting in tears. There are equally priced products on the market with a
sterilising container included which is much more practical and useful and far
better value. This is an average price, but I would only purchase them if on
special. I think these are too fiddly and impractical for my taste. My baby
sucks her hands a lot when she doesn’t have a dummy in so she is inclined to
pull this product out too frequently resulting in her and my distress. I
wouldn’t discourage others against buying it though. They are attractive and easily
accepted by baby. I liked this product when I first received it and started
using it. My baby took it really easily, even though she was used to using a
different shaped teat on her dummy and bottles, and I thought the handle was
useful. However, because of the long narrow shape, it slipped out of her mouth
more easily when she got tired resulting in her being disturbed – she had to
work to hold it in her mouth. The older she got the more she touched her face
and the more often she knocked it out of her mouth or got her fingers caught in
the handle. Jemma Donaldson – Charlotte 11 Weeks

The packaging is recognisable as Tommee Tippee. The teat
shape is different to any of the other Tommee Tippee soothers we have used in
the past with my son. The packaging catches your eye and looks clean and simple.
Ava was able to keep the soother in her mouth on her own; she is a very ‘sucky’
baby so got on very well with these, I will be buying more in the next age
group! They do offer value for money; 3 in a pack would be better for this
price but it wouldn’t put me off buying just 2. I would recommend them to others.
The Tommee Tippee closer to nature soothers were brilliant. Ava took a little
while to get used to the different shaped teat but after a couple of tries was
able to keep the soother in her mouth herself. We will definitely be buying
more of these! Cera Thorpe – Ava 10 Weeks
