Pacifier baglet shapes and sizes

Round, natural shaped baglet (cherry shape)

This type of teat is the original and oldest baglet shape and mimics a mother’s nipple. The baglet point is completely round - alike a cherry – and so the soother is always the right way around.

Round teated soothers are often recommended by midwives as the “most natural” shape. When babies are breastfed, this soother teat shape can help reduce the risk of nipple confusion.

However, this shape is considered not to be very tooth- and jaw-friendly.

This soother is available in the size “uni” (one-size-fits-all) for babies and toddlers aged 0 - 24 months and can be used right from your baby’s first day until the end of their soother phase.

Symmetric shaped baglet

A symmetric baglet also has the advantage that the soother is always the right way around.

In comparison to a round shaped baglet, this type (especially the shaft) is oblate to reduce the pressure on jaw and teeth.

This soother is available in three different sizes depending on your child’s age:

Size 1 for babies up to approx. 0 - 6 months
Size 2 for babies up to approx. 6 - 18 months
Size 3 for young children from approx. 18 months and up, until the end of their soother phase

Orthodontic shaped baglet

This type of teat was developed by dentists in the 1950s to reduce the pressure on a child’s jaw during pacifier use and to thereby prevent jaw deformations from occurring.

The orthodontic soother, with its upwardly tapered teat was developed in response to findings that the mother’s mamilla (nipple) changes its shape during breastfeeding to fit and adjust to the shape of the baby’s mouth and jaw.

This soother is available in three different sizes depending on your child’s age:

Size 1 for babies up to approx. 0 - 6 months
Size 2 for babies up to approx. 6 - 18 months
Size 3 for young children from approx. 18 months and up, until the end of their soother phase

Slimline baglet

Our Slimline baglet is a very oblate version of the orthodontic shaped baglet.

The shaft as well as the baglet point are as slim as possible to reduce the pressure on jaw and teeth. An additional indentation below the baglet point leaves more room for the tongue.

This soother is available in three different sizes depending on your child’s age:

Size 1 for babies up to approx. 0 - 6 months
Size 2 for babies up to approx. 6 - 18 months
Size 3 for young children from approx. 18 months and up, until the end of their soother phase

Dentistar

The Dentistar’s pacifer was developed by us in close cooperation with orthodontists in accordance with the latest scientific findings. The Dentistar is the world’s first soother to be scientifically endorsed.

The specially developed shape of the baglet, with an extra-flat shaft and an integrated Dental-Step is designed to be as small as possible and thereby allows for the proper development of your baby’s teeth. This allows you baby’s jaw and “milk teeth” to develop naturally and prevents dental misalignments from occurring.

This has been confirmed by the findings of a long-term study by the University of Witten/Herdecke in Germany. The Dentistar is also endorsed and recommended by many dentists and speech therapists.

The Dentistar is available in two sizes:

Size 1 0-6 months
Size 2 6-14 months
Size 3 from approx. 14 months

Why do pacifier baglets come in different shapes?

Because not all children prefer the same soother shape. Regardless of which soother shape you decide to opt for, it’s possible that your child finds that shape uncomfortable and that you may have to choose a different shape. Often babies will feel most comfortable with the shape their first soother had – for example the soother they were given in the hospital’s maternity ward.

So you may find that your baby makes the decision for you.
