The First Years GumDrop Pacifiers Review and Giveaway (CLOSED)

Congratulations to Karen! Thanks to everyone who played!
Neither of my children were born fans of pacifiers. With Mr. B, we tried and tried but he just wouldn’t have it. If you’re a parent who’s gone through trying to get rid of the paci I know you’re saying to the computer right now, “consider yourself lucky!” While we didn’t have to go through that battle, there were late nights that I really wished he would’ve found comfort with one.

Now that we have Miss Ryleigh, she was also born not wanting the paci. While we were in the hospital the nurses tried to coach her into one, it just didn’t work. We had the orthodontic type style and she did not want anything to do with it. When you put it in, she’d either get really upset or just look at you, spit it out, and say “pah” with it. Even as a newborn she was quite the diva. I guess I should correct that….”princess”.

While she wouldn’t find comfort with those pacis let me tell you what she would find comfort with….the bottle. She would have to fall asleep with the bottle in her mouth. Now we all know that’s a huge no no. I’d have nightmares of her teeth coming in black. So, when I was approached to review The First Years new GumDrop Pacifiers, I looked at the design and thought we might be on to something.

GumDrop Pacifiers

The new BPA free and latex free silicone GumDrop Pacifiers take some of it’s design from the Soothie pacifiers. I like the GumDrop better because it’s not as “overwhelming” as the Soothie. It still has the nipple like design, but it doesn’t take up your baby’s entire face and cover the nose. The design actually follows the lines of baby’s face so it has a more contoured fit. The GumDrop also features a holed tab so that you can use the optional pacifier attachers. GumDrop Pacifiers are available in two sizes, newborn (0 to 3 months) and infant, and come in playful green, blue, orange, pink and purple colors.

Now at 10 weeks old, I guess you can see that we solved our falling asleep with the bottle problem. While I sleep somewhat better now, it’s not the dreams of black teeth that keep me awake.

We also had a chance to review a pacifier attacher, and case with pacifier wipes. I loved the whimsical polka dot design on the attacher. However, I personally am not a fan of the clip itself. It works great, but it’s huge in comparison with other paci clips and reminds me of one of those big magnet clips you use on your fridge to keep up with papers. I will say though that the pacifier case and wipes is so convenient to have! It will fit 2 pacis in the zipper pouch, and the velcroed flap opens up easily to access wipes in the event baby’s paci, toy, bottle, or cup gets dirty.

All in all The First Years did a great job designing the GumDrop Pacifiers and added convenience with the pacifier clips, and case with wipes! These definitely get this mom’s seal of approval!
