The best NUK Pacifiers of all times.

Sucking not only ensures the intake of food, it also promotes the development of the most varied of abilities. For this, the tongue has to have enough space for free sucking movements. This is the only way to exercise every muscle that babies need for swallowing, chewing and learning to speak correctly. And it is possible with the new NUK Pacifier: being so flat, thin and narrow, it leaves the tongue enough room. And it fits optimally into the mouth, when the baby sucks it. That is confirmed by midwives, paediatricians and orthodontists*.

babies need to suck

All babies come into the world with an innate need to suck. Breastfeeding satisfies this, giving them everything that they need: being held close and their optimal nutrition. But for many babies, the need to suck goes beyond breastfeeding. For these babies, NUK Pacifiers are optimally suited, as:

  • the unique NUK Shape is modelled on a breastfeeding parent’s nipple as they breastfeed.
  • NUK Pacifiers are particularly well accepted by breastfeeding babies too.

Not only did we invent the pacifier that is right for the jaw, we have now optimised it, so that it comes even closer to nature. The result is the now even better Original for relaxed babies and their parents.

Silicone or Latex?

Silicone is neutral in taste and smell, as well as very heat-resistant. Silicone pacifiers are particularly hygienic and easy to clean.
Latex is a natural product and feels soft and warm to the touch. The honey-yellow material is especially flexible and tear-resistant.

Highest quality is our standard.

NUK Pacifiers have to meet extremely high demands when it comes to material and assembly safety. We work passionately every day to meet these requirements – and exceed even the specified quality standards. For we know that only the very best quality is good enough for your baby.

Before a new NUK Pacifier comes onto the market, each one has undergone numerous checks, passed tests and fulfilled international norms – its tear strength has been tested, it has been monitored by assembly robots and cameras and examined by the trained eye of a quality control employee. Even independent inspectors regularly check the production at our German site. But all that is worth it to us: the trust that millions of parents have had in our products for decades, is our very highest award. It motivates us to continue to set new standards every day.
