As a parent, you're faced with countless choices when it comes to caring for your baby. From selecting the right swaddles to choosing the perfect cot, every decision matters. One such decision that often goes overlooked is the type of dummy teat you opt for. Parents usually just go for the quickest most convenient option but we have some compelling reasons as to why the cherry-shaped teat dummy stands out as an excellent choice for your baby.
- Natural Shape for Comfort
Babies are instinctively drawn to the breast, and the cherry-shaped teat dummy closely mimics the shape of a mother's nipple during breastfeeding. This will naturally promote breastfeeding without causing any nipple confusion. This natural design ensures that your little one feels comfortable and secure when using it. It's a simple way to provide a sense of familiarity and comfort, which can be especially soothing during moments of distress, pain or when it's time to sleep.
- No Dummy Rash Around The Mouth
If you’ve got your eye on an Orthodontic shape dummy be aware that it’s not uncommon for babies to get dummy rashes around their mouth due to the saliva being trapped underneath the shield. Cherry shape dummy shields are designed to sit off the face as opposed to wrap around the child’s mouth thereby not causing any dummy rashes.
- Endorsed by lactation consultants
Cherry-shaped dummies are endorsed by lactation consultants and midwives because they closely mimic the breast's shape thereby promoting a natural sucking motion. Babies who have tongue tie, lip tie, and problems latching are always recommended to stick with a cherry shaped teat to assist in their babies sucking development.
Cherry Shaped Teats provide a bridge between breastfeeding and Dummy use, helping both you and your baby adjust more smoothly.
- Available in Various Sizes and Brands.
Cherry-shaped teat dummies come in a range of sizes suitable for different stages of your baby's growth. Whether you have a newborn or a teething toddler, you can find a size that fits perfectly, ensuring your baby's comfort at every age. CMC Dummies come in Size 1 0-6m, Size 2 6-18m and Size 3 18m+. Remember if your baby is teething we always recommend a teether as dummies are not made to be teethers. Teethers used in conjunction with dummies are great soothing techniques.

In conclusion, when it comes to choosing a teat dummy for your baby, the cherry-shaped design is definitely a front runner. Its natural shape, support for babies sucking development, and ease of transition make it a smart choice for both babies and parents. By opting for a cherry-shaped teat dummy, you're not only providing comfort and security to your little one but also promoting their overall well-being. It's a small but significant decision that can have a big impact on your baby's early development and happiness.
