Hevea Baby Soother - Duck - Non Toxic - Plastic Free
Hevea is the modern Danish designed soothers/pacifiers made of 100% natural rubber, a natural material free from BPA, PVC and phthalates. Babies love the smell of natural rubber and the special odour makes it easy for baby to identify and provide reassurance.
This gorgeous little pacifier comes with a cute duck design and symmetrical teat, in a stylish beautifully designed unisex box of recycled papers.
The new symmetrical shape imitates the natural nipple more than the orthodontic teat shape. So this might be easier for newborns to use, especially if they are breastfed. But it also depends on the preference of the individual child. Some babies naturally prefer one shape over the other, so you might have to try a few shapes to find your babies favorite.

… just 100% natural rubber from the Hevea Brasisliensis tree. The name "Hevea" originates from the Latin name for a genus of rubber trees, Hevea Brasiliensis.
Hevea pacifiers are different from all other pacifiers because they are produced sustainably. Hevea gives you the opportunity to give only the best to your child while at the same time taking care of the environment.
Hevea pacifiers and teethers are made of 100% natural rubber, which is a natural sap coming from the rubber tree. As it is a natural material, it can vary in colour and shape. Also as it is biodegradable, it needs to stay of out sunlight and moist environments to prolong its lifespan. This also means that it doesn’t always have the same colour and it doesn’t last forever - as with organic apples, no two look the same – that's the beauty of being natural!!! Natural rubber can be broken down physically and/or chemically by microorganisms.
As well as producing great products, Hevea have a strong natural ethic, making us love them even more:
'At Hevea™ we truly want to be sustainable. We do our best to be a responsible company and always look for innovative ways to reduce, re-use and recycle. While many other pacifiers are packed in unnecessary amounts of plastic, which endangers nature, Hevea™ products are only packaged in a beautifully designed box of recycled papers.
We use soy ink on our packaging. Soy ink is naturally low in VOCs and is made of a renewable resource, using less energy to produce than other inks, and its post-production waste is not hazardous.
We use recycled paper for the packaging. This means that the uncoated paper contains a minimum of 30% post-consumer fiber, and the coated paper contains a minimum of 10% post-consumer fiber.
WARNING! For your child’s safety.
Inspect carefully before each use.
Pull the soother in all directions.
Throw away at the first signs of damage or weakness.
Only use dedicated soother holders tested to EN 12586.
Never attach other ribbons or cords to a soother, your child may be strangled by them.
Do not leave a soother in direct sunlight or near a source of heat, or leave in disinfectant (“”sterilising solution””) for longer than recommended, as this may weaken the teat.
In the event that the soother becomes lodged in the mouth, DO NOT PANIC; it cannot be swallowed and is designed to cope with such an event. Remove from the mouth with care, as gently as possible. Do not attach to any part of the pacifier/soother (i.e around the ring, plug or through the ventilation holes) pins, ribbons or string as these can be dangerous.
Do not pull pacifier/soother apart
Do not tie the pacifier/soother tightly to strings, straps, tapes or similar things in the child’s clothing, as this could risk choking the child
The pacifier/soother is constructed, so that it cannot be swallowed by the child
Check daily that the pacifier/soother is in good condition. This is done by pulling on the various parts of the soother and checking that it is still in good condition. If there are splits or changes in the soother, it should be discarded.
BEFORE USE, thoroughly clean then sterilize the pacifier/soother by either:
Immersing the pacifier/soother in a baby-bottle sterilizing solution in accordance with the instructions for use of the sterilizing solution; or
Boiling the pacifier/soother in water for 5 min. before it is used for the first time. Then let it cool down and empty out any water inside the nipple.
The construction of Hevea allows liquid to flow into the nipple when cleaning. Please press/turn upside down the pacifier /soother to empty any water from the nipple before using it.
Always clean the pacifier before use and check that the mouthpiece (nipple) is undamaged.
Do not dip the nipple into sweet products and/or those containing sugar or into medicine, as this can contribute to the development of tooth decay and thus presents a risk of cavities in the teeth.
For both safety and hygiene reasons, the soother should be discarded after a maximum of two months use.
The pacifier/soother should be cleaned by hand or in a machine especially suitable for this, and must not be cleaned in a microwave or dishwasher.
When the pacifier/soother is not in use, it should be kept in a clean, dry place out of direct sunlight or contact with a source of direct heat.
It should be stored in a closed, clean and dry container.
Very few children are allergic to natural rubber; however, watch out for any allergic reactions, and stop any use if an allergic reaction should occur because of using the pacifier.
