Top 10 baby soothers for 2021

Hours and hours of daily patting, shushing, rocking, bouncing, and cuddling a baby in the hopes of settling them can sometimes seem frustratingly futile. Babies arrive with a natural biological sucking reflex, so offering a soother, dummy, or pacifier can be a wonderful tool to help soothe an unsettled baby.

There are countless soothers to choose from so, we’ve listened to the opinions and reviews of our lovely community of Newbornbaby parents, and put together this list to help narrow it down for you. Then, whichever one you choose just needs to get your discerning baby’s tick of approval (hint: you might need to try more than a couple of different designs).
