The round and cherry-shaped dummy is a classic dummy where both teat and shield are roundly shaped.
Some children prefer this shape over any other shape. The explanation is, that this shape is very close to the shape of a mothers breast, and the round dummies as a result feels more natural and soothing to the child. Many midwives and nurses recommends this type of dummy, because of these exact qualities.
Another advantage of this shape is that it is very easy for children to keep the dummy in their mouth. Dummies of other shapes often have smaller teats and are more difficult to hold on to and hence they are more easily lost or dropped.
The shield faces outward which ensures an absolute minimum of skin irritation.
Natural Latex or Natural Rubber Latex as it is also called is a 100 % natural material free of harmful additives. Natural Latex stems from the rubber tree and has an easy recognizable yellow colour.
Natural Latex is more elastic than silicone which makes it suitable for children that bite into their pacifiers. Due to the material’s organic origins combined with a relatively low heat tolerance Natural Latex deteriorates faster than silicone.
