A torn or broken dummy poses a choking hazard. Inspect carefully before each use. Pull the teat in all directions. Throw away at the first sign of damage or weakness.
A cord or ribbon attached to a dummy poses a strangulation hazard. Do not attach a dummy to your child’s clothing.
Your Bibs dummies should be thoroughly cleaned and sterilised before use, for example by boiling the dummy in water for 5 minutes (be careful not to boil for more than 5 minutes). Microwave and other sterilisation methods may weaken the natural rubber teat more quickly. Over-sterilising may also damage or weaken your Bibs dummies. Water may get into the rubber teat because of the vent hole. Squeeze the dummy to remove any possible trapped water.
Dummies have a limited life and must be inspected carefully before each use, especially when the child has teeth. For example, you should test it by pulling the teat in all directions and throw it away at the first sign of damage or weakness. For safety and hygiene reasons your Bibs dummies should be replaced after 4-6 weeks of use.
Do not dip the teat in sweet substances (eg, honey, syrups or jam) as this can lead to tooth decay.
Pins, ribbons or string should not be attached to any part of the Bibs dummies (eg, around the ring, plug or through the ventilation holes) as these can be strangulation hazards. Strangulation hazards include the cutting off of blood supply to fingers and limbs.
Decorations should not be added to Bibs dummies as they may detach and the child could choke on them.
Carers should be aware that, in the event that the dummy becomes lodged in the mouth, it cannot be swallowed and is designed to cope with such an event. In this case it should be removed from the mouth with care and as gently as possible.
Bibs dummies should not be left in direct sunlight or near a source of heat when not in use and should not be sterilised for longer than recommended as it may weaken the teat.
Bibs dummies should be stored in a dry, covered container when not intended to be used immediately after sterilisation. If your Bibs dummies packaging contains a batch number, please retain it for future reference.
