Answers
Why is the latex nipple part of a pacifier bigger on a used pacifier than on a new one?
Latex is a natural material which changes according to outside circumstances. When the pacifier has been used for a longer period of time, the latex softens due to heat and the more porous the rubber is the more liquid it absorbs and the nipple part expands. That is why the nipple part is bigger on a pacifier that has been used than on a new one.
It is recommended that you change pacifiers every 4-8 weeks, and it is very important to check the pacifiers regularly.

Why does it take '8-12 business days' for delivery?
Once you've placed your order, we have the challenge of custom-imprinting them and getting them to you as quickly as possible. Deliveries take approximately 8-12 business days, which depends on which day of the week you order and how fast the import and mailing process takes. We appreciate your patience and are continually working on ways to quicken the process.We are sending the pacifiers from Denmark.

I need MyPacifiers as a gift quickly, is there anything you can do to speed up delivery?
We carry Designer Pacifiers, ready to ship immediately upon your purchase. Click on the Designer Pacifiers tab in our MyPacifier.com shop. Personalized pacifiers require extra time because they are all custom-imprinted.

Are MyPacifiers BPA-free?
Yes. Bisphenol A (BPA), is getting a lot of attention in the press recently. Some retail outlets in the USA are phasing out plastic baby bottles and all baby feeding products containing Bisphenol A (BPA). MyPacifier.com does not sell baby bottles or any other baby feeding products, our products are personalized pacifiers. Why would this make any difference? BPA is in all Polycarbonate products and therefore also in some of our pacifiers listed with Polycarbonate as an ingredient (ingredients are listed on each MyPacifier.com Shop pacifier product page).

The research getting all the press attention has shown that BPA is only a concern when baby bottles are heated time and time again over an extended period of time. This takes place over the two-to-three year life cycle of baby bottles. During this period, research has shown that BPA can go directly from the bottle into the milk which the baby drinks. On the other hand, pacifiers have much shorter lifespan than baby bottles (see our directions) and therefore BPA release is not an issue. No research to date has shown any hazard of BPA release through pacifier use. Our pacifiers are made by the best pacifier manufacturers in Europe, companies that have won numerous awards for high quality. Safety of their products is of the utmost concern for those companies and ours. If you are still concerned about BPA and polycarbonate in pacifiers, select from our many BPA-free MyPacifier Personalized Pacifiers. Each pacifier product page lists ingredients in our MyPacifier.com Shop, and you can clearly see which ones contain Polycarbonate or Polypropylene.

Which is the better choice, silicone or latex?
Both silicone and latex pacifier nipples have advantages, and the best decision is usually left up to baby. Silicone is a bit stiffer and sturdier, will not retain odors, and cleans up easily. Latex is a bit softer, and perhaps a bit more natural in feel than silicone. Latex is soft in baby's mouth and baby may like the way it retains scents. Latex is also harder for baby to bite through.

Are the materials in MyPacifier Personalized Pacifiers safe?
MyPacifiers were invented by Pia Callesen in Denmark. Pia initially invented them for her own children, and she picked the highest qualified manufacturers to produce MyPacifiers. In fact, the producers have won awards for their safe, high-quality pacifiers. The pacifiers are made up of pure Polypropylene plastic, and the parts are welded together using ultrasound waves, no glue or anything else is added. The name is permanently engraved in the pacifier, and no chemicals are added in this process either. The mouthpieces are made of 100% pure latex or silicone. All pacifiers are EN Standard 1400 approved and exceed quality standards set by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission?s Requirements for Pacifiers (16 C.F.R. Part 1511).

Yes.

Can I buy just one MyPacifier Personalized Pacifier?
At this time, we don't sell individual MyPacifier Personalized Pacifiers. This is due to the complexity of the imprint machinery set up, importing and then having to package them and ship to you. As you might imagine, it is already considerable amount of work to produce thousands of these custom-made products, each set being different for each customer. We believe $12.50 for a set of two Avent MyPacifiers or $15 for three-MyPacifier sets is a VERY good price for a custom-made personalized items! The price is even better when you realize we produce a luxury item. Our prices are certainly in the baby shower gift category (and there are discounts when you buy more than one packet at a time). While we don't sell personalized pacifiers one at a time, we do sell our Designer Pacifiers individually. Just click on the Designer Pacifier tab in our MyPacifier.com Shop.

Why was my credit card purchase declined?
Bank safety measures are very stringent. For example, if you put in a cell phone number instead of your home phone number, the purchase may be declined. This is also true for your home mailing address. Everything has to match exactly with the information you have provided your credit card company. If you have moved, changed your phone number, or any other information, make sure your credit card company has the latest information. We hope you try to purchase again, as many times a declined purchase is the result of a simple typo or the input of incorrect information.

Why is there a 'charge' on my credit card after the payment was declined?
Failed purchase attempts may show up on your statement with the word 'pending.' It is not a charge and it will eventually expire. The order did not go through and we can't 'capture' the charge. How long it stays there will depend on your bank, each bank has a different time frame. When an order goes through properly, you will receive an e-mail order confirmation from us when the purchase is approved.

Water sometimes gets inside the nipple of the MyPacifier, is this a defect?
The vast majority of all pacifiers in the world market are 'air vent pacifiers.' That air vent is what has allowed water inside the nipple and it is perfectly normal. The pacifiers must be able to take in air and water to prevent children from developing bad tooth positioning. If water gets into the nipple during boiling, it can be gently pressed out afterwards and the nipple will fill with air again. MyPacifier Personalized Pacifiers were developed by a young mother trying to prevent germ sharing for her children. She wanted the very best quality for her children and her customer?s children. She was very careful about the selection of which pacifier products she wanted to imprint for MyPacifiers. Our manufacturer's pacifiers have won numerous awards for being amongst the best in the world.
