My first daughter never used a pacifier but my second can’t leave home without her “paci” and “Bunny”.  We are working on saying goodbye to her beloved MAM pacifier but she isn’t quite ready to part with it.  She uses it when she takes a nap or to help her fall asleep at night.  MAM products have been a big part of our life, whether we were using a bottle or a pacifier. Both of my girls loved the shape of the nipple and my youngest would only take a MAM pacifier.  In addition to having a great shape and a soft nipple, they come in a variety of adorable designs.   Recently, the MAM Perfect Pacifier, the Mini Air Pacifier and the MAM Trainer won the 2013 National Parenting Publications Awards which puts them on an elite list of “must-have” products for parents.

MAM Perfect     


The MAM Perfect Pacifier was recognized as it provides a perfect start, especially for newborns.  Its innovative design incorporates an extra thin, super-soft and flexible nipple specially engineered to reduce the risk of misaligned teeth.  The unique Dento-Flex™ nipple neck is 60% thinner and 3 times softer than those of comparable pacifiers*; the thinner, softer nipple provides less pressure on baby’s jaw and teeth to help reduce the risk of jaw deformations and malocclusions.  Extra small and lightweight, MAM Perfect is available for babies age 0-6 months and age 6 + months.  Suggested retail price: $5.99 each.

 MAM Mini Air    


A mini version of the award winning MAM Air pacifier, the MAM Mini Air features a lightweight shield curved for maximum comfort, Ultra Soft Silicone Nipple to stay securely and comfortably in baby’s mouth due to the anti-slip texture and symmetrical nipple ideal for baby’s jaw development.  Wide openings in the shield provide extra air flow allowing for baby’s skin to breathe and the Mini Air comes in a reusable storage case that can be placed in the microwave to sterilize pacifiers.  Suggested retail price: $5.99

MAM Trainer   


The MAM Trainer cup was recognized for features including the cup’s small handles ideal for babies learning to become more independent.  A soft spout helps ease baby’s transition from sucking to drinking.  Available in an 8 ounce size and recommended for babies age 4+ months.  Suggested retail price:  $6.99.


For more than 20 years, the National Parenting Publications Awards (NAPPA) has been the go-to resource for the best products for families.
