JollyPop Size and Age Guidelines
JollyPop pacifiers comply with U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission standards for pacifiers.
Preemie Size: For use in the hospital or by recommendation of your doctor or NICU caregiver.
0-3 Month Size: For newborns, without teeth. Loop shaped handle with nubs.
JollyPop+ Size: For babies beginning to teethe. Stronger silicone nipple. Loop shaped handle with nubs.
If your baby has teeth or is teething: Pacifiers are not designed to endure the wear and tear of baby teeth. Check the pacifier for signs of wear due to chewing before each use. If there are any tears, especially in the nipple area, discard the pacifier and discontinue use, replace with a new pacifier, or introduce a teether.
It is up to parents to decide at what age their baby should stop using a pacifier. However, if your baby can fit the entire JollyPop in his or her mouth, discontinue use.
Q When I order JollyPop, is it ready for use without cleaning?
Yes, packaged JollyPops are clean and ready to use.
Q How many JollyPops do I need?
Babies become accustomed to JollyPop pacifier and often refuse to switch to a different brand. We suggest you keep a few on hand in case some
get lost. For the best value choose the 10 Pack or the Value Pack.
Q My baby got the Preemie size JollyPop in the NICU — can I use it at home?
Yes, if your pediatrician or NICU caregiver recommends using the Preemie size at home. Most preemies should transition to the 0-3 month size
JollyPop for home use.
Q What size is recommended for Preemies that are discharged to home?
We recommend the 0-3m size JollyPop for Preemies discharged to home. The only difference is the Preemie JollyPop nipple size is smaller and the
handle is a tab-style (not a loop).
Q Can JollyPop be used by breastfeeding babies?
JollyPop has a natural nipple shape that may help avoid “nipple confusion.” Many breastfeeding moms have written to tell us that the JollyPop
nipple is good for breastfeeding babies and for babies that do not root well.
Q When is it recommended to use a pacifier?
The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) published guidelines recommending pacifier use at naptime or bedtime to help reduce the incidence of SIDS. http://www.aap.org/en-us/about-the-aap/aap-pressroom/ Pages/AAP-Expands-Guidelines-for-Infant-Sleep-Safety-and-SIDS-Risk-Reduction.aspx

Both JollyPop 0-3 and JollyPop+ have nubs on the handle. The JollyPop nipple is not designed for teething.
Q When my baby is starting to teethe is it ok to continue using JollyPop?
We recommend you offer JollyPop+ and a teether. The nubs on the JollyPop handle are designed for babies to chew. The JollyPop+ nipple is made of stronger silicone to last longer when babies are beginning to teethe. The nipple is not designed to be a teether. If your baby has teeth or is teething:
check the pacifier for signs of wear due to chewing before each use. If there are any tears, especially in the nipple area, discard the pacifier and
discontinue use. Replace with a new pacifier, or introduce a teether.

Wash regularly in hot water with mild detergent; rinse thoroughly before giving to baby. To sanitize, place in boiling water for two minutes. Let it
cool before giving to baby. Some parents put JollyPops in the dishwasher or use a home sterilizer. All these methods are safe.
Q How long can a pacifier be used?
We recommend replacing JollyPop after 2 months of use for safety and hygiene reasons. The pacifier should be replaced even earlier if it is damaged in any way. It is recommended that you inspect the pacifier carefully before each use by pulling it in all directions to check its safety.
Q How do I know my pacifier is safe to use?
We recommend that you always manually check the pacifier before giving it to your child:
Inspect carefully before each use, especially when the child has teeth.
• Pull the pacifier in all directions.
• Insure that there are no hairline cracks in the product.
• Always use this product under adult supervision.
• Discard at the first signs of damage or weakness.
Q How should I attach a pacifier clip to JollyPop?
You can safely attach a pacifier clip to the loop-shaped handle. NEVER attach anything to the rim of a pacifier or block the pacifier holes. All
approved pacifiers have these holes. If your baby swallows a pacifier, the holes ensure your baby can breathe until you get medical help.

It is up to parents to decide at what age their baby should stop using a pacifier.
If your baby can fit the entire JollyPop in his or her mouth, discontinue use.
Q Can babies swallow the pacifier?
JollyPop complies with safety standards and size regulations for pacifiers. In rare cases, babies can manage to squeeze the entire pacifier in their
mouths. Should the pacifier become lodged in baby's mouth, remove the pacifier as gently as possible by grabbing the pacifier handle or nipple. It
is designed to be easily and safely removed.
