  • My baby does not want the new pacifier that I bought.

    This could be caused by several things. It could be that you have used the old pacifier for too long.

  • Why is the nipple clear on one pacifier and foggy on another?

    Natural rubber latex is a natural material with many positive properties like softness, high bite endurance, and tensile strength.

    However, latex is subject to natural material fluctuations which can become noticeable through a different optical appearance.

    Therefore, the nipple can vary in clearness and color. The quality or product safety is not affected thereby.

Baby Bottle

  • How to use glass baby bottles

    You can use our glass baby bottles in the same way you would use any other baby bottle. If you need guidance into how to feed your baby with a bottle or when or how to introduce a bottle to your baby, Please find the information here >

  • Is the BIBS Baby Glass Bottle BPA-free?

    Bisphenol A (BPA), bisphenol S (BPS), and polyvinyl chloride (PVC) are chemicals that can be found in some plastics.
    There have been concerns about the potentially harmful effects these chemicals can have on babies, and many countries have implemented laws that ban the use of these chemicals in all baby products. Glass baby bottles are naturally BPA, BPS, and PVC-free.

  • Can the glass bottle break?

    Our baby bottle is made of borosilicate glass which has many benefits. Among others, it is temperature- and thermal shock-resistant, durable, and much more. But even though borosilicate glass is much sturdier and harder to break than regular glass, it is still glass and can of course break if subjected to sufficiently intense force. You can read more about borosilicate glass here >

  • What does the funnel do?

    The funnel makes it easy for you to fill up the bottle with less milk/formula waste.

  • What does anti-colic mean?

    Colic is when a baby cries a lot, with no obvious cause. All newborns cry sometimes, but if your baby cries for more than 3 hours a day, 3 days a week for at least 1 week, then they may have colic. It is very common and affects about 1 in 5 babies.

    Doctors do not know what causes colic. Some suggest it is due to digestion problems or a sensitivity to something in the baby's formula or the
    breastmilk. A tip for trying to reduce colic is to help your baby swallow less air while feeding. When breastfeeding this could be trying to burp your baby
    more often, and when bottle-feeding it could be choosing a bottle with a ventilation system.

    The BIBS Baby Glass Bottle features a valve in the nipple that ensures a smooth milk flow, that reduces air swallowed while feeding.

  • Is my BIBS baby glass bottle recyclable?

    Glass can be recycled but the acceptance of glass in recycling programs varies by jurisdiction. Check your local recycling programs to find out what is recyclable in your area.

  • Can I heat the baby bottle in the microwave?

    Our glass bottle can withstand microwave heating. The plastic parts and bottle nipples cannot! However, when microwave heating milk can so-called localized overheating occur. Always mix/stir the heated milk and check milk temperature before feeding the child!

  • How to clean the baby bottle?
  • Should the latex nipple be replaced?

    Yes, like with our pacifiers we recommend a replacement of bottle nipples every 4-6 weeks for both safety and hygienic reasons.

    Keep an eye out for any changes in the surface, changes in size and shape, or rupture in the material, and replace the bottle nipple if you notice any differences.

    Natural rubber latex is a natural material and is affected by sunlight, high temperatures, and moisture which accelerates the aging process of the latex material. Therefore, the material changes its properties and can become brittle or sticky. Whenever you experience a change in the material the
    pacifier must be replaced.

  • Can I heat the baby bottle in an electric bottle heater?

    We do not recommend using an electric heater when heating the glass bottle. The bottle does not break but it may affect the print on the outside of the glass.

Swaddle

  • Is swaddling safe?

    The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) says that swaddling can encourage newborns to sleep better — if it’s done correctly and practiced in accordance with other safe sleep guidelines.

    Although swaddling comes with many great benefits, you need to make sure you're doing it right to avoid danger or discomfort for your baby.

    Follow these safety tips:

    • The swaddle should be snug, but not too tight. You should be able to place two to three fingers between your baby’s chest and the blanket, and the blanket should be loose around the hips so the baby can move its legs freely. Swaddling your baby too tightly may affect his or her mobility and development.

    • Also, the swaddle should not be too loose, so it unwraps during sleep and ends up cover the baby’s face.

    • Always lay your baby down on his or her back after swaddling.

    • Stop swaddling as soon as your baby can roll over on its own.

    • Never overdress your baby underneath the swaddle since it can lead to overheating.

  • When to stop swaddling?

    There is a time-limit to swaddling. When babies can roll over on their own you should stop swaddling.

  • Can all babies be swaddled?

    Not all babies like to be swaddled. Some seem to find swaddles restrictive and will try to fight their way out. If your baby is always trying to wriggle out of the swaddle, or cry when being swaddled you should stop swaddling. There’s no need to force your baby into a swaddle if he or she doesn’t like it.

Care and cleaning

  • How should I clean the pacifier and how often?

    You can find answers regarding how and how often you should clean the pacifiers in our Cleaning Guide >>

  • Why is my latex pacifier getting sticky on the surface?

    Natural rubber latex is a natural material and is affected by sunlight, high temperatures, and moisture which accelerates the aging process of the latex material.

    Therefore, the material changes its properties and can become brittle or sticky.

    Whenever you experience a change in the material, the pacifier must be replaced.

  • How long can I use a pacifier?

    It depends on how often it is in use, but we recommend a replacement every 4-6 weeks.

    Keep an eye out for any changes in the surface, changes in size and shape, or rupture in the material and replace the pacifier if you notice any differences.

    When your baby has teeth, make sure to pull the nipple in all directions before use and replace the pacifier at the first sign of damage or weakness.

    Do not use a pacifier that shows any changes in color or other irregularities. Because it is natural rubber latex, the nipple may expand over time.

  • Can I put my pacifiers in the dishwasher?

    The pacifiers should not be cleaned in the dishwasher as this may damage the material.

    Furthermore, most dishwashers do not reach temperatures high enough to sufficiently sterilize the pacifiers.

  • Can I use UV, microwave, or other sterilizers for my BIBS?

    We advise you not to use UV sterilizers for your latex pacifiers, as latex is a natural material and consequently undergoes a natural aging process, which can be influenced by external forces such as UV light.

    Therefore, never use a UV sterilizer for our BIBS latex pacifiers as it will damage the material.

    Regarding electric steam sterilizers we have not tested our pacifiers in all these different devices and cannot guarantee that the latex will not break due to the high temperatures.

    Therefore, we cannot recommend these for sterilization.

    Concerning microwave sterilization be aware that latex will break down if the temperature exceed 100°C.

    Silicone endure higher temperatures that latex, however our general recommendations are that to use microwave sterilizations you must check the manufacturer’s instructions in relation to heat and watts, to make sure the temperature does not exceed 100°C.

    In most microwaves the pacifiers must be heated for a maximum of 60 seconds at max. 800W. Otherwise temperatures will exceed 100°C.

    Remember to put the pacifiers in water in a sterilization box made for the purpose. Never place the pacifiers in the microwave without!

  • There is water inside the nipple after cleaning?

    After cleaning it is not unusual that water remains in the nipple.

    This is due to the fact that all our pacifier nipples are equipped with a valve, letting out air when the baby closes down on the nipple.

    This ventilation system causes the air from inside the nipple to be pushed out through the valve thereby flattening the nipple to shape naturally after the baby's oral cavity.

    The valve is also the reason why water can be present inside the nipple after cleaning and sterilization.

    If this is the case, simply just squeeze the nipple flat to press out the excess water. If water drops remain in the nipple, just let the pacifier air-dry.

  • Why does the pacifier make a sound when in use?

    Sometimes, when water remains in the nipple after sterilization it can cause a sound when the pacifier is used by your baby. There is no harm in a little water inside the nipple.

  • Can I freeze the pacifiers when my baby is teething?

    We would advise you not to freeze your pacifiers with or without water inside for two reasons:

    • Natural rubber latex nipples are not intended for that kind of use. Therefore, we cannot ensure that the material or the

    material properties stay the same after such treatment.

    • You should always avoid skin contact with frozen objects. Direct skin contact and even indirect skin contact with ice can cause skin injuries and frostbite.
