This wiki has been updated 22 times since it was first published in May of 2018. Pacifier clips are a must for parents who want to prevent their little one’s binky from falling to the floor or getting lost. They come in a variety of stylish prints and patterns and in woven, beaded, and braided designs, and many can also be attached to small toys and teethers. For safety’s sake, do not let babies use these without adult supervision, and be sure to take them away at bedtime.

Editor's Notes

May 07, 2020:

In today’s update, we rounded out the list by adding in models of various materials and textures, so you’re sure to find one that attaches securely to your child’s pacifier and is both comfortable and stylish. The newly added Little Sprouts 2 in 1 gets high marks in the safety department, first and foremost. It’s been independently tested by a global company that’s approved by the Consumer Product Safety Commission. It consists of a strand of food-grade silicone beads in your choice of a blue or a pink color scheme, and both feature two newly added beads with a stylish gray marble pattern. The beads come in multiple textures to help massage and soothe the gums of little ones who may be experiencing some discomfort from teething. For another beaded set, we added the Loulou Lollipop Silicone, which comes in your choice of three fun neutral color options, and its clip is made of stainless steel that won’t rust.

For a bead-free, cloth choice, we added in the Mam 2-Count, which is made by an established brand in pacifiers and other baby products. This set of two come with fabric strings connected to silicone rings that are designed to attach to either button- or ring-style pacifiers made by Mam or a variety of other manufacturers. Their plastic clips feature a friendly frog and a smiling tractor. Another durable polyester strap model is the BooginHead Newborn, which features bright green polka dots on a white background, so it’s easy to find if it drops under the crib.

If you prefer a braided design that provides a lot of texture, which teething babies tend to enjoy, look to the BFS-Dream 4 Pack, which comes with four neutral, solid colors. They’re made of soft polyester that won’t irritate your baby’s tender skin. For a clip that doubles as a toy, check out the Bearington Collection Lil' Spout, which features a cute plush elephant rattle that’s attached to the strap that, in turn, attaches to your pacifier. It’s also available in many other designs that include a giraffe, an owl, and a unicorn. To make room for some of the new additions today, we removed some selections, including the Lofca Teething, amidst some reports of the pieces breaking apart, and the Liname Unique, the metal components of which can rust over time.

To avoid the risk of strangulation, never allow these to become wrapped around a baby’s neck. Adult supervision is necessary at all times when a child uses them. Please inspect them for damage or wear and tear before giving them to your baby each time, and discard them if any such damage is found. Take them away from little ones at bedtime, and don’t leave them alone with your child in the crib.
