The 10 Best Pacifiers
This wiki has been updated 16 times since it was first published in January of 2020. Babies are a blessing from the moment they make their first appearance in the world. However, these sweet-smelling bundles of joy are not always in the best of moods, and a calming pacifier can come in handy. Whether you need to quieten your infant for a few minutes of peace, or the little one needs to be soothed back to sleep during the night, the right binky can make your life much easier.

Choosing the best pacifiers was a daunting task because we had to make sure that each option was a safe choice. There are very rigorous federal safety standards that every pacifier must meet or exceed before it can be sold to consumers. In creating this list, we chose pacis that offered the highest level of safety first - one-piece pacifiers with no risk of separating from the mouth shield. Orthodontic support is also a must when choosing a binky, so we stuck with selections, such as the Chicco PhysioForma, that encourage oral development while still being safe for your tiny one.
Since expenses are on every parent's mind, we included budget-friendly options, like the First Years Gumdrop. We also included the Ryan & Rose Cutie because it doubles as a teether. We selected products that include no accessories, such as clips, cords and stuffed animals. The use of such attachments is for the parent to decide because they can pose a hazard when not used under adult supervision.
