PLAYTEX BABY: 3 Easy Tips on Keeping Baby Safe and Everyone Happy!

Keeping your baby happy, healthy and safe is every parent’s number one priority. Today, that means going beyond avoiding germs and baby-proofing the house. It’s important to understand baby safety issues and the safe selection and use of baby products and Playtex Baby™ has a few tips to keep in mind when choosing the right products for your little ones.

Replace pacifiers every two months

Pacifiers can get easily damaged over time with heat and certain foods, affecting its lifespan as well as usage. Inspect your baby’s pacifier regularly to check for signs of wear and tear such as rips, holes or changes to the nipple texture. If pacifier shows such signs of wear and tear, discontinue use immediately.

Latex and silicone pacifiers with different nipple shapes are the most common on the market such as the Playtex® OrthoPro® and the Playtex® Binky® from Playtex Baby. With a variety of cute pacifier designs, both you and your baby will feel calm, cool and collected.

Bottle-feed in a semi-upright position

Pediatricians recommend feeding your baby in a semi-upright position to help prevent ear infections. Bottles with angled design such as the Playtex Baby™ VentAire® bottle ensures a more comfortable bottle-feeding experience in this position for both you and baby.

The semi-upright position can also help to avoid a colicky baby if you have the right bottle. Most bottles vent air from the nipple, causing air to mix with the milk and trigger gas. The Playtex Baby VentAire products help to prevent spit-up and fussiness with an anti-colic vent at the base of the bottle that lets air flow freely while staying away from the liquid.

Keep germs at bay in the nursery

The nursery is a special place for you and baby, and the Playtex® Diaper Genie® family can help ensure your sanctuary stays hygienic and smelling sweet.

Diaper Genie® branded refills feature seven layers that work together to provide Barrier Technology to lock in germs and provides our ultimate odour protection. The Diaper Genie® Refill can hold up to 270 newborn diapers, which means less trips to the trash bin and more quality time with baby.

By going that extra step to look into the safe selection of products, parents can breathe easy knowing they considered all the facts before making the choice that suits their family’s needs.
