BinkiBear helps baby learn to sooth herself by providing extra comfort not found in the pacifier or bear alone. Combined they deliver ultimate comfort!
BinkiBear helps baby to sleep better through the night, since the BinkiBear is easy to find in the crib. Baby can also replace the pacifier all by herself, so mommy and daddy sleep through the night too!
BinkiBear helps baby travel by providing extra soothing in one easy-to-use tool.
BinkiBear is easy to locate in case baby drops it. No more losing pacifiers!
BinkiBear is lightweight, and actually lighter than most pacifier clips currently available.
BinkiBear promotes the best benefits of the pacifier without the worry of excessive attachment. Since the pacifier is attached to the bear, the child learns to use the pacifier only when it is really needed. The bear suffices for most situations, which is a more ideal tool for a child. This means that baby has less attachment to the pacifier alone, which aids in proper dental development, and creates a more promising circumstance for weaning when the time comes. Basically, BinkiBear reduces the addiction to the pacifier alone by combining it with the transitional object right from the beginning for a better soothing experience!
BinkiBear helps in weaning baby off the pacifier. By only removing the pacifier from the bear, the baby isn’t left “alone”. Baby still has her bear, which provides the comfort needed to get through the weaning process. This method reduces the emotional toll on baby and the parents!
The Task Force on Infant Sleep Position and Sudden Infant Death Syndrome* sites using pacifiers as a method to reduce the risk of SIDS. If baby wakes and desires the pacifier, BinkiBear makes it easy for baby to repalce without help.
BinkiBear helps parents discern when the baby is ready for weaning by promoting a reduction in use of the pacifier naturally in providing an alternative… The baby can choose to snuggle with the bear during the night or naptime, instead of replacing the pacifier when it falls out. Parents can see when their child is using the pacifier less, and transition smoothly into weaning.
This method of not replacing the pacifier after it has fallen out of the baby’s mouth during sleep is endorsed by American Academy of Pediatrics.
BinkiBear can aid in the reduction of SIDS. The use of a pacifier at night has been shown to reduce the risk of SIDS*. Of course, please read all the safety instructions on the website to gain the best understanding of this concept and how it relates to BinkiBear.
