All GOLDI-Sauger at a glance

Soothers come into particularly intensive contact with the baby’s delicate, permeable oral mucosa. This is why the requirements for soothers are particularly high: in terms of their safety, their freedom from toxins and allergies, their physiological shape and hygiene.

5 reasons to choose GOLDI

The shield is made entirely of natural rubber. It is soft and straight. This gives the lip and mouth muscles the necessary freedom of movement for active and intensive muscle activity.

The soft gripping loop is flexible and prevents chafing on the face in the sleeping position. The straight direction of the loop supports the grasping reflex.

The large ventilation holes in the shield prevent sticky suction and help to avoid reddening of the skin caused by saliva. This prevents skin rashes around the mouth.

The suction part is soft and pliable and its symmetrical shape gives the tongue the necessary space for active tongue movement, which has a favourable effect on the entire perception of the oral cavity.

There is a tensile connection between the shield and the teat part so that the soother cannot disintegrate into its component parts.

Correct soothing is important

GOLDI-Sauger (soothers) are a very good help in satisfying the natural need to suck and preventing the risk of jaw misalignment and palate deformation caused by intensive thumb sucking. When choosing the shape of the teat, the symmetrical natural shape is preferable, because with this shape the tongue, as with breast sucking, is located under the sucking part and thus helps to avoid sucking confusion. A slope at the end of the teat shape causes the tongue to slide against the slope and direct its pressure forwards, which has a negative effect on sucking behaviour during breastfeeding.

Around 80% of children have the habit of turning the soother in their mouth and use the slanted teat the wrong way round. All these findings prompt midwives to recommend the natural shape with a straight shield to mothers right from the start.

GOLDI has the right size for every stage of growth. Because babies who are already accustomed to a teat with a slanted shape can develop a “nipple confusion”, GOLDI offers this teat shape with a straight shield.

Questions and answers

The most important questions and answers about GOLDI-Sauger.

The high quality of the natural rubber gives the baby a close-to-skin feeling for natural soothing and comfort. Natural rubber is the perfect basis for hygiene because it does not provide a breeding ground for germs and nothing can stick to the GOLDI mould, as if it were made from one piece. Soothers made entirely from natural rubber are highly recommended for babies who already have teeth, as they can bite into silicone soothers and swallow particles.

GOLDI soothers are a very good aid in satisfying the natural need to suck and preventing the risk of poor tooth alignment and palate deformation due to intensive thumb sucking. When choosing the shape of the teat, the symmetrical natural shape is preferable, because with this shape the tongue, as with breast sucking, is located under the sucking part and thus helps to avoid sucking confusion.

The straight shield of the GOLDI soother is exemplary and important for the freedom of movement of the lip and facial muscles. Please note that the typical, rigid shields, which are bent backwards with a flatter design, constrict the lip and facial muscles. This causes these muscles to slacken and, on the one hand, reinforces the soother habit due to a lack of “saturation” and, on the other, enables unfavourable mouth breathing later on.

The nipple and areola are stretched so that they reach backwards into the mouth. The sucking function is more of a “milking” function and consists of a far-reaching advance, strong closing, rapid retraction and swallowing. These up and down movements train the muscles involved and are primarily responsible for correct tooth and jaw positioning and palate development.

The sucking reflex and the infant’s need to suck are innate and vital. Without this behaviour, the newborn would starve to death. In addition to feeding, sucking also has a calming and relaxing effect on the baby. For breastfeeding mothers, the baby’s need to suck more than is necessary to feed can be stressful. If this purely soothing and exploratory sucking is breastfed with a baby bottle, the baby will get used to the constant supply of food as a means of comforting, relaxing and calming down.

In the third month of life, the infant prefers to suck on familiar objects. In this phase, the sucking habit without food intake begins to manifest itself, with the satisfaction of the sucking instinct taking centre stage.

In order to fulfil his need to suck, the baby chooses between finger sucking or thumb sucking, which has negative consequences for tooth and jaw development.

Clean GOLDI under running water after use. For babies up to 6 months, sterilise as follows: Place GOLDI in boiling water for no longer than 2 minutes and submerge several times with a wooden spoon. Then place on a cloth that has been cleaned in the boil wash cycle. Store the dry GOLDI in a clean container. Store the container away from sunlight and heat. Do not place the GOLDI in a disinfectant solution. The GOLDI is made of natural rubber and is therefore not suitable for cleaning in a vaporiser (steam steriliser), microwave or dishwasher.
