My son loves it

published

Tried a few different brands and my 5 month old unfortunately wasn’t to pleased. One particular evening nothing would settle him, so my husband went out looking for a chemist after hours to try some other dummies. He came back with the avent classic dummies & he took to it straight away & finally stopped crying. I like the size of teat & the dummy as it doesn’t come anywhere near his nostrils. They are reasonable price compare to some others and have some really cute designs.

Purchased in December 2019 at Pharmacy 4 Less Physical store.

Best of the bunch

published

These are preferred by both my children. They didn't like other brands and didn't even like other Avent ones such as the soft silicone ones, they specifically had to be the original. I do think the sizings are a bit off though, my now 5 year old used the 0-6 months till just after 12months and my now 9 month old still only wants the size 0-6 because the 6-18 makes him gag and the lengths are very different not just a slight increase. So pricey but they have made a good soother. I have never had to replace them due to wear and tear only if we lose them. The babies choose the dummy that fits their shape of mouth and what they find comfortable and my kids chose a brand my family has trusted for years :)

Purchased for A$12.50.

Doesn’t glow all night

published

Same than everyone, those a great dummies but the glow in the dark is useless as it stops glowing so quick, it’s no help in the middle of the night, what a shame. Had I known I wouldn’t have purchased yet an other set of dummies. They should not advertise them as night dummies or should add a appendix explaining it only last a very short time.

Purchased in October 2019 at Big W for A$12.00.

A regular dummy - nothing glow about it

published

We’ve been using Avent dummies for about 3 months and they are great.
We were excited to see the glow in dark feature.

While the actual dummy is good (similar to other agent ones) it is not glow in the dark and they are still difficult to find in the cot at night - both for our little one and us. They shouldn’t be marketed as glow in the dark.

Baby is soothed with this dummy

published

No problems with the dummy. Certainly a huge help during teething time as my baby is soothed by the dummy. She goes to sleep with it. Even when chewing the dummy during teething, there haven't been any leaks. No problems keeping the dummy in the mouth. I would highly recommend!

Don't expect these to glow in the dark!

published

We bought these recently to help both our little one locate her dummy in the night and also to save us from scrambling around trying to find it for her. I was quite excited to find these dummy's online and thought they would be perfect for us all.
No. I am so disappointed. We've trialled them for a week now and nothing will make them glow. They are just the same as any other dummy, they just have more of an inticing title. We've now resorted to bright or block coloured ones to help us locate them easier and I have requested a refund from the supermarket where we bought them from. Don't bother until Philips actually change them to make them glow as the title suggests.

Not the Best.

published

I used these dummy's for the first 6 months. They do the job as long as you hold them in. Bubs found it difficult to keep the dummy in due to the flat teat shape. When she got bigger she managed to put the whole dummy in her mouth, it was stuck and needed me to retrieve it. After this scare I changed to a more traditional dummy and haven't had any issues with keeping the dummy in or it going in her mouth. Disappointed I didn't change brands sooner. I would not recommend these dummy's

Thanks Philips Australia Team.
It's a shame that they don't 'glow' for longer or a glow stronger as most babies sleep solidly the first 2 hours, and prob wake up after 4-6hrs.

Functional but need to replace frequently

published

Functional but needs to be replaced frequently as teat seems to wear near the plastic base. My baby enjoys using them and I like that they are orthodontically designed.

Bubs loves them!

published

I've been an early childhood educator for many years and have found most of my clients prefer these dummies. Naturally, when I had my own baby I opted for these myself. My son absolutely loves them and refuses to take anything else! A bit on the pricey side but I feel I have piece of mind using orthodontic dummies as they won't cause problems for future teeth. I also use the avent bottles (another client favourite) and they too have been fantastic so far :)

Dummy snapped in half my baby ate it!!

published

Hi there avent, I would like to let you know my daughters dummy has snapped in half and she has potentially swilled it!! The doctor can't find it because it's see through and are not sure whether to wait for it to perforate her bowel or just randomly go hunting for it. I use all your products from bottles, teats, electric sterilizer and I swear by your products however I'm very traumatised that the hard plastic could be snapped by a baby and now is potentially putting holes throughout my infants intestines and bowels.

Waste of money !

published

What a terrible product. $13 for a pair of useless dummies. I bought 4 of them and my son used them for a week only. I though he does not like dummies but when changed to happy baby dummies realized that this product is useless.
3 pieces of Happy baby dummies = $4.75 at coles
I don't recommend avent products at all as I had the same problem with avent bottles which caused reflux for my baby.

useless and unacceptance by babies

great soothers

published

Love these orthodontic soothers.
My son will take these strait away.
I tried other models & different brands but he will only have these.
I love how it doesn't cover his nose where as other models do. I love the plastic container they come in, I also love the plastic covers that cover the soother.
Only downside is that ants can crawl into the plastic soother.
This is probably the only Avent product I like & Ive tried lots!
fits my sons mouth well, I like the plastic case & the covers that go over them
only downside is ants can get into the plastic soother bit

Not as I expected

published

I got these as my baby loves his regular Avent dummies and these have the same shape so when I saw that they glowed I was stoked as it can be so had to find the dummy in the cot in the dark, and turning on a lamp or light just unsettles bub even more. I was a bit disappointed as the glow doesn't last long at all. As a dummy they are great but no better than the regular Avent as the glow dosent last.

Excellent dummy!

published

We bought a couple of different dummies when our daughter was ready to try them and the Avent ones are the only dummies she takes. They come in different sizes and I love the fact that they have a clip on cover, which fit all stages dummies. Dummy is not too big or too small for the babies mouth, it's just right and it's orthodontic. They also come in a nice range of colours/themes.
Shape, orthodontic, clip on cover, nice colour range

Good as a regular dummy

published

Although these are supposed to glow they don't really last very long. They are durable, reliable avent dummies though and by daughter hasn't chewn any holes in them yet! The only really bad thing is the clear one is really hard to see, especially in the dark against white sheets!
Durable avent dummy - same as the others

Great dummies

published

I started by bub on this one because I got a free one in a show bag! She took to it ok when she was ready and we have been using this brand ever since. They are really durable and even now that she has teeth, to this date still hasn't bitten a hole in one. They can go in the sterilisers (the avent ones anyway) and don't get water on the inside of it when you clean it,
Durable

Hi. Our almost 1 year old still prefers the 0-6 months soother. We have tried the 6-18 months a few times and he gags and seems to hate it. Is it a bad thing to continue to let him use the 0-6 months or should we really persist with the 6-18 months? Thanks.

Stick to the smaller size until your baby finds the larger one comfortable with out gagging and stays in without falling out. Both my kids were on the 0-6 for far longer than the guideline age. My son who is 1 tomorrow only moved up from 0-6 a week ago.

Classic Nightime Glow in the dark SCF176/18

Have just purchased the glow in the dark dummies only to find they DONT GLOW?!! Is there something we need to do to "activate" them?? There is nothing on the packaging. Any help would be appreciated as we were so excited about the concept, but now completely disappointed!! TIA

Hi Appleeye,

I found the same problem.
I sat them on the window ledge to absorb light in hope to 'activate' them at night but that gave off minimal glow and didn't really last long.

I rang the Philips customer hotline and I explained my disappointment with the product. See how you go. I was lucky enough that they allowed me to return to place of purchase for a refund.
Good luck!

Hi there. Thank you for your question. We're sorry to hear the soothers haven't been glowing so far and can imagine your disappointment. To activate the soothers, we advise you to expose them to light for at least a few minutes. After doing so, they should glow in the dark. If this doesn't work, please contact our Customer Care. If you're based in Australia, you can reach them on: 1300 363 391. If you're based in New Zealand, the number is: 0800 658 224.
