I first have to say that I **love** the designs that MAM has.  They have *such* a huge variety of styles and I really do love that in a baby product (call me superficial, it is what it is!)  I also love that they are a "fuller nipple", if you will, unllike some of the other pacifiers that are very flat or angled back farther than one would expect.  I have found that my daughters prefers this type, seemingly because it is more 'present'.  This is not her favorite pacifier, but it is definitely her second favorite and I am thankful that they are very easy to find in the case that I can't find a NUK brand pacifier.

Personally, I love these, but it is all about what my daughter seems to prefer!  They are cute, they are easy to find, they have a great little 'carry case' that they come in and they are around the same price as most name-brand pacifiers (in my opinion this price is expensive, but, if you are going for name-brand, then it is reasonable).

I also like that these do not have the "handle" that other pacifiers have.  My daughter can still easily take them out on her own, but she, for some reason, is less likely to with these.

Overall, I definitely recommend these pacifiers, but try out several to see what your child prefers.

So I use avent pacifiers. I tried using MAM when she first came home but she didn't like them and then I tried again when she was 4 mo and without realizing it used a 0-3 mo pacifier, when I gave it to her and walked out of the room a minute later she screamed bloody murder and when I ran into the room she had the pacifier wedged sideways in her mouth.

These pacfiers can be very age specific, with the avent one I can give her a 0-6 mo one and she's 7 mo, but with the MAM one you need to replace it once they hit 3 mo if you're using a 0-3 mo one. They also seem kind of sharp they aren't thick and rounded like the avent and they don't have the little loop thing for a pacifier holder, you'd actually have to buy a specialty holder that complies with these.

This product scared the crap out of me and I won't use them ever again, but to each their own, babies like what they like and although I had problems with it, some parents adore these.

Mam Night Time Pacifiers are AWESOME!

By 

from Provo, UT

Comments about MAM Start Pacifier:

My child did not come home from the hospital liking mam pacifiers but several months later I discovered the best kept pacifier secret...Mam Night Time Pacifiers!!! These are like other Mam pacifiers in shape and style and are made starting for two months and up. They are livesavers in the middle of the night when mom and baby both need there rest and you can't find that comforting other pacifier. Mam night time pacifiers center circle glows in the dark and makes for a quick find for mom or baby to easily put back in the baby's mouth and continue sleeping. Because of SIDS guidlines babys should not sleep with pacifier clips and so I found this the only easy solution to loosing a pacifier in the dark. If you find that over time your pacifer does not seem to be glowing as much as it did before all you need to do is the old "hold the glow part next to the light trick" and you will have a brightly glowing pacifier once again. I found the set I got for my daughter to withstand lots of use and lots of boiling to sterlize over the course of a year or so and it is still glowing strong!

MAM pacifier is our pick

By 

from Sanborn, IA

Comments about MAM Start Pacifier:

We have four children and the only pacifier we've tried and used is the MAM. We started using it because that is the brand that the hospital gave our oldest in the hospital. I was nursing and was worried that using a pacifier might result in nipple confusion but thankfully that was not the case for us. I used this pacifier for all our children while nursing and haven't had any of those problems. One thing that I would change is that unless you purchase the "string" to go along with it, it isn't very easy to carry without putting your fingers on the nipple. We do use the string when we are in the car to avoid loosing the pacifier, but find the older he gets he can easily pull the pacifier off or when he waves his arms, sometimes his arm pulls the string and the pacifier popls out of his mouth.

MAM Pacifiers are all my daughters use!

By 

from Evington, VA

Comments about MAM Start Pacifier:

When I was pregnant with my first daughter, we bought several kinds of pacifiers - not sure which one(s) she would like or end up using (none of which were MAM pacifiers). We brought a couple kinds with us to the hospital when I had her and then the hospital gave us one of the "typical" hospital pacifiers (that you can put your finger in) as well as a MAM pacifier to try. Right away she seemed to like the MAM pacifier over any of the others and sure enough, after we got home, that's the only one she would use. So off we went to the store to get more MAM pacifiers and all the others we bought when I was pregnant went back in a drawer! Now we have another baby and same as the first, MAM pacifiers are the only things she uses!

my babies have loved these - and I love it when they are happy!

By 

from Columbus, OH

Comments about MAM Start Pacifier:

I know so many mother who swear by Nuk brand pacifiers, but I highly recommend checking out Mam brand pacifiers before you go out and a buy a ton of Nuk ones. I personally felt that the Nuk brand ones created a mouth shape that made it tricky for baby to go between breastfeeding and pacifier. Mam brand is great for breastfeeding babies. All of my kids loved Mam brand. They were not too expensive, which was nice since pacifiers are easily lost. I like that they came in different sizes so I wasn't shoving a huge tip into my baby's mouth. Also, another side benefit was that I personally love all the cute designs you could find with Mam brand pacifiers. Cute sayings, adorable prints and bright colors! If something has to be on my baby's face, I at least want it to be CUTE! One downside for many is that Mam brand are not compatible with most pacifier clips. I never used the clips much, so this didn't really bother me. I do know that you can find clips for Mam brand in the store, though. Also, there are some cute boutique-like ones from different shops on etsy.

MAM pacifier is the only one my baby will take!

By 

from Chicago, IL

Comments about MAM Start Pacifier:

I love the MAM pacifiers. We tried several different brands and this was the only one my daughter liked - she would spit out the Soothies and cry when we tried to give her the Nuk. If you've had a screaming baby that wants to use your breast like a pacifier, you know how important it is to find an alternative that actually works.

We waited until she was about 2 weeks old (after breastfeeding was established) and she really took to the MAM pacifier. I went and bought backups because I was terrified to be without one - it was like a magic trick! If she was sleepy or cranky, we'd just pop it in and she would calm down immediately. The best part is that the pacifier actually stayed in her mouth. And because both sides work, you don't have to fumble around trying to find which side is supposed to be 'up.'

They have some cute designs, too. They even have ones that glow in the dark, which I can imagine would be *very* helpful in the middle of the night. My baby is now 5 months old and still spits out every brand of pacifier except for MAM.

Great Binky!

By 

from Catlettsburg, KY

Comments about MAM Start Pacifier:

The Mam silicone pacifier is our little one’s favorite binky. She has several brands to choose from and she isn’t as picky ask some babies but overall the Mam brand silicone binky is her favorite. They are designed well and they do not seem to pop out of babies’ mouth as easily as some pacifiers such as the soothie brand ones they give you at the hospital. I love the artistic designs the mam comes in. That is really spectacular. They are both pretty and artsy and there are many colors to choose from. We got the dual pack that comes in two girl colors. One is dark pink and the other is white and pink. The butterfly shaped outside is pretty as well. You can purchase a matching Mam pacifier keeper that attached to your baby’s clothing to keep the binky from getting lost or getting dirty by hitting the ground but we do not use that. I am kind of afraid of having something like that attached even under close supervision.

Best pacifier

By 

from Oak Harbor, WA

Comments about MAM Start Pacifier:

MAM makes the best overall pacifiers out there!! I tried about five different brands and styles and this is the one my son liked the best. I brought these to the hospital when he was born and he still preferred these to the others I tried later on from birth to when he was weaned from the pacifier a few years later. I really like that the nipple size varies according to age, I think that is better for the baby and or child. I like that they are BPA free and are made from silicone. The silicone just seems more durable than the laytex pacifiers to me anyways. MAM has a large variety of colors and or styes for their pacifiers. I think MAM has the cutest designs on their pacifiers by far! They are styling! They are easy to clean and are carried pretty much anywhere that has pacifiers. I plan on using MAM's again with my second child, I hope that he likes them as much as his big brother did!

Our baby loves this pacifier

By 

from Los Angeles, CA

Comments about MAM Start Pacifier:

MAM pacifiers are the best.  This was the only pacifier our baby would originally take.  I think this is the case for his cousins as well.  There are so many different cute options for pacifier designs.  I love all the different options for boys, girls and neutral patterns.  The pacifier has never irritated our baby’s skin or mouth.  I do not know if my baby would have taken at pacifier if there was not this brand.  We tried a lot of other brands before she would finally take one.  What a relief!  It is also nice to know that MAM pacifiers are BPA free.  They are also designed to be safe for our baby.  I do not like that they are so expensive particularly when they seem to get lost a lot.  The box also recommends replacing them after a few months.  Also, the baby will outgrow them.  I like that MAM makes different sizes as well for different ages of the baby.  I am glad our baby liked these pacifiers because it is fun to have so many different design options.

Baby's Binky of Choice!

By 

from Virginia Beach, VA

Comments about MAM Start Pacifier:

I had originally bought Nuk pacifiers for our daughter before she was even born.  The happy day came when she arrived and she did not like the Nuk binkies!  I was a distressed first time Mom who needed her sweet, little baby off her boob without the baby screaming!  The Nuk binkies were a little too big for her mouth (even though she was a hefty 8 and a half pounds) and just didn't want to take them.  I shopped around for different options and MAM pacifiers were it.  She took the MAM immediately. I was happy and relieved (my breasts thank you, creators of the MAM) and baby seemed pretty darn happy as well.  The only thing I disliked about the MAM was that there was no little handle to attach a pacifier clip to.  Sure, you can buy a clip especially made for the MAM, but I always lost the attachment part.  I ended up just attaching the clip to the actual binky, inside the little holes (which you cannot do with the 6 months + binkies, but at that point, she figured out how to just unattach the clip anyway).  Anywho, I loved these and so did my baby!
