Place the pacifier in a bowl, and pour boiling water overtop. Let sit for 3-5 minutes. Do not submerge for longer than 5 minutes. Remove and place on a flat surface to air dry. Do not use sterilizers, microwaves or dishwashers. For optimal safety and hygiene, we recommend discarding your pacifier after 1-2 months of consistent use. Always check your pacifier before use, and discard at first signs of damage or wear.
