    Came in a 2 pack, the box can be used to sterilise the soothers in, in the microwave. My little one was breast fed and this soother was wonderful as it's shaped a bit like a breast. He liked to just hold it in his mouth as he fell asleep. He also used it when he switched to bottles, the teats are shaped like the tommee tippee teats, so the transition was very smooth.

    These specific dummies are excellent as they are the same as the teet’s on a tommie tippie bottle and therefore easy for the baby to adjust to a dummy. Unfortunately some dummy clips wont fit this type of dummy as where the slit is not big enough. Otherwise, perfect dummies.

    My baby hates a dummy and I’ve got some many for him to try as some nights he wakes up and the only thing that can calm him is a bottle but he doesn’t drink anything. So when I saw these I had to get them and he has been calming himself down in the night now as he can just put this in and fall back to sleep. They do different sizes and they are just brilliant. I cannot rave about these enough

    I had read lots of fantastic reviews about these dummies when my little boy was only a few weeks old. We were breastfeeding so we didn't introduce a dummy until he was about 6 weeks old, however he just did not take to a dummy. But these were designed for breastfed babies so I took a leap of faith and bought these hoping he'd take to these but they just didn't stay in. He kept pushing them out with his tongue, or they just fell out too. I was disappointed as I thought he'd have taken to them but he really disliked them and ended up taking to the original Tommee Tippee dummies in the end. I'd recommend them to people to try though as I don't think there's anything wrong with them, I just think your baby will take to what they like and my little boy did not like these one in particular.

    Initially I didn’t want to give my baby dummy’s, however I found she was comfort sucking. After some research I tried these breast like soothers and I can honestly say I’ve recommended them to so many mums. They definitely reduce comfort sucking and also are a godsend when needing to drive home but the baby needs feeding. My only two, very small criticisms is that I would rather the pack came with two neutral colours as opposed to white and blue, also I do find the open design not very nice to look at but it certainly does the job very well.

    I brought this item after having it suggested to me by another mother. My daughter was premature so had struggled with her sucking from the beginning. We are breastfeeding at the moment and find that there is no issue with this soother and if anything it is helping to develop her sucking. The only issue is that it easily falls out, but that might be because she is small and the soothers are quite big. You get two in the pack, which is think is good value for money!

    Bought these in 0-6 months but my son couldn't keep them in his mouth so I got 6-12 months and the same thing happened. He loves the shape and feel of the teat but falls out his mouth all the time, also couldnt find any soother holders to fit them either

    Bought these because my baby was struggling to hold a normal dummy in his mouth. It was later diagnosed as a tongue tie and since then he's been able to use these and normal dummies just fine. I don't really notice that he prefers one over the other and he is able to breastfeed regardless of which dummy he uses. These ones seem heavier than normal dummies. The weight isn't balanced as with normal dummies so the dummy is lost more easily

    Great product, my little girl loves these dummies, they are the only ones she would use as she is executively breastfed and likes to suck her thumb, these dummies prevent her from thumb sucking.

    We have used these since my daughter was one month old. I purchased as I had read they were good for coinciding with breastfeeding and preventing nipple confusion. She took it instantly (we only gave when napping/ going down to sleep) and they were a godsend! Loved/love them- never interferes with feeding and super easy to grasp now that little one is older. A couple of downsides- unlike a normal dummy there is no ‘handle’ as such so cant attach to a dummy clip. Also, there is a slight groove around the outer casing of the dummy which does get a little grubby. Not the easiest to clean but rhobust design and daughter loves them! She will not take another dummy (which is a slight shame as I had bought others- I assume she’s just got used to the design!) highly recommend

    These were great in the early days of my little girls life. They allowed me to get a little rest without causing her nipple confusion. I still use them on and off now but my little girl can take it or leave it.

    I haven’t had these long so still early days but so far my daughter seems to like them. The curved shape keeps it well away from her nose leaving plenty of ventilation which is good. The teat itself seems big initially but it’s actually a really good size when comparing to the nipple when baby is feeding. I can imagine it’s brilliant when swapping from breast to bottle aswell because of the almost bottle top shape to the whole dummy. Although because of the shape or weight (I’m unsure which) my daughter struggles to keep hold of it in her mouth. Like I say it’s still early days and my daughter is still very young. So that may improve as she grows.

    We love love love these!! Where have they been when I had my previous children! My now 7 week old won’t take any dummies .. this is the only one she will use ! From 2 days old she’s loved it! We’ve brought several more ! People are always commenting on how unique the look and how they haven’t seen anything like it before!
    My daughter is exclusively breast fed and so won’t take any dummy type but she really took to this so well! Recommended to so many already

    Absolutely over the moon with these dummies! I only just bought these 3 days ago so it’s still kinda early days on testing them out, but so far, so good! My little one loves a good dummy, but seemed to always prefer latching on to me to settle for a nap etc rather than just settle with his dummy and blankie. Since using this dummy from Monday afternoon, he’s finally been settling with a dummy rather than always settling while still attached to me. He does still want that comfort from me half the time, but it’s a start and I’m feeling positive about how well he’s doing with this dummy so far. Just need to order him som dummy clips so we don’t go losing them!

    We decided to try this soother for our newborn boy as he is breastfed and the other tommee tippee dummies he wouldn't take to. These ones works well for him and gives him that extra bit of comfort he couldn't get from me whilst falling asleep or helped 'soothe' him if he was fussy. He has now been using them for about 4 weeks now and he will take it really easily and only spit it out if he no longer wants it or is asleep. The only problem with these dummies is that they are quite large for a newborn baby but he doesn't seem too bothered by it. I would definitely recommend to other mums of breastfed babies to help give them that little bit of extra comfort!

    My baby would act as if he'd been poisoned when we tried him on orthodontic soothers, but he took to these like a dream!
    They really help him to sleep as they imitate the breast really well, and they're a brilliant price.
    The only downside is they look a bit strange, but no reason not to buy!

    We have tried quite a few dummies on the market, this one is close to perfection for my little one. Although a bit on the bigger side, it also meant that it was easy for my baby to hold onto and grab. The shape of the teat is like the nipple, so doesn’t cause confusion, however I wish the texture of the teat was slightly softer.

    This is a really good style dummy we tried other ones with my little one but this was the only one she would take. Sadly she will only take it for very short time periods and only if she has been over stimulated or over tired. I feel this is just cz she would prefer to actually feed over a comforter atm

    We tried these with our breastfed baby unsuccessfully. I initially really liked the idea of them being more breast like but my baby wouldn’t take to them at all. They seemed too big and hard to keep in the mouth when sucking.
    They might be better suited if used from day 1 maybe. Maybe at 2 months my baby already had a preference. They are a good idea, just not for us.

    I struggled a lit with my baby gurl who is now 2 months old. She needed a soother in between feeds but was refusing all the other ones. Some were to heavy and falling from her mouth and she wasn’t able to keep some other in her mouth because of the shape causing her frustration. I tried to give her the Tommee Tippee Breast-like Soother while doing shopping as she was crying and struggling to go to sleep. My little baby kept the soother in her mouth and felt asleep while sucking on it. I was really happy that she went to sleep thanks to the soother but more than that surprised that she kept it in her mouth. The only bad point is now that she doesn’t accept any other soother, I can’t buy any other more colourful one. The design is very simple and the only thing I can do is attach a nice dummy holder to it.

    The soother itself is quite heavy and my baby struggles to keep it in his mouth.

    Easy for baby to pull out of mouth and explore like a toy to practice hand/eye coordination.

    Quite pricey and unfortunately the product wasn’t right for my baby

Description

When mum’s breast isn’t available, the Tommee Tippee Breast-like Soother is the most breast-like replacement for little one to latch onto between feeds.
For many parents the idea of introducing a soother can be difficult. So they’ve taken inspiration from their award-winning Closer to Nature teat to create a brand new soother for a more natural experience.

The natural shape and feel helps transition between breast, bottle and soother. Made from super soft natural-feel silicone, this soother flexes and stretches just like mum, giving breast-like comfort for the most natural soothing experience.

Product Features:

  • Available in two colours (grey & blue)
  • Suitable for babies aged 0-6 months / 6-18 months
