By Kathryn Hatter ; Updated April 18, 2017

Soothie pacifiers are popular both with babies and parents. With their one-piece design, they appeal with their simplicity. Many parents receive a Soothie pacifier for their baby during their hospital stay and find that the Soothie pacifier is the favored pacifier over the coming months. Sterilize Soothies prior to using them for the first time, and then sterilize them periodically to ensure they are free of germs and bacteria.
