Nascar Pacifier: The “Fastest” Way to Baby Comfort
Vroom, vroom! If your little boy loves cars, then he’ll love Nascar Pacifiers. These adorable accessories come in bright colors with the car number of some of the most popular drivers on the Nascar circuit such as: Tony Stewart, Ryan Newman, and Kasey Kahne.
These pacifiers are a welcome break from the typical look of pacifiers—pastels, teddy bears, ducks and other “baby” themes that are cute but are, well, ordinary. Think of them as the “faster” side of baby comfort toys, the pacifier with pizzazz. Best of all, they reflect the fun side of your child’s personality, and look especially appropriate when he’s crawling around the floor at breakneck speed.
The Nascar Pacifiers is part of a Nascar set that includes sun shades, growth charts, curtain rods, and drawer pulls. Talk about a comfort toy with class!
The Ultimate Comfort Toy
Many children find pacifiers very comforting. They use it to calm down, and can often fall asleep while contently sucking on their favorite “binky”. Tired and frantic parents often rely on pacifiers to soothe a fussy baby, or ward off a tantrum or meltdown. When you’re running errands, or trying to cook dinner, pacifiers can keep your child happy long enough for you to get things done.
Pacifiers are also indispensable during long trips, when children naturally get restless. Many parenting books recommend bringing pacifiers with children on plane trips, and giving them during takeoff and landing. The rapid change in altitude can cause “ear popping”, which small children find uncomfortable and even frightening. Sucking on pacifiers relieves that pressure and also gives them comfort in unfamiliar surroundings.
During car rides, children can experience carsickness or just get fussy because they’d rather go out and play then sit in a confined space for several hours. Bringing pacifiers can settle them down for a nap, so they can sleep during the trip (letting you drive undisturbed—much safer for everyone in the car!)
Pacifiers are great toys, and provide an easy and convenient way of calming or entertaining children. However, parents need to remember some important things.
Pacifiers must be cleaned regularly. Saliva is a breeding ground for bacteria, and so it’s necessary to wash them several times a day. Buy several pacifiers so your child doesn’t “miss” them; plus, you’ll need an extra pacifier in case the one your child is using falls to the floor.
Don’t attach pacifiers to very long chains or necklaces. These can be choking hazards, especially if you leave your child alone with one in a crib or chair. If you want to clip pacifiers to avoid losing them, use a chain that’s too short to wrap around the child’s neck.
If your child has a favorite pacifier, buy more than one like it. Children can become attached to that pacifier and get very upset if it gets lost. Having a “backup” pacifier will spare you a lot of trouble when it’s 3 am and he refuses to go to sleep with his treasured Nascar Binky.
