This is a contemporary, safe and ergonomic baby-focused soother with clever usability features for the parents. Everything has purpose: hygiene is addressed through an easily cleanable one-piece design while safety features include breathing holes and appropriate dimension/material choices. Ergonomics are reflected in the orthodontic teat and face-following curved shape with a discreet notch at the top for the nose. The tab enables simple string and toy accessory attachments with the open-ended teat inviting physical parent interaction. All these needs are discreetly merged with a friendly, cheerful yet timeless and gender natural design.
