over the shoulder - oh, how did it go so quickly? But before
you've had time to adjust to this new situation an awful

Natural Soother - as used by Cate Blanchett
Non-toxic Natursutten Pacifiers are made from natural rubber from the Hevea Brasiliensi tree. The Danish word Natursut means "Natural Pacifier", which are extremely hygienic as they are moulded in one piece. There are no joints where bacteria can accumulate. The pacifier shield is larger than conventional shields to protect babies from squeezing the flexible material into their mouth. It will not leave marks on the baby's face, no artificial colours or chemical, softeners, parabens, PVC or phthalates and softer than silicone.
Six styles available from www.makeuwell.com.au for $9.95 or phone 1300 55 36 45.
