NEW YORK — Difrax is selling its brand of three-stage pacifiers in the United States, the company said.
The company said it would start marketing the pacifiers after a successful run in Europe. The pacifiers, which are available in classic and orthodontic styles, have a three-stage design to accommodate babies' growth and development, including a soft-nipple stage for newborns and babies ages 6 months; another stage with a larger and slightly firmer nipple for those ages 6 to 18 months; and a solid nipple for those ages 18 months and older that is described as less satisfying and designed to prepare children for weaning.
Both pacifier styles have a butterfly shape to prevent the nose from being obstructed and holes to allow airflow and reduce skin irritation. The three stages sell for $5.49, $5.99 and $5.99, respectively.
