MAM Baby Review & Giveaway


If Baby A could talk (well, more than babble), he would tell you that his favorite brand of pacifiers are MAM. Always have been, always will be, he is a dedicated MAM fan. Due to his love of the MAM pacifier, it's only natural that he also be in love with other MAM products, right? Well here's the thing, we live in a small town and it seems to be slim pickin's around here when it comes to a variety of MAM products, we have the pacifiers, but not much else. Baby A has recently had the opportunity to try out a few other MAM products and needless to be said, he's in love! I'm excited to tell you about them today, so lets dive right in!

*I received complimentary MAM products for review in exchange for my honest thoughts and opinions*

MAM began in 1976 with a vision of creating high quality baby products that would unify design, function, and medical competence. MAM is now the leading design brand in baby care and distributes their products on five continents, over fifty six countries. While MAM products are sold here in the United States, MAM has their headquarters in Switzerland and Austria, with offices in the United States, Spain, France, Greece, Sweden, the UK, Germany, Thailand, and Brazil. To say that MAM is one of the worlds most popular baby brands is a sever understatement! Globally, more than 50 million MAM baby products are sold annually! MAM caters their products to specific age ranges and all products are BPA free!


MAM was very generous and sent us a handful of products to try out and I could not have been more excited. We were able to choose the products and gender we wanted so of course I had to chose a couple of pacifiers for Baby A to test drive, ones of course, that we had not seen in stores. The first pacifier that I chose was the MAM Perfect. I chose the MAM Perfect because Baby A is now 19 months and realistically, we really need to start thinking about weaning. I know that weaning is not going to be an easy task though so I was excited to see that the MAM Perfect was a pacifier that I could feel good about using with Baby A, even though he is nearing the age where I promised myself he'd be rid of the paci. 


The MAM Perfect is designed to reduce the risk of misaligned teeth and was developed by orthodontists and pediatric dentists. The pacifier has what is called a Dento-Flex nipple neck making it 60% thinner than a regular paficier, and 3 times softer. The design of the pacifier is also better for babies skin due to the large ventilation holes! As you can see int he photos below, the MAM Perfect is designed for our babies who are a little older and who have mouths full of teeth! The MAM Perfect also includes a sterilization box for easy sterilization. I absolutely LOVE this pacifier, it took Baby A a couple of hours to get use to, he kept taking it out and looking at it - most likely wondering why it felt different - but I could soon tell that he really liked it. I feel great knowing that even when he insists on having a paci in his mouth, the MAM Perfect will reduce his chances of having misaligned teeth!


The second item we picked out was the Learn to Drink Cup. The Learn to Drink Cup is designed to make the final step between a sippy cup and a regular drinking cup a little simpler for us moms.  There is a valve inside of the spout that prevents leaks, a lid to place over the top for when it's not in use or in the diaper bag, and it has a unique shape that makes it easier for your child to hold onto. Baby A immediately took to this cup and loves the shape of the spout because its very easy for him to drink out of. Baby A still refuses to drink milk out of a sippy cup for me, but one night I was able to get him to drink milk out of the Learn To Drink Cup and I felt like a kid in the candy store. I haven't been able to get him to do it again since, but thank's to MAM, I feel like I had a great start! 


The third product I requested to try was the Learn To Brush Set and honestly, I was a little overly excited about this tooth brush set. Baby A absolutely loves to brush his teeth. He gets giddy when I tell him "lets go brush our teeth" and he runs to the bathroom giggling the whole time. He LOVES it. I have a feeling it has to do more with the flavor of his toothpaste than with brushing his teeth, but hey, if it's one less future battle, I'll take it! The downside, he wants to brush his teeth himself and gets a little pissy when I try to help him out! He lets me, but it's very reluctantly! The Learn To Brush Set is fantastic because it comes with two toothbrushes that can be used in two different ways, MAM's way, and my way! MAM's way is to have the parent and the child brush together by using the long handle tooth brush and once they've mastered brushing, the short handled toothbrush is for them to brush on their own. Works perfectly if your child isn't on the stubborn side like mine is (he must get it from his dad!) and will let you guide them, but if your little one is like my son is, read on. MY way to get Baby A to let me help him brush is teeth is by giving him the short handle tooth brush with a small dab of toothpaste and let him go to town for a few minutes. Once he's on the fence with loosing interest, I swoop in with the long handle tooth brush and get the job done. In Baby A's bewilderment of how we both have toothbrushes in our hands, he lets me brush brush brush and by the time he realizes what happened, I'm done! Works like a charm, every time. The MAM toothbrushes have round heads and soft bristles which clean the teeth, removing plaque and bacteria, and fit perfectly in baby's mouth. There are even red bristles on the brush to indicate how much toothpaste is safe to use with your little one! Now that I've discovered MAM's toothbrushes, I'll never buy another brand until Baby A is to big for these!


The final item we received for review are the MAM Night pacifiers which are so much fun for your little one to use at bedtime! The MAM Night pacifiers feature a curved shield that sits comfortable on baby's mouth but still has small openings which allow air to circulate and let your child's skin breath.  The pacifier also has a ultra soft silicone nipple that stays comfortable in baby's mouth thanks to it's anti slip texture. The nipple is symmetrical which is ideal for your child's jaw development. The best part of the MAM Night pacifier is that it is glow in the dark making it a fun treat for bedtime and easier for you to find in the dark if your little one spits it out. The first time I gave this pacifier to Baby A I had just laid him down and shut off the lights, then I handed him his new paci that was already glowing. I wish I had my camera on me in that very second because the look on his face just screamed "what the heck?!" as he looked at his paci glowing. It was hysterical! The MAM Night is a great night time pacifier and is sure to put a smile on your face when you kiss your baby goodnight and see them glowing!


As you can see, we really love our MAM products and have always been a huge fan of the MAM brand. We received our first MAM pacifier while Baby A was one day old (still in the hospital!) so I knew right off the bat that if the hospital trusted this brand, that I as a mother could trust it too. MAM has had a soft spot in my heart since my little guy was born and is a brand that I would (and frequently do) recommend to moms who are in need of a trusted brand.

  14. Hello, I used Mam pacifiers in 1977, the only place we could find them was 3 hours away, but we made the trip. I was so intent that my baby had the best. After looking at their site, I see many things I like but have decided on MAM Clip. Thank you. Vicki
