Inspect carefully before each use. Pull the pacifier in all directions. Throw away at the first signs of damage or weakness. Safety instructions inside. Please read before use. Before first use boil in water for 5 minutes or sterilize. Allow to stand for a further 5 minutes before giving it to baby. During cleaning a small amount of water may enter the nipple. This can be expelled by squeezing and shaking the nipple. This is to ensure hygiene. Clean before each use. Do not use aggressive cleaning agent. Never dip the nipple in sweet substances or medication. This can cause tooth decay. Do not worry if the pacifier becomes lodged in the mouth. It cannot be swallowed and is designed to cope with such an event. Remove as gently as possible. MAM recommends giving up pacifier usage at 3 years. Sterilizer box instruction: Remove tamper-proof closure and any stickers from the box. Wash pacifiers and box with mild soapy water and then rinse with clear water before use. This is to ensure hygiene. When using the self-sterilizing method, please ensure the pacifier, box and microwave (including the waveguide-cover and turntable) are completely clean and free from dirt, food residue, fat or oil splashes. If not, this could lead to the product or box melting and the microwave sparking or the waveguide cover burning!). First, hold box and fill to the mark with 25 ml / 0.9 fl oz of water (Fig. A). Next, place pacifier(s) in the box with the nipple facing down (Fig. B). Close box and heat in the microwave at 750 - 1000 watts. Set the microwave timer according to the number of boxes and pacifiers being simultaneously disinfected. Follow the user manual instructions of your microwave. Don't put the sterilizer box at the center of the turntable. Don't leave your microwave unattended during disinfection process! Stop the microwaving process immediately if no water remains. Allow to cool for at least 5 minutes. Open microwave. Caution! The box, water and pacifier may still be very hot after the 5 minute cooling period! Open box and drain remaining water. Expel water from nipple by squeezing and shaking. Leave pacifiers to dry in a slightly open box. After microwave disinfection, pacifiers kept in the closed box will remain disinfected for up to 48 hours. Microwave disinfection is proven effective in killing common household germs and bacteria. Check the temperature of the pacifier before use! Improper water level, power level or time setting can damage the micro-wave, pacifiers and box and result in poor disinfection! For use only with MAM pacifiers! Keep all parts of the sterilizer box away from children.
