Dummy reviews

We test 30 dummies in the CHOICE labs including models from Nuk, Tommee Tippee, Nuby and more.

Last updated: 23rd October 2013

Baby dummies can be a godsend, an extra tool in a parent's arsenal of settling tricks and techniques. And most dummies are usually safe, however our tests have uncovered some that aren't.

The main hazards to watch out for with dummies are:

  • choking and suffocation
  • strangulation by cords or ribbons tied to the dummy
  • infection.

Following investigations into unsafe dummies by CHOICE and the ACCC, a mandatory standard came into effect in 2006. It covers design and construction, performance, and information and labelling, and all dummies sold in Australia must comply.
