Product Safety & Usage Tips

Product Safety and Usage Tips

MAM products are developed with medical experts, product engineers and parents to ensure the healthy development and well-being of babies. As a result, the materials used in MAM products are safe for all babies and are not manufactured with BPA, BPS, lead or phthalates. All MAM products meet or exceed U.S. government standards and ASTM international standards.

MAM instructions are available for download in .pdf format:

To ensure proper use of MAM products and the safety of your child, please read the product instructions before first use. Also, keep in mind the following tips:

  • It is important to inspect your child’s pacifier carefully before each use. Pull the pacifier nipple in all directions and throw away the pacifier at the first sign of damage or weakness.
  • Pay extra attention to your child’s pacifier as teeth emerge, which can occur as early as 1 month.
  • Replace the pacifier every 1-2 months for safety and hygiene.
  • MAM pacifiers are designed so that if they become lodged in a child’s mouth, the pacifier cannot be swallowed, and the child will still be able to breathe due to the pacifier’s air holes. Remove the pacifier as gently as possible.
  • Each pacifier nipple contains a small opening, which is designed to compress during sucking. During washing and sterilization, however, a small amount of water may enter the nipple. This can be expelled by squeezing the nipple.

We want to illustrate how we think about product development at MAM: specifically, the health & safety of children, optimum support throughout their development, the details and deigns that babies instinctively feel good with, and supporting parents’ daily life as best we can with well-thought MAM functionality.

Teamwork of design, technology & medicine

All of our products are the result of unique teamwork:

Besides our designers and high-tech teams for material and production technology there are also experts from medicine (e.g., paediatrics, dentistry and orthodontics) and developmental psychology involved as well as midwives, speech therapists, lactation consultants and paediatric nurses

Safety

MAM products conform to all applicable, relevant norms and standards world-wide. To be absolutely certain though, the company's internal controls and guidelines have been developed to actually exceed the regulatory requirements.

Safe baby products must fulfil a number of requirements, none of which should be compromised in our view.

Here is a sample of selected criteria:

  • Products must be unbreakable to prevent injury to babies and parents.
  • All products are required to be heat resistant to allow for thorough cleaning.
  • Furthermore, products for babies 0 to 6 months must be able to withstand boiling temperatures since they are sterilizable for 100% hygiene and safety.
  • Products, and especially their surfaces, must be designed so that they are not only convincing in design and function, but also ensure that babies can play safely with MAM products which helps develop their motor-sensory skills.

For the reasons listed above, it is clear that this catalogue of safety requirements will certainly not be met by materials like metal or wood.

Plastics

MAM products are primarily made of plastic. For us, working with plastic means more than employing the highest level of technical competence and safety standards during manufacturing. It also means thoroughly understanding the components and the reaction of organic materials and continuing to increase our know-how because research constantly brings new insights into the use of plastic in everyday life as well as innovative materials which better meet safety requirements.

All plastics used in MAM baby products that come in contact with food or saliva are approved for food contact applications in accordance with Regulation (EC) 1935/2004 and carry the warranty of the suppliers of raw materials, in accordance with the requirements of good manufacturing practice as set forth in (EC) 2023 / 2006.
