Q: Can if fit more than one pacifier?

submitted by Sammy - 4 years ago
  • A: Good morning, it is not recommended to use more than one pacifier at a time.

    submitted byMunchkin - 4 years ago
    Brand expert
  • A: Yes, you can squeeze extra pacifiers in, which makes the sterilizer double as a convenient carrying case; however, the UV light only works to disinfect the surfaces that are actually exposed to the light, so probably only one pacifier can be sterilized at a time (it only takes a minute per cycle).

The idea is great but it was a waste of money. You don’t really have time for it to sit there and disinfect. It takes up space and also needs to be charged. It takes both batteries and wall socket but they both don’t charge the device. Thought that wasn’t very useful.

If you’re like me and always dropping your baby’s pacifier when on the go, this is a great product. It’s easy to pop in your pacifier and sterilize quickly.

This pacifier portable sterilizer was a disappointment. I found it difficult to use, and it only works when connected to electricity, which completely defeats the purpose of it being portable. I'm not sure if my unit is defective, but based on my experience, I cannot recommend this product.

Bought one cause the thought of it was so convenient in sterilizing paci and nipples but ends up not working within a couple times being used. Bought a second one cause I thought I got a defect one, but second one end up doing the same. Stopped working within 2 days of purchase. Wasted time and money smh

Olson33 - 5 months ago, Verified purchaser
It’s hard to tell if it’s working or not when it’s on. Comes with a nice strap to hook onto diaper bag but it’s kind of bulky when it hangs there. Make sure to have batteries on hand, we weren’t able to get ours to work with just the charge alone. For new parents I would say this isn’t a must have but it’s nice to have on hand when you’re in a pinch with a dirty pacifier without another option to wash
