Q: Can if fit more than one pacifier?

submitted by Sammy - 3 years ago
  • A: Good morning, it is not recommended to use more than one pacifier at a time.

    submitted byMunchkin - 3 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).

You are better off using a baby safe wipe than using this product. Does not work at all.

Thank you for your feedback! We are sorry to hear the experience you had with the Munchkin 59S Mini Sterilizer Portable UV Sanitizer. Here are a few things to try to get your sterilizer back in action. 1) The unit must be using all new batteries. 2) The USB power source is not a charge for the unit. Once unplugged without batteries, the sterilizer will not turn on. 3) Please make sure that you are not using two power sources at once. When using the USB power source, please remove the batteries. If these solutions do not solve your problem, please reach out to our Customer Satisfaction Team at cserv@munchkin.com for assistance. If you prefer, you can also call 1-800-344-BABY (2229) or text 1-805-344-BABY (2229).

Portable ! I love this item I had it for about 3 months and the batteries died once . When I’m in the house I keep it charged up and when I go out for the day I put the batteries in but still bring charger just in case. The only thing is I don’t know how to turn it off , but it eventually goes off .

It works when you plug the cord part in but not with the batteries, I’ve literally tried all brand batteries. I won’t return it cause I’ve already scratched it up a bit but I wouldn’t recommend this product to anyone it’s a waste of $20 and child extra to carry around, sanitizing wipes are cheaper and lighter on hand I’m just saying ..

I was so excited for this, but it broke after 2 weeks of usage. It never left the house, was never dropped, stayed in one place. It only works now if plugged into the charger, which defeats the purpose of having it on the go. Very disappointed in this product.

Chaunty88 - 1 year ago
It’s much smaller than I was expecting and can only sterilize one pacifier at a time. I guess I missed that it’s also supposed to be portable so my expectations were higher than they should’ve been. I just unpacked it so we’ll see how things go. I don’t know that it keeps a charge, because it requires batteries.

Fire hazard

JB64 - 1 year ago, Verified purchaser
Defective, fire hazard. If I could I would give this a zero star rating. Gave as a gift to my sister in law. She plugged in to sanitize pacifier as she normally does. She came back to an awful smell in her kitchen not knowing what or where the smell was coming from. She went to grab the sanitized pacifier and found the awful smell. The sanitizer connector had started melting. This could have caused a fire if she hadn’t checked when she did. Do not buy! I felt awful for giving her this gift that could’ve caused some serious damage.

This is something I would have never thought of at first but once our baby was able to take her pacifier out of her mouth, it lands on the floor constantly. Not only is it for pacifiers, we put teething toys, pacifier ring sets. In there to sterilize it. Every once in a while we will still sterilize her bottle nipples.

better than pacifier wipes!

5 out of 5 stars
Dee - 1 year ago
Big advocate of pacifiers here! Anything to help your baby soothe is a great thing. So this portable sterilizer is a life saver and better than those pacifier wipes that dry up and give off a weird taste. So easy to use and carry with you anywhere.
