Are Pacifier Labels Necessary?

Are you sick and tired of all of the things you have to label for daycare?

Bottles, clothes, shoes, you name it. You’re in a never ending battle!

It can be time consuming in the beginning but removable labels makes it easy to reuse items for a future baby or to be able to sell your baby accessories to a new mom.

Clothes and bottles are easy to label but what are you supposed to do with a pacifier? Don’t worry! I’ll walk you through the whole process of how to label pacifiers for daycare.

Best Pacifier Labels for Daycare:

Monogrammed Pacifier Decal

Let’s be honest, as moms we love to monogram everything! By using a monogrammed pacifier label, you get to customize your own pacifier while being stylish and practical at the same time. Unfortunately these labels can only be used for specific pacifiers:

To use the monogrammed label, your pacifier needs to have an area that protrudes from the front. The most popular pacifiers with this feature include the MAM, Philip Avent Freeflow, and Tommee Tippee Closer to Nature.

This place makes awesome monogrammed labels!

Labels aren’t the only way to get a customized monogram for a pacifier. Don’t believe me? Check out this shop.

The owner goes above and beyond with her monograms. There is no paper or sticker labeling involved at all. Instead, the monogram is engraved into the pacifier. How cool is that? She also gives you the option of having the entire first name on the pacifier if you don’t want monogram.  Don’t worry about the price, it’s extremely affordable.

Personalized Pacifier Clip

Pacifier clips are one of the best inventions ever! You don’t have to worry about your baby dropping the pacifier or not being able to find it when you need it most. The only problem is that not all daycares allow them. Be sure to check the rules ahead of time so you won’t be disappointed like I was.

The best place to get your personalized clip is Etsy. The prices are amazing and the creativity is out of this world.

This is my favorite place to get clips for pacifiers by far! The owner keeps daycare moms in mind with her offerings plus the quality of her work is amazing. Her personalization is guaranteed not to fade or wash off and she doesn’t use ink or stickers. You’ll only find engraved products in her shop.

If you’re short on time and need a clip quickly, go here instead.

Some daycares only allow baby’s to have one personal item. If that’s the case for you, this paci clip is a must have. This way your baby can also be comforted while teething.

Every mom is not going to take the time to get a customized baby pacifier clip and that’s fine. But, if you do, your chances of misplacing your baby’s pacifier will be greatly reduced!

Pacifier Overlay

The pacifier overlay is one of the most economical ways to label your pacifier. Not only is it good for pacifiers but you can also use them for clothes, shoes, and bottles.

These work well for pacifiers like this where you can’t use a monogram label or a pacifier clip. Save the left overs and use them to create personalized file folders, as stickers in your mom planner,  or to identify your baby’s stuff in your family command center.

I have a love hate relationship with the soothie pacifier. It was the only pacifier my daughter would take but it was also extremely difficult to label. If you’re in the same boat, take a look at my daycare tips post where I give you the solution that worked for me! 


How to DIY pacifier labels?

You’re going to be labeling things for the next few years so  it makes perfect sense to learn how to do it yourself.

I was so inspired by all of the awesome designs I saw on Etsy that I went and purchased this cutting machine and this vinyl. I’ve made labels, monogrammed tumblers and totes for teacher appreciation day, and custom shirts for my daughter’s birthday and Mother’s Day. It was worth every penny!

If you don’t want to invest in a cutting machine, you can always use these labels and your home printer. You will still get a pretty, customized, and functional pacifier label.

Another option is to just purchase this pacifier clip and these markers. You’ll have a personalized pacifier in no time!

Remember labels and will always be your friend. I hope this has helped relieve some of your anxiety as you prepare to send your little one to daycare.

  1. That’s a good idea to get a label maker to print of your own label. I feel like that would help you clearly see which one belongs to your child. I’ll have to consider getting one of those to start labeling my son’s things when he goes to daycare.

    1. The Jollypop pacifier is very similar to the soothie pacifier. You can use one of the two holes on the side for a personalized pacifier clip or you can use an overlay. Let me know if you have any other questions. The other solution I found helpful doesn’t seem to be available anymore but I’ll keep looking.
