MAM Pacifiers


MAM’s cutting-edge pacifiers combine technological innovation and trendsetting design to help give babies a healthy start in life.  Developed by leading pediatric dentists and developmental psychologists, MAM pacifiers provide maximum comfort and style for babies of all ages.


Clever design and lightweight materials make MAM pacifiers a pleasure to use.  All MAM pacifiers feature an orthodontically correct nipple design that allows little ones to safely satisfy their sucking reflex while maintaining proper jaw and tooth alignment.  MAM pacifiers feature an easy-to-grasp front knob and a curved shield for a comfortable fit that’s gentle on baby’s skin, thanks to generous air holes and MAM’s patented interior surface.


MAM pacifiers are available in an assortment of colors and design motifs, and come in two nipple options: patented anti-slip Silk Teat™ Silicone or Natural Latex.  Like all MAM products, the brand’s pacifiers are BPA-free, PVC-free, lead-free and CPSIA-Compliant.

Suggested retail price: MAM Pacifiers, $7.49 for a pack of two

MAM Pacifier Accessories


Ideal for busy parents, MAM clips and keepers easily attach pacifiers to baby’s clothing to keep them clean, safe and within reach.   Clips can also be fastened to strollers, diaper bags and belt-loops to help keep baby’s beloved pacifier easily accessible, even while “on-the-go.”


Available in an assortment of colors and motifs, the clips’ detachable keeper ribbons are interchangeable for cleanliness and style.  Flexible rings attach to all MAM pacifiers, as well as other brands with knobs or rings, and are designed to coordinate with MAM’s colorful pacifier designs.  A wide clip opening allows keepers to quickly fasten to both thin and thick clothing.

Recommended retail: $4.99-5.99.

Ways to Make a Difference on World Ovarian Cancer Awareness Day Laura Mercier Ovarian Cancer Fund

Teal Lips - Speak Out For Hope

On May 8 (World Ovarian Cancer Awareness Day), the Laura Mercier Ovarian Cancer Fund (LMOCF) encourages everyone to join in the fight against ovarian cancer.


“World Ovarian Cancer Awareness Day is the perfect time to be inspired by this cause,” stated Claudia Poccia, President and CEO of Gurwitch Products. “Getting more people involved is the first step in creating greater awareness for this disease. LMOCF is pleased to recommend four ways to do something special and meaningful today.”


LMOCF has four recommendations on how to get involved on World Ovarian Cancer Awareness Day and we hope you can share them with your readers:


  1. Give a Gift that Gives Back: Mother’s Day is just days away and Laura Mercier cosmetics donates 100 percent of the profits from the sale of Bonne Mine Healthy Glow for Face & Cheeks Crème Colour Palette to the Fund.


  1. Educate yourself about the disease: Ovarian cancer is the leading cause of death among gynecological cancers in the United States and most women newly diagnosed with ovarian cancer are already in advanced stages of the disease.* To learn about the signs and symptoms of ovarian cancer, please visit Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center’s website.


  1. Spread the word online and offline: Talk to your friends and family members about what you’ve learned. You can join the Speak Out for Hope conversation online by following @LauraMercier on Twitter and Instagram and use #LMOCF, #SpeakOutForHope to support this important cause. Visit the Stories of Hope Gallery on the Laura Mercier Facebook page for inspiring messages from our community.


  1. Donate: Consider a direct donation to LMOCF to continue our mission to raise awareness and fund research and educational efforts that will help diagnose, treat and support women with ovarian cancer.
