AbstractThis invention relates to a pacifier that may properly interest an infant of eight months old or older to make a preferable stimulation, for leading the infant to the next developmental stage of ingesting activity, or that can be used in a way for adapting to more advanced ingesting activity. A pacifier is provided with a nipple (11) and a shield plate (12) disposed at the base portion (13) of the nipple which has a predetermined width. The nipple is provided with a tip portion (15) having a width and a thickness, the width being larger than the thickness, to be formed into a flat shape, and an upper curved surface (19) formed at the upper surface of the tip portion so as to be convex at a central portion thereof.
