Dummies (soothers in US I believe) are normally a handle, a hilt, and then the soft plastic molding that goes in the mouth. I propose doing away with the handle and hilt and having a 6 pronged dummy instead. It would take the shape of and x,y,z axis (I don't know the name of the shape). The benefits
would be it lasts 6 times longer, is easier for the infant to get back in if it drops out (not as much turning and positioning required), and would have a cross piece in each direction that would prevent swallowing.

This sounds like a pacifier. Here is your category, Mony. [bungston, Nov 17 2008]
||You could do a tetrahedral binky-caltrop (no matter how you drop it, one end stays clean).
||This would be useful for parents of sextuplets as well. They need all the help they can get.
