Most of us can relate to trying to calm your baby when they lose their pacifier. Where do those little buggers go? I can’t tell you the times I have had to crawl around under a crib or strip the linens trying to find a pacifier. Well, that was until we discovered WubbaNub. Their pacifier line is truly amazing. The attached stuffed animal can help calm your baby and help you keep up with the pacifier!
Years ago, my family embarked on our first vacation. With my newborn son, Bret, in tow, we looked forward to a relaxing week away from home. Baby Bret, however, was unable to relax without the comfort of his beloved pacifier. His pacifier was difficult for his tiny hands to grasp, and he dropped it often. Faced with a tearful child, I desperately needed a way to ensure that he was able to keep his pacifier nearby without my help. His favorite soft plush toy caught my eye, and I grabbed the hotel sewing kit. In a moment of inspiration, I sewed his pacifier onto his plush, and the first WubbaNub was born.
With the encouragement of my family, I turned my idea into a business. Throughout the years, support from parents and hospital NICUs has helped us grow tremendously. WubbaNubs can now be found in thousands of boutiques, specialty shops, and major retailers across the globe.
Our core philosophy at WubbaNub is simple: to create products that we would feel safe giving to our own children. A WubbaNub is often one of a baby’s first friends in life, and we are humbled to become a part of your family.
Wondering what is a WubbaNub?
For anyone not familiar with the WubbaNub brand, they are a mainstay in hospitals, NICU and well-baby units nationwide. Made for newborns to baby’s first tooth appearance, each pacifier is medical-grade silicone (hence latex free). The unique style of the WubbaNub pacifier allows it to remain close and easily positioned by the baby. Parents appreciate the fact that it’s not easily dropped, lost or forgotten.
WubbaNub is a safety-first company that mandates all infant/baby products are completely safety tested. The durable one-piece construction of the pacifier means no germs hiding between cracks. And there are no cords or clips. Parents can easily machine wash then air-dry their pacifier/plush friend. Check out all 10 styles for nine teams (two for the Yankees).
Recently WubbaNub launched a MLB sports collection theme of the pacifier line. They are available in ten (10) MLB teams.
Babies sporting a sweet toothless smile can finally root, root, root for the home team thanks to WubbaNub’s Major League Baseball* (MLB) Collection. Nine big city teams join the original pacifier/plush animal maker that’s won awards for its soothing design. Tiny fingers can now grasp a lightweight New York Yankee pinstriped puppy or a Chicago Cubs bear.
Whether you call it a binky, paci or soother, the pacifier is a pleasure for both baby and parents with its power to calm even the fussiest infant. According to the Mayo Clinic, most babies have a strong sucking reflex. Some babies even suck their thumbs or fingers before they’re born. Beyond nutrition, sucking often has a soothing, calming effect. That’s why many parents rank pacifiers as must-haves, right up there with diaper wipes! With WubbaNub’s newest sports collection, even newborns can show some team spirit.
For those lucky enough to be visiting the Yankee™ Stadium retail stores, you will find the New York Yankees Bear available for purchase.
Other theme WubbaNub Pacifiers include their classic editions, limited editions, exclusives collection, specialty collection, and a seasonal collection that changes throughout the year. Honestly, the hardest part is picking out which one..or two or three pacifiers your little one will want.
Of course in addition to the pacifier, every little one needs a matching critter from the WubbaNub Lovey collection to love and cuddle. Oh my, these are the cutest things!
The WubbaNub Lamb Lovey is an ultra soft lamb that your little one will want to love, hug, and drag around into their toddler years. It will become the sweetest companion that your little one will love!
Another favorite lovey of ours is the WubbaNub Giraffe Lovey. It is a spoted giraffe with the sweetest face and little ossicones that can’t wait to be chewed on! Your little one will want to take this WubbaNub Giraffe Lovey along on every adventure they encounter.
A Lovey is great for an older child
The comfort and calming effect of having something to hold in stressful situations makes a WubbaNub Lovey the perfect gift for an older toddler or preschooler. Our three (3) year old still carries her Lovey around, especially when she is needing a little extra comfort.
Both of these products make great gifts for the new or soon to be parent. And now you can also grab a WubbaNub to show your MLB team support. These adorable WubbaNub items can be found online and in stores locally. Not sure where to purchase them? Use their Store locator link to find a retailer near you.
Help calm your baby with a WubbaNub and Lovey. Take it from a mom of seven…you can’t be without a pacifier and lovey if you want to keep your sanity. From my experience, I would suggest buying two of them and rotate them monthly to keep the “wearing” pattern about the same. We had the lamb lovey and it vanished on a road trip. Thankfully we were in a city that had a retailer so we grabbed a replacement. Do you think our little man was happy with the new one? Nope!?!?! He was so upset and heart broken. Yes he eventually accepted the new lamb and still has it today and he is in Kindergarten. Thus my recommendation of purchasing two of the same Lovey animals. Oh the things we moms do to keep our little ones healthy and happy.
