WubbaNub Review and GIVEAWAY!! ~ CLOSED



All you pro-paci parents will so relate to this one….







With babe #1 I had great plans to NOT use a pacifier because “I wanted a baby that could self sooth”. We’ll, she came 15 weeks too soon and a pacifier was essential to her learning to suck and eat in the NICU. So when babe #2 came along 8 weeks ago I once again was determined to get myself a “self soother” ;)


It was about 2am on her first night home after a diaper change, a feeding, a soft touch massage and an hour of rocking that I tore apart my diaper bag looking for that pacifier the hospital had given me. It was a Soothie and I was praying HARD that it would live up to its name. It only took a few sucks before her tired eyes rolled back and she dozed off! FINALLY….PEACE!


It wasn’t long before I realized that to keep this peace someone (or something) needed to be physically holding the paci in place!


How many times have you wished you had something to apply just enough pressure to your baby’s pacifier so it would stay put??? We’ve all tried bundling up the edge of babe’s blanket with hopes that THIS time it would just stay put! We’ve also worried that the same blanket may sneak on up over babe’s face which would NOT be good.


Lucky for us in 1998 there was a family dealing with the same issue….and that’s when WubbaNub was born!

I was SUPER excited when our WubbaNub arrived. And even more excited to discover the animal is actually attached to the Soothie!! I quickly opened the package and put it to the test!




Now, babe doesn’t always want her paci but it just so happened that she did at this moment so I grabbed my camera and began recording.

I already knew just how often I was having to put the Soothie back in babe’s mouth but I thought I’d tape it for you to see for comparison…..



As you can see in a matter of 20 seconds it had fallen out and needed to be put back in place. Now just imagine it’s 2am, you’re groggy and doing this every 20 seconds……NOT GOOD!

I couldn’t stand the suspense so I grabbed the WubbaNub and put her to work.




60 seconds went by and she was still in place….it’s a miracle!!!!


It didn’t take babe long to discover her new friend Miss Lamb. I must admit at first she actually pulled on her which pulled the paci out but once she got used to her she only grasped the lamb and didn’t actually pull her away. I thought Miss Lamb was going to be somewhat of a “distraction” but then I realized she could actually be providing babe with sensory stimulation and helping develop her fine motor skills.

WubbaNub has received numerous awards over the years for its innovative design and all around awesomness. It’s made of medical grade silicone and conforms to the ASTM F963-96a safety code requirements and is baby safe.

The limbs of the WubbaNub have beans in a safety sack to help weigh down the plush toy. Don't worry....it's very light!

To wash your WubbaNub Simply, surface wash with water and mild soap, rinse and air dry. You can gently brush after drying to restore the plush.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I give the WubbaNub 5 heels!
