I’m sure every mom knows what a Wubbanub is, even if you aren’t aware of the name. How can you miss the distinctive look? A pacifier with a stuffed animal attached to the end?
A. How cute and
B. What does it do?!
Those were my two thoughts when I first started seeing these pop up in strollers and car seats everywhere I went.
A friend of mine said it doesn’t do anything, she just bought it because it was so cute!
Another friend of mine said it helps keep the pacifier in the baby’s mouth.
Whatever it did, I needed one- that was for sure.
I am all about pacifiers. If your child, like my oldest, isn’t the best self-soother but will take it- why not? I think pacifiers are so much easier to get rid of than a thumb. We went cold turkey with my daughter and while it wasn’t pretty, it worked.
We received the green frog for review and after learning more about the company, I now know that the true reason behind the creation of the Wubbanub was the founder, Carla’s, frustration with constantly having pacifiers go missing. I can relate. I think with my older daughter we had 8 or 9 pacifiers lingering around our house, the diaper bag and the car at any one time.
There is no way that I am misplacing a pacifier with a stuffed animal on the end and even if I do, I can find it because of the bright green frog. So not only does it help with the “missing pacifier syndrome” by making it a bit easier to find it, it gives the baby something to love on while sucking the paci. Baby boy loves to grab on his froggy- it’s nice and soft and snuggles up to him- what’s not to love?
There are currently 12 different animal choices, with more to come. Wubbanub pacifiers are carried at many retailers. I recently saw them in Dillard’s in the infant clothing section. You can also buy them on Amazon (where you can find limited edition ones like the alligator). They retail for between $12.95 to $19.95.
Here’s what I wish, though. I wish that the pacifier was removable from the stuffed animal’s mouth. I am a very big germaphobe and it’s hard for me to relinquish power to the stuffed animal and not be able to sterilize the pacifier or swap it out for a new one. It says that the stuffed animal is machine washable, but that would mean that I’d have to toss the pacifier in the washing machine too… ew. I do clean the pacifier itself with hot water and soap, but if I want to wash the stuffed animal I have to do it by hand (making sure to keep the cleaning detergent away from the pacifier).
If, in future products, the removing of the pacifier was a possibility- this would be a perfect product for me. We are enjoying it, though as it does serve it’s purpose which is to soothe the baby and help with missing pacis. Check it out for yourself and tell me what you think!
