Same hospital pacifier material and I haven’t lost one yet!
I first bought these when I again had to replace the 12 pacifiers that had gone missing. My daughter had grown accustom to the feel of the hospital brand pacifiers since she spent a couple of months there after birth. I came across these and bought them because they were super cute but was unsure if my daughter would like them. Previously I had bought pacifiers that looked like the ones the hospital provided but were not. The plastic used to make them were shiny and for whatever reason my daughter had no interest in them. I later discovered that the Gum Drop pacifiers were identical to the ones provided by hospitals. They have a vast variety of styles and colors likeGumDrop Pacifier Full-Term Natural Scent Orange 5 Packand Gum Drop Preemie Pacifier Vanilla Scent (Green) for preemies. These wubbanubs were in fact made of the same material and perfect for my little one. I only wished I had found them sooner since my other two children are grown. I could have saved myself from trips to the crib in the middle of the night to give baby back her pacifier. These pacifiers are perfect for little hands to find and grab in the middle of the night. My daughter just puts her own pacifier back in her mouth. I have yet to lose these unlike the gazillion other pacifiers I have purchased over the years. They make a great toy for baby as well. While the pacifier is in her mouth she tends to play with the plush and tag. It is a somewhat meditative motion that helps to sooth her and/or occupy her in her carseat/stroller/crib. So not only is it a pacifier and toy but it helps build motor skills. There are a number of different colors, animals and even textures like this oneWubbanub Plush Pacifier Toy, Mango Monkey. TheWubbaNub Tabby Kittenis my favorite. I have noticed that it is slightly smaller than the other ones I’ve purchased but my daughter loves it just the same. The pacifier itself is sewn very well to the plush, however, I usually cut the pacifier out after its seen some wear. Just as a caution. Once you stitch the the hole back you have another little toy for baby to play with unlike the plain pacifiers that you have to dump. They make great gifts and additions to a shower basket. I have bought many for my friends. When you think of the must haves in baby gear, I personally would add this to my list.Update: To wash or sterilize, I place a small plastic sandwich bag around the plush to prevent it from getting wet. I can then wash the pacifier with warm water and anti-bacterial soap or clean with a baby safe sterilizer. Then I just take a sterile wipe or even a baby wipe to gently rub the plush doll. It has worked well for me and keeps baby’s gear germ free.
This is actually a necessity!
At first, I was very reluctant to buy this, now I don’t regret it. I’m usually against buying unnecessary gizmos and gadgets invented to make life easier than it already is, but this one has proved to really help in a lot of areas!Convenience:My son would always spit out (on accident) and lose his paci mid-sleep, so we find ourselves getting up many times a night just to put it back in his mouth. This acts a “paperweight,” so when he spits it out, it still sits right at his lips, just incase he decides he wants it again. Over time, as he starts to gain more control over his hands, he’s learned to grab the monkey, itself, and bring it closer to his mouth. He has also learned to recognize the feeling of his “monkey.” If I place any other stuffed toy near him, he’ll ignore it until he finds his monkey, lol.Efficiency:Oh, and this is GREAT for never losing anymore pacifiers! We’ve lost 2 before we decided to buy this! Once we got this, we’ve never even come close to losing it since it’s practically a toy!Avent SOOTHIE attached:There IS one caveat — don’t buy this unless your baby ALREADY LIKES “Soothies” (which is the type of pacifier that’s attached to the stuffed toy). If your baby is already used to orthodontic pacis, he/she may not like switching over to this type of pacifier.This VS. clip-ons:I like this more bc it also acts like a toy, and it helps their fine motor skills when they learn to grab and grip onto things. A clip-on may also get in the way when you’re trying to pick them up or hold them. The toy also helps to avoid letting the nipple part touch surfaces.ONLY CON:The pacifier is permanently attached, but this is only a minor issue to me. When washing the paci, I don’t mind getting the toy a little wet. It dries pretty quickly. And I try to clean it as soon as it gets dirty from milk or anything else. I also wipe it down occasionally.
I brought this plush toy pacifier for my daughter. Shes a bit over month but this monkey has become her best friend. The pacifier is a regular soothie pacifier that is suitable for 0-3 months. We put the pacifier in her month and the plush toy rests on her chest.My wife was very concerned with the toy laying on the babies chest, and being to heavy for her. When we got it the toy weight barely anything, so its absolutely safe to lay on the babies chest.To clean the toy we just use Purell sanitizing wipes that we just wipe the toy down with and then we take a warm damp cloth and wipe it down again. To clean the pacifier we just boil water, put it into a cup and holder the soothie in there for about 1-2 minutes.I would definitely recommend this to any parents.Oh and it also makes for great & cute pictures of the baby with the pacifier.
No Longer a Slave to the “Binky”
My infant does not want to go to sleep. I am convinced he purposely spits out his pacifier in a last ditch attempt to wake himself up. I tried the Wubbanub hoping it would make it harder for him to spit it out. IT REALLY WORKS. My infant spits out the pacifier, but it is positioned right on his chest, so he can get it back in his mouth! It is wonderful. Granted, it doesn’t work 100% of the time, especially when he starts rocking in his swaddle, but it has made bedtime so much more easier. This is a must for parents with infants.
Extremely disappointed 🙁
I was desperately looking for solution to the pacifier always falling out of my 2 month old baby’s mouth making him cry hysterically particularly when I’m driving. I read reviews and thought this product would be a lifesaver but I was so disappointed. First, the pacifier that comes with the toy is flimsy, it’s not the same quality as the actually one that you buy separately. Also, the way it is sewn on to the mouth of the toy, it pulls the pacifier out of the baby’s mouth making it even more difficult for the baby to hang on to it then if it was just a pacifier without the toy. I waited by the door to receive this and unfortunately it was a huge waste. Going back to holding the pacifier in myself.
The Indispensable Monkey!
Per a recommendation from early intervention for our premie son, we bought a Wubbanub. Their thinking was that the weight of the stuffed animal on the baby’s chest might make him feel more comfortable — especially since he was too young to lie on his stomach.Monkey has become the fourth member of our family. Our son took to him immediately and he really helped calm him down and go to sleep. Our son just turned one year old and he still loves Monkey, but is becoming less dependent on him.My one piece of advice, if your child loves his Wubbanub, buy a second one for backup. We lost Monkey one fateful day and we’re all troubled until his replacement arrived.
These pacifiers are so great, they are the only ones my little guy will use!perfect for car trips because they don’t fall behind them in the seat when they spit them out.Especially when he gets upset in the car he hugs onto the stuffed animal part, and it clams him down.also it’s much esier to find in the diaper bag than those tiny pacifers that fall to the bottom and get all gross.my advice is get several… and keep in every room!
Love, love, love!!!
Infants notoriously spit out pacifiers – it’s a fact.We love the Wubbanub because it positions the pacifier in such a way that my daughter can stop sucking for a moment and it does not fall out and roll away.At 14 weeks old, she will now slurp on the legs, tail and head of this thing and is learning to put the pacifier back in on her own – Don’t leave home without it!!! 🙂
We don’t go anywhere without it.
This little guy goes everywhere with us. Even though my son has stopped taking a pacifier I still stick him in the car seat with him. In fact, he is in his bed right now. I think I might even remove the pacifier eventually and hand sew him back up. I highly recommend this product.
Great! My daughter loves this. The pacifier is great and she also loves to hang onto the monkey. So cute!
The perfect pacifier for my son
My son hates the single pacifier with nothing hanging onto it. So I tried this monkey pacifier and he immediately fell in love with it. He sucks on it during nap and sleep time. It’s also a lifesaver for us new parents when he cries in the middle of the night. I just pop this pacifier back in and he will fall back asleep. As of today, my son is 12 months and still uses it. He now grabs it himself in the middle of the night and put himself back to sleep. My son’s favorite pacifier and buddy.
Recommend the wubbunub to everybody!
We bought the wubbunub so it would stay on our sons chest while he was in his car seat. It didn’t really work for that until he was around 3 months. Then the wubbunub became his best friend!!! It was a security blanket and binky all in one. The best part is that it has the soothie pacifier on it (which was the brand he loved).Pros:- Easy to find in a bag because its bigger than a regular binky.- Easy for a baby to find when they want their binky.- Easy to wash: I just threw it in the wash when I washed his clothes.- You can easily seam rip the binky off when you’re ready to wean the binky and your child can still have their security toy.
Helps Keep Paci In
Unfortunately, our little guy doesn’t really take a pacifier, but this would definitely help to keep it in/near his mouth if he did want the paci. I don’t think I’d feel comfortable putting him to bed with this toy (early on, at least), but it’s great for in the swing, car seat, etc.
Got this one as a present for my sister in law but my son had them when he was tiny. They are the perfect size to fit in their hands and hold in their mouth and adorable. I only wish you could replace the pacifier – we had a dog who liked to chew them!
My 2nd wubbanub.
I always give 5 stars for wubbanubs bc my daughter loves them so much. SHe lights up every time she see them. They are perfect for babies who can’t hold their binki in their mouth very well (much like my daughter.) They have flaws such as the cleaning hassle and the brand is in the works of making some for older babies (these are only meant for 0-6). Which sucks bc my daughter is 6m. At least they are trying. But what made me give this 3 stars is not bc of these reasons. i would still give it a 5. The pros totally out wight the cons. but why this particular one earned 3 stars is bc when received it had cotton sticking out of the stitches. It had a huge knot of thread where it was sew shut. The tail had no filling. JUst a long piece of cloth. THe whole monkey felt less filled then her kitty that she has. Other then that its works great. I was just upset about the quality. Shipping back would take wayyyyy to long as i am stationed overseas. It takes forever to send and receive mail out here so i just dealt with it. My daughter can care less about the threading. She loves her wubbanubs.
My baby loves this!
My baby was having a really hard time learning to use a pacifier. I read reviews on this product and saw others saying it helped their babies to have something to hold onto, so I decided to check it out. It is awesome! My baby was able to figure out how to hold onto the toy to keep the pacifier in her mouth, and then learned to keep it in through sucking. Now at 5 months, she loves to hold and pet this as a lovee, and she chews on all of the monkeys limbs when she isn’t in the mood to suck on the pacifier. Definitely a favorite toy in our house!
Great for newborns
This was the only pacifier that would stay in because it would lie on his tummy and because he wasn’t rolling it would stay in. He has this one and the puppy. The puppy looks cuter than the monkey in my opinion – but both have served their purpose and get a lot of comments from people too. Very cute. Easy to wash – just throw in the washing machine. Very happy with these and definitely recommend.
The tip of the pacifier is completely rounded as opposed to the slightly curved ones that contour to the inside of the baby’s mouth better. I suppose it all comes down to the child’s preference… in our case the little one isn’t a fan of the strictly cylindrical pacifier nipple so he won’t keep this in his mouth for long. Still fun though and can serve as a slight distraction.Pros:Very cute, lightweight monkey. Almost worth it just for the stuffed animalSturdy pacifier with no rubbery taste, holds up to bitersCons:The monkey is only attached to one end of the pacifier, which makes me worry that it will rip off if the little one decides to pull too hard. Every time I pick it up I think "I hope this doesn’t rip off as easily as it feels like it could…"
I was under the impression that the monkey would be like a beanie baby… meaning heavier. It’s really light and all the baby needs to do is move an arm and it pulls the pacifier out of her mouth. Also, the pacifier is permanently attached to the monkey which makes washing it difficult – either the monkey or the pacifier when it falls on the ground.
Great for babies at night
These are great for infants at night because they are easy for them to find in the dark. You can wash them in the washer and dry them as well.
First, the Soothie pacifier which is attached to the monkey is not as well designed as the Gumdrop pacifier. The Soothie has a circular disc which smooshes my baby’s nose as he sucks on the pacifier, whereas the Gumdrop is designed around the nose.Second, the Soothie is at an awkward angle because one end is sewn to the monkey. This would be only good to enable the baby to push the pacifier out if he didn’t want it anymore. But my newborn doesn’t have the ability to keep the pacifier in his mouth, which is the whole reason why I bought this product. I found it actually works better to place the puppy UPSIDE DOWN then insert the pacifier into my baby’s mouth.Third, the monkey is very light. I wish it were weighted down with a bean bag of some sort. My son is big and strong (15 lbs at 2 months) and twists and wriggles in his crib so the monkey doesn’t stay on his chest. We no longer swaddle him. The only time the Wubbanub works is if he’s wearing a zippered sleep sac or hoodie so we tuck the monkey into his hoodie/ sleep sac so it actually stays in place.
Our 2 month old daughter loves this binky as its one of the only kinds she will take. It’s also much easier for us to keep track of. She is beginning to be able to hold onto the toy now as well, which is nice.
My baby doesn’t like it so much. He chockes with the pacifier. I don’t know why.
love this product!
my 4 month old had problems holding in pacifier during sleeping and we had to get up multiple times during the night to put pactifier in…this product stays in much better than a regular pactifier and she loves it! it puts her right to sleep…and now she can put it in herself!
We love our wubs! I have recommended to many friends. If your baby uses a soothie pacifier these are great! My baby has three and the monkey is BY FAR his favorite. Tip–throw it in the washing machine with the loads and loads of laundry you are now doing and then air dry and it’s good to go!
Small- but worth it.
My 4 month old loves this!!! I am thinking about getting another one just so that we can have a back up.
Love these. The animal provides a little weight so an infant doesn’t spit it out. Also, easy for them to find in the crib at night.
My baby loves it.
My baby loves his monkey soothie! Even when he is not sucking on the soothie he likes to hold on to the monkey. He is only 2 months old, so he doesn’t have very good hand coordination yet. When a regular soothie is in his mouth it is harder for him to keep it in. But with this soothie he can hold on to the monkey and the soothie stays in his mouth longer which makes him happy.If the monkey needs to be washed I just pop the whole thing into the washer and then air dry it. Then I clean the soothie part with hot water or a pacifier wipe and it is ready to go for him. It is our go to soothie when he is cranky.
great idea, wish I had thought of it first
bought it for my niece and she’s addicted, even if only to hold. Great for parents because you don’t have to worry as much about the kids spitting out the pacifier and losing it to the ground. Was easy for me to reach back and give it back to my kids and then they learned to reach for it themselves.
My 2 month old daughter constantly loses her pacis, the wubba has given her something to hang on to…. it’s great for the trips where I can’t put her paci back in for her over and over again.
