My daughter’s little snuggly friend!

Great in helping to keep her Ci-Ci in her mouth with just a little weight to keep it from falling out. It helps if she puts her arm or hand behind its head and a gentle fall out of her mouth is quickly recovered but it doesn’t survive a spit out or quick fall out—still great! One less time to reach over to put it in. I’d say it helped to keep it in 30% more than without. It also is great for her to snuggle and suck to soothe! Definitely helps that soothies are one of her favorites too. Great! Soft! Comforting in more ways than 1!

Cool idea, but hate the pacifier

I thought this little invention would solve our nightly issue of fussiness b/c of a lost pacifier. Perhaps if the Soothie pacifiers weren’t so huge, my baby girl could keep it in her mouth. The Wubbanub would have worked perfectly if the design of the pacifier was different. I’ll try again when she “finds her hands”, maybe she will be able to place it into her own mouth then. If not, it was just another gimmick I fell for.

Hospital style pacifier, Great for little hands and They never get lost!!

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. The tabby kitten is 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.

Who doesn’t love a WubbaNub? This combination pacifier and friend has been very popular with my child for his first two years of life. And now, to try to get him away from the beloved pacifier…this is the goal. Eventually they do get a bit worn at the seams but that is after LOTS of use!

Cute WubbaNub

Love the WubbaNubs and this Tabby Kitten. Looks just like the picture. Only problem is by the time I ordered it my granddaughter lost interest in pacifiers.

Marian Empire, CO

Loved it so much, just ordered another one!

I was concerned that my 4.5 month old wouldn’t like the Soothie pacifier part of the WubbaNub since she hadn’t used one, but she likes it as much as her GumDrop pacifiers. She LOVES this paci because it’s easier to hold and keep in her mouth. It’s the only paci I’ve ever seen her able to put back in her mouth if it falls out (she has done that 5 times that we know of!) I love the WubbaNub because she looks so darn cute kneading the little kitty as she is sucking the paci.

Shelly Boise City, OK


bought these for my daughter because they were not only adorable but they are GREAT at night because they usually stayed on her chest when the paci fell out. Even if it fell to the side of her, they are so easy to find in the middle of the night when you’re half asleep!!! also thought they would be great for her to hold onto when she gets a little older.Specifically I think the cat one has the softest material. I also have the lion, dog, monkey and caterpillar. This one by far is the softest one but they are all super adorable and worth the money. I wish you could get these with other brands of pacifiers attached (ie Nuk or Mam)

Maureen Orlando, WV

Cute and functional…

Our baby loves her kitty pacifier! It’s helpful to have the animal attached to keep the pacifier from going flying and makes it easier for baby to hold on to. Our little girl is just 6 weeks old and is already starting to hold on to the kitty and has been able to put the pacifier back in her mouth a couple of times. (mostly accidentally of course, but she couldn’t have done that with a regular pacifier!)The only down side is that you can’t detach the pacifier and wash it separately. We threw the whole thing in a lingerie bag and washed it in the washing machine, then wash the pacifier by hand in the sink being careful not to soak the kitty.

Very cute

Purchased this as a gift. It is so funny to see baby use this – he looks like he is kissing a kitten!Pacifiers are necessities and this one is soooo cuteItem arrived on time

Simone Worthville, PA

super cute

These are so adorable I’ve purchased many in the past. They are sturdy and if they get dirty I just hand wash them and them they dry fast. Ive even thrown in the dryer with cloths and no dryer sheets for a couple of minutes and its perfect. I always rinse the binkie part again just to be sure it’s ok. The pacifier is a soothie one just like the one you get in the hospital I love it and I always give these to friends as a gift with regular soothie pacifiers.

Cute, but the giraffe one works better

I originally got the giraffe Wubbanub and that works great (not spit-proof but helps tremendously). I bought this as a backup but it’s a little smaller and lighter than the giraffe one so therefore it doesn’t work as well. Still helps though.

Molly Ravensdale, WA

so so cute ! love it

I have already ordered more . This is so cute I just fell in love with it the minute I opened it.

Nichole Riverton, IA

These are awesome!

I have probably a good dozen binkies around my house. And at any one time, I can guarantee you that I don’t know where at least half of them are. My carpet is sage green, so trying to find a dropped binky in the middle of the night just doesn’t happen. But I always know where my wubbanub is! We have the cat and the frog – one for our girl and one for our boy. Not only does it help us to easily find the binky, but it also helps the binky to stay more upright when it drops, AND it helps the binky to stay in our babies’ mouths. If they are upright, the added weight may help it fall out easier if they aren’t sucking aggressively, but when sitting or laying down, it’s just awesome.I love these! I don’t know what I did without these with my other two kids!

Elsie Collinsville, AL

Saves me from doing the drop and pick up pacifier game…

My son loves Wubbanubs and I love them even more. Even at a month old he’s figured out how to hold the animal in place. The only thing with the kitten one is that the body isn’t long, so its harder to hold in place like the monkey one.

My kiddos love their pacifiers and as they grow out of using them I cut the pacifier off the animal and they still have their little lovey to comfort them.

Andrea Bentley, LA

Baby loves it, but not optimal quality

My daughter has had the dog version of this for a while. She loves it, but she is now obsessed with cats. I ordered this one for her crib. She loves it, but within a week or so, the cat’s nose has come unstitched. Not the quality I was expecting. I didn’t think I would have to be sewing it so soon.

Nadine Fries, VA

We 💚 WubbaNubs!

I purchased this product after using the Phillips Avent Soothie Pacifiers for my little daughter. They are the only pacifiers she has ever taken. It’s also the kind they gave her while she was in the NICU at the hospital. I am so glad someone came up with this idea!Pros:1. Cute animal for girls or boys!2. Easy to keep track of – easy to see in a dark bedroom at night & also when you are holding the baby, they are much easier to grab as they are falling than a Paci alone3. Stays in better than a Soothie Paci by itself – we often prop the animal on her chest and she seems to love holding on to the soft stuffed animal & can even sometimes push it back into her own mouthCons:1. Tedious cleaning – I usually wash them on gentle in the washing machine & let it air dry but worry about my daughter ingesting detergent residue so I usually then wash off the pacifier top with a pacifier wipe2. Falls out – not as much as when it’s only the pacifier – could just be my daughters tongue pushing it out or something but I think worth mentioning

Celeste Lake George, NY

Really helps!

Our daughter came out sucking when she was born, so much so that the dr told me if we didn’t give her a pacifier she would suck until I was literally raw. As a mom who wanted to continue to breast feed with the least amount of pain, I took the drs advice but she had a hard time getting the paci back in her mouth by herself. We bought her this & now she can easily grab her kitty & use that to guide her paci to her mouth, works great!

Kathi Moore, ID

the best

I bought this a couple weeks ago because I wanted a pacifier with a little weight so when she spits it out it stays there and does not drop to her side or on the floor. My daughter loves this, and prefer it to her other Soothies, don’t ask me why. The stuffed animal is very soft and safe for infants. There is a tag but you can cut it if you want. The only thing is that the pacifier is glued/sewn to the stuffed animal amking it hard to wash/sterilize. When I first got it, I sterilized in a pot of boiling water using thongs (as recommende by another reviewer) since I couldn’t put it in the electric sterilizer (Didn’t want the stuffed animal part to be wet). When I was done I realized that I had burnt some parts of the stuffed animal – you can tell because those parts are a little rougher than other areas. I have not sterilized it since, I’ve only cleaned it using hsoap and hot water.

Kara Bonifay, FL

best paci ever!!!

My daughter LOVES the wubbanub! The weight of the kitty keeps it in her mouth much easier than a regular soothie, and I can even "tuck the kitty in" with another receiving blanket around her to keep it from falling. She loves feeling the plush and uses it to help get in her mouth herself now that she’s a bit older.

Kitty Greenbank, WA


I love this! It’s so cute and my daughter loves that she has something to hold on to. She actually pulls her pacifier out less since she is holding onto the animal.

The best pacifier for young babies

This is an amazing pacifier. It actually stayed in my 6 week old daughter’s mouth! The soothie pacifier is the only kind my baby likes, but I was constantly having to pick it up or hold it in her mouth for her. She was too young to hold it in her mouth herself. The wubbanub is weighed down by the attached stuffed animal and it rests on your baby’s chest. So if it does fall out, it can usually be recovered by your little one. This was a lifesaver during a 7 hour car ride! I’m such a fan that I bought a second one because I don’t know what I would do if we ever lost or misplaced the original one we bought

Doreen Mid Florida, FL

No more paci searching – these are hard to lose, but be careful if you have a chewer…

My daughter LOVED these wubanubs and used them from day one. I loved them because they could be easily found by me when they fall on the floor or get carried around the house.When she was 18 months, I noticed she had almost completely chewed the nipple off the pacifier, it was barely hanging on and could have choked on it! This could happen with any pacifier I suppose – but I just wanted to let people know. I bought another and within a few days she chewed a hole through the nipple again. So no more of these for her!! She must have razor teeth or something. She now has been using the regular soothies (she had newborn ones from before and the 3+ month ones) and hasnt manages to chew those up. Im not sure what it is about these that she is able to chew them up like that. Anyhow, I just toss these in the wash to clean, I suppose you could boil them if you really wanted to sanitize.

The tabby kitten wubbanub is very cute and helps the pacifier stay in place for my daughter. The main reason I like it is its very easy to keep track of instead of the tiny pacifiers that I keep losing around the house.

My Baby’s Favorite

Cute, durable, washable, and fits easily into little hands. Also, very difficult to lose! I get a lot of compliments on these and own 3 total. To wash, I place in wash machine on cold setting, no detergent or baby detergent, then air dry.

Lacy Cynthiana, IN

Very cute idea!

This is adorable and we are hoping will keep our little one from losing her "nini" so much. Very sweet and soft, the right size for our little one, only 2 months old, and we are thinking it may become a favorite over time. Will probably be looking to buy more in the near future. Probably a bit over-priced, but if it helps….it will be worth it!

Rosemarie Sugar Land, TX

Love our Wubbys!

This is by far the best purchase I have made. My daughter loves her Wubby! I didn’t like the idea of pacifiers since I was EBF and I didn’t wanna give her confusion. Anyways I bought one to have on hand before she was born. I gave her Wubby at 3 months and she loves it, no confusion either. We have a total of 4 of them now lol, we have two in her crib and two in the car. She loves to actually snuggle with her wub. For all you breast feeding moms that are looking for a great paci I would highly recommend to get a wubbanub, also I suggest sleeping with it the first two night to get your scent on the wub so it’s comforting to the baby 🙂

Rachelle Arlington, OH


We love our wubs. I have bought almost all the animals I think. These are the greatest if you are down with pacis

Becky Berea, KY

Great product!

I had gotten the duck which my daughter loves so I bought the kitty cat. She loves it too! She prefers her WubbaNubs over just the plain pacifiers. The seller I bought it from was fast on their shipment. The package arrived a day before it thought to get here. I am sure there will be more WubbaNubs I will buy for my family and friends babies (and another one for my daughter). I wish I had these with my other two kids.

Pacifiers are called “kitties” at our house

I got this in the hope to get my second kid hooked on pacifiers. If anything to maybe enjoy a car ride with an infant, as my first child was miserable to be around when in a vehicle. Six months later: She uses it, cuddles it, loves flinging it around. The 2 year old loves it and made it her personal mission to be on "kitty fetching duty", for the baby whenever she fussed. We love it cause she’s happy in the car, sleeps with it when she’s not cosleeping, and it’s cute.Our first one the nose embroidery unraveled at about 4 months, but I just cut it off, so what if kitty has a pink nose or not. We got a second and I noticed that old and new were quite similar; with weekly/biweekly soaks in oxiclean, 6 months of wear doesn’t really show. Now one lives in the carseat and one lives in the crib. The product picture is slightly different, the kitties have white "pads" to the feet, not tabby pattern.Happy with our purchase, worth the expense.
