I LOVE LOVE LOVE wubbanubs. And so do my twin boys. We had 6-8 in rotation when we were in pacifier stage. I love the soft cuddly, easy to grip stuffed animal the most. We had a bunch of different kinds and the alligator is a good one, doesn't pill when washed repeatedly. And I know some are curious how to sanitize. We had thrush early on and I hated the idea of tossing our wubbanubs, so I boiled them in a pot on the stove for twenty minutes and then washed them in the washing machine. After they wash I hung dry and then washed and rinsed the pacifier part only. Worked great, fully sanitized and after treatment we had no more thrush issues. So they can be sanitized and washed, just so you know! And as for the price... Worth every penny!
I received my item today. It is a clear counterfeit. The packaging was terrible. The tags were all wrong. It is a cheap and terrible knock off. My order was fulfilled by amazon and I was shocked to see that they would send such a terrible fake. It all said limited edition especially for babyhaven.com. No wonder I haven't seen it anywhere else. It's a sham! I read that babyhaven.com was a scam so I expected that I would at least get legit stuff if shipped by amazon. Boy was I wrong! Out of the 3 wubbanubs that I ordered two were a clear fake! I probably won't be buying anything from amazon in the future!
The wubbanub is fantastic! We started using it when our child was 6 months of age; at this time, she would scream when she was unable to find her pacifier. Once we started using this item, the screaming disappeared--she was finally able to locate the gator and place it in her mouth; she continues using it now at 12 months of age. This item is easy to handle and she also enjoys sucking on the gator legs. Also, when this item is dropped, it does not bounce away. Our child adores the wubbanub. May be washed in the washing machine and dried in the dryer without the nipple losing its shape...fantastic!
Pros: *Cute, I get comments from people all the time on how neat/cute it is *Easier to find in moment of screaming baby panic than a traditional pacifier *Stuffed animal makes it easier for baby to hold *Ability to tuck stuffed animal into straps of car seat to keep in place for baby
Cons: *Pacifier doesn't attach, so you must wash the whole thing or wash just the pacifier part very carefully. *Body of stuffed animal doesn't balance/ stay on little's laying-down chest one as well as animals with longer limbs.
Overall, as great product. I bought 2 since this one is a limited addition- I would be sad if we lost this one! It's just so cute, FL relatives get a kick out of it too.
I thought paying over $10 for a pacifier was ridiculous, but Wubbanubs are worth every penny. They help keep the pacifier in place, and my son loves playing with the stuffed animal portion. I believe it helps with his motor skills. The only downside is that my dog thinks it's his chew toy, ha! That is obviously not a fault of the product, though. Good thing it's easy to wash and dry. :) We also have the giraffe and longhorn wubbanubs. I think the animals with the longer legs (the giraffe and longhorn) stay in place a bit better because their feet are weighted a bit more, but we love all of them.
He loves his wubbanub. He uses it all the time and it comes in handy at night when he is searching for it half asleep he can find it easily. Hes like his little pal. Very easy to wash just toss into the washer and dry and its perfect very well made he has beaten the crap out of it and it is still holding strong.
We were using the pacifiers that the hospital first gave our newborn. We had to constantly replace them in his mouth, especially hard when he is in his car seat, and fussing in the car. At a friend's recommendation, I bought this WubbaNub, not knowing if my baby would take a different pacifier. He took to it right away! The animal helps it stay in his mouth, especially in the car seat--we can rest the animal on his chest, and the pacifier stays in the correct position for him to hold in his mouth. A great find. I'll be buying more!
My Son Loved this item! He was not a paci baby, and I wanted to have one thing that he would enjoy to give me a little time... well this was it! The alligator shape was great too, easy for him to handle.
