WubbaNubs, winner of numerous awards, were designed by a mom who was looking to sooth her own crying baby. WubbaNubs start with a soothie made of premium latex free silicone. It is then permanently attached to an adorable plush little critter. This genius idea helps prevent that little "life saver" from being dropped, lost or maybe forgotten somewhere.
The little plush animal is perfect to hang on to, being light weight and very soft. A soothie and a snuggly all in one.
WubbaNubs are ideal for the NICU. Preemies or sick babies usually love to suck on something. You will often find them sucking on feeding tubes. Even though preemies want to suck just as any newborn does, they often do not have the strength to hold a pacifier in their mouth. For this a WubbaNub is a real winner in my mind. We used to stand with Ava literally for hours, holding her little paci in for her so she could suck away. A WubbaNub is light enough that it can sit right on them, giving them a sense of being snuggled while they can contently suck away soothing themselves.
A great idea is for mom to spend a night snuggling with the WubbaNub herself in order to leave her scent on it. That way as your preemie soothes his or her self she will have the additional comfort of smelling mommy close by even when you can not be there!! So fantastic!!!
