A while ago, I ordered something called a “wubbanub”. It’s basically a pacifier attached to a super cute little toy animal. I got it because his pacifiers constantly get lost in the nooks and crannies when he spits it out and swats it away. Then I end up digging through his big pile of blankets, burp cloths, and boppy just to locate it. It would also help with his early motor skills such as grasping. Besides, they are SO CUTE!
I ordered one from amazon for around $14.95. Now, I realize that it’s a steep price but I figured the benefits outweighed the cost. I can’t even begin to tell you how many times I have played the game of “pacifier pick up” with the kid! I ordered “Levi the lion” for itty bot.
He wasn’t really having it to begin with but after several tries, he was actually starting to grasp Levi! And then within a week or two, he actually grabbed Levi and put the pacifier in his own mouth! Talk about proud mom over here!
Sorry for the bad cell phone quality!
All in all, I think it’s a cute little helpful item to have but the price is a little hefty. If you don’t mind splurging on a pacifier I would recommend it to my fellow mommies!
