Why does the WubbaNub I bought online have different packaging than the one I bought at the store?

Authentic WubbaNubs come in several types of packaging. To see the different packaging types, visit our authenticity page. For authorized retailers visit our store locator page.

Can my baby sleep with the WubbaNub?

WubbaNub can be used under observed napping and awake sucking. We're advocates for safe sleep as recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Consumer Product Safety Commission. For extended overnight sleep, use a pacifier without the plush. For more on safe sleep habits, visit our safety page.

Can I switch out the pacifier?

The one-piece design is what makes WubbaNub unique! The pacifier is permanently attached to the plush.

Are WubbaNub pacifiers orthodontically safe?

Yes, they are made with a Philips Avent soothie pacifier and are orthodontic. The collapsible and symmetrical nipples respect the natural development of baby's palate, teeth and gums.

How do I clean the WubbaNub?

Pacifier Nipple: Wash the nipple before initial use: Place the nipple portion in warm water using a mild liquid soap. Bring a pot of water to a boil. Remove it from heat and place the nipple portion of the WubbaNub into the water for 2 - 4 minutes to sterilize. Allow it to cool and squeeze the nipple to release the excess water inside. Now it's ready to use!

Plush: WubbaNubs are made lovingly by hand, so hand washing is the best method to preserve quality. It is also machine washable – place the WubbaNub in mesh laundry bag, wash on gentle cycle and allow to air dry. Make sure to wash the nipple before use (see above)

Sterilizer: A moist heat sterilizer unit can also be used with the WubbaNub product.

Is the WubbaNub dryer safe?

It's not recommended, as the heating element might affect the integrity of the silicone pacifier.

Are WubbaNubs dishwasher safe?

For sanitary reasons, we do not recommend placing the WubbaNub in the dishwasher.

Where can I get WubbaNubs with beans/pellets?

We do not have any WubbaNubs with beans/pellets in the feet left in distribution. If you would like to confirm the contents of your WubbaNub, please refer to the retail packaging and the label sewn into the plush animal. For more details, please visit the sustainability page.

Are the beans in the limbs of the plush baby safe?

Yes! The beans are sewn in separate safety sacks within the plush. The WubbaNub conforms to the ASTM F963-96a safety code requirements and is baby safe.

Why do some WubbaNubs have beans and others don’t?

We have removed the pellets from our product for sustainability reasons. It is possible that there are WubbaNubs on the market with pellets in the feet. If you would like to confirm the contents of your WubbaNub, please refer to the retail packaging and the label sewn into the plush animal. For more details please visit the sustainability page.

My baby has a latex allergy. Is this pacifier made of latex?

This pacifier is a latex free, medical grade silicone Soothie pacifier. It is also BPA and Pthalate free.

Is the plush animal’s fabric non-toxic?

Because of our commitment to safety, all of our dyes are non-toxic. They do not contain any lead or any type of heavy metals making them all non-AZO dyes. In addition, all of our fabrics are tested for color fastness.
