Before They Can Talk Or Walk, Let Them Grasp The Excitement Of Fandom With Your Favorite Team, from the Houston Astros™ Bear To the New York Yankees™ Pinstripe Puppy
Orange, CT (June 27, 2019) — Babies sporting a sweet toothless smile can finally root, root, root for the home team thanks to WubbaNub’s Major League Baseball* (MLB) Collection. Nine big city teams join the original pacifier/plush animal maker that’s won awards for its soothing design. Tiny fingers can now grasp a lightweight New York Yankee pinstriped puppy or a Chicago Cubs bear.
Whether you call it a binky, paci or soother, the pacifier is a pleasure for both baby and parents with its power to calm even the fussiest infant. According to the Mayo Clinic, most babies have a strong sucking reflex. Some babies even suck their thumbs or fingers before they’re born. Beyond nutrition, sucking often has a soothing, calming effect. That’s why many parents rank pacifiers as must-haves, right up there with diaper wipes! With WubbaNub’s newest sports collection, even newborns can show some team spirit.
Ballpark attendees will be amused to see the New York Yankees Bear – one of two Yankees pacifier/plush designs — available for purchase in Yankee™ Stadium retail stores.
For anyone not familiar with the WubbaNub brand, they are a mainstay in hospitals, NICU and well-baby units nationwide. Made for newborns to baby’s first tooth appearance, each pacifier is medical-grade silicone (hence latex free). The unique style of the WubbaNub pacifier allows it to remain close and easily positioned by the baby. Parents appreciate the fact that it’s not easily dropped, lost or forgotten!
“Wubbas are a life saver! It doubles as a lovey and a pacifier, which is great,” reviewed an Anaheim, CA mom online. “It is also much harder for my son to lose while he is using it because of the stuffed animal on the end. It’s harder to lose in the diaper bag! That’s a win for me! I definitely consider this a must have!”
“The pacifiers are great and the plush toys make it even better,” wrote mom blogger It’s Baby Time. “They are also gender neutral making these the perfect gift to give an expectant mother.”
Whether purchasing as a baby shower present or as a welcome-home-baby gift, their popularity makes them a favorite in department stores such as Nordstrom, Dillards and Saks Fifth Avenue and in neighborhood stores including Target and Buy Buy Baby. Find them online at www.wubbanub.com.
WubbaNub is a safety-first company that mandates all infant/baby products are completely safety tested. The durable one-piece construction of the pacifier means no germs hiding between cracks. And there are no cords or clips. Parents can easily machine wash then air-dry their pacifier/plush friend.

On a family vacation, mompreneuer Carla Schneider was desperate to soothe her newborn son, who would fuss whenever his pacifier went missing. In an aha moment, she took a hotel sewing kit and a plush toy and created what is now, 20 years later, an extremely successful invention called The WubbaNub.
