WubbaNub


Celebrating 18 years & “Tons of Love in every Wub!”

WubbaNub is a premium pacifier made of latex-free, medical grade silicone that’s permanently attached to a little plush toy – making it easy for Mom to find, should it get separated from its baby!

The brainchild of mompreneuer Carla Schneider, the WubbaNub is the original design that sparks a bit of a revolution in the pacifier business, with its innovative baby pacifier-and-plush combination. This one-piece solution has made WubbaNub a leader in the baby industry since 1999, which has garnered a slew of industry awards and accolades.

Baby’s First Friend

Made by Connecticut-based Trebco Specialty Products Inc., WubbaNub soothes baby’s “fussy time” in a way that no other product can. Ideal for newborns less than six months (not suggested for children who are teething), the patented design makes it easy for babies to grasp and nearly impossible for them (or their parents) to lose. Plus, the company’s line of plush animal characters provides instant comfort for children. “Our core philosophy at WubbaNub is simple: to create products that we would feel safe giving to our own children,” they say. “A WubbaNub is often one of a baby’s first friends in life, and we are humbled to become a part of your family.”

How WubbaNub is Born

New Mom Carla has an aha moment while on a family vacation. “With my newborn son, Bret, in tow, we looked forward to a relaxing week away from home,” she says. “Baby Bret, however, was unable to relax without the comfort of his beloved pacifier. His pacifier was difficult for his tiny hands to grasp, and he dropped it often. Faced with a tearful child, I desperately needed a way to ensure that he was able to keep his pacifier nearby without my help. His favorite soft plush toy caught my eye, and I grabbed the hotel sewing kit. In a moment of inspiration, I sewed his pacifier onto his plush, and the first WubbaNub was born.”

WubbaNubs can now be found in boutiques, specialty shops and major retailers across the globe, as well in hospitals, NICU and well-baby units nationwide.

MAM recently joined forces with the United Nations Foundation’s Shot@Life Campaign, matching all gifts made to Shot@Life up to $25,000 during this year’s #GivingTuesday, which began on December 1. The Shot@Life campaign is rallying to support for polio immunizations around the globe. Polio, a disease that once crippled hundreds of thousands of children each year, is now 99% eradicated and only remains endemic in two countries, Afghanistan and Pakistan.

“Polio anywhere is a threat everywhere so we must remain diligent in our efforts to combat this horribly disabling disease,” says Devi Thomas, Director, Shot@Life campaign. “With support from MAM we hope to raise funding and awareness for polio so we can put an end to this disease for good.”

Last year, MAM helped support Shot@Life’s efforts to provide thousands of pneumonia vaccines to children in developing countries during the #GivingTuesday campaign.

“For nearly 40 years, MAM has created products that promote the healthy development of babies,” says Isaac Cohen, Vice President of Marketing. “Our partnership with Shot@Life will enable us to further support our mission and reach more children across the globe.”

Still Time to Support Shot@Life

All gifts made to Shot@Life from December 1 through the end of 2015 will go to support ending polio globally.

In addition to its $25,000 matching contribution, MAM has created a line of Shot@Life branded pacifiers. One hundred percent of the proceeds from the limited edition pacifier sales will benefit Shot@Life.

A few years ago, new Mom Carla Schneider was hoping to enjoy her first vacation with her baby –and eventually, she did … after she found a way to soothe her little one’s non-stop fussing and crying. Crafty Carla put the hotel’s complimentary sewing kit to good use, attaching her baby’s favorite plush toy to a pacifier –and that’s what it took! Not only did she solve the “missing pacifier syndrome,” she created what is now known as The Original Plush Pacifier!
