Wubbanub…

Here’s something that sounds completely ridiculous, but is brilliant!   Wubbanub :)  Collin has really only taken to the Soothie pacifiers.  We have a bunch of other types, but these funky little pieces of blue plastic are his favorites!  Wubbanubs are little stuffed animals that have a Soothie pacifier attached to them.  They seem sooooo silly, and I’ll admit that I felt a little like a knick-knack gimmick lover when I bought it, but WOW do they work.  The idea is that the little animal helps keep the pacifier in place and within the reach distance for newborns.  And, then as the baby gets older, they use the animal as a little comfort object.  Well, we have had our little frog friend for a total of one day.  Here are the results.  Collin has held onto his froggy when being picked up or when lying down. He also slept in his crib on his own for all three of his naps today. The first time EVER!  (I will say that I checked on him often as I was a little skeptical of this whole idea).   But, we are sold on them at this point.  Here’s to very weird ingenious inventions.  And, many thanks to Carissa, who let me know that these even existed!

Ok…tomorrow the family heads off to Lawrence Welk Resort in San Diego County for a few days of rest and relaxation with the Erquiaga/Rea/Kayser family!  We’ll see you when we get back.
