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 pour into a mug. Then 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)

How do I get my baby to use the pacifier for the first time?
Suckling is a natural reflex and is soothing for babies. Introduce the pacifier when baby is content and happy or showing signs of wanting to suckle. Make it fun and share a loving interaction with baby. Touch the pacifier to their lips to encourage them to open their mouth. Lightly shaking the pacifier a little bit while in baby’s mouth or lightly tapping it with your finger nail will help in triggering baby’s instinct to suckle.
What if my baby is still unable to keep it in their mouth?
No worries, baby may need a little practice! While awake sucking pull it away slightly. This will help baby to learn how to suck it back before it is completely out of baby’s mount. The WubbaNub is a great pacifier training tool because it will not go far and the perfect size to cradle in baby’s arm avoiding it from rolling away.
Can I switch out the pacifier?
The one-piece design is what makes WubbaNub unique! The pacifier is permanently attached to the plush.
