As first time parents, hubby and I have been learning as we go and learning from our mistakes. One big problem we have is keeping up with our daughter’s pacifier while she’s in her carseat. Yes, I know that you are all probably saying “get a paci holder” well we have one, and our daughter knows how to pull it off so it just gets lost right along with the paci. The worst times are when Abby has dozed off and is starting to wake up. We need that paci to either help her fall back asleep or at least calm her to keep the tears from pouring down (and to silence the screaming, she hates waking up in a new place). It’s always a frantic search for the paci and it is always underneath her bottom. How in the world does it always manage to go there!!? So now we have two problems…Abby is awake and very upset plus we have to disturb her even more trying to get the paci out from under her. Usually by the time we can get our hands on the runaway paci she is good and awake and sometimes very cranky if she hasn’t gotten a good nap. An added frustration…Abby has now gotten more curious and wants to play with her paci; she will take it out of her mouth to “inspect it and then she gets upset when it falls down beside her out of her reach. This of course always happens while we are in the car and its impossible to turn around and find a lost paci.
Enough was enough, it was time to find something that would help us keep up with her pacifiers better and keep them within her little hands reach when she’s playing. I turned to the internet and started searching and came across Paci-Plushies. The Paci-Plushies looked really cute but were they what I was looking for? I went to the website to find out more. I couldn’t help but giggle when the main page loaded and I read “They’re not just cute, Paci-Plushies Hush the Fussies” lol of course after reading that I was extremely curious about these adorable little paci holders.
Paci-Plushies™ Pacifier Holders! Light weight plush characters attach to infant pacifiers, making the pacifier easy to find and easy for baby to place in it’s mouth.
*Paci-Plushies™ are the first and ONLY plush pacifier holder of it’s kind to attach to nearly all Name Brand pacifiers, both button and ring handled pacifiers. I especially like this about Paci-Plushies because I was worried I would have to switch my daughter’s pacifiers to one it was compatible with. This was a huge relief since Abby is very particular about her pacifiers and will only take NUKs.
*Makes keeping up with pacifiers easy! With our daughter’s pacifier attached to these adorable plush animals we no longer have to search for it in small places. The cute animal helps keep paci from working its way into hiding…and from getting underneath our daughter as she sleeps in the car. No more frantic searches!
*The Paci-Plushies Collection is 100% BPA and Phthalate Free!
*Boosts motor skills! Besides helping us keep up with our daughter’s paci this is my favorite benefit of the Paci-Plushie. Abby is able to hold onto her paci better and no longer gets mad when it goes down beside her. The plush animal makes her paci easy to pick back up and hold on to…and play with of course.
*Easy to Clean! Just take off the pacifier to wash and toss the stuffed animal in the washing machine.
Paci-Plushies Pacifier Holder is a wonderful product from Nookums Baby, a Mom Owned Business. I love having the opportunity to work with this wonderful company and help spread the word. Mom Owned Businesses are sometimes overlooked and with products as fantastic as the Paci-Plushies, this is one company that every mom should know about! Here’s a little more about the company:
Nookums, a New York based company, offers innovative and trendy products to the children’s market, including functional plush items, gift sets, and unique infant and toddler tidbits.

Nookums strives to create a culture where thinking outside of the box leads to fresh ideas that evolve into new and extraordinary products.
When we received our Paci-Plushies to review I knew this would be a product my family could benefit from. The minute I pulled it out of the package Abby was fascinated with it. Each Paci-Plushies comes with a White Nookums Brand orthodontic pacifier with a silicone nipple and each Paci-Plushies attaches to nearly all Name Brand pacifiers. The button pacifiers are a perfect fit but for babies like Abby that prefer a ring handled paci don’t worry! All you have to do is stretch the hug ring of the Paci-Plushies over the ring of your baby’s paci and it works great. Now I keep finding this statement when I look up information: Please note that NUK Pacifiers with the Ring Handle are compatible with Paci-Plushies™, but connect more loosely than other brands (don’t worry, they still get the job done!) Well, Abby uses a NUK paci with the ring handle and we have had no problems with the Paci-Plushies…unless she sits there and tries to pull it off lol then it slips a little but of course can’t come completely off since she can’t stretch it around the ring. Abby has even more fun playing with her paci now that it has a cute lil plush friend attached and she has a much easier time keeping up with it and keeping hold of it!
Abby gives Paci-Plushies Pacifier Holders a thumbs-up!!
She loves her new friend and we love being able to keep up with her pacifiers!
