Our family has a thing for wombats so when we got to choose one of the three Australian animals from the fabulous Goolie Goolie range we didn’t hesitate to pick Bluey the Wombat. A pacifier combined with comforter, Bluey quickly became baby’s friend and part of the family. Whilst my baby loves his Goolie Goolie (as you’ll see in the video), I love it even more because it has made settling at bedtime more pleasant, and it has dramatically reduced the number of times I have to get up in the night and pop the dummy back in bub’s mouth. It also makes reaching back in the car to find a lost but desperately wanted dummy a much easier task!
Designed in Australia and recommended for 0-6 month olds, the soothing pacifier piece is made from medical grade silicone with a teat that closely resembles a human nipple (as a breastfeeding mum this was a really important feature for me). The attached plush doll (you can choose between wombat, kangaroo or koala) is lightweight and provides cuddly comfort for bub. It makes the dummy easy for baby to find and grasp in the cot, pram or carseat without the use of chains, clips, or strings that can sometimes pose a safety hazard. We found that the plush toy also helps keep the dummy in place and stops it from falling too far away when he spat it out in his sleep.
Bluey the Wombat was easy to clean. Although the two pieces don’t detach, I simply washed the dummy in warm soapy water then stuck the whole thing on the top rack of our steam steriliser.
I’ll definitely be investing in another Goolie Goolie because I’d hate to get stuck somewhere without Bluey – I think we’ll have one for the house and one for the car. I just need to decide if we get another Bluey the Wombat, or mix it up with Rusty the Kangaroo or Banjo the Koala?
Maybe you can help me decide by participating in the Babymusthaves.net Facebook giveaway where you can win a Goolie Goolie for YOUR baby.
