How to sterilize a Wubbanub pacifier

Maybe it’s allergies, maybe it’s a little cold but everyone in our house has been a little stuffy lately. With a new baby I’m on high alert because my daughters are obsessed with giving their new sister kisses… aka, smothering their little sister’s face with their wet mouths and runny noses. No thanks!

I’ve been pretty good about having them kiss the top of her head, or not at all but one thing I can’t seem to keep track of are her pacifiers! My toddler always seems to find them and proudly bring them to us after she’s tested them out herself.

It was all fine until Winter got ahold of Olive’s Wubbanub. If you don’t know what a Wubbanub is, it’s a pacifier that’s attached to a little cozy animal.

I was like great… the puppy doesn’t detach so how in the world am I supposed to sterilize this now?!

I did not like suggestions that the Google offered such as soaking it in soapy water, using a sanitizing wipe, and even running it through the washing machine using a “baby” detergent. I didn’t want to use anything that involved chemicals so those were no-go’s for me.

I’m sure I’m not the only one who has wondered this so let me share with you how to sanitize them, chemical-free!

All you need to do is boil a pot of water on your stove, dangle the pacifier in the boiling water for 5 minutes, let it dry and wala, that’s it! Just do your best to hold it out of the way of the steam because ouch! You’re welcome!
