Fabulous Baby Inventions from Nuby – Review and Giveaway

Back at the end of December, it was a normal early evening at our house, where we were just entering ‘The Witching Hour’ – this hour is probably well known to parents of toddlers, it usually falls from 4pm onwards, when they’re a bit tired, a bit bored, a bit hungry. It’s a little too early for tea time and the toys are holding no interest… I was trying to stop Frey from playing with his brother a bit over-enthusiatically when there was a knock at the door… it was a courier with a giant box of goodies from NubyUK. We were saved! This fantastic parcel kept Frey happy right up until bedtime and beyond.

Frey, Alfie and I are brand reps for Nuby UK, and they sent us a parcel of joy, full of fabulous baby inventions for us to review. Here is how we have been getting on..

Nuby Bottles

Nuby Natural Touch Bottles, Anti Colic Bottles and UberSoothers

Firstly, the Natural Touch bottles are really very cute, covered in hearts and starts, with the quote ‘I love you to the moon and back’. They come with a super soft teat which Nuby say is inspired by the shape, texture and natural flex of mum’s breast encouraging babies to latch-on more easily for a less stressful and happier feeding time. The easy latch teat has 3 advanced valves allow air to flow back into the bottle for a continuous feed and contented baby.

Alfie was only 2 months old when these bottles arrived and I was still feeding him expressed milk. I was actually having some problems with the flow of the bottles I was using, they seemed to have too fast a flow for such a little baby and he was often gagging on his milk making feeding time quite stressful for him, so I was pleased to have these new Nuby bottles to try. They have been brilliant – I love the chunky shape of them and Alfie has fed very well from them right from when we first used them. I am so impressed with the teats, he seems to latch onto them so well and his problems with milk flowing too fast were solved. As I write my review he is now nearly 4 months old and is still doing so well with these teats. I love these bottles so much I’m going to order the next size teat for when he is ready, I can see them lasting us a long time.

The box of bottles also comes with a Nuby Snoozies, which is a very cute little monkey to attach onto a soother, also included in the box. Again, the soother has the ‘cherry’ shape to it, again that Alfie seems to favour. The parcel also contained an extra pack of two of Nuby’s UberSoothers, which are suitable for babies from 0-18 months. I find that using a soother helps calm Alfie down when he is suffering with the painful wind that babies often get – he loves them.

Snug N Dry Milk Feeding Bibs

Also included for Alfie was a pack of two ‘Snug N Dry’ Milk Feeding Bibs. I find that tiny babies don’t really get dirty like toddlers do, with the exception of under the chin where all those milk dribbles gather! I remember seeing these bibs when Frey was a baby and really wanting to give them a try, and they really are great. Alfie seems to find them really comfy, and they do protect his clothes, meaning less changing and washing! I keep one in my changing bag and one on the bedside table for night feeds.

Nuby Icy Bites Keys

Icy Bites Keys

These are an incredible invention. I actually had a set of these when Frey was a baby, and I recommended them recently to a new mum at baby massage class, so I was so happy to get a set for Alfie too.

Nuby says..

Nuby’s Icy Bite Keys Teether has multiple teething surfaces to help relieve the discomfort of sore and tender gums. They are easy for little hands to hold and uses PureIce Gel, which stays cooler for longer compared to water filled teethers.  Place in the fridge (only) for cooling the gel.

Advised for younger babies around 3 months of age with the on-set of teething.  Encourages oral motor skills, helping the development of lips, tongue, jaw and the hard and soft palates.  The movement of which are very important in speech development, safe swallowing and consuming various textures.

These were one of the first things Alfie grabbed on his own, and Frey had great fun handing them to him to play with! Alfie hasn’t started teething yet but I know that these were invaluable when Frey was teething, we took them everywhere with us.

Nuby Toddler Products

360 Maxi No Spill Cup and Sure Grip Feeding Bowl

I’d never seen a cup like this, and it’s another brilliant invention, this time for a toddler. Frey can drink from it as though he is drinking from a ‘grown up’ cup, but it’s got a clever ‘no-spill’ design. It comes apart completely and comes with it’s own cleaning brush so it’s easy to keep clean, and it has quickly become Frey’s favourite cup!

Nuby 360 Cup

As for the bowl – wow, Nuby have invented something that stops Frey launching his bowl of food across the room. It’s a fantastic bowl, which not only sticks to the tray of the high chair, but is made from insulating silicone which helps the food stay warmer for longer, and is both oven and microwave safe. Brilliant, I wish I’d discovered it sooner.

Nuby Bath Toy

Bathtime Submarine

Saving Frey’s best for last, he loves this bath time submarine. It’s got a string which you pull and then let the submarine whizz through the water, which my toddler is happy to do over and over again. So much so, I’ve been able to comb the knots out of his mane of hair a lot more easily with the submarine to distract him!

Believe it or not, this is just a really small selection of the products that are available from Nuby. If you have a little one I’d really recommend you visit their website.. you may just find something that solves a problem or two, or three…!

Nuby have also kindly provided a second giant box of goodies, exactly the same as the one I received, as a prize to one of my readers. If you would like to be in with a chance of winning, you can enter using the rafflecopter below. The giveaway will run until midnight on Sunday 12th February 2017. Good Luck!

    I love the Ubersoother from the bundle as my little girl having suffered from colicvwhen she was born still has trouble with gas and passing motion so hopefully this will help, I also noticed when I looked them up that they have bumps around the base which would also help with my daughters teething esp as she’s too young to hold teethers in her mouth at the moment x

  41. Edward Guerreiro | 12th Feb 17

    I think it would be the 360 Maxi No Spill Cup. We have one already. But having more would be very useful, as we could leave it at nans house.

  42. Sarah R | 12th Feb 17

    The teething keys will be the most useful for us

  43. koala9876@hotmail.com | 12th Feb 17

    Just about the whole bundle would be useful but the bibs oh the bibs for my messy pup twins :-)

  44. Danielle Graves | 12th Feb 17

    I think the 360 maxi no spill cup would be brilliant nothing worse than a leaky cup or one that spills easy.

  45. Natalie Gillham | 13th Feb 17

    Bath time would be so much more fun with the Bathtime Submarine x
