My baby hates diaper changes. Do all babies wriggle and scratch at diaper change time?

No, not all baby’s hate diaper changes. But every baby does go through a stage where they don’t want to lie still when having their diaper changed. Some are easily distracted so that the job can get done easily. Others are more strong willed, and every diaper change is an exhausting struggle which pushes your physical limitations.These are the baby’s that require 3 or 4 hands to change them when we only have 2 hands. By preparing yourself with a Bubba hug you know you wont have to struggle when this stage arrises.

Is there an age limit for Bubba hug?

Bubba hug can be used on newborns up to around 18 months of age. 18 months is an approximate age range as all babies come in different shapes, sizes and strengths. After this age, your baby should be developmentally ready to understand simple commands and may even be ready for potty training. Bubba hug can then be used as a bib.

Is there a user manual for this thing?

Not really (it’s a pretty simple product folks). Two quick steps will get you on your way to cleaner and easier diaper changes. First, place babies folded arms into the pouch, making sure the straps then go over and around the baby’s shoulders – as shown in the photos on our How to Use page, then button up the Bubba hug for a snug fit.

Are the materials safe for babies?

Yes of course. Bubba hug has been approved by global-wide safety standards and verified through SGS testing. SGS is a world-leading inspection, verification, testing, and certification company. We use 100% cotton, with a soft cotton stretch for the pouch. This means baby’s arms are kept snug while still allowing comfortable natural movement within the pouch.

Is there Velcro on the Bubba hug?

Nope. We tried using Velcro on earlier prototypes and tested them out, only to find it would either snag on babies clothing or hair causing discomfort. The buttons we use are very large so it’s easy to do up – even using one hand.

What’s with the two button hole options?

As babies come in all shapes and sizes, we have given two options to secure the Bubba hug around baby’s neck. You can choose the size that makes your baby’s arms feel most snug. We started out with the smaller button hole on our 5 month old, then progressed to the larger hole when she grew a little bigger.

What’s the return policy?
