Frequently Asked Questions

What are some times Soothie Sleeve can be useful?

Great question! My hope is that it will become your childā€™s most loved stuffed animal and provide years of comfort.

Here are some perfect times to use your Soothie Sleeve to start:

ā€¢ A babysitter can comfort your child with their favorite Soothie Sleeve
ā€¢ Allows Mom to sleep through a nighttime feeding while someone else (Dad, Grandma, Nanny, etc) gives the baby a bottle
ā€¢ Daycare/Nanny can use to comfort your child while you work
ā€¢ Toddler can snuggle their Soothie Sleeve to comfort them all night for less frequent awakenings
ā€¢ Can soothe your child while you are away on a work trip

Do you offer additional sleeves for purchase?

Each Soothie Sleeve comes with one standard size sleeve and we are including a slightly stretchier additional sleeve as part of our initial launch. We currently also offer an expanded size sleeve option for use with larger arms. We plan to offer additional sleeves in the original colors and new colors/patterns in the future to allow for more flexibility if your original sleeve is in use or being washed and you need to wear another one.

Can my child sleep with their Soothie Sleeve?

Yes, as long as they are over 12 months! The American Academy of Pediatrics safe sleep recommendations for the first 12 months include keeping soft objects like stuffed animals away from the sleep area. So, you can certainly use the Soothie Sleeve to calm and soothe your baby during their bedtime snuggles but then remember to remove the animal from the crib prior to them going to sleep.

When will my order ship?

Soothie Sleeves ship in 1-2 business days

Is the Soothie Sleeve washable?

ā€¢ We recommend you only spot clean your Plush Animal.
ā€¢ The Sleeve can be hand washed or washed on a delicate cycle. Lay flat to dry.

Ellie & book

Purchased for my 2yr old who has to go between homes and has separation anxiety both during these times and daycare. She immediately loved how soft ellie the elephant is and loved the book. 4 stars only because the sleeve had a smell to it when it arrived so I didn't know if I wanted it to smell like fresh laundry or if I should just wear it longer to get my scent. Suggestion for a future purchase, I would love if we could personalize the sleeve with a family photo! Will be purchasing more for babyshower gift.

Treasured Gift

I purchased Emma the Elephant for a client who just had a baby and she LOVES it! This is her 3rd child and had never seen anything like this before. She's so excited for her daughter to "feel" her presence while she's working, sleeping, or taking care of the rest of the family. Thanks, Mini-Duckings, for the creating and excellent product. You scored me some extra brownie points!

Love the soothie bunny and company!

I have gotten three bunnies and my son and I love them! I will continue to buy not only because my son absolutely loves his bunny, but because of the customer service shown by the founder -Sarah. She is very compassionate and truly cares about her product and customers! So happy we found this company and something my son absolutely adores! The bunny is so soft and cute, and he takes it EVERYWHERE he goes. We will be returning customers again!!

Lifesaver for my son!

My son is an ultimate momma's boy at 4 months old. His bear is the only thing that has kept him calm while away from me and it's worked so well, his teachers have suggested it to other parents of kids in his class. Thinking of buying one for my 2 year old since she is getting into a "I only want momma" phase again.

So cute!

Iā€™m gifting this to my now 2 month old granddaughter for Christmas. I think her parents and she will love it! The sweet little lamb resembles my granddaughter!
