Mostly, us dads lack breasts. And when we have them we’re shy about using them to sooth our babies.
A solution – The Jaguar.
The Jaguar swaps mom’s nipple for dad’s thumb, and baby doesn’t know the difference. In fact, there may be ways in which The Jaguar is even superior to a boob.
In the remainder of this article, I’ll point out a few key reasons why I’ve relied so heavily upon The Jaguar in soothing both of my daughters during infancy.
1. The Thumb Nipple
The hand that cradles the face and head doubles as a suction opportunity for the baby. Your thumb becomes a pretty damn “handy” nipple! Just make sure you keep those nails trimmed and smooth, and obviously wash your hands before trying it. No need to give baby an unintentional first taste of wing sauce left over from lunch.
2. Better Scenery
I’m convinced having things to look at makes babies less pissed off. The Jaguar allows your baby to point outward, instead of inward at a hairy dad bod – making for a more enjoyable ride.
3. Single-Handed Operation
Being able to totally comfort your baby with one hand leaves the other hand free for all kinds of useful things.
One of my favourite uses for my other hand is to pat my daughter on the back for added soothing power. Though removing the other thumb first is a good plan if she’s just eaten (so vomit can get out).
So go ahead – give The Jaguar a try! Leave a comment if it works as well for your little one as it has for mine.
