5 Alternative Uses For Dummy Clips

If you had said the words “dummy clip” to me before I had Baby I would have stared at you blankly but now I can’t walk across a room without passing at least three of them!

I love dummy clips as they are so handy and not just for preventing Baby’s dummy from disappearing to the same place as all of her left socks. I often find myself using them to clip, tie, and attach things that are way outside of the usual dummy clip remit and although I’ve tried lots of different clips, my favourites are still Baby Wings. You can view my full review of Baby Wings dummy clips here, but as they have just released two cool new designs I’ve decided to share some of my alternative dummy clip uses.

Hanging Around

What baby doesn’t like dangling toys? Younger babies love to watch them, while older babies go wild batting at them. Dummy clips make it easy to suspend any soft toy from the hood of your baby’s pram or stroller.

Never lose a toy again

When I first started using Baby’s stroller I spent all of my time checking and re-checking that she hadn’t lost Mr Hedgehog or Pinky the Unicorn. That was until I realised that I could use a dummy clip to attach them to the pram ensuring that if they fall (are launched) out of the pram, they dangle safely just above the ground.

No more crumbs

I nearly always have 2 or 3 dummy clips in Baby’s changing bag but I’m always forgetting to pack sandwich clips to close all of the half eaten packets of crisps and crumbly biscuits. Not to worry, the clip on the end of a dummy clip does the job just fine and one clip can easily close 3 or 4 packets. Why Baby is incapable of finishing a packet of anything is beyond me!


How’s it hanging

Dummy clips are great if you need to hang something on a hook that just doesn’t want to be hung. Baby towels, muslins, jackets that don’t have loops… just clip the dummy clip onto them and throw the loop over the hook. No more jackets or soggy towels falling on the floor.

Baby it’s cold outside

I often keep a blanket in Baby’s changing bag just in case. But no matter how chilly it gets, baby seems to be obsessed with kicking her blanket off. Dummy clips to the rescue again! Simply loop the dummy clip over the pram harness on either side of Baby, fold the blanket so it will sit on her lap without dragging on the floor and clip it into place with the dummy clips. Baby remains warm despite herself.
