MAM Oral Care Rabbit, Start Pacifiers and Anti-Colic Bottles
Win 2014 National Parenting Publications Awards
White Plains, New York, June 2014 – MAM products including the MAM Oral Care Rabbit, MAM Start Pacifiers and MAM Anti-Colic bottleshave been named 2014 National Parenting Publications Award (NAPPA) winners. The Oral Care Rabbit and Start Pacifiers are Gold winners in the Gadgets ‘n’ Gear category and MAM’s Anti-Colic Bottle has been named a Silver winner in the same category.
Each year, NAPPA’s independent panel of expert judges and parents stringently test and evaluate hundreds of submissions and choose only the best of the best. Products are judged on innovation, safety, quality, educational value and the degree to which they assist busy parents and families. This year, 50 products were selected to receive the coveted Gold Award, while 129 others were designated as Silver or Honors winners.
“With so many products on the market, it’s sometimes hard for moms and dads to find time to separate the truly great from the rest of the pack,” says Julie Kertes, NAPPA General Manager. “Our testers save them that legwork by carefully evaluating hundreds of products and awarding only the best of the best.”
“MAM is thrilled to have our products recognized with 2014 NAPPA Awards, joining an exclusive list of stand-out products that make parenting easier,” said Isaac Cohen, Vice President of Marketing at MAM USA. “For over 35 years we’ve been obsessed with making products that are smart and simple to use. Our innovative pacifiers, cups, bottles and teethers provide solutions for parents and ensure optimal oral development for infants.”
MAM Oral Care Rabbit (0+ months)
Designed to maintain baby’s oral hygiene before teeth arrive, the MAM Oral Care Rabbit gently removes plaque and bacteria from baby’s mouth. Mom’s fingers tuck into the rabbit’s super soft “ears” like a glove, allowing her to gently massage and clean baby’s gums. Regular use of the MAM Oral Care Rabbit also helps prepare baby for a regular tooth brushing routine at an early age. Suggested retail price: $5.99.
MAM Start Pacifiers with their extra small and lightweight design are a perfect choice for newborn babies up to age two months. Developed in cooperation with the International Children Medical Research Society, MAM Start Pacifiers are recommended most by dentists and Orthodontists. The pacifiers feature MAM’s Ultra Soft Silicone Nipple which stays comfortably in baby’s mouth due to its anti-slip texture and the symmetrical nipple is ideal too for baby’s jaw development. The textured surface and multiple small openings on the pacifier shield Allow air to circulate and for baby’s skin to breathe. In addition to MAM’s patented anti-slip Silk Teat™ Silicone nipple, MAM Start Pacifiers also are available in a Natural Latex nipple option. Like all MAM products, MAM Start pacifiers are BPA-free, PVC-free, lead-free and CPSIA-Compliant. Recommended retail $7.49 for a pack of two.
MAM Anti-Colic Bottles
Ideal for newborns, the innovative MAM Anti-Colic Bottle helps reduce the stress associated with newborn feedings. Patented ventilation holes in the bottle’s base regulate the pressure balance of baby’s milk, allowing it to flow evenly without bubbles or air pockets for reduced gas and colic symptoms.
The bottle’s savvy design makes it a pleasure to use; wide openings at both ends allow for effortless filling and cleaning, and an innovative self-sterilizing feature lets busy parents sterilize an empty bottle in the microwave with a few simple steps. Available in a 5 ounce or 9 ounce size; recommended for newborns and up. Suggested retail price: $6.99 each and $13.49 for two.
