Re: Product Spotlights - Teething Accessories

  • So, teething was hard for us. Some of it is trial and error to see what your child likes. I liked the teething toys you could put in the refrigerator to make cold. Honestly, the best teether was the basic set of teething keys. I also reccomend getting a teething pacifier clip if your child takes a pacifier. We tried the munch mitts which DS had no interest in. Also tried the amber teething necklace. I honestly don't think it was any help. Also, keep tylenol and motrin on hand. I don't necessarily like to have to give my child medicine, but on the hard nights of teething, it was a lifesaver.

  • We also used the teethers that go in the fridge. DS liked his Munch Mitt for a while, but then he got sick of it. The rice rusks were a big hit once he was starting to get food too.

  • Teething bibs with the silicone at the bottom! DD didn't love cold things but always needed to have something in her mouth- and THE DROOL!!

  • DD didn’t like anything cold. Munch mitt worked a bit, she loved the banana toothbrush tether and any basic teething toys. The only thing that really worked on bad nights was Motrin and Camilia drops.
  • I registered for two kinds of teething necklaces- the amber one for baby & a silicone one that mama wears. Anyone ever use either of those for their little one?

    @phinzlabyrinth I used a silicone one some.  It worked well for DS when we were out in public. If you have long hair, I recommend not getting one that has the silicone beads all around, it got stuck in my hair a few times. I think they sell them will just a silicone charm that baby can chew on, too.

  • @doraleigh35 DD2 LOVED that banana toothbrush! I had like 3 of them because she’d always lose them but wanted it constantly 
  • My first two got all their teeth fast, all in including 2 year molars by 18-ish months. DS got all six front top at the same time 😬

    we stuck to Motrin for relief, especially at night. We used the teething biscuits (plum organic I believe) once we introduced solids, infantino teethers and both were paci users. Considering how many came in at once and how fast, they handled teething well. 

    we stay away from creams/gels as well as amber necklaces due to the dangers. Neither show any benefits and the risk of injury/death is scary as hell.
