So is teething really as bad as everyone says? YES!! Yes it is.
In my experience teething came with lots of drool, red cheeks and the need to bite absolutely everything!! My bub was an early teether (if I remember correctly she was about 3 months old when she started and had 8 teeth by 9 months) and as you may already know by now, I had no idea about teething. I went to the chemist because everyone was talking about bonjella, to speak with the pharmacist who told me that studies had indicated that it actually doesn’t help and that Panadol was better.... greattt I thought, now what?
As I wasn’t too keen to dose bub up on Panadol I turned to google and bought some chew toys for her. First we started out on the teething mitt, let me tell you it was an absolutely great thing! It's perfect because her gripping wasn’t great (if at all) and this mitt was easy for her to move to her mouth!. This mitt got us through some tuff times. I introduced her to the crown teether, it was easy for her to grip, provided different textures and could be frozen to help sooth her gums. She absolutely loved it! And still to this date plays with it and chews it! (she even let me have a crew LOL). She also had the panda wooden teether which provided different textures and also variety. Personally, if I had known that a rattle teether existed I would've had that too. The amount of joy that a rattle can make is amazing! Don't forget to brush your bubs teeth when they come with a soft toothbrush.
As with all baby related issues, they seem to end as quick as they come. Personally, as soon as she cut the tooth (or teeth as sometimes multiple came at the same time), boom, cheeks were no longer red and the excessive drooling stopped. I found it really import to provide bub with silicone products as they are soft, provide different textures and could be frozen, all great ways to help sooth the gums. Don’t forget it is simple to clean by putting it in my favourite appliance, the dishwasher! You can also sterilize them.
When looking for a teether keep these points in mind:
Our products are made with FDA approved food grade silicone, withstanding high heat and freezing temperatures without contaminating your little one! Please read each product page for care instructions.
