When my son was 5 months old he popped his first tooth (2 actually). However, for the month prior to that he began to bite me during breastfeeding. (OUCH!!)
I was directed by my lactation consultant to remove baby from my breast, tell him no biting, and give him another chance. If he continued the behavior I was to remove him completely, and give him something to chew on. This worked well, but eventually as bigger and more painful teeth started to push through, he lost interest in the teether I had for him
Lucky for me, a few months later when Squishy was closer to one, I was able to stumble across a great product called Baby Banana Brushes! I was actually killing two birds with one stone with this simple product. I was encouraging him to brush his teeth, and I was giving him something soft and sturdy to ease the pain of teething!
The original Baby Banana Brush is intended for toddlers at least a year old. It is flexible, bendable and made to withstand the chewing. It is adorable and shaped like a banana! Their is also an infant banana brush that uses the peel to create handles for babies under one year old to grasp and keep from putting too far back in their mouth. Both have small bristles to massage teeth and gums.
Their newest product is the Sharky Brush Teether. It’s shaped like a shark with bristles and nubs to clean baby’s mouth as well as stimulate their teething gums. It’s intended for babies under a year old. The find allow the brush to stand next to the sink. It’s really quite cute! They are all dishwasher safe for cleaning and sanitizing which is pretty neat!
I’m excited to try the Sharky Brush Teether with my second baby. I know it will ease a lot of his pain, and hopefully prevent mine as well!
TWO lucky US readers will each win a Banana Brush & Sharky Brush! Open until 10/20/12.
