Fun products we've been trying out for teething
I've been on a hunt for different baby teethers for Calvin and other alternatives to safe toothbrushing options. We still use our Nuby sets for morning and nighttime teeth brushing but I wanted something for him to play with that would massage his swollen gums. I've been trying to be intentional with our daily routines and healthy habits so his normal toothbrush is used in the morning after breakfast and at night before bed. He's 10 months and his 6th tooth just broke through. We use our Lil Squish Jelly Fish and Corn on the Cob multiple times throughout the day.
Lil Squish Jelly fish
This is his new FAVORITE toy! We literally bring it everywhere with us now. He loves that it jingles and is squishy! It's soft, jingles and is a great sensory rattle while being safe for him to chew and play with. I love that there's a little loop at the top so I often put a teething necklace or strap through it and attach it to our stroller so it doesn't fall out of our stroller and get dirty. It's made of 100% silicone so it's easy to disinfect and clean!
He just gets the happiest and so giddy when he see his jelly squish! I absolutely love the different rainbow tentacles too! We sometimes put pom-pom balls in the middle and let him pick them out with his little fingers. This helps promote his fine motor skills!
COrn cob toothbrush
This corn cob toothbrush is so cute! It even has realistic looking kernels and super easy to hold husks. We use this throughout the day and I often put baby safe toothpaste on the tips so he munches and massages his swollen gums.
I really appreciate that the husks are at the perfect height so that he doesn't hurt himself when he chomps away. There's not a chance that he'll shove it too far back and injure his mouth especially if he's crawling around and falls.
Since it is 100% food grade silicone, it's easy to clean and even dishwasher safe. But, we normally wash it off and throw it into our sterilizer.
