Teething

Welcome to the start of a new series about my fav products...most of which will probably be for babies, sorry non-parents. But the next time you're invited to a baby shower, you'll be all set for gift ideas! Or vegan foods, sorry carnivores. But maybe one of these delicious discoveries might inspire you to start going meat free on Mondays. Either way, it's my blog so I get to do what I want to. So there. Wait, don't go. I'll try to write things you think are interesting too. I didn't mean that thing about it being my blog. Honest. Dooooooonnnn'tttt goooooo.

After years in retail, my least favorite thing to do is shop. Good for the pocket book, bad for the style. But I always manage to find time to shop for Ian. So, without further ado, here's my latest find!


First let me begin by saying that babies should be born with a full set of teeth. Teething is a mean thing to do to a baby. Our little guy got his first two teeth in rapid succession at 4 1/2 months. Now we see another pearl appearing where his upper incisor will be. Clearly Ian has not read the rules on when to get teeth (6-7 months) and which order they are to appear (bottom middle two followed by upper middle two THEN incisors). After several failed attempts, I have been determined to find a great teething toy for our cranky drool machine. This vibrating massaging steering wheel from Je Je seems to be just what the doctor ordered. Though it does up the drool factor from stream to puddle status, it's easy for him to hold and seems to make his gums feel better. Hooray!

My next mission will be to find absorbent bibs that have waterproof backs. It's always annoyed me that while collecting the puddles of drool, bibs also soak the shirt underneath. If I wanted a wet shirt, I wouldn't have put on the bib. Duh...

One of my mom friends in Denver loved this thing! (Well, she loved it because her son loved it...) I asked where she got it and it was a gift, so she had no idea. I hadn't seen it since then, until now.

The same friend was also a fan of the razbaby pacifier (again, because her son was a fan). http://www.lullabylane.com/shopping/search/searchresultsmain.jsp?fresh=1&searchType=advanced&iMainCat=0&iSubCat=0&attribute14=0&attribute15=0&attribute16=0&RS=1&keyword=BERRY+SILICONE+TEETHER

E still has only two teeth, at 13mos. One day, she's going to be able to chew, then it's watch out world!

Wish I could edit comments. The razbaby product looks like a pacifier but apparently is technically a teether. And it's silicone, not "bad plastic" to boot. :)

Sounds like a great product! I too had early teethers! Joshua had 12 by his first birthday and Miriam had 10 by her first birthday! Joshua had 6 by the time he was 6 months old! I really could have used this with him because he was super cranky!

I love the "favorite things" concept, even though I'm a pre-mommy I am taking notes! And even though I'm back on the meat-wagon, I still hold to a primarily vegetarian diet, so bring on the 'favorites' there! (I can't go vegan...I love cheese too much).
