A few months ago the creative minds behind a product called The Teething Egg sent me thie product so I could give my honest review. Prior to speaking with them after running across thier instagram account, I had never heard of this product. Immediately I was intrigued and wondered how it would work for my little teething sweetheart. As I anticipated the arrival (which was a quick one, shipping was speedy) I had concerns if my little one would enjoy it, he is a binky boy and loves his wubbanubs. However, I am happy to report it was a hit!
When it arrived in the mail I opened it, read over the sheet and back of the box and hooked it on his shirt. At first glance, I thought it may be heavy on his shirt but I found that if you clip higher on the shirt that isn’t an issue. He immediately grabbed it and put it in his mouth. There is no exaggeration when I say that he would not put it down. He chewed on it for hours before looking for his binky. The shape of the egg is perfect for tiny hands and it fit in his perfectly. When he received it, my son was around 11 months ago and had 6 teeth at the time (and still does!). He hasn’t gotten any teeth since his sixth one came in months ago, so as you can imagine teething has been a nightmare. Over the last week few weeks, i have been suspecting a tooth is near as he has used his egg for than ever. Although no more have popped through yet, I can confidently say that the teething egg has helped tremendously.
So what’s so special about this egg? Here are some fun facts about it.
-It’s small enough for your baby to hold with one hand and encourages fine motor development and sensory play.
– Has a smooth surface which allows it to glide over the baby’s gums with ease.
– Mom invented and made in the USA
– Curved shape aids in soothing sore gums
– Great replacement for a pacifier
– can be placed in the fridge for cooling (essentially replacing teething rings as well!)
– Can be used as a modulated soother for special needs children
-awesome plastic latch that is easy for an adult to open to close
– Non toxic, BRA Free, Phthalate Free, Latex Free, PVC Free and made with FDA approved materials
My son has used this product nearly every day since we have received it in some way. Not only is it great for all the ways previously list it’s almost great for me to clip onto my shirt while he is nursing and beleive me when I say, my breasts definitely appreciate it as he’s a pincher! Another great use is in my tula. I like to clip it on to the slack of the PFA and it serves as a great toy.
I am super impressed with this product. I can only hope that this amazing product will be in the homes of every family with little ones of teething age as it’s amazing. Whether it’s used for teething, in place of pacifier or a toy this product is truely a hit. Check out the teething egg on Facebook and instagram as well as website!
