8 teeth and counting!
We noticed today that Trin's 8th tooth has come through. Thankfully she is not mega-troubled by teething at the moment. She has had the odd grumpy day where nothing else was wrong and as it is not like her to be grumpy, we figured out it was probably the teething pain that was bothering her.
We had already been sent some lovely teething toys from Nuby previously, and this month, we were sent a Nuby Natural Touch Ice gel CoolBite teether to try out.
This teether is made up of two teething keys filled with PurICE gel (which is indended to stay colder for longer). These are securely attached together with a pretty ribbon. Although the ribbon looks tied on, it is actually stitched too so it shouldn't come undone.
The pretty pink and purple colour of the 'keys' matches many of Trin's pink and purple clothes. The teether is also available in a blue / green colour combination.
The teether is easy for little hands to hold, small enough to take out and about with you and has the advantage of having the cooling effect on those sore teeth and gums over non-gel style teethers.
Trin is just getting into the phase of deliberately dropping toys and so the downside was that she happily keeps repeatedly dropping the teether onto the floor (as she seems to be doing with all her toys at the moment!) and enjoys watching the rest of us keep picking things up for her - only to be dropped again.
So after a while, I would just have to pop the teether by the sink to be washed again. The packaging does give a useful suggestion to keep a spare teether in the fridge so that you always have one cooling and ready for use, so perhaps we will need to do that.
The teether is designed to be suitable for children aged 3 months and over. It is only suitable for cooling in the FRIDGE (not the freezer), so that is important to remember because the term 'purICE' gel and the image on the packaging showing a drawing of ice over the word 'CoolBite' may otherwise cause confusion.
Overall this teether has been a useful addition in the battle against teething pain!
