The last few days have been sleep deprived and filled with crying. My 8 month old has been teething and just sprouted her first two teeth! She seems happier today, but I now see what we can expect with her other eighteen teeth. Her favorite teether, by far, is her giraffe, Sophie. This toy has long legs that she sticks in her mouth, bites down on, and then pulls out with a satisfying POP! as the tiny, natural rubber hoove passes her gums and new little teeth. She also enjoys trying to place the animal’s entire head in her mouth to chew on its ears and face. It is so funny to see my baby viciously attacking this helpless little toy! However, Sophie still looks like new. With her food grade paint and sturdy construction, I don’t have to worry about any small parts coming off and choking my baby or any harsh chemicals poisoning her. What a great investment this teether has been! Buy yours today!
One other word to the wise: invest in a small supply of Baby Orajel! Yes, it is a medication, but it works wonders on a screaming child when she is in pain and hasn’t taken a nap all day. A small dab goes a long way – both for baby and for you!
