I got my hands on Onya Baby’s Outback carrier a few months ago. Now I finally get to write about it. I will tell you upfront, this is like no carrier you’ve ever seen. It’s a hiking carrier, but this is not your typical hiking carrier–heavier than the kid herself, with metal poles and a [...]
Bug has been a drooly baby from the get-go. Two little nubs on his bottom gums lead me to believe he’d have teeth by two months. But no teeth. Just drool, complaints and a hot, red cheek. He had also been waking a little more over the last week.
Then this morning, as I tipped him into his car seat, not only did I see those two bottom nubs more inflamed than ever, but he has cut his top four teeth. What kid cuts four teeth over night? Poor little Bug. I’m blown away by how he’s made it through this. He’s been yelling a lot, loudly, as though he’s having some kind of discomfort, but he rarely ever cries. For a baby cutting four- six teeth that’s pretty great, right? I’ve given him Camilia a couple of times in the last week, but things never seemed so bad as to warrant hard drugs. We learned our lesson with Babe! We put a Hazlewood teething necklace on him but it kept getting lodged and lost in his neck fat.
One of the best ways we found to help his teething pain was to make sure he was chewing on something. He seemed to favour metal spoons until he got his new favourite thing ever: his Baby Banana Brush! We don’t go anywhere without it and panic ensues in the house when we’ve lost it. Babe has been known to scurry around calling out, “Banana… banana…” and then asking me to rinse it so she can give it to her bro.
I heard of the Baby Banana Brush on a Facebook group for moms who live in my area. I immediately checked out the site because her endorsement was so passionate. And what sounds cuter than a Banana-shaped teether for babies? The photos confirmed it was as cute as it sounded. The nice people at Live Right sent me one and now I, too, can give a passionate endorsement!
The medical grade silicone teether comes with two handles (made of the “peel” of the banana) that are perfect for itty bitty hands. You can also use it to loop onto a holder for a soother or a ring to attach to your diaper bag or your baby carrier. The silicone bristles massage the baby’s sore gums as he chomps away. It can be rinsed under the tap or thrown in the dishwasher. It’s also safe for the freezer. And… It’s non-toxic.
