Nuby gave me an adorable Teether Tugz in exchange for my review.
Two month ago, I was wondering why babies needed bibs. Today, I change Poppyseed’s bib almost every 3 hours because it’s soaked with saliva. Poppyseed has been drooling up a storm lately, somehow the floodgates have opened and the ocean waves have come crashing in. I find myself tied to the bathroom sink constantly washing piles of bibs just to keep up with his drools. Five bibs, which I once thought was too many to own, have now become a scarce resource. For the life of me, I couldn’t understand what’s happening, until my sister-in-law, told me Poppyseed has started teething! You can only imagine how my jaws dropped when I listened in disbelief. I barely figured out the very basics of parenting, how could Poppyseed be ALREADY teething?? I’ve been winging it every day just to survive!
After the initial shock and denial is over, and the late night sessions of Googling.. and more Googling, turns out babies can start teething as early as 3 months and some even as early as newborns. Now that probably explains why Poppyseed has been sucking on his fist ferociously even after feedings. At one point I was worried how I was gonna keep up with his hungry belly! Not to mention, Poppyseed had been so feisty recently that I must confess that I secretly wondered if he was a devil child at times! Now how can I ever blame this poor thing who is already teething at 3 1/2 months old? Ready or not, my baby is growing up and all ready for a Nuby’s Teether Tugz toy!
Nuby’s Teether Tugz toys are adorable little characters that have long wings or ears (depending on the character) with tips made of BPA free rubber to soothe your baby’s gums. There are three characters to choose from: Elephant, butterfly, and rabbit. Made for ages 0 and up, it is tiny, cuddly, and lightweight enough for your baby to hold on both ends. It also makes a gentle rattle sound when shaken. The patterns on each of the three characters are also very colorful to enhance your baby’s visual skills.
Poppyseed was mesmerized by the colors and rattle sounds of the Teether Tugz toy. He does enjoy biting on the rubber ends as well. The Teether Tugz overall is nicely designed as it is adorable and colorful. However, I do suggest that the fabric used for the wings or ears of the Teether Tugz characters be changed to a waterproof fabric so that it can be easily washed and instantly dried. Currently it is made of regular fabric on one side and soft felt-like fabric on the other, which takes a longer time to dry from wash or drool.
So go get a Teether Tugz for your little one today. It retails for $6.99 and can be purchased through www.BuyBabyDirect.com. Refer to Nuby’s website www.nuby.com for details.
I was not in any way compensated for this review. All words are of my honest opinion.
