My kids loved these Silicone Teething Mitts
My sons teethed hard! They were all miserable with each tooth, and we searched high and low to find teethers that provided some relief to their poor teething gums.
I was so excited when I found these silicone teething mitts to help massage their sore gums. These teething mitts are made of textured silicone that my kids loved to gnaw on when they were fussy. They have an adjustable strap that kept them secure. Even before my kids could hold a teether, they could self-soothe with this mitt.
This teething mitt also has an adorable crinkle sound that the boys loved. It is subtle, so it didn’t bother me much.
The mitt is made of food-grade silicone with a textured surface to help massage sore teething gums and provide relief to teething symptoms in babies—emerging teeth. The textures may also foster baby development as they discover and explore new senses through touch and taste. They are safe for age three months and older.
Three of my kids didn’t like soothers, and none found their thumbs till after four months. Before then, they loved chewing on these mitts, and because they were connected to their hands, unlike their soothers, they didn’t keep falling out of their mouths. We just strapped this little thing on, and away they went!
When can babies start using a teething mitt?
Babies can use a teething mitt from age three months with supervision.
How can a teething mitt help babies feel better from teething gums?
A teething mitt has a texture that can rub tender gums and provide distraction and relief. Babies like to self-soothe, and a mitt can help them do this even if they cannot yet hold a teething toy or keep a soother in their mouth.
How do I clean a teething mitt?
Follow the manufacturer’s directions, but many can be put in the dishwasher or washing machine. You can clean the silicone with soap and water when soiled.
