Bickiepegs Teething Biscuits
Advantages: Soothing for my Son & They last a Long time before they break up
Disadvantages: Could be a Potential Choking hazard
My son is now 8 months old and already has 2 teeth which caused him a lot of pain when they were coming through and we did struggle to really find anything for him that was particularly soothing. Several relatives suggested that we try Bickiepegs Teething Biscuits but I couldn't find any in the Supermarkets and shops whatsoever, I assumed they had stopped making them.
But I was on the Kiddicare website last month browsing through items in their sale when I spotted a packet of Bickiepegs, finally. I bought a box of 9 which cost £1.72 (Sale Price) and I was optimistic about their effects since I'd heard such great things about them. Only a week or so after we bought the Bickiepegs, my son started getting another couple of teeth and I was crying and very irritated, so it was the perfect time to try out these Teething biscuits.
The biscuits are quite hard and don't break up easily, so your baby can chew on them for quite a while before they will start to disintegrate. My son seemed to be really comforted and a lot more content when he was sitting chewing on the biscuit. The biscuits are "Peg" shaped, just like a washing peg with a small hole in the top. There are some threads in the packet of biscuits which you are supposed to attach through these holes and tie them in a loop and then the instructions say to "attach to your babys clothing", but where? I can't think of any place I could attach the string to on my son, the only place I could think of was his dummy clip but when I did that the biscuit was completely out of reach for him. The threads are obviously to make the biscuits safer for your baby to prevent choking etc. but with nowhere to attach it to (and the fact it is actually really difficult to put the threads through the hole in the biscuit) I found I couldn't make use of them and instead I have to stay with my son at all times when he has one of these biscuits. They could be really dangerous if they slip down your baby's throat!
The Bickiepegs box states that they have been helping parents since 1925 and that they have been used in Royal Nurseries, so they have obviously been well used in the past. If anyone knows of a good place to attach the Bickiepeg to and still have it in easy reach of my baby please let me know! I do like to hold the biscuit in my baby's mouth myself but he usually grabs it off me and holds it while chewing onto it himself, I'd be much more relaxed if I knew the biscuit thread was attached to him somewhere!
The ingredients of the biscuits are said to be specially designed and shaped to exercise the jaws with the hardness to satisfy the bite which emerging teeth are seeking. It also says Doctors, Health Visitors & Dentists recommend them. More specifically, they contain Wheat Flour, Wheatgerm and Water and are suitable for babies over 6 Months and they contain no added Sugar and Salt.
They are coming in really handy at the minute for my little boy it's just a shame I don't feel more relaxed when he has them. Any parent who is or has previously used Bickiepegs if you have any tips for me then please let me know!
