“ Brand: Nuby / Type: Teething Ring „
This is yet another product that I have encountered in my quest over the years to relieve my children of there discomfort whilst going through the pains of teething.
This design of teether is aimed at babies who teeth early, too early to be able to hold a standard teether so they have taken the design of a standard teether and encorporated it into a dummy style.
This style teether has been on the market for a long time as I used these with my eldest child ten years ago so there are plenty of different types around that all do a very similar job.
These are designed from birth upwards as some babies teeth right from the day they are born, thankfully my youngest was around four months old when the teething began and I know my children were all quite small babies but they really did struggle to fit these in there mouths, so much so that it was actually a perfect fit for them by the time they were twelve months old so I have no idea how you are supposed to use these right from new born unless you give birth to a toddler.
Retailing at around £3 each there are much cheaper teethers on the market too so I wouldnt advise these to everyone and would sudgest buying from a store rather than online so you can see for your self the size and weather it would be suitable for your child as ours was left in a drawer for months before it had any use.
Once ours finally fitted in my daughters mouth though she loved it more so than any other style of teether, may be because she didnt have to hold it to bite down on it like she did with others and was rather a lazy child anyway. It helped just as much as other teethes did with helping her cut her teeth and to relieve the soreness of her gums but could be improved by making them in different sizes to suit smaller babies.
