Nuby Icybite Keys
Advantages: Help ease the pain of teething easy for young children to bite down on
Disadvantages: Tricky to clean
These teething keys were something I bought for my son when teething pains started several months ago.
There are 3 different coloured keys that are filled with a gel like substance. This is non-toxic called "purl ICE" which I assume to be a trade name. The keys are all on a blue and white ring that allows them to be jangled if you are your baby wants too. There is also a small oval section with the Trade name of Nuby on it.
Though the three keys are different colours they all have the same shape and indentations on the gel section. This doesn't appear to cause any frustration for my son as he bites down on them and this allows him to be used to the shape and how to angle them best into his mouth to relieve his discomfort. The tops sections of the keys are all slightly different shapes with some different textures. Whilst this is a nice idea in practice my son actually finds these sections hard to manipulate these into his mouth to bite down on. So for us these textures at 10 months are largely redundant. The ring of the teething set is hard plastic and my son actually at times seems to prefer to chew and bite down on the ring itself and the oval section with the Nuby name on it. I think at times he prefers the hardness of these sections to the soft give of the keys themselves. The keys are a little large and initially when he was younger he found them hard to manipulate but from around 8 months he was more than able to get them into the position he wanted in his mouth.
Keeping these clean at times is a bit tricky due to the rough surfaces of the keys. They need a good wipe if they get anything on them as the surfaces can trap bits of dirt or food stuffs very easily. As they can't go into the dishwasher they have to be cleaned by hand which is a bit irritating.
My son overall seems to like these keys to chew on when he is teething however he prefers at times the ring itself to the keys. Whilst they don't take away the discomfort of him teething they do seem to help ease some of the pain. At £3.75 from Boots they are a good buy.
Summary: A good teething product that is fun to look at and that my son enjoys biting on
