“ Brand: The First Years / Health Aid: Teething Rings & Gels „
I bought this teething ring for my grandson when he was born and it is so very cute. It is slightly different to the picture as it has farm animals on the rings in pastel colours rather than these brighter animals. It is made up of about 8 water-filled circles which are all connected together to form a big ring. If you squeeze one part the water will flow through into another, this makes it squashy beneath teeth and also makes it not pop if it gets too much pressure applied to one point. The little pictures on the circles are really cute and bright so attract babies to look at them. When my grandson first had this he used to gaze at the pictures for ages and turn the ring round to look at all the other ones too. It is not a hard teething ring, it is really quite soft to chew which makes it different to the other teethers that I have for them, the other ones tend to be more firm with only a little give on them but this one is much more squashy which makes it softer on gums. My grandson chews on this quite a bit and it helps to give him relief. Because it's filled with water I sometimes put it in the fridge too to help to cool it down which also helps to provide relief to the babies when they are teething. Some people put them in the freezer too and again i guess this is why the water is not too full so that it has got the room to expand. It is a nice, light ring to hold and it isn't anything fancy it doesn't make any noises or do anything other than just provide something for a little hand to hold and little gums to chew on and little eyes to study. I really like this and my grandson enjoys holding it and chewing on it. It's only light so it is easy enough for him to grasp. The only negative is that the sides of the little circles are slightly sharp, this is where the plastic meets and some parts are not smooth along the join but slightly overlapping which makes a slightly sharp ridge. Aside from this I really cannot fault this lovely teether.
While my daughter was going through her first stages of teething I ended up getting her quite a few teethers to try and help her through the pain. Many of them were useless but I found this cool ring teether to be one of the best. It only cost me 3 euro so was a bargain. Its a ring of soft gel like rubber which has a fluid inside so when they baby bites then they get a squishy feeling. I admit to trying this myself and can see how this would help them feel better. It can be easily placed on a baby hand like a bracelet when they are in a buggy so they can constantly chomp on it. It has lovely cute pictures around the ring itself of animals like dolphins and birds and my daughter could stare at these for hours while she chomped away. I also put it into the fridge every now and again as I thought this would help soothe her even more and it certainly did. I thought it would be too much to put it in the freezer as I did not want her tongue sticking to it! It seemed to be just perfect being in the fridge a few hours. I wish I had bought two so I didnt have to be waiting for it to be cool to give it to her. I found I used this teether more than any of the rest of teether I had bought her. Its so simple compared to others I bought and it definitely is the most effective. It lasted her months and is still in good shape now even though she no longer needs to use it. I would highly recommend this as a perfect teether for gentle baby gums.
Another teether which we ended up with! Plus there are ones we had which aren't even on DooYoo! This First Years Cool Ring Teether was purchased for us as part of a gift given to use by my husband's firm. It is unusual looking in that it looks like a little bracelet and it has soft gel water filled "beads" all the way around for your teething baby to chew on. Our one was the same as the one in the picture, brightly coloured with little animals on like a duck and a whale. Though I did find out that there was a Winnie the Pooh option! The little gel like pads are all joined up to make a bracelet shape and each piece is filled with water, is clear in colour with a little picture on top. When you press down on one of the gel pads, the animal moves around inside. As with all water filled teethers, this teether goes straight in the fridge to chill it so that it will soothe sore and painful gums. I was surprised at how cold this particular teether was when it did come out of the fridge. It was really chilled and I have never experienced a teether so cold before. My daughter was visibly impressed with this teether as it went straight to her mouth with no prompting and she was biting happily away on it and it became one of very few that actually got used by her. The teether is nicely made though I did find myself worrying about the soft vinyl material breaking whilst she was using it but it never did. When she was finished using it as a teether she started using it as a bracelet which was very cute! The teether is a nice size and very easy to hold and manage. A really good teether and very impressive.
My little one is in the process of teething and he can't have enough of anything to grab on and swish it in his mouth. It's very interesting to see his curious eyes wander around to look for new things to chew at. I have a loadful of teethers set out for him and he has been gifted a sackfull more but everytime I spread them around him, he rejects them. So I was compelled to buy new ones. This teether is colorful and the ring has 8 different pieces that your baby can alternatively chew at. It's cooling and satisfying. The teether has cool water filled cells and each cell has dancing animals that attract the attention of your baby everytime he chews the teether. You baby will forget teething pain while he has this in his mouth for this is a perfect teether for distraction. It's big enough to keep a baby busy for minutes together giving you enough time to look for another way to amuse him. First years has done a very good job once again.
When your child is teething and you feel that nothing can pacify your drooling red cheeked little cherub, as you watch helplessly as he/she drools endlessly gumming to death anything that comes within an inch of mouth distance. You will thank the Lord that you had this simple little teething ring! I highly reccomend you have at least 2, they are cheap enough and useful enough to justify it. One can be cooling/sterilising while the other is being chewed into oblivion! The look of pure satisifaction on your childs face when presented with this cold squishy easy to handle and manouvre teether, is an absolute delight. I can't reccomend this highly enough!!
Innovative design. Chillable water-filled cells soothe sore gums. Dancing animals come to life when squeezed for added distraction!
