Nuby Bug a Loop Teething RIng
Advantages: Works well
Disadvantages: the wings on the bugs
The teether is shaped in a loop with bright beads all the way around it and small bees and lady birds to separate different beads of this teether. Each of the beads have a rubber covering on them and different textures to stimulate baby some have small bumps others have ridges on them.
Some of the bugs have wings on them which create soft rounded edges that can reach to awkward parts of little ones mouth.
It is a good size so young babies can hold it very easily but at the same time not too big so that it cannot fit in the mouth. It bends and moves around and does what the child wants very easily and as it is very light it is great for little hands.
The bright colours hold little ones attention as do the different textures so if they are using it to play with or to soothe there pains from teething there is variety for little one which I think is what helped my little boy stay interested in it.
As the beads are plastic but then have a softer rubber coating this means they provide the support needed to the gums while a new tooth is coming through but at the same time they are not harsh on little ones mouth so provide soothing in comfort.
What is great about this teether is unlike others we have tried this can actually reach little ones teeth and not just the front ones which is a great deal more than we have found in any other teether. As each bead is small and has different textures when it is twisted and turned it can reach most of little ones mouth and the bead can be turned and twisted to provide different feel.
Each and every piece of this teether twists and turns around to keep little one amused but also to make it flexible so while in little ones mouth it can help ease their pain so it is multi functional. This means it can be carried around as a toy and as there are so many different parts to explore it is a small yet effective toy and has lots for little hands to do when it is not being used as a teether.
My only downside is although we have never had a problem with the wings of the bugs these have no rubber covering on them and so are just hard plastic which worried me that it could cut or hurt little ones mouth. My son thought different and loved to bite on them but I found myself checking each time he used it that it was not hurting his gums.
As a teether this works well can reach inside babies mouth easily and the different textures helps provide comfort to babies. As a toy again the different textures help keep little one interested and as each bead and bug twist and turn there is lots for little one to explore.
It is recommended from 3 months plus which is about the right age range for this and can last all the way up to when your child stops teething. We have had it 12 months now and it has proved to be durable and effective and I will purchase one again for my baby expected in June.
Summary: A great product that actually aids teething
