We’ve approached that time when our babe seeks to gnaw on anything — yup TEETHING. I had been scrolling through countless teethers and reading and then I came across the Munch Mitt (Baby Teething Mitten), I thought what a great idea. How could I pass up an item that’s marketed as…”the ‘handy’ undroppable, unstoppable teething mit.”
This product is made with food grade silicone, BPA and Phthalate free, it’s convenient, easy to clean and gives little ones who may not have the dexterity to hold on to teethers for an extended period of time the ease of having a teether at their fingertips…oh and did I mention hands-free?! Hands-free is the way to be!
Order was placed, 2-days later it arrived and I took it for a dip in boiling water for several minutes, set it aside to dry. Once dry I put it into the ‘handy’ travel bag provided and into the diaper bag it went. When I went to use it I just slipped our little guy’s hand into the mitt and fastened it closed not too tight but also not to the point he can fling it across the room. And being as though he’s in the “everything in my mouth phase”–no instruction or demonstration necessary– it was a matter of seconds before the mitt found it’s way into the slobber baby’s mouth as he gnawed it quietly – kept him busy for quite some time.
I’ll leave you with this if you are looking for a product that is safe and easy to use, protects baby’s hand from excessive chewing and drool, provides soothing teething relief all the while allowing you to be hands-free and not having to keep chasing down and washing off teethers than search no further this is the product for you and your baby!
The recommended age is for babies 3 months to 1 year (though the website suggests wear from 3mos-8mos). Cost is $17.99+shipping on the Munch Mitt website but it’s also for sale in local stores like Learning Express or my go-to Amazon (as a Prime member I get free two-day shipping) and the Mitt was $18.88 but is now showing $16.99.
This “handy” teether is worth every penny, though I will say I wouldn’t pay over $20 for it, while it’s a great product I am a frugal mama and these diapers cost. But for the cost you get a great product, soothing relief for baby and you are supporting a fellow mom[parent] who has a helpful invention.
¤¤it’s only been a week of use and we are enjoying it but I will update this post over time to see how this teether holds up
