Not a Teether. Not Recommended for Children Under 7 Months.
on January 15, 2015
These get only 1 star because of the complete lack of product info given by the company on the Amazon page. Although the description about being "easy for little fingers to grasp and hold" leads one to believe these are baby teethers, they are not. If you order them, you will see on the insert in the package that these are a "safe and effective tool for practicing biting and chewing skills" and that they "are not recommended for use with children under 7 months of age." Most of the focus seems to be on jaw rehabilitation (see the pic of the insert for additional info); they are a speech pathology aid.
If you're looking for a tool that will help to "develop oral and motor skills and up/down jaw motion for feeding, and to rehabilitate the jaw after surgery, trauma or stroke", these may well suit your needs. If you are looking to give relief to a teething baby, I recommend that you go elsewhere. They could possibly be used as a teether for an older baby, but they are not designed for it and would need close adult supervision to ensure that baby does not gag or choke.
A few facts about the product:
1. Oral motor device to develop biting and chewing skills (not for teething relief)
2. Not recommended for children under 7 months old
3. Made in the USA
4. Cannot be boiled or microwaved to clean - warm soapy water only
5. Do not contain latex, lead, BPA, PVC or phthalates
If you're looking for a teether to access molars, I recommend trying Como Tomo.
