Not quite what I expected
on February 19, 2013
I bought this teether because our baby seems to prefer the silicone ones, however, he really did not take to this one as much as say the baby banana, or the razberry teethers. First off, the size was what I was expecting, though, it was a bit softer, um, a bit floppier than I was expecting from the pictures. I guess I was expecting something more solid along the line of the baby banana. Though, in retrospect, given the size, and the thinness of the teether, I should have expected it to be a little floppy - oh yes, it's not as thick as the picture might have you believe. Admittedly, perhaps when I read "baby finger-sized" I pictured my baby's finger sized, and he's a chubbster with really pudgy hands and fingers, so, my mistake. Also, the colour of the teether is more of a softer blue (which I kinda prefer) rather than the bright blue depicted. The main reason I don't like this teether is the fact that my baby really did not like it. He seems to like using it as a (dull) musical instrument banging on the table rather than to chew on. He will occasionally chew on the ring, but then, he'll snap it and hit himself on the rebound. Comical for us parents, sure, but does not seem to fulfill the role of teether. We're not quite sure what's confusing him, but maybe the fingers need to be a bit longer (as they are, they're a bit short and tighly clustered for him to fit any one into his mouth at one time, but the cluster itself is too big). I guess each baby will react to it differently, but for ours, this one was a dud.
