2.0 out of 5 stars regular teether, November 2, 2010
This review is from: Baby Banana Bendable Training Toothbrush, Infant (Baby Product)
It is silicone teether that is shaped as a toothbrush. My baby 1 year old and had it for few months. She is chewing on handles, toothbrush part and the other side. It is not her favorite teether, but she uses it occasionally. I gave it 3 stars because the product is misrepresented. It does not develop good hygiene, and it is not training toothbrush. Infants will not learn to manipulate it in their mouth, they will chew on it. Nor does it massage gums any better than anything else babies put in their mouth. It is regular teether, just overpriced. Whoever buys it still needs to wipe their baby teeth after meals and brush it before bedtime with finger toothbrush. The teether does nothing to clean baby teeth or to train the baby in tooth brushing.

Update: When baby began using teether heavily, she started biting off tether bristles one by one. After she bit off half of them, I cut the rest, and baby stopped using the teether shortly after that.

The brush is designed with the same bristles that finger toothbrushes have, and has been tested to be as effective with brushing as a finger toothbrush. Learning to put the brush inside the mouth is the first step to developing good oral hygiene habits. If your child is biting the bristles off, it is time for them to graduate to a traditional nylon bristle toothbrush, which should be used only for brushing and not for teething. The reason this brush is pricey is because it is made from the highest quality medical grade silicone, which is not cheap but is safe for your baby to put into his or her mouth, and that is what is most important.

I don't know maybe I am wrong - but isn't it the parents job to train their child to brush their teeth - not a product on the market. You train them by giving it to them in the bathroom at teeth brushing time - you don't give it to them to just chew on.

That's right. And a child doesn't have the manual dexterity to brush on their own until they can write cursive
