Has anyone else found that their two babies have teethed in completely different ways? When Ruby was a baby, there were no signs that she was teething at all. Her teeth would just appear and there were no flushed cheeks, no sore bottom, no sleepless nights, no gnawing on her cot, just nothing and then I’d notice a new pearly toothy-peg from time to time.
But Hugo is completely different and he suffers really badly when he’s teething. Maybe it’s a boy thing? I don’t know.
It was superb timing when ‘Gummee’ contacted me and asked if I’d like to review their Gummee Glove Plus, which is specially designed for the bigger, (but still tiny) hands of children above 6 months.
Hugo seems to love his Gummee Glove Plus. The Velcro strap allows the glove to remain comfortably on his hand. I’ve found this is often the trouble with teething aids; they’re always dropped on the floor and I’ve ended up buying multiple teethers so I can rotate them while I’m sterilising ones that live on the floor for 99% of the time.
The glove itself can be machine-washed on a gentle cycle in its laundry pouch and is 100% cotton. There are two silicone teethers on either side of the glove, which Hugo also likes to use as an extra grip when he’s really munching. And there’s an interactive crinkle patch to stimulate him further as he adjusts his grip.
On the top of the Gummee Glove is a heart-shaped silicone teething ring, which is detachable, so you can sterilise it and you can even refrigerate it to cool sore gums.
I’d be happy to recommend the Gummee Glove Plus to anyone with a baby over 6 months and they have other products for younger babies too. You can find them here.
