Every baby is different and especially being a Mummy of 2, I am finding this so true the older JJ gets. He has been teething for a few months now and while Nee never had problems with this it seems to be affecting JJ a lot more.
All fingers in mouth, dribble down chin and a nappy full of mess it was easy to see that he wasn’t copy well and especially at night.
I came across gummeeteething on Instagram and I instantly loved their product called Gummee Glove that we were kindly gifted to try out. Gummee Glove is a teething mitten designed to fit on a babies hand for ages 3m+ which helps to provide relief on their gums by the side teethers being well positioned so that when the baby brings their hand to mouth they can easily chew on the teether.
We chose the turquoise Gummee Glove (3-6 months) for stage 2 teething which comes with the detachable heart shaped teether and free laundry/travel drawstring pouch. This makes it easy to wash and keep the teether clean after baby’s use.
Once we ordered the Gummee Glove it arrived very quickly with next day delivery, I was really excited for JJ to try it as he’d had a rough few days of teething where we had needed to administer Calpol. As soon as I put the glove on JJ’s hand he knew exactly what to do with it and brought the glove to his mouth in a sideward position to allow the teether to fit in his mouth. The glove fit perfectly on his hand by the adjustable Velcro strap which makes it so useful for babies that are too young to grip onto the normal teethers.
JJ was so happy right away on the relief the teether brought him and I was especially happy as prior he had been sucking and chewing on his fingers which I were afraid would get sore as he suffers with sensitive and eczema prone skin.
We love our Gummee Glove and this is such an innovative idea that we will be using the other products when he moves up in stages.
Gummee Glove Features
The adjustable hook and loop design means that once the mitten is fitted onto baby’s hand there is no fear of it falling off to the ground whilst you are out and about. A teether that has a perfect fit!
There is a pocket at the top of the Gummee Glove which is for the heart shaped detachable teething ring with the popper that holds the teething ring securely in place. This is good once the baby has been introduced to the glove and is comfortable with its use, it can either be used with the glove or separately as baby learns how to hold onto a teether.
Every Gummee Glove comes with a free, high quality, food grade silicone, BPA & Phthalate free detachable heart shaped teething ring that can be used once baby has outgrown the Gummee Glove and can be separately used with added relief by popping it in the refrigerator for half an hour to provide instant cooling relief on hot and itchy gums.
The Side Teethers
The side teethers are perfectly designed to fit into tiny mouths so that when baby puts hand to mouth the teether is right there where it needs to be. These can also be used as gel applicators by just applying some gel to the side of the teethers. The heart shaped teether can be washed in soapy water or sterilised using any of the usual methods.
The Gummee Glove is made with 100% cotton which makes it really absorbent and breathable. This is particularly important as it prevents baby from getting rashes as the glove absorbs all the drool while baby stays comfortable and dry!
Every Gummee Glove comes with a free laundry pouch which makes it easy to wash after baby’s use. Simply pop the glove into the drawstring bag, tightly pull the cord and loosely tie the string, then wash with similar coloured items.
The heart shaped teether can be washed in soapy water or sterilised using any of the usual methods.
Even though we were gifted the Gummee Glove all opinions are my own and this has been a great help with JJ’s teething. Thank you GummeeTeething for sending us this gift!
