My son got his bottom teeth first, then his fangs. He looked like a little Jack-o-lantern. His front teeth were nowhere in sight. Pretty cute.
When his gums started to puff up in front, I decided to try out some Droolery. My neighbor recommended it to me. Droolery is a silicone necklace worn by the mom and chewed on by the teething baby. I was time to try it because that week, my son broke two of my necklaces. The Droolery necklace has a break-away clasp for safety, but it is nice because my son can pull on it and I don’t have to worry about it breaking or beads falling off and becoming choke-able. I was provided with a necklace in exchange for an honest review. I knew it was going to be a hit when I opened my package because I had to fight of his grabby hands to get it around my neck. As soon as I let him touch it, it went straight to his mouth. Just like everything else.
There are a few reasons why I like it:
I like that it is dishwasher safe, so after a day of drooling, I can just toss it in with dinners dishes.
I like that the beads are semi-soft. I imagine that is a lot more comfortable to chew on with tender gums.
I like that is a great distraction when he starts to get a little fussy. He likes to play with it, shake it in the air and of course, chew on it.
I like that it is cute. I got a compliment on it from a lady in the store that didn’t even know its “real purpose” was for teething babies.
I will definitely be keeping this around for my next baby. If you know a little baby around teething age, this is a great gift.
