Teething 15 month old loves this
My 15 month old is constantly looking for items shaped like a pen to chew on. Most of these objects are unsafe for a toddler to play with, so I was on a quest to find something safer. This fit the bill perfectly. She immediately took to this teether and happily gnaws away at the handle and longer tube part. Overall, it is kind of long for a toddler and the tube part is thicker in circumference than a standard pen (smaller than a crayola maker), so in some ways it seems to be designed for older children with oral stimulation needs. To date we haven’t had any issues with her gagging herself or jamming the long tube part down her throat. If she did accidentally shove it down her throat, I am sure it would not cause any major problems due to the flexibility of the tube part. Either way, it is worth keeping an eye on your baby while they chew on this since they could jam it down their throat. One thing I liked about this over other teethers is that the tube part is flexible and the teether is all one piece, so there is no need to worry about a piece falling off and choking baby.
Chewy tubes are a great product and they are a great source of providing oral stimulation, especially for a child that is constantly putting everything else in their mouths. I have used these with my toddler and with my 7yo with autism and they hold up nice under the onslaught of gnashing teeth. Does it stop them completely from mouthing things they shouldn’t, no, but they can take a beating and hold up nicely. My boys didn’t get a ton of use out of them, but I can see how they can be incredibly helpful.
Would He Bite? Yes!
I was honestly starting to get concerned. Our two year old was upset not to have a binky any more and he was putting not-so-great things in his mouth. With a sibling on the way I suspected we’d face binky wars if we didn’t figure something out. We got it, it looked good, but would he bite?We presented it as a special, new big boy chewy. We didn’t give it to him to pacify him. It didn’t become an all-day sucker. We showed him where it was kept and told him he could have it whenever he wanted it. He made the connection that the pacifier was for babies and also hard to get. But he could easily get the chewy and work out his chewing mood when he needed to. When we found him mouthing books or toys we re-directed him to the chewy. He even sometimes asks for his chewy.Mouthing objects, chewing books and sampling paper have all now greatly diminished, in part, I guess because of his chewy. It’s sturdy, well-made and I don’t have concerns about safety. We have had the original pair for over a year and they have held up perfectly. He doesn’t use the chewy every day but it does satisfy his desire to chew.
Great product, durable
It was a great size, a lot of people complained about it being too small… it’s just right. you can attach it to a lanyard, a key ring… we put it on a key ring then on a badge holder (for work).my kid is 2 and has sensory issues. He likes that it makes squeaky noises when you chew on it. I think it’s helped him not bite in a few situations… but we still have a ways to go.. this was a good product for what we wanted to do, which is curb our son’s tendancy to bite the wrong things. and he has a STRONG bite, and it’s held up really well. Overall i’d highly recommend, and can’t see what people were complaining about, and we’ve been using it heavily over a month now.
MY TWIN BOYS LIKES THESE
I brought these for my 3 yr old autistic twin sons, they like to chew on them only if i put them in the refrigerator to cool, then they throw them down when the cold run out. They are ok…considering they were not expensive. I’ll keep trying to get them to chew on them.
