Two Bottles for Different Stages from Nuby

Two Bottles for Different Stages from Nuby

You’re pregnant, all the excitement starts to settle and it hits you that you’ll be a parent either for the first time, or you’re doing it again.  You start planning all the things you think you need to get you prepared for baby, you make lists and you start to set up your registry.  What kind of bottles did you put on your registry?  As a mother of four I’ve used quite a few bottles over the years, and over time I’ve learned about all the different stages of bottles.  I’m a Nuby Parent Blogger, and I received some of the bottles mentioned in my post for review purposes.

Most parents always get the first stage of bottles for babies.  These are usually in baby shower gift bags all the time.  I have a few favorites from Nuby that are perfect for baby shower gifts and starter bottles.

The Nuby Natural Touch Infant Bottle with Easy Latch Nipple is perfect for newborns.  If you’re planning on breastfeeding and bottle feeding this bottle is a good choice.  If you’re only using a bottle get baby started with this bottle once you’re home from the hospital.  It is an easy flow nipple so you know baby isn’t getting too much formula or breast milk.  If you’re breast feeding and bottle feeding, start with breast feeding first, once your baby has gotten their latch good slowly introduce the bottle.  This bottle has a wide nipple and moves and flexes to imitate mom’s nipple.  Another thing I love about these bottles is that it helps eliminate colic in babies.  You can purchase the Nuby Natural Touch Infant Bottle with Easy Latch Nipple at Walmart.

The Nuby Natural Touch Bottle to Cup bottle is the perfect choice for slowly transitioning your child from a bottle to sippy cup.  When I was in the market for sippy cups it was a total nightmare for me.  I ended up trying at least ten different cups with my first.  This bottle can be used with babies 3 months and older.  This bottle grows with your baby, you start with the breast sized nipple and then transition to the no spill sprout included with the bottle.  It also has removable handles which works great when you’re switching to the sprout and ready to mimic a cup with handles.  I’ve found that I had much better success with switching over from a bottle to cup using these, I’ve used one with all four of my children.  You can purchase the Nuby Natural Touch Bottle to Cup bottle from Babies R Us stores nationwide.

Cute Snacking Bowl Options from NUBY #NUBY #BabyMustHaves

Cute Snacking Bowl Options from NUBY

Toddlers can be challenging, and I’ve found feeding to be one of the mos challenging aspects of life.  All children are different and so are their eating habits.  My oldest, which is my only daughter was super easy with transitioning from bottles to sipping cups, then feeding herself.  My second, who’s my oldest son was breast fed and a nightmare to transition.  The two youngest also had different challenges.  One thing I highly suggest is getting toddlers their own cups, bowls, plates, and utensils, when transitioning.

NUBY Snacking Bowls

Disclosure: I’m a member of NUBY’s Parent Blogger program, I received the items in this post for free in exchange for an honest review. Any opinions expressed are my own.

When looking for snack bowls for my toddler, I wanted bowls that were affordable, fun, durable, and the right size for him.  What I loved about both sets of bowls from NUBY is that they are just the right size for toddlers.  I was over sized or huge. They offered them in fun colors and they worked for stacking as well.  I was able to store both sets within each other, helping me save precious space in my cupboards.

The NUBY Printed Bowls comes in two pattern choices, one for girls and one for boys.  They are recommended for kids six months and older.  I loved the designs on the bowls, love that I could use all the lids with all the bowls and not just by the color pattern.  They are resuable, but if you lose them you don’t feel like you’re losing a whole lot of money.  The NUBY Printed Bowls are available for purchase on Amazon, and features include:

  • 6 months +
  • 10 oz/ 300 ml
  • 4 Reusable feeding bowls & snap on lids
  • Ideal for travel
  • Easy for baby to hold
  • Fun colors & prints
  • Top rack dishwasher safe
  • BPA FREE

The NUBY Stackable Bowls with Lids are just as durable and worked great for us.  This set has four bowls, two matching lids, and two lids that were a contrasting color.  I actually loved mixing up the lids on the bowls.  Another feature I loved were the flat lids, this allowed me to stack them with food and snacks when traveling or when stored in the refrigerator.  These are also the prefect size for meals, and my son can hold them with no trouble at all.  These I also found to be a tad bit more durable than the Printed Bowls, but they work well for travel and the price is great so you don’t feel like you’re breaking the bank if they need replacing.  You can purchase the NUBY Stackable Bowls with Lids at Meijer’s Grocery Stores, additional features include:

  • 6 months +
  • Set includes: 4 bowls with sealing lids and 2 long handle feeding spoons
  • Long handle spoon for easy feeding
  • Dishwasher & Microwave Safe
  • Stacking bowls for easy storage
  • Sealing lids keeps food fresh
  • BPA FREE

The Battle of the Sippy Cups #NubyParent #Review

The Battle of the Sippy Cups

Transitioning to a sippy cup can be a hard for kids, with all four of my children I found myself in a constant battle of finding the right cup for my kids.  I would like to say it got easier with each child but that simply wasn’t the case at all.  My oldest child took at least five different tries, the second child was breast fed so we just couldn’t get anything to work for him, my third child has sensory issues, developmental delays, and Autism so it took us a while to find the perfect fit, and then with our fourth child we had the same battle.  At one he showed no signs of wanting to give up his bottle, so we ended up trying a variety of sippy cups.

sippy cup battle

I’m a Nuby Parent and I receive products to write reviews.  Any opinions expressed are my own and have not been influenced.

Thanks to my Nuby Parent connect I didn’t have to break the bank to find the right sippy cup for our fourth child.  They sent me five cups to review and share my thoughts with my readers.  I’m sure you know that with kids sippy cups can get lost or misplaced and that’s why you see only four in our photo.  My son put one down somewhere when I was taking the photo but we had already been testing for a month.  I’ll start in order of how I suggest you start trying out and then share with you which ones my son loved the most.

This is the blue bottle in the photo above – Busy Sipper 2 Stage Cup.  It comes with two inserts and I loved it for transitioning my son from a bottle to a cup.  He immediately took to this bottle because of the shape.  It reminded him of his regular bottles so he didn’t dismiss it right away.  This cup has two stages of nipples.  Stage one is the soft silicone spout, it doesn’t spill and perfect for moving from a bottle nipple to trying out sippy cups.  It has a faster flow than a baby bottle nipple so I suggest giving it a try once your child has mastered a fast nipple.  For my son that was around 14 months.  It could be sooner or later for some kids.  There is also a stage 2 free flow pull-up sipper and I didn’t use that with my son.  He’s just not read for a free flow sipper yet.  I find that he makes a huge mess when we give him an free flow sipper.  This bottle also comes with a clip, but we never used it at all.  This is a 12 oz bottle/cup, and you can purchase it at Walmart.

This is the Wash or Toss Free Flow Spout Printed Cups.  These are sold in three packs and can be purchased at Target.  I’ve used these with all my children.  My autistic son only drank from these when he first started out with sippy cups.  I love them because they are very affordable, easy to clean, and disposable.  I love having these when we are traveling.  If I forget to bring a cup I know I can head to the store and pick up a three pack, and if they get lost or broken, I can easily replace them for a low price.  These cups come with fun designs that are colorful and engaging.  Be careful with these because the tops don’t have covers so they do cause spills.  The cups are 10 ozs and the lids are easy to snap on and off the cups.  Although it was easy to snap on my son wasn’t able to get it off on his own.  These are definitely a great travel cup.

nuby sippy cup (4)

The Insulated Stainless Steel No-Spill Soft Sipper is a 7.5 oz trainer sippy cup.  It’s perfect for introducing your child to independent drinking.  It’s small enough so they get a nice amount of fluids.  This cup will keep drinks cool up to 10 hours, so it’s a great travel cup or one for overnight feedings.  Nuby suggests trying this cup at 6 months plus.  The handles are perfect for holding so your child doesn’t have to try to hold the base of the cup.  The soft spout works great between a regular nipple and the one on the cup.  My son liked chewing on his and gritting it on his teeth.  He still like using it now.

This is another insulated sippy cup, this cup is a 9 oz cup and recommended for kids at 12 months and older.  This is the Insulated Stainless Steel No-Spill Flip-it.  The is perfect for  helping your child transition from using a spout and pulling up in a straw.  This was the last cup we tried with my son in the set.  One he was pulling up from this straw it was easy for us to get him to pull up in any type of straw in any cup.  At this point we stopped with his bottles completely.  I slowly threw them away once we introduced each cup and got him to drink both milk and apple juice from the cups.  This cup also keeps liquids cool for up to 10 hours and it’s great for traveling.  This one is probably one of my favorites.  You can purchase this cup at Babies R Us.

The No-Spill Insulated Cool Sipper is the perfect cup to help transition to using an open cup.  Recommended for kids 18 months and older.  This was the cup my son was using the most because we wanted to get him into drinking from an open cup.  This is also the cup not pictured.  This cup holds 9 oz of fluids and keeps drinks cool longer than regular cups.  The soft silicone spout worked great for our son because he didn’t like cups with the tough plastic tops.  This cup is lightweight and easy for him to get a good grip.  You can find these cups in two packs in stores and online at Babies R Us.

So there you have it five great options for sippy cups from Nuby.  Each one has different benefits.  For us my son immediately took the Busy Sippy because it was shaped like a bottle.  He used that for about a week before taking the Insulated Sipper with the handles, shortly after that he took the Cool Sipper and then the Take and Toss.  The last cup he took was the Flip-It with the straw.  It took him a while to realize he had to pull up to get his drink and not just tilt the cup up like the others.  Now after months of trying all kinds of cups he drinks from anything with a straw and he can also drink open cup.

Safari Chimes Review

Safari Chimes Review

Now that our baby is older he doesn’t really like his car seat much.  He actually really dislikes the thing.  I was thinking of reasons why he would probably be upset and then it dawned on me.  As a Nuby Parent Blogger I received items for review.  Any opinions expressed are my own.

Now that our son is getting older he isn’t just falling asleep in the car seat anymore.  He’s awake and that means he’s either fussy or he’s playing.  I wanted to find something that would keep him occupied while he was traveling in the car.  The Safari Chimes from Nuby were perfect for his car seat handle bar.  It kept him occupied when he was awake, and that meant he wasn’t crying constantly.

The Safari Chimes were easy to use and attach to the car seat handle.  It’s just as easy to remove as well.  The chimes are the prefect length, it’s not too long or too short it’s the perfect length for our son right now.  He can easily grab it and play with it when we’re in the car.  It keeps him distracted while we’re traveling and he’s awake.  It’s soft and plushy, plus there are no small parts so it’s safe if he’s pulling on it or if he happens to put it in his mouth.  Now I don’t have to worry about small parts.  They also play some music which helps with calming him on the ride.  It’s a great toy for him and it works perfect for rides from our house to the grandparents house.

Nuby Mommy Monster Set Review

Nuby Mommy Monster Set Review

Disclosure:  I am a Nuby Mommy and I was provided the products above for review, any and all opinions expressed are my own.

My toddler hasn’t had his own special plates or anything like that.  I guess that’s what happens when you have an older brother.  I just let him use something his older brother isn’t using.  Plus he hasn’t showed any interest in show characters so I could buy him his favorite.  Finally I wanted to get him something of his own and Nuby came to the rescue with their iMonster Plate, Bowl and Spoon & Fork set.  It’s all he needs for his eating needs for the most part and he’s been enjoying the whole set.  Plus as a bonus it’s a great way to teach my son about eyes, mouth, teeth, fingers and feet.

The iMonster Toddler Plate is just the right size for all his meals.  It has a sturdy grip on the sides so it’s easy for him to pick it up if he needs to move for any reason.  The plate has sturdy orange legs (they are supposed to be monster legs) that keep the plate firm on the table.  The whole monster design is very cute and fun for my toddler.  He loves eating his food to see the monster mouth.  He likes eating dinner from his plate.

About the iMonster Toddler Plate:

  • 18 months +
  • Easy grip handles
  • Feeding is fun for baby and easy for you!
  • Fun character keeps baby interested in feeding
  • Ideal for children who are beginning to feed themselves
  • BPA FREE
  • Available retailers: JC Penny, buybuy Baby, Amazon, Diapers.com, Cookies Kids and Kohls.com

The iMonster Fork & Spoon is a great beginner set for toddlers learning to feed themselves.  The base is wide enough for a good grip and it’s shorter than regular utensils.  The fork is not sharp at all but it can pick up food with ease.  My son uses his all the time even if he’s not using it with the other parts of the set.  I would recommend getting more than one set so you have them to use at all times.  It’s a great starter set.

About the iMonster Fork & Spoon:

  • 18 months +
  • Mealtime is fun again!
  • Easy for little hands to hold and use
  • Fun bright colors!
  • BPA FREE
  • Available Retailers: buybuy Baby, Amazon, Cookies Kids and Kohls.com

The iMonster Snack Keeper was my favorite of all the items.  I loved how it kept my toddler from making a huge mess around the house.  Usually when I give him food in open bowls tons of it ends up on the floor.  With his bowl he can just slip his hands into the bowl and grab his snacks.  The bowl has a very tight seal and it’s hard for my toddler to get it opened, even I have difficulty opening the bowl.  I love this because he can’t just pour all the food on the floor.  The bowl is also perfect for the car as well.  This bowl is sure to make snack time less stressful.

About the iMonster Snack Keeper:

  • 12 months +
  • Bright colors
  • Fun iMonster™ design
  • Super soft lid keeps snacks trapped inside
  • Fewer spills, less waste, mess free snacking
  • BPA FREE

Wacky Teething Ring & Teethe-eez Teether Set Review

Wacky Teething Ring & Teethe-eez Teether Set Review

I’ve been sharing with you some of Nuby’s teething products for moms/caregivers that have children in that stage.  The Wacky Teething Ring and the Teethe-eez Teether is a set with two different teethers.  Each for a different stage of teething.  They both do just about the same thing but one is for younger babies and the other for babies that are a little older.  The first is the Teethe-eez Teether.

This teether is for babies getting those first two teeth down at the bottom.  It’s made of extra soft silicone and is made for them to chew on all over.  The wide top is perfect for helping keep babies tongue clean and free of formula build up.  I like to give this to my son later in the day or closer to nap times.  It’s nice and soft so it’s soothing to him.  It also comes with a case to keep it safe and secure when not in use.  I really like this teether and I recommend it as a first step teether.

The Wacky Teething Ring is for babies three months and older.  It fits perfectly in my sons hands and it’s great for when he’s active and playing.  He loves hearing the little crinkle noise when he’s playing with the small fabric surface.  Unlike the Teethe-eez this one doesn’t come with a protector case so you have to make sure you keep it clean and in a safe place.  My son’s fell under his crib and it pick up dust and hair in the silicone surface.  I just washed it with warm soapy water and wiped it with the pacifier wipes from Nuby.  This one is really fun and colorful, making it a great toy and teether for the car, at home, and just about anywhere baby goes.

You can purchase these are TJ Maxx and individually at several retailer including online sites such as Buy.com and Amazon.  Connect with Nuby on social media: Like on Facebook, Follow on Twitter and Instagram.  They are always hosting giveaways for fans.

Warm & Sterilize Baby Bottles with One Touch

Warm & Sterilize Baby Bottles with One Touch

Nuby-One-Touch-Electric-Bottle-Warmer-and-Sterilizer-

Aside from reviewing lots of teething products from Nuby recently I also had the opportunity to review one of their bottle warmers.  It can warm and sterilize baby bottles with one touch.  It’s so easy to use.  I wanted to show just how easy it was to use by posting a video on Youtube that shows me using it for the first time.  I just popped it out the box and read the directions and recorded the video.  You can view the video below:

Using this item has been so easy.  It’s just as simple as I said in my video.  I opened my box, using the measuring cup that came with the unit and follow the directions for the amount of water to place in the warmer and sterilizer, I put my item in, plug it in and pull the button on the front.  It’s that easy and simple for me to use and I’m sure it would be for you as well.   I was able to use mines with Nuby, Tommee Tippee and another brand of bottle.  They all fit perfectly and worked great for warming the bottles as well as sterilizing.  After you’ve used the unit make sure you wipe the inside dry and make sure you store it in a dry place.  I also suggest wiping it before using as well.  You can also use this unit to warm baby food as well.  There’s a part in the unit to adjust for bottle sizes, it also includes a basket to put the items in the unit.  It’s a great product and it’s super easy to use.

About the One Touch Electric Warmer & Sterilizer:

One-Touch™ Electric Warmer & Sterilizer

Nuby Teether Tugz Review

Nuby Teether Tugz Review

Being a part of the Nuby Mom community has been an amazing experience and getting to review all the different awesome products with my children are an added bonus.  I love being able to find great products and share with you my thoughts and experiences with them.  I’ve been reviewing teething products recently because our newborn is getting in that stage and I wanted to try an array of products with him to see what worked best for him.  One of them was the Nuby Teether Tugz.  I was a bit apprehensive about this product because of all the fabric on it.  I am used to gel teethers that you freeze and give to baby so I didn’t know what to expect with these products.  When they first arrived my son wasn’t interested in teething products just yet but now he’s enjoying all the products we’ve been testing from Nuby.

I have to say that my infant has been enjoying this guy.  He loves it because he can toss it around and it’s easy for him to get a grip on it.  I find that with his smaller teething items when they drop he just gets cranky or forget about them, with this however he’s able to grab for it when it falls in his sleep or crib.  He can turn it around and nibble on the different surfaces although he’s a huge fan of the face.  For some reason he goes straight for the nose first.  You do have to be careful with it because it’s mostly fabric so I use a pacifier wipe on it to clean it if it falls on the ground.  Be sure to store it in a cool, dry and dust free place.  It will pick up dust and lint if you are not careful.  Overall I would give it four stars because it’s not just a teether, it’s a toy as well.  My only hang up is the fabric picking up lint and dust.

Nuby Teething Blankie Review

Nuby Teething Blankie Review

My baby is getting older and he’s reaching that stage of itchy gums.  His hands are always in his mouth and he’s drooling like crazy.  As a Nuby Mommy I have the opportunity to share my Nuby Teething Blankie Review with you.  This isn’t my first time dealing with teething.  This is my fourth child so I know all the things that go into teething.  One of the key things is to make sure you have something to stimulate the baby gums at all times.

I love this teething blankie because it has multiple surfaces for my son to chew on.  It’s a nice little comforting teether that he can easily grab on his own and it’s also very soothing.  He likes trying to squeeze the little tiger because it has squeaks when you squeeze it.  Each corner of the blanket has a surface for the baby to chew on.  It works great for when we are in the car and he’s cranky we just give him the blankie and he can play with it.  It’s been so soothing to him when his gums start to bother him and just a fun item to have for him to play with.  I like that it’s a nice size so it’s easy to keep track of it and now worry about it getting lost.

Nuby Plush Character Pacifinder Review

 Nuby Plush Character Pacifinder Review

 

I’ve been enjoying my time as a Nuby Mommy and getting to try all sorts of products from their wonderful line.  This round I went for teething items since our newborn was starting that process soon.  He is just shy of four months and he’s starting to constantly try to chew on items.  This is where my handy Nuby Plush Character Pacifinder comes in very handy.  Since my newborn is choosing his fingers, bibs or my fingers over his pacifier right now.  I wanted to make sure that I knew where it was at all times.  He uses a Tommee Tippee Pacifier along with the one they give them in the hospital.  They both needed something to be added to them so I could keep up with them at all times.  With the pacifinder I just clip it on the edge of his clothing or his blankets, so when he’s not using it I can easily locate it.  It also works great for when we are traveling and he’s in the car-seat.  I would often lose track of them when they were lose but with the pacifinder attached it’s easier to locate when they’re not clipped to anything.  They’re very affordable and comes in a variety of color choices.

Nuby Comb & Brush Set Review

Nuby Comb & Brush Set Review

Disclosure: I am a Nuby Mommy Blogger and I was provided the product below for review purposes.  Any and all opinions are my own and have not been influenced.

I’ve realized when planning for baby it’s the simple gifts we often forget to include in registries or gifts to expecting parents.  For me it got worst as with every pregnancy because you start to cross off some of those things you really didn’t need but you forget those small must haves.  When we had our fourth child in December I totally didn’t have a baby shower I just figured I wouldn’t do one.  We found ourselves needing everything because we donated all our other items the year before, but I still didn’t want to have a shower.  Slowly we chipped away at our list and one of my sisters really came through for us but when baby arrived I found we were missing quite a few of the basic needs, one being a Comb & Brush Set.  It may seem simple but we didn’t have one at all and you don’t want to use your regular combs and brushes with baby so I got the Nuby Comb & Brush Set to review on my blog and it was just perfect.

Baby Comb & Brushes are a must for newborns, and our son was getting some cradle cap so we wanted to make sure we treated it before it became bad.  The brush had very soft bristles just right for baby.  I didn’t have to worry about it being hard on his scalp or leaving behind any scratches.  It was great with managing his unruly hair after washing.  I love the comb because some of the teeth are rounded at the tips so it’s also very safe to use on baby and when I used it to help stimulate his scalp to remove the cradle cap it didn’t irritate his scalp or scratch his skin at all.  Both worked perfectly and I recommend them for all babies.  Next time you get invited to a baby shower or visiting with a new parent pick up a Nuby Comb & Brush Set as a small gift just in case they forgot to get one for themselves.

Nuby Squid Squirter Review

Nuby Squid Squirter Review

Disclosure: I am a Nuby Mommy Blogger and I was provided the product below for review purposes.  Any and all opinions are my own and have not been influenced.

This was the last in of the bath toys the kids got to review from Nuby.  I picked it out because it was cute and it worked well with the other two.  Honestly I still haven’t figured it out yet.  Mines seemed to have a shifted seal at the top but I am not sure if it was a defect or not.  When I tried the Nuby Squid Squirter it pulled in the water fine but when I pushed the handle down to squirt the water back into the tum it barely squirted out.  My five year old son had a better time with it and he got it to squirt a few times.  He liked it the most because he could squirt water on his other bath toys or just in the water.  Despite my troubles I really like this toy because it makes bath time play less messy in my house.  Before getting it my kids would use small cups in the tub to pour water on their other toys and they would end up spilling lots of that out of the tub.  With the Squid Squirter they are using less water and it’s easier for them to control where they spray water.  Its a nice toy for fans of squids.

Octopus Floating Bath Toy Review

Octopus Floating Bath Toy Review

Disclosure: I am a Nuby Mommy Blogger and I was provided the product below for review purposes.  Any and all opinions are my own and have not been influenced.

My kids got the opportunity to try out some great bath toys from Nuby.  I’ve never really brought toys specifically for the tub so they kids would usually just take items they think would hold up in the water.  So when they got the Octopus Floating Bath Toy they wanted to use it right away.  As soon as I opened the box the kids wanted to move up their bath time by three hours.  Waiting was so hard for them.  When they finally opened up the toys and got in the tub I had to remind each child they needed to get out so I can prepare baths for their brother or sister.  Even though the toy seems like it’s more toddlers my six and five year old loved it.  They play with it as much as their two year old brother.  They love trying to toss the rings on the tentacles of the Octopus.  I love that since it floats they are not digging in the tub trying to find lost toys that sunk to the bottom.  It’s a great buy for bath time and my kids give it five stars.

Bathtime can be so hectic and crazy when you have young children.  I always end up doing a total transformation of the bathroom before and after bath time because if I don’t I’ll be replacing the mats in our bathroom daily.  Each child spills more and more water out the tub and since each one of them like a different toy it’s so hectic keeping all the bath toys in one place.  Our old method of keeping a toy bucket next to the tub wasn’t working well because of limited space and when the kids took baths they would put the wet toys back in the bucket and it would collect water and that left odor in the bathroom and on the toys.  Our Nuby Sea Scooper Bathtime Toy Storage is the solution to these problems.

As you can see the Scooper is a nice size but it’s not to big and overpowering that the kids don’t enjoy it.  My kids are 6, 5 and 2 so it was easy for them to use it during bath time.  When you first put it in the water it floats for a few seconds and then starts to go under water.

As you can also see there’s lots of open spaces for water to fall through, which I love because the kids can’t pick up water and toss it around making a pool on the outside of the tub like they normally do.

The scooper came with this white hook to hang the scooper when it’s not in use.  I like this because ours is over the tub so any excess water drains when it’s hanging and all the toys are dry by the bath time.

It has a decent amount of storage space as well.  Right now it has only their new Nuby toys but they have added to it since then.

Nuby 3 Stage Teether Set Review

Nuby 3 Stage Teether Set Review

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Disclosure: I am a Nuby Mommy Blogger and I am sent items for review.  Any and all opinions expressed are my own and have not been influenced.

As a new mom again for the forth time I know all too well some of the things that come along with children that we all deal with.  Each child is different in the way they deal with different issues but one thing that’s been the sane for me thus far with all four of my children is teething.  All three of my other children had a rough time with teething so I want to be prepared as much as I can for when our newborn start entering  that stage.  Once those gums start itching you can tell because baby starts to rub their hands in their mouth or they start to nibble on the pacifier.  There’s a very wide variety of teething products on the market and Nuby has quite a few but I wanted to share about this set because it has three different stages for your child when they start showing signs of teething.

Step 1: Teethe-eez Super Soft Teether

  • Unique textured design provides comfort to baby’s delicate gums
  • Assists in the eruption of teeth by gently massaging infant’s gums
  • Includes hygienic carrying case

This is the first step in the system.  It’s for use from zero to three months or until you start the second teether.  This one also has a section that helps with cleaning baby’s tongue.  This is for those first two bottom teeth.  My nephew is using this one and his mom said it helped him with his itching gums right away.  She didn’t even think he was ready for teething yet.  This keeps him settled between feedings and keeps his hands out his mouth.

Step 2: Softees soft silicone teether

  • Unique textured design provides comfort to baby’s delicate gums
  • Provides stimulus to the lips and tongue, which promotes the transition from nursing to chewing
  • Includes hygienic carrying case

This is the second one in the set, its a bit more durable for more chewing and grinding when baby’s teeth start to come in.  The handles are useful for holding or nibbling as well.  All three come with their own cases so they are clean when you they are not in use.

Step 3: Softees hard and soft teether

  • Unique dual surface helps massage and soothe sore gums
  • Lightweight and easy to hold teether
  • Small in size, but big on comfort
  • Includes hygienic carrying case

This is the final teether in the set and it’s for helping baby when more of those other teeth start popping up.  It has two different surfaces so baby can choose which one they prefer.  This also has multiple grip surfaces making it perfect for kids to hold on to. It also have a case to keep it safe when not in use.

All Natural Pacifier and Teether wipes with Citroganix.

  • 48-pack of wipes
  • Convenient reusable package is perfectly sized for your diaper bag or purse

The wipes that came with the teethers and perfect for keeping them all clean and safe for baby.  It’s all natural and doesn’t contain alcohol.  Great for pacifers and teethers.  You can purchase this set online at www.walmart.com
