MAM are at the forefront of baby and toddler care, with innovative products to make your life easier and your child's life more comfortable.
Their latest innovative product to hit the shops is the MAM Bite and Relax Teether. We were lucky enough to be sent one of these teethers to review....and with perfect timing too as Sophie is now teething (where does the time go?)
The MAM Bite and Relax Teethers are available in two forms, phase 1 which is available from 2 months, and the phase 2 which is suitable from 4 months. It was the Phase 2 we were sent to try.
The Bite and Relax Teethers are designed to be light weight and suitable for little hands. They feature a range of different textures and structures meaning that there is plenty to chew on and to help soothe the pain of new teeth. While the phase 1 is designed more for front teeth, the phase 2 is designed to relieve the cutting of back teeth.
Sophie and Liz have been using it for a while now. Here is what Liz has to say about it...
"Teething is just hideous. It’s as simple as that. Any one who designs anything useful to help your baby deal with it deserves a pay rise and acknowledgement from the Queen. When your child hurts themselves you can usually brush it off with distraction but when it’s their teeth hurting they look at you in a certain way that says ‘HELP ME PLEASE’. When you have toothache when you’re an adult it’s painful so for a baby it must be awful.
The Bite and Relax Phase 2 landed on the doorstep before Christmas and at the perfect time as within that week Sophie cut her first two teeth in two days. The memories of Jonny waking up screaming in the night and being grumpy and restless in the day came streaming back, as did the pretty helpless feeling of not being able to do much except fix the Calpol bottle to a drip and comfort him as best we could. We’ve tried the teethers that you put in the fridge or freezer with both children and they hated them. The designs are quite bulky and it’s not surprising they couldn’t get their teeth around them. Material didn’t work either. Nothing did. This teether, however, is different.
The design is great and Sophie finds it easy to hold on to and pass from hand to hand. Once she had it in her mouth there was no letting go and she chewed and chewed. The little rivets on the teether are ideal as they can massage the gum to help the tooth cut through. She can fit it right to the back of her mouth whilst still keeping a firm grip and it certainly made a difference during those painful days.
The portability of the product is excellent. It can be sterilised any way at all and has a little box that it is sterilised in which makes it really easy to keep clean and transport. If you have a microwave you literally bung in it (after washing) for three minutes and it’s done so no messing around with sterilising solutions and plastic tupperware. My only criticism would be that the mark on the box for the amount of water isn’t very clear as the condensation hides it. However, that’s just a small point as after a couple of times using the box you know where the mark is anyway.
I really wish we’d had this for Jonny. Excellent product."
