Review: MAM teething products
Founded in Vienna in 1976, MAM has been designing essential baby care products world-wide. MAM has worked with pediatric dentist, orthodontists, pediatricians, midwives, and even developmental psychologists to develop their products. MAM makes BPA-free bottles, cups, pacifiers, teethers, and oral care.
Not all teethers are made the same, especially plastic ones. Plastics can contain all sorts of nasty chemicals that can leach into your baby's mouth. That's why it's important to read labels and find out what kind of materials are used. MAM uses silicone and PP (#5) which are undisputed for meeting world-wide regulations.
MAM sent us a variety of their teething products to test and I am very impressed. Little man is working on his first 2 teeth coming in. They are about to break the skin and he has been chewing on everything. I love the wide variety of choices MAM offers to help in phase 1 and 2 of teething!
We received the Bite & Brush, Massaging Brush, Bite & Relax, MAM Cooler and Mini Cooler and Clip. His favorite is actually the Massaging Brush.
The Massaging Brush has 4 different textures to soothe gums in addition to the handle. I love how the shape resembles a tooth brush to encourage an early brushing routine! The small shape of the brushes allow your baby to reach any part of their gums. The Massaging Brush is recommended for babies 3 months+. It is available in blue and pink for $3.99.
The Cooler is great for reaching molars. It has an easy to hold curved handle, which also can be used as a teether. There are 5 structures to use for teething for different biting pressures. You can store the Cooler in the fridge or freezer for cool relief, though the handle stays room temperature. The Cooler is available in green, blue, and pink for only $6.99.
The Mini Cooler comes with a handy clip so you don't have to worry about your baby dropping on the dirty floor. This is especially awesome for when out and about! The Mini Cooler is great for babies 2 months+ and the small, light design easily fits into their hands. It can ease sore gums and even reach the back gums. You can freeze or refrigerate the Mini Cooler to help soothe and calm. It is available in green, pink, and blue for $6.99.
I like how the Bite & Relax teether resembles a pacifier but has more pressure points. Every baby loves to gnaw on their pacifier, and now they can while relieving teething pain. The Bite & Relax was specifically designed to help emerging front teeth. A stage 2 is available for other emerging teeth. It also comes in a sterilizing box which is great to keep stored in your diaper bag! You can get the Bite & Relax for $4.99.
Bite & Brush is great for babies to gently clean their first teeth with the silicone bristles. It also gently massages gums and gives teething relief. The small circle is easy to grasp for tiny hands and is recommended for babies 3 months+. The Bite & Brush is available in green, pink, and blue for $6.99.
