Proper oral hygiene should start when the first tooth pushes through the gums on a baby. Knowing how important that can be, MAM ® has created a nice line of baby oral care products that make caring for those tiny teeth easy and effortless.
MAM® has provided me with the products mentioned below to review so I could form an opinion and share it with you. Regardless of this agreement, I am not required to give a positive review. I will be honest and fair, be it good or bad.
My baby is 9 months old and has two bottom teeth and more on the way. She has been a happy teether so far, but as her other teeth are working their way out, she has become a chewing machine.
MAM Bite and Brush
The MAM Bite and Brush teether helps relieve some of the pressure on the gums, and simultaneously brushes tiny teeth as well. As it is chewed on it, the small bristles massage the gums and wipe away bacteria on the teeth.
It is very durable and easy for my baby to hold. She enjoys carrying it around and is frequently seen with it.
This is a very cute and multi-functional product. The ears of the rabbit have inserts for adult fingers to slide into, making massaging and cleaning the gums and teeth easy. The soft fabric easily wipes away and bacteria and helps keep the teeth and gums clean. It in-turn because a finger puppet as well, for interactive playing.
The softness of the fabric also makes the Oral Care Rabbit perfect for baby snuggles. I encourage my baby to snuggle and chew on the rabbit as much as possible.
Another thing you can do with the Oral Care Rabbit is to get the ears wet and put it in the freezer. Having a cold cloth for my baby to suck on and chew during teething pains is calming for her, most of the time.
This is versatile cup that is recommended for babies 12m+. It has a unique shape to it, allowing the child to grip it easily while drinking. The lid and nipple of the sports cup is soft and easy for baby to suction onto.
It has an insert inside the lid that prevents the sports cup from leaking and makes it so that the baby has to suck to get liquid from the cup. However, the insert can be removed, allowing for free flowing use. The ability to remove the insert is nice because as your baby grows, the sports cup can grow with him/her.
The age recommendation is good to note on this item. I was allowing my 9 month old to use it and she struggled the first few times because of the size and weight of the sport cup once water was put in it.
I also found that the insert would pop off occasionally if my baby dropped the sports cup or was playing around with it too much. So I had to make sure I watched her closely while using it indoors. My older kids loved using it as a water bottle, so once my baby gets a little bigger, I believe this will be an item we won’t leave the house without.
