Happy October, friends! It is officially my favorite month of the entire year. I cannot wait to watch Hocus Pocus and Casper over and over again, but until then, I am trying my own magic to help Little Jimmie deal with his teething pain by making it disappear.
Jimmie started teething about a month ago, and since he still doesn’t have any teeth, this momma has had to deal with more than a few fussy days. Over the next few weeks, I am going to be sharing my thoughts on a variety of teething products that we have tried, some have helped and some were a bust.
MAM was nice enough to send me their Bite & Relax -Phase 2 to review. I was intrigued by this teether because it is supposed to support babies with little hands because it it small and lightweight. Ever since Jimmie started teething, he has had trouble keeping any teether in his mouth without my help. As much as I love holding him and easing his pain, he also needs to be able to stick something on his gums when my hands are not available.
I gave Jimmie this teether by clipping it onto his PJs yesterday morning. After clipping it on, the first thing he did was stick it in his mouth. Perfect. The Bite & Relax – Phase 2 kept him engaged for quite some time while I ate breakfast and drank my coffee. Jimmie literally squealed with delight when he stuck the different massage textures on his gums. I was surprised how easy it was for him to stick it in his mouth and keep it in there. Jimmie also really enjoyed analyzing the teether because the shape is so different than all of his other toys, this made it even more interesting to him.
A few times when the teether fell out of his hands, he found it again because it is attached to an awesome pacifier clip. Not only is the teether great, but I absolutely love the MAM pacifier clip because it doesn’t open and close like a regular clip. The holder has a plastic piece that you move to open and close the clip. I have never used a pacifier clip before using one for the teether, but it really is a lifesaver. I don’t have to worry about Jimmie throwing his teether across the room or it falling out of his car seat while we are in the car.
MAM Bite & Relax – Phase 2 is a fantastic teether, not only is it good for easing Jimmie’s gum pain but it also helps him work on his fine motor skills. Children, boys especially, sometimes need extra attention when it comes to fine motor skills. I’m so happy that Jimmie has this little teether to help him continue to work on sticking objects in his mouth, after all that is how babies explore the world.
The MAM Bite & Relax – Phase 2 kept Jimmie calmer longer than many of the other teethers we have tried. I continued to give it to him throughout the day yesterday and it delighted him every time. As a bonus, the teether comes with a great carrying case to keep it clean from everything else in your diaper bag; this is a big plus because I am always misplacing little baby items. The MAM Bite & Relax – Phase 2 will grow with Jimmie and help him throughout all of his teething days (weeks, months!)

I was sent the MAM Bite & Relax – Phase 2 teether and pacifier clip in exchange for an honest review. Thanks MAM!
