- Be sure to choose product made from 100% food grade silicone. Fillers can compromise the quality and durability of silicone.
- Confirm that all colourants used are not BPA-based and that lead testing has been done, especially for brightly coloured products.
- Don’t be fooled by Thermo-Plasticized-Rubber (TPR) products. They look and feel much the same, but TPR isn’t as durable and doesn't tolerate high heat like silicone does. Products like these measuring cups made from TPR often have a rigid plastic skeleton and may warp when exposed to heat.
- Be aware that phosphate-free dish washing detergents may cause silicone products to end up with water spots or hold onto certain smells/tastes.
Tips for Choosing and Using Silicone Products
My poor little bubba is struggling and it's horrible seeing him so unsettled. We've been doing a number of things to try and soothe his sore gums and the lovely company Mombella saw my pleading tweets and asked if Henry would like to try their Octopus Teether. Of course, any teething mumma is going to say yes!
This little dude (or dudette?!) is such a well thought out design. It's perfect for little hands and offers tot's lots of different types of textures to nibble on to help sooth all areas on the gums. I have found lots of teether's seem too large for little ones mouths, but this seems to be the perfect size.
#1. Mombella Octopus Teether Someday, when I’m 97 and no longer have my pearly whites. I think I’m going to hide this in one of the nursery home drawers.
Don’t those little legs with the pointy thingy’s just look like they would feel good on sore tender gums? (They do.) Now you know what to buy me for my birthday in 2075.
