The hardest part about being a parent is seeing your child in any sort of pain and discomfort and not being able to take their pain away.
TEETHING, the nightmare that it is, is one of these times. I wish beyond wishes that Callum was one of those children that just popped the teeth through and suffered no discomfort. Unfortunately, he is not. He is one of the lucky ones that seems to have a hard time with it and no amount of Tylenol or Orajel seems to help.
I’ve tried just about every type of teether there is; from Sophie the Giraffe and the raspberry soother to the rings you freeze and the Munch Mitt, you name it, I’ve probably tried it, and nothing seemed to work. Don’t get me wrong, all these products are great, and a lot of children really find relief in them, but with Callum he will just toss them aside, as if they are too much work to hold onto, and continue to chew on his blankets, which he seemed to prefer over any teether.
So when I received Kushies chewbib, it was sort of like getting the best of both worlds. It’s a bandana bib with a teether, and Callum seemed to really take to it. Not only is it made of soft cotton material (which is what Callum’s blankets are primarily made of), but a silicone teether is attached right to the bib, and as an added bonus there are a couple of silk ribbons to chew on and play with (I don’t know what it is about ribbons but every kid I know seems to love them).

This is a great product for parents with teething babies, and is a wonderful registry item and gift idea.
Side note: I hated putting bibs on Callum because I always felt they ruined his outfits, so I would often forgo the bibs and just change his entire outfit if he spit-up, drooled or spit on himself. With the various cute and stylish patterns these bibs come in, they would have actually complimented is outfits and saved me a lot of laundry in the process.
