Wristy Buddy Teething Wristband Review and Giveaway!
My little man is officially teething. While my oldest never had any major issues while teething, even as an infant, my son is a different story. The poor kid is gnawing on everything and clearly hurting! I was excited to have him try the Wristy Buddy: “the ultimate teething wristband.”
I was sent a Wristy Buddy in the cow design for L to try. Wristy Buddys also come in an owl design and a lion design.
According to the Wristy Buddy website, the product is designed for kids who don’t yet have the motor skills to use traditional teething objects. It simply slides onto your child’s wrist and it’s readily available when your little one brings his hand up to his mouth.
We put the Wristy Buddy on L’s wrist when he started showing signs of teething at about three-and-a-half months old. It immediately went into his mouth. At that age, he definitely couldn’t hold onto a teether properly, so the Wristy Buddy was extra cool.
L really likes his Wristy Buddy! He likes to chew on the cow’s ears and horns, and it definitely provides him some relief. He has tried chewing on the blue, textured piece but seems to prefer to plush part of the teether. As far as I’ve seen, he hasn’t yet discovered the red fabric tag on the other end.
Both the hard teether part and the soft tag part are securely connected to the cow. I don’t worry at all that they’ll separate.
The wristband is stretchy and soft. I really like that this teether has a wristband and that, for the most part, it stays on L’s wrist. I don’t have to constantly pick up and rinse it off like other teethers that are constantly dropped on the ground.
My only negative thing to say about this teether is that the wristband is a little too large. Even at his current seven months of age, it’s actually a bit big on my little guy’s wrist, so it falls off often, but L is also quite small. I think if I had used this on my daughter at the same age, it would have fit her fine, but maybe not at three months.
The cow is really absorbent! Babies who are teething tend to drool…. a lot. L is no exception and has drooled all over his Wristy Buddy. I love that he doesn’t end up drooling all over his shirt sleeve and down his front while he’s chewing on the Wristy Buddy. I just throw it into the washing machine and dryer when I do the kids’ laundry and it comes out soft, fresh and good as new.
As parents, of course we worry about the materials in teething toys and other toys that our babies put into their mouths. The Wristy Buddy website advertises that the Wristy Buddy is BPA-free, lead-free, phthalate-free and completely non-toxic.
Something else I like about this teether is that it doesn’t make noise! I know that might sound silly, and please don’t think I’m a grump about toys that make noise, but other teething toys- like the Sophie Giraffe, while amazing, can be so annoying to parents and other kids as the kid gnaws and squeaks, gnaws and squeaks. The Wristy Buddy engages my little guy without getting on everyone else’s nerves!
