Who would have thought, little Sybil is now eight months old and still no teeth. Her three siblings all cut their first tooth around six months old so I have been waiting for that first white bud to appear for a while without anything happening. Even though there are no teeth to show for it just yet she has been chewing and chomping away on anything she can get her hands on. To avoid her going through my handbag and digging up all kinds of unsuitable items to munch on we have given her her very own Bubba Bag instead:
The name says it all, the hugely popular Bubba Bag by Gumigem is a bag specifically made for babies. These cute blue neoprene bags are light weight and washable and filled with four gorgeous teething toys inspired by mama’s musthaves: car keys, a phone, a credit card and a purse. Each Bubba Bag toy is made from soft and flexible silicone that can safely be chewed on by teething babies without damaging those precious little teeth.
The contents of the Bubba Bag ($40) are the perfect size for little hands and the bag is cleverly designed to stand up and stay open so babies can easily access their own toys by themselves which is great for their motor skills. Our little girl loves playing with these teething toys and we use them a lot when out and about, they’re just what you need when you need to keep your baby quiet and entertained in the car, at church or when visiting friends and family.
The credit card, phone and purse toy can be used from birth, while the recommended age for the car keys is 10 months and up. Each toy has a different shape and colours to keep it interesting, baby Sybil is particularly keen on the bright red purse, because of the colour it is easy to spot and it looks like the knobs soothe her tender gums. She also uses the car keys to get to the hard-to-reach spots and she likes shaking them like a rattle (a very quiet one, thankfully).
At Gumigem they look further than just looks, all the Bubba Bag toys carry the CE mark and are non-toxic and washable. When your little one drops them on the ground or covers them with food or drool (as they will, the proof is in the picture!) you can just give them a good rinse and they’re good as new again. We love our Bubba Bag and it is no surprise that they sell out faster than Gumigem can get new ones in. To get your teething baby a Bubba Bag too simply place your pre-order online now, new stock is due to arrive next week.
