Shern's Teethers Reviews

When Shern first started to put things into his mouth to bite, I knew I had to get him something to bite on.

I bought him a few kinds as he likes some more than the others.

1. Pigeon Mr. Strong Teether

-Designed to fit into baby's palm, with an easy-to-grip handle and a firm teething pad.
-Develops baby's grip.
-Biting the rattle teether provides baby with tactile stimulation.
-Shaking the rattle teether develops baby's hearing and sensory perception skills.
-Can be used as a toy from three months old.

Shern didn't fancy it at all. I guess the whole thing is too hard for his gums to bite on. As for the rattling sound, the little thin rings can barely make a sound loud enough to attract his attention. The pastel colour is not attractive enough as well making it useless as a toy.


2. Nûby™ Sea Mates™ - Crab

-Designed to soothe and comfort painful gums and aid with the teething process.
-The multiple teething surfaces allow your baby to chew and cut their first teeth, relieving sore and sensitive gums.
-The soft and fun characters are made from plush material and are just the right size and shape for little hands

The crab is very attractive and it certainly grabs Shern's attention everytime I shake it in front of him.

He likes to bite and suck on the plush cloth material surface. However, it makes it very dirty with his saliva and milk. The instruction says not to be submerged into water and thus making it very difficult to clean properly. The most I can do is to wipe it with a damp cloth but I find it not clean enough.

As for the other surfaces, it is quite difficult for Shern to bite on it.

One thing I like is that it is indeed just the right size and shape for Shern's little hands.


3.MAM Multi Soothe Teethers

-Designed to cool and soothe both front and back gums during painful teething.
-The MAM Multi Soothe Teether was designed to offer optimum comfort and safety for your baby.
-The unique combination of textured cooling and chewing surfaces offer double relief. By chewing the soft textured part of the Multi Soothe Teether, the erupting tooth is pushed gently back into the gum releasing the pressure from the painful area for a short while. Whilst the cool resilient surface soothes and stimulates the inflamed and sore gum areas safely and effectively.
-PVC free.

Shern somehow does not fancy this MAM teether. He will just bite on the cool surface for awhile and then will ignore it.

One thing is that although I put it in the refrigerator for more than 1 hour as per the instructions, I find the cooling effect wears off very quickly. It turns warm in less than 5 mins.


4. Fisher-Price Deluxe Gum Soother

-Easy to grasp water filled teether
-Printed colorful characters and shapes
-Cute character handle to help baby to hold teether
-Part of Fisher Price Peg Program
-Age Range Birth to 2 Years

Shern likes this best of all. He can easily grasp this with his hands and the small individual shape is small enough for him to put into his mouth. He can bite on it for a longer time and he seems to enjoy looking at it too.


Shern at 7 mths plus now does not especially fancy teethers. With 4 teeth, he will just grab whatever is at hand and BITE! Careful your fingers! ;)
