A few weeks ago, I came across a company looking for parents to review a product called the Gummee Glove. I was pretty intrigued and when I found out what it actually was, I replied to their tweet.
The 'My First Gummee Gloves' are anti-scratch mittens designed for babies 0-3 months. Available in 3 colours, the mittens feature raised silicone dots that massage your baby's gums. They have a velcro fastening at the wrist meaning that these mittens stay on! Any parent knows how difficult it is to get baby's mitts to stay on their hands; and if you are concerned about germs, these are also completely machine washable.
Now, Scout isn't teething yet, he's only two months old; but he does love to chew and suck on his hands. In fact it was the first thing he did after he was born.
It took a few attempts to get the mitts onto his hands, as he is a real fidget and tends to always have in hands in fists. I found his hand had to be almost entirely flat to get the mitt on, but once fastened, these suckers don't budge. He wasn't so sure about them at first, but when he discovered that he could still chew on his fingers, he loved them. I imagine the silicone dots felt really nice on his gums and he seemed pretty content for a good while.
I'd recommend these for any parent who's child is a chewer. It'll save their little fingers and feel great on their gums. They'd even make a great baby shower gift, as you probably wouldn't think to purchase them yourself.
Now the weather is starting to cool down a little, I will be putting these on Scout more often. Those hands of his are for sure his favourite thing.
The 'My First Gumme Glove' mittens are available here for only £7.99. You can also purchase a larger glove, complete with biteable side tabs and a water-filled teething ring for babies of 3-6 months.
