When Gummee put out a post on their Instagram story a few weeks back on the hunt for bloggers and their babies to become brand reps I had to apply! I have followed Gummee for a while on Instagram, join in with their giveaways and also watched them on Dragon’s Den!
Darcie is now 9 weeks old and it’s around this time my other children started teething. (My first child got his first tooth at 3 months old!). I was delighted when Gummee said they would like to send me a product in return for an honest review.
As Darcie is 9 weeks old the perfect product for her age range is the Gummee Mitts, they are designed for babies aged 0-3 months but I also received a Gummee Glove Teething Mitten which is suitable for 3-6 months!
Gummee Mitts work as anti-scratch mittens to stop babies from scratching themselves but they also have soft, textured silicon dots on them. If baby puts the glove in their mouth the dots will massage and soothe their gums.
Gummee sent me pink ones for Darcie but they also sell them in blue!
The gloves are made of cotton and are also lined with 100% absorbent cotton. I loved that these can’t make my baby’s hand wet inside the glove.
These are anti-scratch mittens that actually stay on due to the Velcro fastening around the wrist! They are adjustable too meaning they can be adjusted to your baby’s wrist size.
They were very easy to put on and Darcie was happy to wear them.
I wasn’t sure if she would put them in her mouth as she’s not teething yet but she does wave her arms around a lot and scratch her face so they’ve been great at stopping her getting scratched!
I can leave Darcie sitting in her chair and know that she can’t hurt herself.
To my surprise Darcie started putting her hands in her mouth and chewing, I’m not sure if it’s because she’s getting hungry or because she’s beginning to teeth- time will tell! But I am so glad I got the chance to try out these mittens!
I would definitely recommend them as the are versatile and are not only a teething mitten but an anti-scratch mitten.
The best thing about these is that they can be popped in the washing machine! What more could you ask for?
I’m looking forward to using these mittens with Darcie over the next few weeks and once she turns 3 months I will be able to try the Gummee Glove Mitten!
Gummee Glove Mitten
Initially this is the product that caught my eye! I love the design of this glove! I have been sent pink for Darcie but it also comes in turquoise and yellow too! I love the teething tabs on the sides and the removable silicon heart.
Gloves are such a genius way of keeping the teether in your baby’s hand! I remember constantly picking up toys for my older children as they would throw them out of the pushchair!
I will be reviewing the Gummee Glove Mitten in a couple of months time so if you liked this review please stick around to see the next one.
I was sent these products in return for an honest review. All views and opinions are my own.
