Disclosure: I was provided a Cornelius Teething Toothbrush to facilitate this review. All opinions are 100% my own.
February is National Children’s Dental Health Month, so let’s talk teething and children’s dental hygiene!
There are certain fundamental truths of parenting, one of which is ‘teething sucks’. There’s nothing more sad than seeing your little one in pain and not being able to explain why. Luckily, there are some great products on the market designed to ease your little one’s aching gums and help make the process of teething a little easier. I, like my children, am drawn to things that are cute and colorful, so naturally when the need arose I gravitated towards the Baby Banana collection of teethers and training toothbrushes. After much deliberation, we settled on the Cornelius Teething Toothbrush. Designed for kiddos ages 3 to 12 months, Cornelius’ nubby corn-like surface is ideal for emerging teeth and the husk handles make it easy for little hands to grasp. The husk handles are also great for attaching to a toy strap so it doesn’t get lost or dirty when on the go. It can even be kept in the freezer for extra soothing cooling sensations. So far, its been a massive hit with the little ones, and honestly, they just look so darn cute holding a little corn cob! Little Liam found Cornelius incredibly soothing, and very fun to chew on.
In addition to providing relief from painful teething, Cornelius (and all the Baby Banana products) help get babies and younger kiddos accustomed to the concept of teeth brushing. It’s never too early to start educating your children about dental hygiene, and Cornelius is an excellent way to clean those itty bitty little baby teeth!
Cornelius is made from food grade silicone and is BPA, lead and phthalate free. It’s easy to wash and dishwasher safe, which obviously pushes it to the top of my favorite things list.
