Babies….the most precious gifts. That sweet baby smell, the first smile, first giggles. I go gaga over babies, always stopping random people in shopping malls going “awwwww”; the parents giving me a once over to make sure I’m all there. But really, babies are the keys to making any lousy day the best day. That is until they start teething. Those same sweet babies turn into crying, screaming little golum’s, reminiscent of Lord of The Rings. Parents wondering whose really in pain, them or the baby.
Teething is the hardest part of baby life, and it can make mommy’s life stressful too. Take my 10 month old niece for instance. Poor little thing was teething so badly the other night that she was completely inconsolable. My sister and brother in law left an utter wreck, even their pet dog was rattled by it, and for good reason, their baby was in pain. Think about it - if you or I have toothache or a sore throat, we’re able to say where the pain is and do something about it. A baby can’t, and thats what makes the teething process so lousy. When I heard that my niece had taken to chewing on my sister’s designer handbag just to ease her gums, I thought there had to be something on the market to help her pain and to save my sister’s couture - and boy was I right.
Introducing, Chew On This! Chew On This is the most unique and only-thing-like-it company in SA that makes these kind of teething toys. Started by a brilliant young mom on a mission, Chew On This is your answer to vibrant, creative and sensory toys that moms and babies will love. These are eco friendly, silicone teethers that come in an array of shapes, colours, and designs.
So how did Chew On This come about? Tyla Roberts saw first hand the pain her little one was going through teething; the sleepless nights and inconsolable crying. She tried all the conventional and passed down from generation methods . Nothing helped. After noticing that he was biting down on everything and anything he could to receive the pain, Tyla set out on a mission to find the perfect teether.She tried everything - gel filled teethers, teething Mittens, teething pacifiers; you name it. But she still wasn’t sold, and more importantly, neither was her little boy. Then she found a silicone teething necklace, unfortunately the range they had consisted of only two different designs and well they weren't the prettiest looking necklaces and she really didn't want to wear them ANYWHERE, but being the SUPER-MOM that she is, she took one for the team and wore these not so pretty pieces of jewelry, because they were ACTUALLY working! Success! A calm little boy and a relieved mom. But eventually the necklaces wore down and into the bin they went.
The search was on again. 3 weeks later, while on holiday, Tyla finally found THE ideal silicone teether. The colours - bright, and the variety vast, yet still affordable. These toys weren’t only for teething but aided sensory development as well, double win. Back in SA, Tyla couldn't believe that this product was not on the market, and so she created and developed her own brand that sells a working teething relief product, proven to provide relief, is affordable, comes in a wide variety of shapes and colours, and assists with sensory development.
The Chew On This range is incredible. From tortoises, unicorns and trains; to koala bears, ice cream cones and cars. We are obsessed with this range. They also offer wooden teething toys and teething bibs in different colours and patterns. Chew on This even have a Christmas Gift Box on offer, filled with Christmas trees, stockings and gingerbread men teethers inside. Its the perfect gift for any mom this Christmas with a teething baby. You can also buy the Christmas themed teethers separately on the website, they make the perfect stocking stuffers! We cannot get enough of their online store. Its just so fun and colorful!

Mom’s everywhere will be singing their praises, babies will be soothed and be able to play at the same time, and thank goodness my niece can now chew away on an adorable pink Koala Bear, instead of the straps of my sisters handbag. Mom’s sanity saved. Babies sanity saved. Designer Couture saved. All thanks to Chew on This.
