As a mother of three, teething has become a bit of a trigger word in our house. Much like a hypnotised person, I become a raging monster when it is mentioned, spouting more expletives than usual.Β I have tried every teething gel, powder and toy under the sun, from chewy toys that look like they came from the pet shop to the obligatory Sophie le Giraffe and her expensive pal Fan Fan le Fawn. Teething gels and powders are great but the amount of times I have been bitten or found my nipples coated in some fashion of numbing teething gel has gone beyond counting. Seriously.

Enter Matchstick Monkey teething gel applicator.

Firstly, it is a teething gel and powder applicator, so you can spare those fingers from the dreaded bite by applying a touch of your chosen remedy (I personally recommend ashton & parsons teething granules and Nuby tutti frutti teething gel) to the silicone bristles on the monkey’s head and shove it in your little ones chops. Voila!

Secondly, you can use this as a training toothbrush, brushing your little ones teeth with milk toothpaste. Lastly, this in itself is an easy to use, easy to hold teether. It helps to diminish the pain of teething on its own, so if you run out of gels or powders, you can still use it and leave baby alone to please themselves.

How does your little one cope with teething?

    Ohhh this sounds great! They look awesome, too. I wish these had of been around when my little ones where teething! I have no idea how many times I was bitten applying teething powder or teething gel, literally hundreds of times!

    These look great. I had something similar when Elliw was younger and it was fantastic!

      Absolutely, no more bites!

    This is such a great idea. I know my daughter didn’t cope too well with it and my close friend, their son really had issues.

    Great device for the teething. Thanks for Sharing

    Never heard of this little guy, sounds brilliant! We’ve an amber necklace and use frozen yogurts and Teetha sachets for teething but I’ll be looking into this guy more πŸ™‚

    What a clever idea, I need one of these for baby girl. Teething was the one thing Toby wasn’t too bad with – but maybe I’m just comparing with what a grumpy child he was most of the time though to be fair!!xx

    These sound like a really good idea! They’re so cute too! Fortunately, my two haven’t been too bad with teething and have most of theirs now. But I will suggest this if my new little nephew has issues.

    What a cute matchstick monkey! Luckily little man was ok with teething, I only need to use a teething powder a few times! πŸ™‚

    I’ve never heard of this. Looks great though. Both my girls cut their first teeth at 12 weeks and both coped amazingly with it. X

    This is such a good idea – recommending it to my pregnant friends!

    I hate teething my little man has 4 molars coming through and it took me and help from two other mums to get him to try and take calpol the other day. I think I need to try this with my little man.

    Ah these are so cute! My little brother turns one tomorrow so he’s love one of these – might get him one!

    this is a great idea – it can be such a hassle getting teething gel on their gums when they don’t want you anywhere near! x

    • Harriet April 23, 2016 / 2:35 pm

      It is fab and it really works!

    I have had many bites on my fingers from applying teething gel. All these amazing little gadgets that I have missed.
    It’s actually a really good idea!

    • Harriet April 23, 2016 / 2:36 pm

      It hurts so much doesn’t it?! These are the perfect solution!

    What a great idea. I always wondered if I was putting the teething gel in the right place xx

    Teething is such a hard phase so these sound a fab way to help a little one through! I hope it’s not too rough xx

    I found teething so hard with my twins going through it at the same time. They didn’t cope too well.
