With all of the news of BPA and other chemicals in our children's toys, bottles, and sippys, I am always on the look out for a safe alternative. I was thrilled when I was contacted to review a Lifefactory product. Lifefactory's motto is safe.simple.smart., and their products are just that.
We were sent their multi-sensory teether to review. I really like that they use minimal packaging with no plastic. It is made of 100% medical grade silicone and is free of phthalates, PVC, BPA, and latex. The different textures promote sensory exploration and the ring shape makes it easy for little hands to hold onto. I was actually a bit surprised that A (pictured below) was able to grab onto it so easily. They usually don't hang onto toys very well or for very long and he was able to chew on the ring for quite a while without losing interest.
This could easily be popped into the fridge or freezer to help soothe sore gums and is also dishwasher safe. I also like that since it's a ring, I can pop it on my wrist while I'm carrying them around and give them something to gum other than my fingers...only beware, you could have drool dripping down your arm in seconds. That never bothers me. :)
Lifefactory also offers some really gorgeous glass water bottles for mom and dad and equally pleasing baby bottles. Both are BPA, phthlate, and PVC free. I'm so excited to have found another great green company!
