Avoid Dropped Teethers with the Munch Mitt {review}

I was provided with the following product(s) to facilitate my review. As always, all opinions expressed here are entirely my own.

Munch Mitt (review at Titus 2 Homemaker)

I’ve always found it a particular challenge when my babies start teething before about 5 months, because they aren’t able to hold things very well.  This means they can’t hang onto teething toys, and usually end up chewing on their own hands and/or arms.  I’ve been saying for several babies that someone ought to make a wearable teething ring.  Well, now someone has!

It isn’t a “ring,” but the Munch Mitt is a wearable teether — wearable by baby, not mom.  A silicone teething edge is firmly affixed to a fabric mitten, so it can be strapped onto baby’s hand for chewing.  No more dropped teethers.  No more chewed-up arms.

All About the Munch Mitt

The Munch Mitt comes in a variety of colors, from a neutral grey, to light pastels, to brights like the one shown here.  (The brights are my personal favorites, as you could probably guess from the fact that they coordinate with my site redesign!)  The fabric mitten has a velcro strap to affix it to the child’s hand, and can be flipped over for use on either the left or the right.  The chewing area is made of food-grade silicone.

It comes with a little drawstring carrying case so the Munch Mitt doesn’t get all linty in your diaper bag.  One side of this bag is mesh so you aren’t growing mildew or something in your Munch Mitt.  (ew)  And the Mitt is machine washable!

There are two minor things about this I wish were different.  (Well, one I wish were different and one where just another option would be nice.)  The fabric is kind of a “shiny”-feeling fabric.  Consequently, drool doesn’t really soak into it; it runs down it.  This means chewing on the Mitt still results in a lot of drool dripping off the baby’s hands.  It would be nice if it were at least a little absorbent — especially since it’s washable — so it would also help prevent the drool drippage.

Also, the fabric portion of the Mitt itself crinkles.  My baby loves this, and it’s not a problem, in general, but it does keep the Munch Mitt from being a good option for church or other quiet events.  I’d love to have a crinkle-free option for church, concerts, etc.

What We Think of It

Apart from the minor details noted above, I really like this.  It’s newly-added to the list of my favorite things.  Ironically, my daughter hates having it attached to her hand.  Occasionally she’ll tolerate it (as seen in our pictures), but the first time we put it on her she shook her hand to try to get it off, like you might if you were trying to fling mashed potatoes off of your hand.  And this is generally more-or-less her response.

BUT…she still likes the Munch Mitt a lot; she just doesn’t like to wear it.  She loves the crinkly sound, and seems to find it easy to hold onto.  Because so much of it is cloth, it scrunches into and conforms to her hands more easily than solid toys.  And we still have the option to strap it on if we’re out at the grocery store or something where dropping it would be gross.
