Teething With Nuby / Mainly Marta :: A Motherhood + Lifestyle Blog



What started as a digital diary to document a newfound journey as a stay at home mom / wife has quickly evolved into my own little corner on the internet where I share all that life brings my way -- the good, the bad, and those "aha!" moments. All with a hint of sarcasm, a dash of truth and bold European wit. Thanks for following along!

Teething With Nuby

Hello lovelies!

I know I said that I'd be more consistent with blogging, but I've literally been sick all month long. I've had pink eye in both eyes (in each eye and then in both) plus a sinus infection / head cold.

On top of all that, Felix has been teething since the end of May and it's been chaotic to say the least. I'm back though, for real this time and have so many things to share with you! One of the things Felix and I have been dealing with together  is the teething process.

If I've learned anything, it's that the teething stage is HARD -- on you, the routine you've set up for your little one, your sleep schedule, and it's especially hard on your baby. At almost 8 months, Felix has had a total of 5 teeth that have cut through and more are on the way! He tends to have two to three teeth that try to cut at the same time, so the pain my little guy is feeling becomes super evident from his super swollen gums and the tears he sheds when looking for relief.

One of the things I've done to deal with the teething woes is trying different kind of teething toys. I've tried multiple brands of teething toys, but the ones that Nuby USA make are the ones that my little one consistently grabs when he's looking for relief.


3 Step Soothing Teether Set: I can honestly say that this set is a life saver. The first teether is easy to identify because it's the softest one in the pack -- in our set it's blue and it has soft bristles that help massage the gums. The unique design of this teether is designed to help massage babies gums all while assisting the eruption process. The second stage is teether in our set is yellow and it is still soft, but a bit firmer. This teether is made to provide stimulus to the lips and tongue in order to help the transition from nursing to chewing. The third stage teether in our set is green and is shaped like a little hand in which the fingers are supposed to help soothe sore gums. I really love this set because like most of Nuby's products, it's BPA free. They grab your little one's attention because of the colors and they really help soothe their gums. Felix will alternate these teether all day long and it makes life so much easier.

Orange Fruity Chew: So I have to say that this little teether is one of my personal favorites because it smells so good. This is a big deal for me because I find that other teether smell of rubber and I've always found that super strange. This teether is not only cute, but it smells of vanilla. It's easy for your little one to hold and the whole teether is super soft. Felix loves nibbling on this all day long. It's BPA free and comes in other fruits too -- pineapple, strawberry, and grape!

Lion Squeezy TeetheNuby does it again with another super adorable teether that will keep your little one busy and happy. It's made of natural and soft rubber and of course it's BPA free. The lion makes a noise when your little one nibbles on it and my little guy thinks that's the funniest thing. I keep this teether near because when the fussiness starts (especially when we're out and traveling), it's a fun distraction & a great chewing toy! 

Nana Nubs Gum Massager: I've mentioned this before, but it's one of our all time favorites! Felix loves nibbling on this -- all day long. It's made from 100% silicone which means that it's super soft and bendy.  He really bites down and hacks at the nana nubs which is great because it soothes / massages his gums. I also really love the bristles that encompass the nana nubs because it serves as a mini toothbrush -- which I call a mom win! I took this with us on a 15 hour road trip last month and Felix started to cut 3 teeth during the way back. This teether helped him so much! 


Upon opening the package, I usually like to sterilize each teether and pacifier that I let Felix nibble on. I take a mug, fill it with water and then I place hot boiling water in the cup. I let the teether sit in the cup for about 5 minutes. When the 5 minutes is done, let the teether sit and air dry for a few mins that way it'll cool off and then it's ready for your baby. I do this sterilizing process whenever I feel like the teether is too "dirty."

Nuby has come out with all natural teether wipes which has made my life so much easier! These wipes smell great and are great to slip in your purse or diaper bag. The pack comes with 48 wipes and it's a literal life saver. Before these wipes, whenever Felix would drop his teething toys and pacifier, I'd be stuck with a dirty toy and a cranky baby. I've never liked using baby wipes to wipe his toys because of the smell, but  I can now feel safe with wiping the toy and not leaving a distinct and unpleasant scent on the toy. These wipes smell so nice and are non-toxic, BPA and alcohol free. I recommend this wipes to all my mom friends! 


You can find all the items that I've listed in this post on:
Amazon.com,  Babies' R' Us, or Walmart's website! 


I am part of the Nuby Parent Blogger Program. 
All that means is that Nuby sometimes sends me products free of charge for my honest review. 
This review is my own personal honest opinion. 
This review was not influenced by the fact that I received these items for free.
