Sophie the giraffe

Sophie the giraffe

Sophie the GiraffeMy favourite toy these days is Sophie the giraffe. Little Man is a big fan too but sometimes when he’s teething badly, I think I am more relieved than he is to see Sophie come out of the toy box. She is far and away the best teething toy around.

This week Little Man seems to be cutting two more top teeth. They keep appearing above the gum line, and then the gums heal up again and they disappear for another day or two before disappearing. My own little vampire baby. The poor thing is suffering a lot as a result. And Sophie is the only teether he likes.

I bought Sophie when he was around four months old. He could barely hold her and I wondered for a few days if she had been a waste of money. But he soon got the hang of using her. And here we are nine months later and I wouldn’t be without her.

I met a friend of mine a few weeks ago, and she had just bought a Sophie the giraffe for her little boy. I got such a shock when I saw the colour difference between the new Sophie and Little Man’s Sophie. Ours is totally faded. Which is to be expected I suppose when she gets washed and chewed so often.

So when someone asks me if I have any advice for dealing with teething, before recommending Bonjela, or Calpol, or anything like that, I always suggest starting with Sophie.
