By Reviewer Summer:
You know how you have one brand you love for something. When it came to baby needs, especially my pacifiers, it was MAM! It hadn’t started out that way, but our pediatrician actually recommended MAM and we’ve used their products now for almost 5 years between both of my sons.
The reason my pediatrician recommended MAM pacifiers is because they have a ball shape on the end instead of a triangle look:
The ball is easier to hold in whereas the triangle is easy to accidently pushed out with the tongue. This is the problem we were having when our first son was young. Since he accepted the MAM pacifier he was hooked. Pacifiers are great for reducing your baby’s risk of SIDS [Sudden Infant Death Syndrome]; doctors predict that pacifiers have this effect because of the consciousness needed to maintain a comforting suck on the pacifier throughout sleep.
But MAM isn’t just pacifiers! We got to sample MAM anti-colic bottles and nipples, oral care wash clothes, toothbrushes, and teether thanks to the PR firm Child’s Play Communication and their house parties. Here is why I love these other MAM products:
· MAM Anti-Colic Bottles – No only do they help your baby take in less air causing less gas which can equal pain and colic, these bottles are EASY to sterilize which means less work for you! The MAM anti-colic bottles have a screw off bottom which can be filled with water, then you place the nipple on top, add the bottle cylinder, and the ring with plastic cap; microwave for 3 minutes. These are great for all babies, not just babies with colic.
· MAM Oral Care Rabbit Wash Cloth – Besides being SUPER cute! These bunnies will begin your infant’s oral care. My pediatrician and pediatric dentist told me to use a wash cloth on my sons’ teeth when they were first erupting. I wish I had this for my children, though my time for this product has past. Your fingers are completely covered for sterilely and proper cleaning the entire tooth removing plaque with its texture. You can get this rabbit washcloth in pink and blue.
· MAM Training Toothbrush – If you have a child you may already know this but as a first time parent I didn’t, you need a small toothbrush for baby/toddler’s small mouth. Yeah that sounds logical, but if only I knew it. MAM has one more up on you though; their training toothbrush offers nice grips for you and a gum massager on the other end for your child. You can also get a MAM tooth brush set for only $6. Your baby will need fluoride though you should not brush your child’s teeth with fluoride until they can spit; consult your pediatric dentist. A note on fluoride, most city water supplies have fluoride included for the better of the population; if you live on well water you do not have fluoride added.
· MAM Teether – I have a MAM’s Bite & Brush Teether and that’s exactly what it sounds like … MAM has made a teether soft for chewing with new teeth, erupting teeth, swollen gums, and pre-teething gums. The brush bite also offers texture for cleaning new teeth. If you stick this teeth (which is solid plastic, not filled with water or gel) in the freezer your child will love to gum and brush with this teether to sooth any oral pain.
