Favorite Thing: Teething Tablets, Mum-Mums, & Veggie Booty

So this month's favorite things may - at first glance - seem unrelated, however I assure you that this is not one of my many moments of randomness. No, I had three favorite things to share, and they are all things to put in your baby's mouth ... or let her put it in her mouth, if you'd rather :)

Hyland's Homeopathic Teething Tablets
I am not sure I completely agree with their advertising slogan, "A safe solution to every problem," but I think these teething tablets do take the edge off when Natalie's gums are wrestling a new tooth. Of course, she only has two teeth at this point, but so far these tablets have seemed to help :)
Here's a little description I found online:
"This is a great natural pain reliever for your little ones. These unique tablets dissolve instantly, and treat teething pain and discomfort with a homeopathic blend of natural substances. no side effects, 100% natural."

Baby Mum-Mum Rice Rusks

Natalie has been eating these things for a few months now, and she continues to chant "mum-mum-mum" each time one appears. She especially enjoys the Vegetable variety - it contains the "powder" of spinach and other delectable veggies. Yum!

I love Mum-Mums because they ...

  • quickly dissolve in the moist mouth of a little one
  • are easy to transport (aka they can be tossed in the diaper bag)
  • make almost no mess - I can even get away with forgetting a bib!

Oh, and Baby Mum-Mums are made in Australia - Good day, Mate - but no I do not order and have them shipped from another continent! When I sent the link to my friend Laurie, she gave me too much credit and thought I was having Natalie's snacks shipped from down under :) Fellow mommies, I get my Mum-Mum supply from the local grocery store, which reminds me, I need to add these to my current shopping list.

Veggie Booty
Don't you just love the name? And the pirate-play-on-words? Well, you know I do, but I am admittedly easy to please! Aaaargh! Bottomline: This booty is delicious!

Being honest ... I am not sure how "nutritional" this snack really is for my NHV, but I do know that she loves it! Again, its ingredient list boasts a variety of vegetables (broccoli, kale, carrot, spinach) in powdered form.

I like to eat it, too, and I figure it must be better than throwing a handful of Cheetos on her tray :)

Oh sure, I get a shout out in your blog only to showcase my dumbass thinking! :) I will forgive you though since A) It is a pleasure just to be nominated! B) You introduced me to the Booty! Benjamin squawks with delight when he sees the bag!
