Faith will have to jump in and provide the real name of this device, but it’s probably something like bag-o-binky or binky-bag or sock-with-handle. Simple concept, pop it open, put some kind of food in you don’t think the baby is ready to directly chew on … chunk of steak, green beans, or in this case an apple chunk … and let him gum it to death. An ice cube works pretty darn well for teething, the downside being that it’s frozen water and somehow little if any of the ensuing melt-off makes it INSIDE the baby.
As kids we used to do something like this with old panty hose and fish eggs, back when we were little master fishermen. Well, we didn’t eat them, but the same concept. Tie the eggs in a chunk of nylon hose and you get a sticky, smelly, bag-o-fish eggs that no fish can resist!
Do you think babies like caviar?
