Bickiepegs Natural Teething Biscuits

A great natural way to ease teething pain and exercise your child’s jaw. These were developed in 1925 by a leading paediatrician, Dr. Harry Campbell, to provide the correct exercise considered vital for baby’s teeth and jaws and chewing skills. The unique biscuit shape is designed to allow baby to bite at both the front and back of the mouth, whilst developing chewing skills essential for moving to solid foods.

These biscuits are baked to a certain hardness so that new teeth can ‘cut’ through the gums, by satisfying the emerging teeth so it has the added bonus of easing the pain of teething!!

Designed for teething specifically, these are not a food product, although you can rest assured that all ingredients are 100% natural, only wheatflour and wheatgerm, no added sugar or salt, no colourings, preservatives or flavourings, dairy free and suitable for Vegetarians and Vegans – so no need to worry if baby does swallow some. Each biscuit comes with a safety ribbon allowing you to attach to baby’s clothing for safety.

This teething biscuit has received endorsements by health professionals, as a great natural product with a good history that has a positive effect on your baby’s teeth, some professionals believe that chewing on the biscuits prior to teething helps teeth grow straighter and with better spacing.

Available in Sainsburys, all Boots Pharmacies and most ASDA Supermarkets, from larger Superdrug stores and all good local pharmacies as well as online at Kiddicare, Ocado and Amazon.

Doidy Cup

Bickiepegs also make the brilliant Doidy Cup (which has almost a 70 year history and is sold by the National Childbirth Trust) with its unique slanting design, created to teach infants to drink from a rim, rather than from a spout or a teated bottle. The Doidy Cup is an open cup with two handles, so easy for a child to hold. The contents are clearly visible when drinking and the sloping design allows a more natural upward and downward motion of baby’s hands and arms (unlike bottles and sippy cups which require forward and backward movement of the head). The Doidy Cup encourages good oral movements and helps to develop chewing skills as the jaw, tongue and mouth muscles are used. It also helps with hand, eye co-ordination.

Health Professionals including Health Visitors, Dietitians, Dental Professionals and Speech Therapists recommend Doidy Cups for easier weaning agreeing that an open cup is the best and most natural way to drink and also to help prevent long term health problems caused by delayed weaning from the bottle. Your child is less likely to overfeed and it allows you to make the move from breast to open cup in one step rather than introducing a teat or spout because it uses the same suckling action.

The fully recyclable cup is manufactured here in the UK, steriliser-safe, dishwasher-safe, available in 17 colours including a solid, pearlised and sparkle finish and does not contain Bisphenol, Phthalates or PVC.

Available from ASDA, Sainsburys, Ocado, John Lewis, JoJoMamanBebe, Kiddicare, National Childbirth Trust (NCT) as well as online from Amazon.
