Sensory Bamboo Teething Bib

bib

This sensory teething bib has been designed, like all of our products with baby in mind. We aim to put baby first and not focus on developing products that aim to make life easier for parents.

We wanted to design a bib that not only provided some pain relief but also had some developmental aspects too.

We achieved this by adding little ridges and circles to the silicone edging – adding a sensory element to the bib, supporting cognitive development while baby teeths.

So whats different?

Babies tend to drool excessively when they are teething and so this is the perfect solution – a bib and teether in one!

  • Silicone Edge- This food grade, BPA free silicone V edging provides soothing pain relief while those little teeth try to break through the gums and with the additional little ridges and textures it provides a sensory feeling for cognitive development.
  • The bib is stylish with a bandana shape and is also reversible.
  • The Fabric

It wasn’t until we needed to source a fabric for our new premium range and started doing some research that we began to learn about the benefits and qualities of bamboo fabric. We wanted something that was kind to baby’s skin and environmentally friendly. Bamboo is the fastest growing plant on the planet and it is even recommended by doctors for children, especially those with any skin irritation or sensitivity.

As bamboo is 60% more absorbent than cotton it makes the perfect material for a bib for teething babies. As you know babies drool so much more while teething. This material also helps to reduce the teething rash and it is antibacterial.

We began with 2 colours and recently we have recently added some new bib designs as shown here.

We will be launching a brand new design (something a little different) very soon also.

Why is my baby not crawling?

Crawling Develops

Many parenting books and guides say that babies should be crawling by the time they are 7 months old however, if your baby is not crawling there is no need to panic as we have found that babies today are actually beginning to crawl a little later. Our Easy Grip Crawl collections go right up to 24months.

There are many reasons why your baby may not be crawling, maybe they are just not ready yet or it could be due to factors in their environment. They could be finding it very difficult to get their body co-ordinated on the slippery floor surfaces in your homes. You must remember that babies are just finding out what parts belong to them and that they can control their own movement. When placed on a slippery floor this can cause frustration and many babies give up trying to crawl.

Slippery surfaces can put babies off crawling.

Slippery surfaces can put babies off crawling

Wooden, tiled or laminate floors present a huge challenge to your baby as they offer no traction, babies slip and slide resulting in bumped heads and this can put babies off learning to crawl. For babies this is the same as us trying to walk on ice.

It is important that you do all you can to help encourage the all-important cross crawl. Read more about how you can encourage crawling here.

Of course there could be other physiological or medical factors that are preventing your baby from crawling, if you are concerned about your childs development please speak with your doctor or public health nurse.

Top 5 Modern Hazards In Your Home For Your Crawling Baby

IMG_9935

As you have probably have found out, a crawling baby is highly inquisitive and unpredictable, meaning that we must always be prepared for the unexpected and try to child proof our homes the best we can.

Little ones can find literally hundreds of ways to get hurt and it is important to remember that bumps and bruises are all a part of being a child. However there are some things we can do to try and avoid serious injuries to little crawlers.

The two most common hazards for babies at home are falls and kitchen related burns. Blind cords and sharp corners e.g on coffee tables also present a danger for curious babies, but these are well documented and brought to parents attention.  However modern day hazards are increasingly causing injury to little ones in the home.

Here we highlight the top five modern hazards to little curious crawlers in the home:

 

1)  Appliance Cords

Appliance cords present a strangulation hazard and curious little ones could also end up pulling heavy and dangerous objects such as laptops and kitchen equipment down on top of them. Try to keep appliances high and well out of the reach of children. When not in use store in a safe place.

2)  Hair Straighteners/ Curlers

Hair straighteners can cause burns up to 10 minutes after they have been turned off.  It is a good idea to place straighteners into heat resistant bags and kept out of reach and out of sight from inquisitive little eyes. In 2009-2010 in NI almost 10% of thermal injuries to children admitted to hospital came from hair straighteners.

3)  Gym Equipment

Today fit is the new skinny and many of us now are lucky enough to have a gym or ‘get fit’ equipment in our homes. Usually these are in spaces which are easily accessed by children and crawlers. Each year in the USA thousands of children are admitted to hospital for treadmill related injuries, mostly burns and accidents related to the cords.

4) Dishwasher

In most homes dishwashers are easily accessed as they are low to the ground. Many people have a habit of walking around the kitchen and leaving the dishwasher open. Keep in mind how attractive this would be to a little one. It is suggested that you should close your dishwasher door securely once finished packing it. This will keep little ones away from potential hazards within the main chamber of the machine.

Here at CCHQ would also recommend that you store any washing tablets / powder / detergent for you machines in a cabinet high and well out of the reach of your little one. As with all cleaning fluids and chemicals in your home.

5)  Slippery Floors

Falls and slipping are some of the main reasons for children being admitted to hospitals. Over the last 10 – 15 years there has been an increase in the use of slippery floor such as tiles, wooden and laminate in homes. These provide no grip for youngsters running through the home. It is suggested that one way to minimise falls is to use non-slip mats under rugs  and loose floor coverings etc.  Did you know what slippery floors also discourage your baby from the cross crawl? Their knees slip from under them as they attempt to get into the position for the cross crawl causing frustration and fear in some instances. By using our recommended Easy Grip Crawl Suits with our specially devised grip technology on the knees and soles of the feet can prevent slipping and sliding for crawling babies.

Top tip:

When your little one has mastered tummy time and is ready to crawl it is a good idea to get down on the floor yourself and crawl around. 🙂 By doing this you can see all the hazards and little temptations from their level and so be better prepared.

 

**these are not the only modern hazards in your home for your inquisitive baby these are only our Top 5 suggestions. Please refer to manufacturers guidelines and other professional bodies that educate on how to keep your baby safe in your home.

Facebook Christmas Market

fb market 6

Creeper Crawlers were very lucky to be invited to the Facebook HQ in Dublin yesterday to participate in their staff Christmas Market.

We were very excited and so we got ready and headed down early to get set up and to also have a little look around their new offices. In the reception we were met with these inspirational signs which we thought we should share with you as it is always a good idea to take advantage of free advice- especially from a company like Facebook.

Throughout, there was a great feeling of the culture that these companies are famous for, from the happy and diverse workforce to the huge (free) canteen.  The diversity of the staff was highlighted by the different flags that we could see on the windows of their internal offices and the emphasis placed on staff morale was very clear.

At the market there was a fantastic Christmassy atmosphere with people dressed up and lots of festive music and treats.

Throughout the day Facebook staff came along and were able to browse the different products available and do some of their Christmas shopping.  We were very lucky to participate along with brands such as, Molton Brown, The Irish Fairy Door Company, The Elf on the Shelf, benefit and Kiehls. We also found time to get some of our own shopping done. 🙂

There was huge interest in our Crawl Suits with people buying gifts for their children and nieces and nephews. We were delighted to hear of all the new little Creeper Crawlers there would be across the world with our crawl suits being sent off to places as far as Zimbabwe and Brazil.

We had a great day and it was such an experience to see inside a company of this stature. We also got lots of ideas for when we up-scale the Creeper Crawlers office 😉
