After several months of sleepless nights, you finally feel like you’re in a routine with your baby. He's content by day and you’ve gotten into a good rhythm of how to navigate those nighttime feeds. Then suddenly your baby seems irritable, his wake-ups become more frequent, and you have a hard time consoling him. That’s when you realize you’ve hit the infamous teething stage.
Teething can start as early as 3 months old - before you ever even see actual signs of any tooth. Teething toys are one of the best ways to provide comfort for your baby when he’s feeling the pain associated with teething. The problem is that almost every teether available requires your baby to hold it. And we know what that means - constant drops to the floor. Yuck.
Both wearable and soothing for sore baby gums, Tasty Tie offers the perfect solution.
What is the Tasty Tie?
Wondering how Tasty Tie is different from every other baby teether you’ve seen out there? Let’s find out.
So, what is Tasty Tie exactly?
Tasty Tie is a wearable teether that securely attaches to the collar of your baby’s clothing. In the shape of a tie, it’s the stylish teething solution that will stay fastened so that your baby can have constant teething comfort whenever he needs it.
Tasty Tie creator and owner, Erin Pate, saw a need for a teether that she wouldn’t have to be constantly picking up off the ground and washing. She didn’t have the patience for this endless cycle and neither did her baby boy (cue all the tears while he waited to get his precious teether back on those sore gums!). She also found that there were not as many baby boy accessory options on the market than there were for girls.
This sent her on a hunt for an attachable teether that was both functional and fashionable (because let’s be real - we love playing dress-up with our babies). Frustrated when she couldn’t find what she needed, she decided to create one herself.
Here is Erin’s story of how she started Tasty Tie:
“The inspiration (for Tasty Tie) came from my son who went through a terrible teething stage. He was putting anything and everything into his mouth and was constantly fussy as he tried to soothe his sore gums. Wanting to help him cope, I would buy every teething toy I could find, and they’d all just fall right to the ground, which made him even more irritable. As any mom knows, your child’s frustrations become your frustrations, and I was desperate for a solution. So, I came up with the idea of a teething tie. I made one for him to try, and he was instantly obsessed. From that moment, I knew this would be something that would make babies and parents very happy and would be money well spent.”
We know you have a lot of choices when it comes to the best gear for your little one, so here’s a preview into what you can expect when you choose Tasty Tie.
Why Parents Need Tasty Tie for Their Baby Boy
Teethers are one of those baby products you’re going to want to have at the ready before your baby pops his first tooth.
The discomfort of teething can begin weeks before you even see any signs of a tooth, and the pain associated with teething will arise without notice. Drooling, chewing on everything in sight and lots of irritability and crankiness are the tell-tale signs.
Teething can be a tough time for parents to navigate as it’s never a good feeling to see your baby in pain. We know you’d do anything to help them feel better.
According to the Cleveland Clinic, one of the best remedies to comfort a teething baby is with an approved teether.
Not only does Tasty Tie fit into that category, but it also offers much more than your typical teether.
As a multi-FUNctional product, the tie offers 2 different safe surfaces for endless gnawing while also providing entertainment through that crinkle sound that we know babies can’t get enough of. Not to mention it’s the perfect apparel accessory. And because it attaches to your baby's collar, it will save you many trips to the sink since it won't be dropped to the floor like other teethers.
Notable features of the Tasty Tie include:
- Soothes sore gums due to teething
- Clips onto any baby outfit safely & securely
- Offers stimulating crinkle sounds
- Easy to wash - just throw it in the washing machine or even the dishwasher
- Finally - a baby boy accessory to jazz up any outfit
- Calms your baby wherever you are - home, church, the car, etc.
- Comes in 12 darling patterns
- Matching daddy/son ties - including the matching “Daddy and Me” ties featuring Daddy and Baby Shark!
- Both stylish and fun, this teether makes a great gift
Additionally, we know that babies sometimes do best with the combination of pressure and coolness against those tender gums. A Tasty Tie pulled straight from the refrigerator will be exactly what they need.
We aren’t the only ones who think Tasty Tie is the perfect teething accessory for your baby boy. You can find multiple reviews on our website from happy customers including this one from Meredith, a mom from Pittsburgh:
This is such a fun and practical item - a genius idea! Well made and adorable, my son took to it immediately. I will be buying this as a gift for everyone I know who has a boy from here on out (and probably a few more for my son)!
Additionally, Tasty Tie is the proud recipient of several awards. It's received the National Product Parenting Award, New Product Cribsie Award, Mom’s Choice Award, and the National Parenting Center Award.
It's not hard to see why this product is so widely recommended. A safe product that provides necessary comfort for babies while making parenting life easier? Yes, please!
You Can Be Confident that Tasty Tie is Safe
We know the first thought that pops into your head when you see a new baby product that you’re considering purchasing for your new baby, and that is, “But is it safe?”
As parents ourselves, we are right there with you.
Safety is a top priority at Tasty Tie. When Erin Pate created the attachable teething toy, not only did she want to make a practical item that could offer teething babies comfort, she put safety at the forefront when creating the design.
The Tasty Tie design and materials have been rigorously tested to ensure they meet or exceed all federal safety requirements.
Additional safety features include:
- Made with a food-grade silicone tip
- soft, breathable, water-resistant fabric
- Free from BPA, phthalates, and latex
- Tested by a 3rd party authorized lab to ensure it meets or exceeds all federal safety requirements including:
- Consumer Product Safety Commission standards
- American Society for Testing and Materials regulations
- Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act
As a reminder, you always want to be sure that your baby’s Tasty Tie is clean before they put it in their mouth.
When you attach that darling tie to the shirt of the tiny boy you love more than anything, you can be confident that it’s a 100% safe item for him.
Many parents also wonder at what age to start giving their baby teething toys.
The Tasty Tie teether is safe to give babies starting at 3 months of age. Though most babies won’t pop that first tooth until they’re at least 4 months old, you’ll want to be prepared at their very first sign of discomfort. Which is why we recommend having at least one Tasty Tie by 3 months old.
Tasty Tie is intended for use until the age of 18 months. But if your older baby still loves it, there’s no reason to not let him keep using it!
