Made Just for You by Lisa Carrier Teething Pads [Review]

We continue our series of eco-friendly baby teething products and toys. The focus here is on organic and/or natural products sold on Etsy. Babies are going to put these products in their mouth, so buying products made from natural and organic fabrics is a great investment. Those of us who wear our babies in carriers know that babies love to chew and suck on those straps! Once babies have teeth, chewing on the straps can rip the fabric and weaken the integrity of the strap. Made Just for You by Lisa features Carrier Teething Pads and Padded Strap Covers that will be lifesavers for all straps.

If you have read my other posts in this eco-friendly teething products series, you will know that some baby accessories are required. I am glad to say that there have been a lot of products that we have avoided purchasing for the baby. We either do without or find a way to use what we already have at home. Carrier teething pads are affordable and reusable. I love that I can reuse the teething pads with the strollers and the car seat straps. Teething pads are a great way to keep drool off fabrics and parts that cannot be easily washed or should not be submerged in water (ex: car seat straps).

Lisa also features padded strap covers that are a little bit slimmer than the carrier teething pads. The padded strap covers will fit stroller and car seat straps a little bit tighter. Although, I had no trouble using the carrier teething pads with the Bob jogging stroller and with the car seat. On the car seat, I moved them higher, over the shoulder pads, so they were closer to the baby's mouth.

There are several different styles of carrier teething pads available on Etsy, depending on what your baby prefers to chew on. My baby likes to chew on fabrics that have a little bit of texture to them (ex: ERGObaby carrier straps) and anything with a little rubber feel to it (ex: Sophie the Giraffe). Made Just for You by Lisa Carrier Teething Pads have an adorable print on one side and a soft minky dot on the reserve side. The baby did not have a preference toward one side or the other. I love that the carrier teething pads help to catch drool!

Carrier Teething Pads are a requirement if you ever wear your baby in a soft structured carrier. Lisa also sells a variety of luxury items for moms and for baby, like reusable zippered snack bags and toy tether/clips to make any mom's life easier. Lisa welcomes custom orders. Also, check out her selection of pacifier/Sophie clips at Made Just for You by Lisa.

Disclosure: I received one or more of the products mentioned for free to facilitate this review. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers. All opinions are my own.
