Anyone use her for teething? What do you think? My LO has another tooth almost thru and I think he would love it.

Yes, we love Sophie.

I have one of Sophie's friends - the one whose head looks like a breast. My little guy loves chewing on it, but I'm kinda wishing I'd just gotten sophie, so that my guy doesn't learn to chew on my nipples.

That's hilarious! (Well, getting chewed is definately not funny, but ykwim.)

We love Sophie over here, too! Especially her hooves and knobby head.

Another Sophie fan here!

We've had Sophie since 3 months old and love it! I even splurged on a "Sophie saver" off etsy.com (as if Sophie wasn't enough of a splurge!).

So here's my question, yes our little friend loves his giraffe, but it's made of "natural rubber" isn't that latex? The same thing LOTS of people are allergic to?
We've taken latex out of health care to reduce life time exposure and the allergies that come with it. Why is it good for our LOs to chew on "natural rubber"
Help me out, cuz I'd love to think it's a good thing, but it doesn't make sense to me.

My little one loves sophie. Her legs are very easy for tiny hands to hold onto.

I sort of wondered about that, too. I don't think any of us are allergic to latex but I'd hate for someone with a severe allergy to have a problem...

another vote for sophie! ds is still loving her at 12mo and has since around 5mo

I googled it and "natural rubber" is latex, same as the gloves. seems pretty crazy to suck and chew on since it is a cumulative exposure type problem.

My babe is totally uninterested in Sophie. She prefers wooden teething toys, and I do too. Those soak up tons of drool.

i never "got" the sophie thing. i thought she was just a really cute toy until i found out how much she cost.

so what's the draw???

We have a Sophie and DS loves it. I was skeptical at first but he can nearly always get some satisfactory part of Sophie in his mouth and that makes him pretty happy.

my daughter just met sophie at a friend's this weekend and immediately fell in love. it was ridiculous... she wanted nothing else... not the phone, not the dog, not a water glass. i got her one the next day and just about died when i saw the price sticker. she's still in love so it was worth it. i have no idea what the draw is..... it's a little nuts.

DD has a Sophie. She loves it. It is easily her favorite toy, and my 'go to toy' for the car!
post #18 of 53
i didn't get sophie bc of cost....i got dd a razzberry teether instead, she likes that a lot!

Ds got Sophie for Xmas from my mom, and still loves it! It's one of his favorites. Although, I've found the best 'toy' for teething is a mesh feeder (nuby has a bpa free one) with an ice cube in it. It gets messy but ds loves it and I think it really helps his gums. I've tried frozen foods, but ds still doesn't like any flavor besides mommy's milk.... But Sophie is a great 'out and about' teething toy!

I do have a latex allergy. A pretty rotten one. I handle sophie in a drool cloth when I have to. And I have to wash my hands after that, because if they end p in my mouth or eyes, there will be trouble.

Found out the hard way
