After Augie had his scary choking incident with his Nuk binkie, we needed to find a solution ASAP! I was recommended several types, and finally found one that works. The three criteria were: 1. Big enough, yet flexible enough that Aug can't get it "stuck" in his mouth. 2. All made from one piece, because in my searches I found out that sometimes the pieces can fall apart and become a serious choking hazard. 3. The shield needs to have curvature and the nipple needs to be indented (not completely round) in order for him to keep it in his mouth.
In other news, Augie has been going teething nuts lately and has taking a strong liking to his Sophie. I think we might have to get several of these, because God forbid we lose it!
