ex machina

the eric update - day 297: the toothbrush teether ( not by ronco ).

inspired perhaps a bit by the sensorial explorer concept that advocates giving infants "real" objects to play with and realizing that it's never too early to start teaching the benefits of good oral hygiene, we decided to give odin a toothbrush to play with.

it's become one of his favorite toys. it's the perfect size for his little hands and while the bristled end is nice to tickle the gums, the soft rubber end is even better for soothing teething soreness.

and as a sneeky side benefit, he gets familiarized with something that he'll hopefully learn to use properly when the proper time comes.

we did the same thing for my brother we also gave him a sippy cup with handles to play with at dinner it really helped to teach him how to hold the toothbrush.

"it is hard to be brave," said piglet, sniffing slightly, "when you're only a Very Small Animal." rabbit, who had begun to write very busily, looked up and said: "it is because you are a very small animal that you will be Useful in the adventure before us."

[ about ]

this site chronicles the continuing adventures of my son, odin, who was unexpectedly born on the fourth of july at 25 weeks gestation, weighing 1 pound 7 ounces.

he's quite a fighter and you can always send him a postcard to the most current address listed here if you're inspired by his adventures. see the postcard project/google maps mashup to see a map of the postcards.

if you're new, you can browse the archives to catch up. and don't forget to watch a few movies that i made while we were in the neonatal intensive care unit. or if you want the abridged version and you can find a copy, you can read about his adventures in the november 2005 issue of parents magazine.
