I had no idea what this was prior to getting pregnant. My friend Elizabeth had this on her blog of Top Ten Newborn Essentials so I added it and almost everything else on her list to my registry. I decided on the giraffe since it was the cutest, a shade of orange, and E used the elephant one.
So far, Sawyer is a big fan. He doesn't use it too often but when he is gassy he likes to suck on something for comfort. He can kind of hold it when he has his hands up to his face and the giraffe helps hold it in place since he's not an expert at keeping things in his mouth yet.
Have I mentioned just how much I LOVE this little man?
