I started babywearing with ErgoBaby‘s soft structured carrier when our first son was about one year old and twenty-plus pounds.

So I didn’t realize how babywearing a newborn / infant would be different. For one, I used the newborn insert for about four months to boost and secure our teeny babe in the carrier.

Now that he’s older and riding without the insert, we are presented with a new issue. Sucking. Chewing. Gnawing… Teething!

Our baby is a world-class drooler. Everything goes in his mouth. Everything. And he isn’t shy about letting big gobs of drool pour all over you!

If you’re shocked at my surprise, it’s because our first son rarely if ever drooled or put things in his mouth! Honest. I didn’t even put bibs on him. Ever!

Thankfully, ErgoBaby makes Teething Pads for their carriers to prevent babies from sucking on the carrier itself (which could damage the carrier, I would imagine!).

The Teething Pads come in regular teething pads or organic teething pads. Both are 100% cotton (except snaps) and come as a set of two (well, I guess that might be obvious! LOL). The pads have three snaps to snug them around each shoulder strap right where baby is likely to teeth on them. Although, my baby somehow likes to crane his head around and suck in that corner where the straps join the carrier – maybe Ergobaby will develop a “full-shield” for babies like mine! :)

Now our baby can explore as babies do, but the ErgoBaby carrier stays dry and protected! Throw your Teething Pads in the laundry for a fresh clean teething surface each time!

Teething pads are a necessity when you are babywearing an infant, and the Ergobaby Teething pads could not be easier to use!

Do you use sucking / teething pads on your baby carrier?

    Yes, I babywear. Moby or ringsling in the beginning. Now, mostly my Beco Gemini (and sometime my RS). I haven’t use any teething pads, but my LO definitely likes to chew on the straps. If these fit the Beco straps, I’ll use them. Otherwise, my friend has an Ergo and her baby is currently teething, so she could probably use them.

    Just started using the Ergo and I LOVE it! I’m rather tall, and have quickly-growing babies, and other carriers were just…awkward. He’s not teething yet, but it is a brilliant idea! I do also like the idea of maybe something that goes down around the back, maybe padded so the top of the carrier doesn’t dig into his little head if he’s looking around.
