If ever there was a baby product I was more mystified than by Baby Mum-Mum teething biscuits, I don’t recall it. Baby Mum-Mum is a dissolvable rice cracker teething type thing that a baby can hold, chew, and not choke on.
My guess is they feel great against the parts of the mouth where teeth are popping through, but they go a long way toward training your child to pick things up and eat them to.
Coming in at seven cents per Baby Mum-Mum, tasting like bland air, and containing nothing of substance these things feel like you’re pouring money down your baby’s throat, but that’s wrong. These things are like baby crack.
On a recent airplane trip a couple of packs of Baby Mum-Mum left a solidly happy infant. Well, the Mum-Mums and the chance to destroy an inflight magazine.
The thing though is we found an adult version of these at a local international market, and it’s significantly less expensive for a lot more product. They’re saltier and a little harder, but same great shape. So I really feel the Baby Mum-Mum company is selling at an absurd markup because they’ve got the word “baby” and “organic” in the product name.
One thing’s for sure though, between these rice “rusks” and what I believe to be re-branded Cheerios with the words “baby” and “organic” stamped on them and marked up 900%, someone know’s what they’re doing in baby crack dealership.
The mess the Baby Mum-Mums leave dries pretty quickly, and you’ll end up with a white papery substance to clean up. It’s pretty much the easiest baby food to clean up though as waiting helps the cleanup rather than hindering it.
If I seemed a bit negative here, it’s only due to the pricing. These things are great and if you have a newborn, you’re going to want them around teething age. They’re marvelous mood elevating items that really seem to teach your baby how to handle food. I just feel like they could charge $5 instead of $21 and still make a $2 profit.
