Saturday, 5 October 2013; One Hundred and Eighty Five Days Old.
We discovered a new, great teething device for Baby Ayla tonight…. A German pretzel.
We were at an Oktoberfest event with a couple of friends and as part of the deal we got to try a range of German foods and beers.
Now that Baby Ayla loves all things digestible she was understandably keen to try the strange new flavours we had on our plates.
But the only food item we decided was “baby safe” enough to let her try was the pretzel, which was really just bread shaped like a pretzel.
Well, Ayla chewed on that pretzel for nearly an hour!
By the end of it, Ayla had bits of German bread pretzel all over her face, clothes and pram but it was worth it to see her little face suck and chew on that pretzel like her life depended on it.
For the past week I’ve been offering Ayla rusk sticks to help with her teething but she’s not been interested at all… One lick and the rusk hits the floor.
But pretzels on the other hand? I think we have a winner. Yah?
PS- here’s a pic of Ayla’s outfit today (we’re doing a weekly photo challenge)… It’s one of my favourites and too cute not to share!
