    Default fleece for teething dolls?

    I was wondering if you guys could help me out. I'm wondering, would fleece be a bad idea to use for a teething doll? I have some left over fleece from a few things I made for a soon to be here in a couple months baby and just thought a teething doll would be something that a baby would definitely like.

    If you think that a teething doll is not a good idea, what do you think I can make with pink and gray fleece fabric? lol I know, not much of a color choice ha.

    Any ideas would be appreciated.

    Um, have you tried chewing on it? Hehe, I would think that it would feel weird, being fuzzy and all. I never heard of a teething doll. My daughter used those liquid filled things that you could refrigerate or freeze. Plastic, could be washed clean. The dolls would be kinda soggy and icky, wouldn't they?

    Before you speak,

    H - is it HELPFUL?
    I - is it INSPIRING?
    N - is it NECESSARY?
    K - is it KIND?

    One of my granddaughters had a teething doll. I couldn't begin to tell you what type fabric it was but to me it felt like a light weight flannel - combination with a double knit like you find in t-shirts. The doll was a simple square of fabric, formed over something round (may have been polyester stuffing as it felt squishy - yet it dried quickly after being in the mouth). The ends of the squares had big double knots in them for the arms and legs. It did go through a couple kids because it was easily washed and sterilized . . . however one of the latter ones decided it would look good in the middle of a mud pie - hence the demise of the teething doll.

    I agree with Karen - I don't think the fleece would work well. However, what about finding the outline of a simple teddy bear and making one? The pink and grey would be great. Or, sew six squares together to come up with a play cube. You could put a bell or something in the middle to make a rattle toy. I'm still thinking . . .


    (don't anyone make any comments about smelling smoke because I'm thinking, okay?)
    Sometimes, when there's a raging fire,
    it's best not to try to put it out with gasoline.

    We would never do anything like that Sandy! (sniff sniff ) Nope don't smell a thing! I like the sounds of a teething doll. I've only seen the kind that Karen is talking about. What if you used the fabric Sandy talked about, and make a doll that can be stuffed with the cooling thing Karen talked of? You could make a couple and when one gets yucky, it could be pulled off to wash, and a clean one could be restuffed with the cooling thing. Just a thought. Hugs, Jan L.

    How about some small "taggie" blankies? Just small squares, whatever size, and then on the edges you put a bunch of ribbon loops for baby to play with Babies love them! They can be small enough to just hold and play with or big enough to cover up in. Here's an example in case you're not familiar:



    One thing I will suggest, double stitch over all of the ribbons because you don't want baby to pull one out and swallow it! Anything that fits in a baby's mouth will end up in there, and if it's small enough to be swallowed once it gets in there, it's gone! lol

    Thanks for the links ladies. I think I decided to make a pink teddy bear. I'm just trying to find an easy pattern, and this should be something interesting.

    I always had those hard plastic teethers for my kids. Never heard of a teething doll...but I think babies use anything they can get in their hands. Fingers, blankets, toys....I think my daughter was using the nipple of the bottle because, when she got a couple of teeth, she kept biting holes in them.
