Over the decades Bickiepegs have supplied their natural teething biscuits to royal babies in both the UK and Europe. Today Bickiepegs, the only baby teething brand with royal heritage, marks the moment when Archie’s parents can expect him to start teething, with advice to all parents with babies of a similar age on how to navigate this tricky stage with natural solutions.
The continued desire for natural teething solutions is backed up by recent research which reveals that 60% of parents would rather recommend an effective natural teething remedy to a friend or relative than one that contains drug-based ingredients. Natural teething solutions are proving to be as popular today as ever – with Bickiepegs research showing that there is a passion for natural teething solutions amongst the younger age group of parents. Indeed, 53% of 18-24 year old parents say they are concerned by drug-based ingredients listed on the pack.
These young mothers are setting a trend for coming generations. Indeed, TOWIE celebrity, Amy Childs is a big fan of Bickiepegs and she recently commented “These are amazing! I absolutely LOVE them! I’m a really, really big fan – they’re absolutely brilliant!” As an unsponsored aficionado, this is fantastic to hear – since her comments come after Bickiepegs had been recommended to her by friends and family, she said.
It’s important to keep your baby’s teeth and gums clean during teething. Dr Jemma Hook aka The Mummy Dentist on Instagram, answers the question about whether parents should continue toothbrushing when a baby is teething, commenting “Ideally yes! Brushing will remove plaque and food particles both of which could cause additional inflammation if left on the teeth or gums.” Bickiepegs Finger Toothbrush & Gum Massager is an ideal first toothbrush designed to keep early teeth clean and sore gums soothed. Dr Jemma Hook continues, “The advice from the British Society of Paediatric Dentistry UK is to take your baby for a dental check up before their first birthday.”
As far back as the 1930s, Bickiepegs sent their teething biscuits to royal nurseries and even received hand-written thank you letters. Then through the 1950s and 1960s, as the royal family grew, Bickiepegs continued to send their natural teething biscuits as gifts to the royal nurseries offering help to princes and princesses through the often troublesome teething period (see attached letters in Editors Notes).
Chris Blincoe, Director at Bickiepegs Healthcare said “We are so proud that our heritage has been built over the last 90 years, and that our history includes offering support to royal babies through the tricky teething phase. Our teething biscuits have been tried and tested by British babies for generations and it is lovely to know that we continue to help babies teethe naturally, often hearing of grandparents recommending our products!”
Teething Biscuits, designed in 1925 by leading paediatrician Dr Harry Campbell
provide both a hard surface on which to cut teeth and supply a baby with the
vital exercise required for the development of their jaws, jaw muscles and
gums. Bickiepegs satisfy emerging teeth and help ease the pain associated
with teething – naturally.
