Even months before Alec was born, other mothers were telling me I simply had to get a Sophie. And of course, since about a week, Alec and his Sophie are pretty much inseperable.
Sophie is the super-popular, now almost fifty year-old teether, made from all-natural rubber and hand-painted in non-toxic paint from French Vulli. Even before Alec was using his Sophie, he had Sophie’s smaller, softer buddy, Chan. One warning regarding Chan, though, is that this little toy is very noisy. You can hardly touch it without it squeaking, something that I learned the hard way when I had forgotten it on our bed and was trying to quietlyget under the covers without waking little Alec sleeping in his crib beside our bed.
