Brooklyn, NY — Mom inventor and co-founder of Darlyng & Co, Tara Darnley is still in celebratory mode after landing multiple deals nationwide with Babies “R” Us and several other international distributors to stock her invention – the Yummy Mitt Teething Mitten.

The Yummy Mitt Teething mitten is designed for babies that teeth early and have limited fine motor skills to hold a traditional teether. Tara and her husband, Carl, came up with the idea after futile attempts to find a teether that their two month old could use. Her dexterity was not fully developed at such a young age, they desperately needed something she could easily self-soothe with, and nothing adequately met her needs. She naturally found comfort in chewing on her hands. This instantly sparked the idea of a teething mitten, she would not have to hold and they did not have to worry about any small choking parts. It would be manageable for her small hands to hold, soothe her inflamed gums and kept her hands busy and her happy.

Parents will appreciate that the Yummy Mitt® was designed with safety as a priority, and is BPA Free, CPSC compliant and made of 100% Food Grade Silicone and 100% Cotton. This ergonomically designed teething mitten fits securely over baby’s hand providing instant relief from teething discomfort. It is machine washable for quick and easy cleaning. It is also the world’s first “Glow in the Dark” teething mitten.

Having no business background, Tara was able to Patent and Trademark their invention and launch their product in less than 3 months. The Yummy Mitt instantly grew popular via Social Media and has since gain distributors both Nationwide, selling in 100’s of Babies “R” Us stores and sold International in United Kingdom, Canada, Philippines and more.

“I am grateful for the opportunity to expand our sales channel,” said Tara. “Being able to create innovative and safe products for parents that have the same concerns as I do feels incredible.”

Darlyng and Co. features a line of safe and stylish baby products and apparel and Yummy Mitt is their signature product. Since launching in 2014 the Yummy Mitt teething mitten has been featured on the Steve Harvey’s Talk Show, Oxygen, Pregnancy & Newborn Magazine, Marie Claire and more.

Yummy Mitt has provided comfort and relief for many infants. One mom summed sum the overall impact of the mitten. She wrote: “This is such a lifesaver! My little boy started teething around 3 and a half months and hasn’t got the grasp of teething rings etc. so we thought we’d give this a go and WOW!! He loves wearing it and quite happily munches away saving his tiny little fingers.”

Yummy Mitt Teething Mitten is available in 4 brilliant color variations with prices starting from $9.99. They have since extended their line with Plush Toy, Infant Toothbrush and various other Baby/Kids Toys.
