I don't know about your four-month-old, but mine is still a little shaky in her ability to hold onto toys. But she's ever so pleased when she's able to get things to her mouth.
This "silicone teething mitten" is great because there's a silicone bar inside that she somewhat reflexively grabs onto, plus the "mitt" shape of the toy also helps it stay on her hand.
It's not perfectly easy yet but she has a much higher success rate at getting it to her mouth. And it has some fun nubby things to suck or chew on. So far she can't get the top ones to her mouth but hopefully she'll be able to soon.
And the whole thing is made of silicone so there's no danger of plastic toxicity.
I don't receive anything for my recommendation. Just sharing because I like the product.

PS If you'd like to get your baby sleeping through the night and generally looking happier, set up a free consult and we can have your family sleeping peacefully through the night in two weeks or less, guaranteed.
