Teething is no joke! Many babies will start teething around four to seven months old, and you may even notice their front two bottom teeth pushing through. Teething can be an uncomfortable time for your baby and you. No one likes to see their little one restless and in pain! Luckily, our extensive assortment of colorful teething toys is designed to make it easier on both of you by soothing their sore gums, encouraging proper teeth growth and oral health, and diverting the biting phase.
Our quality non toxic teething toys provide a safe and clean chewing surface, offering comfort and relief when needed most. We have a wide range of teething toys that are gentle on emerging teeth and gums. For babies who often like to gnaw on things, our soft silicone teethers are the best option, as they are soft enough that they won’t hurt your child’s teeth but are strong enough to withstand the constant biting. Our innovative teething mittens will help massage sore gums while preventing your child from biting their hands.
You can never go wrong with the classic pacifier, perfect for calming your child when they get fussy or to use between feedings. Our unique gel-filled IcyBite cooling teethers can even go in the fridge to cool and soothe gums and emerging teeth and stimulate their senses safely.
How do I know if my baby needs a teether?
When your baby is two or three months old, you may notice some signs of teething. Common teething signs include:
- Drooling more than usual.
- Biting and chewing anything and everything, even their own fingers.
- Grumpy and distressed mood.
- Sore and red gums.
- Loss of appetite.
- Rubbing their ears.
Teething can be an uncomfortable time for parents and babies, which is where teething toys come in to help. If you're worried your baby is struggling with their newly developing teeth, teething toys can help soothe their sore gums, allow them to chew on something safely and encourage oral health.
How often do you need to replace a teether?
The good news is teethers don't expire! While germs and bacteria can build up quickly because they are constantly in your child's mouth, as long as they are cleaned and sterilized properly after every use, they can last for at least 1-2 years. If you notice any damage or signs of weakness in the teether, though, or if it has a strange color or scent, we'd recommend you dispose of it and move on to a new one.
How many teethers does a baby need?
How many teethers you buy will depend on your child's needs and preferences. Every child is different, and many like to have teethers of varying shapes, colors, and textures for when they're in the car, stroller, or any room in the house. While silicone teethers are the most popular, some children may prefer the hardness of wood. We'd recommend getting one of each to know which your child likes best. We'd also suggest choosing our IcyBite cooling teethers for warmer days, which can go in the fridge for cool relief on sore gums.
