The so-called teether is a toy specifically designed to soothe teething babies, help them fall asleep, and even entertain them to distract them from their sore gums. When does a baby need a teether and what should you focus on when choosing?


Why should you buy a teether and when does your baby need it?

Babies need something to chew on during teething, which usually happens when they are between 4 and 7 months old. Rapidly budding teeth make their gums sore and causes them to swell. Babies then chew on everything they come across to relieve the itching and ache, so giving them a clean teether is a great way to ease the pain and massage the sore gums. Chewing also stimulates drooling, which is a good thing because saliva protects teeth against tooth decay. Since teethers are often combined with rattles, they also serve to help babies explore the world and develop their senses.

How to choose a teether

The simpler teethers are primarily designed for chewing, so they can be washed in the dishwasher. You can also buy a fabric toy with an embedded teether. Since teethers are toys that babies will inevitably and repeatedly put in their mouth, it is absolutely crucial that the toy is safe, has no sharp edges, is made from harmless materials, and is easy for the baby to hold. Also consider your baby’s age when buying - some teethers are suitable even for newborns, others only for babies older than 3 months.
