Around this time, your baby is probably getting teeth.
For some little ones, this is a painless process. For others, they will spend the next several months drooling, fussing and chewing on everything in sight.
This is where the selection of teethers at Brookshire’s comes in handy. Pick up a variety to see which ones your baby prefers to gnaw on to relieve some of their discomfort.
Teethers are made from materials such as silicone for softer versions and plastic for harder varieties. They can come in different textures, too, with ridges, bumps or swirls that baby might like against his tender gums. Some types can be chilled to add some gentle relief to swollen or sore gums. Other varieties vibrate gently when baby applies pressure, which also feels good as baby is cutting teeth.
When choosing a teether, make sure it is phthalate-free and BPA-free, as well as made of only non-toxic materials. Only buy teethers new in packaging, and sterilize before use.
