2. Teething remedies

Silicone teethers

Silicone teether are highly regarded because they are made of non-toxic material of the highest standard. They are also hygienic, hypoallergenic, and resistant to bacteria, making them safe for your little bub to put in their mouths.

The Razbaby Raz-Berry teether is a soft silicone teether made with Berry Bumps that are specially designed with multiple textures to soothe your baby's sore gums. It is constructed of one single piece which makes cleaning a breeze for the parents and keeps germs from forming inside the teether. Its loop-shaped handle is also perfect for little ones to grab onto, which can help them develop their motor skills.

Teething mittens

Bubs often put their hands in their mouths when they begin to teethe and because of this, their hands can become dry, chapped or even cause a rash to appear. Teething mittens can absorb drool and provide a chewy texture for the bub to chew on. They are especially great for the younger bubs that can’t quite hold a teething toy yet.

Our Bubify teething mitten is made with 100% food grade silicone and offers 3 points of sensory features with 3 different textures to ensure extra relief and comfort for your bub. This includes a flat and soft texture for their gums, dots for extra relief when they are biting down on the mitten, and a line texture that adds a different feeling of relief. Our teething mitten also has a soft glove that causes a crinkling sound texture which will keep your bub engaged and distracted, allowing you to catch a breather and relax.

Teething Bibs

Our Bubify Teething Bib’s are made with high quality lightweight cotton to ensure super absorbency and hold a premium teether to relieve your bub's sore gums.

3. Teething blankets

Blankets can act as a comfort tool to help bubs relieve anxiety during emotionally distressing times as it can provide a constant reminder of the feeling of security that parents provide. Teething blankets offer the same sense of comfort, but it also has the added bonus of being able to physically relieve your bub’s pain as well.

The blanket also has a universal attachment loop that can be paired with our range of medical grade silicone Jollypop pacifiers, which are used across Australian hospitals.

Teething toys

Teething toys are great for pain relief and for play! They are great to keep your bub happy and occupied and allow them to explore with their other senses. 

Chilled fruits and vegetables

If you love to try natural remedies to help your little one through their teething journey, and you are starting to introduce them to solids (6+ months), then using chilled fruits and vegetables is for you, especially when used in conjunction with a food feeder.

The Razbaby Silicone Fresh Food Feeder is the perfect way to safely relief your bub’s teething pains without the risk of them choking on bigger chunks of food. It is engineered to allow only the tiniest food pieces to go through to prevent choking and this method means they will be getting vitamins and nutrients alongside relieving their teething pain. It is also made of highly durable silicone material which means that this product will last you a long while before you have to make a new purchase!

Sophie the Giraffe, Fan Fan the Fawn and Al'Thir the Camel are well-loved teethers that are made from renewable, flexible, natural rubber materials and non-toxic paint. The toy stimulates each of baby's senses through sight, hearing, taste, and touch. Its design consists of contrasting colours to provide visual stimulation and a squeaker to stimulate hearing and so that your bub can familiarise themselves with various animals!
