Why Do Babies Need Teethers?


Why Do Babies Need Teethers?

Teething is a major milestone development for babies from the first few months of age through to their first year, and it can often result in crankiness and frustration. As a parent, this process is what you have been anxiously waiting for and you are perhaps unsure of the symptoms to spot. Your baby’s development phase is unique to one another and therefore the teething symptoms may differ, but we are here to guide and support you through that process.


The noticeable symptoms of teething can include:

  • Excessive drooling
  • Chewing on items
  • Loss of appetite
  • Sore and swollen gums
  • Irritability
  • Trouble sleeping


Reasons Why Babies Use Teethers

As part of a child’s development, they begin to explore their surroundings and as a result, put things into their mouths at a young age. Your baby becomes more aware of what they can do with their mouths and so it will not come as a surprise when they begin to bite their favorite toys, blanket or even nibble on your fingers! The movement created when teething also helps progresses your baby’s own learning speech sounds and eventually allow them to say their first words – Mama, Dada, you name it!

Teething is a natural and important part for your baby to first understand their world, therefore, it is vital to find a safe teething solution.


Choosing Teethers For Your Babies

Teethers can be made from various materials and into multiple shapes and sizes and we have some tips to keep your baby safe when choosing one.

  • Your baby will constantly be chewing on their teether therefore it is important to avoid harmful chemicals
  • Your chosen teether should be a compatible size to your child, and not one that is too big or too small
  • Do not use toys that are not meant to be teethers as this could become a choking hazard
  • Do not buy used teethers
