Tips for Helping a Baby Teething


At what Age do Babies start to Need Baby Teether’s? 

Have you noticed your baby getting a bit irritable? Maybe they are crying a bit more and not so much the bundle of joy they were a few days ago. Chances are they may have started teething. Babies start to teeth between the age of 4 to 7 months, but there is a great variability in the timing of teething. Some babies start sooner and some start later- it is all down to genes and heredity so don’t worry if they haven’t started yet- just enjoy the peace and quite while it lasts!

What do Baby Teether’s do?

Baby teether’s help by providing a product that a baby can safely chew on. Chewing and biting are all part of the teeth cutting in process and tender gums are often soothed by a light pressure that biting on a teething toy can bring.

As soon as you start to notice your baby drooling more, mouthing their fingers or trying to chew on anything they can get their hands on, then chances are they have started teething. It's probably about time that you started to look for a baby teether to provide some comfort at this point, or ideally have them ready in advance.  

What are the Best Teether’s for Babies?

With so many baby teether's out in the market place its hard to know which one is the best. It might be  a good idea to experiment with a couple of different ones until you find the one that suits your baby. Some babies prefer softer materials and some prefer more ridged shapes. It is therefore important to find teething toys that offer the right amount of pressure to ease discomfort. 

It is also very important to ensure that the baby teether is safe for use. Look for one that your baby will be able to hold and safely put in their mouth. A baby teether that is too big or too small could be a safety hazard, so make sure there are no small parts that can come loose as this will be a choking hazard.
