Benefits of Teething Toys for Babies
Teething can be a difficult time for babies (and parents), as discomfort and pain set into their little gums while their teeth start to come through. However, teething toys can provide some much-needed relief for all involved, and make the entire teething process smoother and easier.
By providing a safe object for babies to chew on, teething toys help soothe sore gums and distract babies from the pain. They also present a sensory experience for babies, as they explore the different textures and shapes of the toys. They also promote oral motor skills and encourage babies to develop healthy chewing habits. A great investment for parents looking to provide their babies with relief and comfort during the teething process.

Do You Put Teethers in the Fridge or Freezer?
Some types of teethers can be placed in the fridge or freezer to provide additional, temporary relief for babies' sore gums, as cold temperatures can help numb gums and reduce inflammation. However, it's important to follow the manufacturer's instructions and ensure that the teether is safe to be chilled before putting it in the fridge or freezer.
It’s also essential to monitor the teether closely and remove it from the fridge or freezer once it's cooled down to prevent it from becoming too solid or acquiring any freezer burn, which could potentially damage the baby's gums. As long as it's done properly and with caution, chilling a teether can be a safe and effective way to provide additional relief for babies.
How to Clean Teethers
To main their safety and effectiveness, teethers need to be properly maintained. The cleaning process will depend on the specific teether, but in general, the following steps can be followed:
- Wash the teether in warm, soapy water using mild dish soap.
- Use a soft-bristled brush to gently scrub any hard-to-reach areas or textured surfaces.
- Rinse the teether thoroughly with clean water to remove any soap residue.
- Allow the teether to air-dry completely before storing it.
Teething toys made of silicone or rubber can also be sterilised by boiling them in hot water for a few minutes. Remember to always check the manufacturer's instructions first to ensure that the teether is safe to be boiled.
How Do I Choose a Teether For My Baby?
When choosing the right teether for your little one, there are a few things to consider:
- Material – Choose a teether made of safe, non-toxic materials. Natural teething toys are great for this.
- Texture – Teethers with different textures will offer added sensory stimulation.
- Size and shape – Opt for a teether that is easy to hold and chew for your baby.
- Age-appropriate – Different teether styles suit different ages. Select one that is appropriate for your baby's developmental stage.
- Ease of cleaning – Teething toys that are easy to clean and sanitise are ideal for busy parents.
Can Babies Sleep With a Teether?
Due to the risk of choking or suffocation, it's not recommended for babies to sleep with a teether. To reduce this risk, it's best to remove the teether from the baby's mouth before they fall asleep. Instead, try gently massaging their gums or giving them a warm bath before bedtime.

Doll is as described, her hair covers the implant a bit much but that is a design thing & I can cut it so that my cochlear implant wearing 2 year old can see that her doll wears a processor too - and doesn’t take it off! Thank you for making these available.
These plates are fantastic! We use them all the time - for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The colours are gorgeous and fun. The quality is high - easy to clean in the dishwasher too.
We love these little soft dolls which we all call "sisters"
Well made and so soft - really beautiful
These are delightful soft dolls (which we have called sisters) and to have the Organic Cotton Doll Carrier adds so much to my granddaughter's (and my) play each weekend. We love them!
I would like to say what wonderful service I received from Alex and Moo and am very happy to have dealt with your company. So far I haven’t seen the erected bike but look forward to seeing my little one enjoying her birthday present.
Products are great and delivery was really quick.
Love these wooden toys, previously bought the ice cream cart and it is still a favourite toy
My two grand children love these cups for their morning smoothies when they come to visit Nanny
Very happy will be ordering more
Interesting and activities useful for curious children
With the original 6 pack, there were two cups slightly smaller and made different around the rims. My daughter in law noticed this. I did send a message but no reply as to why this was being in a set of 6. In addition I brought an extra 2 cups to match the 8 plates I akk K do brought. I’m very happy with these products but really thought someone could have acknowledged my original question as to why 2 cups in a sold set of 6, were obviously made different.
Great quality. Will purchase more again soon
Awesome little dummy's, great quality and a much cuter natural rubber option than the little orange ones you can get. The colours and cute little shapes cut out around the mouth piece are just adorable and suit every outfit. Not to mention bub loves them, the Orthodontic Teat is slightly more exaggerated than a normal one which I think is making it easier for bub to keep in her mouth without dropping. Overall 5 stars - can't beat 0% toxins with 100% cuteness.
Couldn’t be more happy. Free delivery and quick. Trike arrived on time. The crate was a great addition and so was the personalised name plate.
