Which teether should I buy? There are so many on the market, but I’m not sure what to look for - We can help!
Welcoming a new member into the family is an exhilarating experience, but as any parent knows, it also comes with a unique set of challenges. One significant milestone in a baby's early life is the teething phase, a time when those first adorable teeth start making their debut.
As your newborn begins this journey between the ages of 4 to ten months, you may find yourself searching for effective ways to soothe their aching gums and alleviate the discomfort associated with teething.
Beyond mere relief, teething toys play a crucial role in your baby's sensory exploration and overall development. Recognising the signs of teething, such as drooling, irritability, red swollen gums, and flushed cheeks, indicate a teething toy may be a good investment.
Babies instinctively reach for objects to chew on during this time not only for pain relief but also as a means of exploring the world around them through their mouths. Teething toys provide a safe and valuable avenue for them to navigate and understand different sensations.
As you explore options for the perfect teething companion, recognising the best materials for teething toys is essential. Wood, known for its hardness and durability, offers a natural option that doesn't easily break. Beechwood, in particular, is an ideal choice with its natural antimicrobial properties and non-splintering nature.
Silicone, a flexible and water-resistant rubber, presents another excellent option. Its temperature-resistant quality allows for safe use in the dishwasher and fridge, while its food-grade status ensures the utmost safety as your baby explores these tactile wonders.
Beyond ensuring safety, incorporating sensory elements into a teether significantly contributes to your baby's overall development. These elements engage their senses, promoting tactile exploration, refining motor skills, and encouraging cognitive development. A well-designed teething toy goes beyond gum relief, providing a holistic developmental experience for your little one during this crucial stage.
The Lamaze Bristle Buddies from Big W are teething toys available in assorted shapes, providing a diverse and engaging experience for your little one.
