Around the 6 month mark, it’s typically time to offer your baby a teether as the teething process begins. We used the following products off and on for an entire year while we worked through all of the tooth eruptions and they lasted through it all! I have not included any refrigerated teethers as our child did not like the cold sensation on his gums. For cold teethers, I received a tip from another mom to put a wet face cloth in the fridge and let them bite away!
Green Sprouts iPlay Cornstarch Hand Teether Rattle and Key Ring Teether
The Green Sprouts Hand Teether Rattle and Key Ring Teether were big hits with our child when he first started teething. The products are made of EcolGreen bio-Polymer (NatureWorks®), a cornstarch-based eco-friendly plastic and are BPA, PVC, Nitrosamine and phthalate free. The soft parts are made of silicone. They are made in China so if that is a concern, you may want to check out the other recommended product lines. Check out the Green Sprouts Hand Teether Rattle on Amazon.com!
Our Green House Organic Teething Rattle
The Our Green House teething rattle is made of hand knit organic cotton and has a natural wood ring coated with beeswax. This product is made in the Philippines and is adorable!
Vulli Sophie the Giraffe Teether
Vulli’s Sophie the Giraffe teether has been a favorite in our house. Our child really took to this teether as he got older (1 year+) but we did offer it when his teething started around 6 months. This teether is made in France and is phthalate and BPA free. It is made of 100% natural rubber and food paint. Check out the Vulli Sophie the Giraffe Teether on Amazon.com!
In addition to Sophie, Vulli also has a Chan Pie Gnon teether which is also top rated.
