Flushed cheeks? Cascading dribble? A little extra ‘tude than usual? If you answered yes to these, it’s quite likely that your baby is teething, and a baby teether is about to become your saving grace.

Baby teething toys are silicone, natural rubber or wooden rings designed for babies to bite on, helping to cut the gums and allow their baby teeth to grow through. Some teethers even come with sensory elements to further stimulate inquisitive little minds, mouths and hands.
