Moonjax Baby Teether
Alexandra F.: This teether is really easy for babies to grip, and just as easy for them to stick in their mouths! The simple shape was purposefully designed to be gag free and choke free, and is made from 100% medical grade silicone. Best of all, it's top-rack dishwasher safe!
Baby Banana Infant Toothbrush
Jennie Utsinger: The Baby Banana Teether introduces baby to a toothbrush while massaging sore gums. The silicone "peel" handles are easy for baby to grasp and soft bristles gently brush new teeth. This has been a favorite for all three of my kids!
Sophie the Giraffe
Jennie Utsinger: The well-known Sophie the Giraffe is beloved by babies. Her body squeaks and the ears, horns, and legs on her flexible rubber body are great for chewing and gripping. My kids love squeaking Sophie even when they aren't teething.
Nuby IcyBite Keys Teether
Stephanie W.: One thing is for certain - babies love car keys! These cool keys are great teething toys for babies, and a great alternative to your babe chewing on your actual set of keys. It's freezable, which will soothe his or her gums, and has lots of different textures to chew on. Funny enough, my baby prefers chewing on the key ring and the sides of the keys (which each have different textures) to the actual keys!
RaZbaby RaZberry Teether
Jennie Utsinger: Babies will love chewing on the nubby bumps on this textured pacifier. Made of 100% food grade silicone, it can also be frozen for additional teething relief.
ZoLi Bunny Teether
Jennie Utsinger: Once your baby is cutting molars, try Zoli's dual nub bunny teether. My youngest loves chewing and carrying this teether around! The textured nubs are great for reaching sore spots in the back of the mouth.
Boon Pulp Silicone Feeder
Kelly R.: Place fruits or veggies into the Boon Pulp's pliable silicone cover and babies can chew and force food through small holes to feed themselves safely. Freezing the food first gives cooling relief to sore gums, and is great for occupying baby during family mealtime. We loved the easy-to-clean design and materials of this feeder, which can go right into the dishwasher.
Green Sprouts Cooling Teether
Jennie Utsinger: Green Sprouts is known for using natural and safe materials for their baby products. The Cooling Teether, made of BPA- and PVC-free plastic, has a textured surface for gumming and is filled with distilled water so that it can be chilled for extra comfort.
Bonbino Baby Teether Rings
Jennie Utsinger: These teether rings come in a package of four, so you can always have one handy for easy access. Babies will love chewing on the multiple ridges and textures and the flexible rings are easy to grab and manipulate. They may look simple, but these were my first son's favorites, hands down. We stashed one of these in every bag.
Munchkin Fresh Food Feeder
Jennie Utsinger: Instead of using a frozen washcloth, how about frozen fruit for your teething baby who has started on baby food? The Munchkin feeder has a small mesh bag into which you can place small pieces of food for your baby to chew on. While you can put any food into the bag, it's especially useful for frozen foods (or milk!) to soothe baby's gums. Our favorites were frozen mango and banana.
Manhattan Toy Winkel
Kelly R.: A gentle-sounding rattle cube surrounded by colorful plastic loops makes this one both a fun toy and an effective teether. My daughter loved it even before she needed it for its teething benefit. The bright colors and easy-to-grasp design make it great to have around as early as the newborn stage.
Hedgehog Grasping Toy
Jennie Utsinger: If you prefer to avoid plastic teethers, there are lots of charming wooden teething toys for babies available. This hedgehog toy is made of non-splintering hard maple, which is naturally resistant to bacteria. These teethers can also be personalized for a sweet baby gift.
Jennie Utsinger: The Nuby teether has a pliable handle for babies to grab. Soft silicone bristles gently massage sore gums and there are multiple textures along the handle for baby to chew. Best of all, this teether comes in a handy carrying case.
Lofca Teething Necklace
Hannah Scott: If you were a fan of jewelry before having a baby, there's a good chance it's disappeared from your wardrobe for awhile. Nothing like tiny fingers with an iron grip to pull on anything within reach! This necklace is actually a cleverly-disguised teething toy for your little one to gnaw on. Accessory for you, toy for baby -- it's a total win-win!
Infantino Vibrating Teether
Stephanie W.: This teether is a must have! It's both softer silicone which is easy to clean that vibrates when your baby chomps down hard enough, and also a harder plastic handle with a little bee to play with that spins. My baby girl loved the soothing vibrations on her gums!
ZoLi Chubby Gummy
Jennie Utsinger: This teether has remained a favorite through 3 kids. Babies love the easy to grab handle and the anti-choke shield prevents them from putting the textured nubs too far back in their mouth.
Jennie Utsinger: It's no surprise that Comotomo, known for their baby bottles, also makes popular teething toys for babies. This silicone teether has a ring and four points with varied textures for chewing, perfect for reaching front teeth and back molars.
