Teething is a trial - there are no two ways about it. But there's lots of support available. Our Teething Time collection will help you get through the tears and fractiousness and out to the other side: the land of pearly white smiles and all the fun of the next stage: biting!
“Adam & Eve had many advantages, but the principal one was that they escaped teething.”
They will be producing what seems like gallons of dribble, so you want a bib that looks good enough to wear all day. Liewood Andrea Bibs are perfect: made from 100% organic cotton muslin, with a cotton terry back, they're soft on their skin, and come in muted, versatile, colours - so they look great with all their outfits. With two in the pack, you've always got a spare to change into.
"As it’s 100% cotton it feels soft and absorbs spills well. It did a very good job at protecting against dribble rash too!"
Sophie, Parent Tester
An amber necklace
It's believed that Baltic Amber, when warmed by your baby's skin, releases a natural succinic acid that helps with teething pain. This Nibbling Amber Teething Necklace is a great gift idea for any little one who's approaching teething, or in the thick of it.
"As it’s a necklace it needs to be taken off at night for safety reasons, so just make sure you bring it into your routine to put it on first thing."
Katie, Parent Tester
“Watching teething babies is like watching over a thermonuclear reactor. It is best done in shifts, by well-rested people.”
They're ideal for wiping dribble, milk or food from their faces. Whether you're popping one over your shoulder for burping sessions, or letting them have one as a comfort blanket, they're simple but versatile. This handy OYOY Muslin Square 3 Pack is made from soft organic cotton.
"We love these trendy tonal muslins. One of them has a stylish pattern on as well."
Teethers come in so many shapes and sizes but a particular fave of ours is the Matchstick Monkey Teether range. When a product has been developed by a mum, you know serious thinking's gone into it. A plaything and teether in one, you can put teething gel on the back of its bobbly little head, to reach their painful back teeth & gums more easily. A clever bit of thinking designed to save your fingers from those ridiculously sharp baby teeth!
"It has wide arms for them to improve their motor-skills, while relieving their teething pain."
A first toothbrush
The Brush-Baby My First Brush and Teether Set includes an easy to use teether for them and a first brush for you. Perfect for teaching good habits, the soft silicone bristles mimic a toothbrush feel, while acting as a teether. Its handle is easy for them to grip, with a flower guard, making it safe for them to use themselves.
"It's a perfect set for you & them, great for taking care of their teeth together."
This may surprise you
Parents usually see their baby's first tooth between 4 and 6 months. However, they may get their first as early as 3 months, while a late bloomer may not see that initial pearly white until 14 months.
I in every 3,000 babies is born with a tooth.
