Your Guide to Natural Teething Toys


Has your baby been out of sorts lately? Have the coos and smiles been replaced by crying? Chances are they may have started teething. The first few waves of teething can be especially challenging for babies, happening between the age of 3 to 7 months. Some do start earlier or later as it depends on genetics so don’t stress if they come on a bit earlier or later; the key thing to know is how to help your bub get through the teething process. That’s where natural teething toys come into play.

What do natural teething toys do?

Baby teething toys are a toy that your bub can safely chew on to soothe their sore gums. Having something to bite and chew on helps the baby’s teeth break through the gum and provides some comfort for the baby as the pressure helps alleviate the pain.  The teeth cutting in process and tender gums are often soothed by a light pressure that biting on a teething toy can bring.

As soon as you start to notice your baby drooling more, mouthing their fingers or trying to chew on anything they can get their hands on, then chances are they have started teething. It’s probably about time that you started to look for a baby teething toy to provide some comfort at this point, or ideally have them ready in advance. 

What are the Best Natural Teething Toys for Babies?

With so many baby teethers out in the marketplace it’s hard to know which one is the best. It might be a good idea to experiment with a couple of different ones until you find the one that suits your baby. Some babies prefer softer materials, and some prefer more ridged shapes. It is therefore important to find teething toys that offer the right amount of pressure to ease discomfort.

It is also very important to ensure that the baby teething toy is safe for use. Look for one that your baby will be able to hold and safely put in their mouth. A teething toy that is too big or too small could be a safety hazard, so make sure there are no small parts that can come loose as this will be a choking hazard.

What are the Benefits of Natural Baby Teethers?

They contain no toxic chemicals.

One of the primary benefits of opting for wooden teething rings over plastic or other popular baby teethers is the fact that wooden teethers are non-toxic and free from harmful leads, metals, BPA, chemicals or phthalates. You want your children to be as safe as possible by providing them with the safes and best products. The safety factor of these amazing wooden teething toys is a major reason why natural teething toys are rising in popularity.

Durable, so you won’t need to constant replace them a lot.

Wood is far more durable that plastics – which many baby teething toys are made from. This means that your wooden teething ring will far outlast any plastic or cheap teether you could purchase for your little one. The durability of these wooden teething rings makes them last longer, which in turn creates less waste from otherwise disposable products. The durability factor of these wooden teething rings brings us to our next benefit – sustainability.

Good for baby, good for the planet.

Most wooden teething rings for babies are made with beech wood. Beech wood is uniquely sustainable in that it can be grown in renewable and managed forests. This means that more wood can be grown to replace the trees that have been used and cut down!

Naturally antibacterial

Did you know this one? Wood actually has natural antimicrobial properties and is therefore naturally antibacterial. How cool is that?! As parents, we are constantly worried about germs around our babies so this aspect of wooden teething rings is a huge plus! Not only is it one less thing to worry about, baby teethers are constantly in babies’ mouths so this factor is especially important for a product like this one.

So there you have it. It’s easy to see there are some wonderful benefits to wooden teething rings. They are both robust and environmentally sustainable. In addition, they are the safest bet for your baby for soothing those sore teething gums.
