5 Favorite Teethers

Products Nannies Love

When selecting a Theeing Toy for a baby, you should consider the size and shape to ensure the teething end is small enough to fit into the child’s mouth for proper use, but not so small that entire teether can fit into the child’s mouth. If the teether or attachments are too large, they will not be useful and may only frustrate the baby. If they are too small, they may pose a choking of suffocation hazard.

All babies are different so not all Teethers work for every baby but the babies I have cared for typically preferred soft silicone Teething Toys.

Teether Materials to Look For:

* 100% Food Grade Silicone (seen on many of the teethers on this list)
* 100% Natural Rubber
* 100% Organic Cotton
* Natural, Untreated Wood
* Food Grade Plastics

Teether Materials to Avoid:

* Plastics containing BPA
* PVC/ Vinyl
* Plastics containing Phthalates
* Latex

The American Academy of Pediatrics aligns with FDA warnings to avoid teething jewelry for babies.

Here are my 5 favorite Teethers:

Manhattan Winkel Toy

The Winkel toy is not just a teething toy, it’s a maze of fun twisty tubes that can be tossed, dropped, and squished — and it never breaks, and never lands upside-down! Our testing babies and toddlers had a blast with this, and it kept their attention for far longer than any other teether we tested.

Nuby Teething Mitten

What I like most about Teething Mittens is my Nanny Kid doesn’t throw it on the ground. The soft silicone on top of the mitten has multiple teething surfaces to self-relieve sore gums, and plenty of pleasing textures for little mouths to chew, bite and suck -– keeping sore gums discomfort to a minimum and eases pain. The soft breathable fabric absorbs drool, so you spend less money and time doing the laundry. It is machine washable.

Elefun Teether

If the baby you care for likes firmer Teether this is a good choice. This Teether is easy for babies to grab. It’s made of food grade, soft silicone and can be put in the fridge to cool off to soothe irritated gums. It is easy to clean with warm soapy water or on the top rack of the dishwasher.

Nuby Silicone Teethe-EEZ

The 100 % soft silicone teether is sized perfectly for little hands. The massaging bristles assist in the eruption of teeth by gently massaging baby’s gums. The multiple textures soothe, massage, stimulate and clean baby’s gums. It also comes with a carrying case.

Comotomo Baby Teether

What little one doesn’t love to chomp on their fingers? What I like about the Comotomo Silicone Baby Teether is that the shape mimics the shape of fingers. Comotomo Silicone Baby Teethers are “baby-finger-sized and perfectly designed for their little hands to easily grab and hold. It is safe to clean this Teething Toy in the microwave, boiling water, dishwasher, and sterilizer.
