Hi mamas!
My almost 3 month old son is teething, and I'm looking for your suggestions on good, BPA free teething toys. Because he is so young, he is still working on bringing things to his mouth, but he is getting better every day! What has worked best for you? My daughter is ten, so it's been quite a while since I've dealt with teething. :)

Thanks in advance!

What can I do next?

So What Happened?

Thanks so much everyone! I am trying the frozen washcloth route, and it seems to work for him. He just started grabbing on to blankets and towels, so this is perfect for this stage! I loved looking through all the teething toy recommendations, and I can't wait until he's old enough to get his hands on them and enjoy all that fun stuff! Thanks again!

My fav. store, is The Soft Landing. All of their products are safe and BPA free. I loved the teether sampler they sell!

For my kids, I would dampen a baby washcloth, then freeze it. They liked to chomp on that.

No need to buy 'teething' toys.
Or use a mesh bag.

Your son is teething early!

We have Sophie, and washclothes, and a new one I just got that he really likes : http://www.lifefactory.com/baby/teethers.html
He likes to crawl around w/ it in his mouth-he looks like a bull. :)
I found it at our local health food store.

My DD did the same thing.. She hated any teething toy I tried, except for frozen washclothes and ice cubes in a mesh feeder.

I have a four month old and I am having the same issues. My daughter also does not seem to be able to chew on teething rings, but sucks everything for now. The only thing she has really taken to is the frozen washcloths...she can also hold onto them well. I think i have purchased every bpa free teething ring and she has yet to really take to any. I think she will when she can really gnaw yet for now i think the cloth works the best. We have sophie the giraffe and I do think this will be great down the road. I am going to try the ice in the mesh bag though. Poor little things seem so uncomfortable!



answers from New York on

the washcloth thing was the best. i tied a knot in the corner, it gave it some more substance. also, they had one that vibrated, this is going back a while, but it was shaped like a star and vibrated when they bit it, they liked it a lot. also, there was one that was shaped like a triangle, and they really liked it because they could really get it back there, like the points on the star.

Best for us was definitely a stack of frozen washcloths ready in the freezer. No frills, not very cute but REALLY does the trick!
Just get about 6, wet them, fold into quarters, stack in a Ziplock bag & pop in the freezer. You can take O. out at a time, when needed.
Good luck!
(Better than a bunch of drool covered plastic toys!)

Sophie the Giraffe and Haba teething toys.



answers from Chicago on

Sophie the Giraffe, it's an all natural rubber giraffe designed to delight all of your babies senses through colors, touch, sound (it squeaks), taste, and smell. Plus it's really cute. It's a touch expensive, but very worth it. My son loves to chew on it, it's easy to grasp with lots of places to chew on. You can buy them online, and I've seen them at Babies R Us as well.

very cute, very good rubbery-biteable texture. Matching bracelts/necklaces.



answers from Albuquerque on

Oh! You have to try Sophie the Giraffe. Google her and you'll see... she's made of non-toxic rubber, and is pretty much the hottest teething toy out there. All my friends with babies swear by Sophie. She's great for chewing, but also interesting enough for the babies to play with. Sophie wasn't out when my kids were little; we loved anything made by Haba, most especially the Kringelring.

My son also started teething early and it was difficult at first because he wouldn't bring things to his mouth. The only traditional teething toy that worked for use was this one http://www.amazon.com/Learning-Curve-Massaging-Action-Tee... and he was only marginally interested in it. As he got a little older we mostly used the fresh feeder (little mesh bag with a handle that you can put food into). Cold fruit worked well, but your son is still too young for that. You could maybe try a frozen cube of milk or just water and see if he'll go for it. Good luck
