What do you moms use for teethers? Have you found anything that works well? We have a few store-bought teethers at home and they just don't fit well in baby's mouth. I have no idea why they make them the way they do. So, we have been using cold waschlothes, but that is so messy! Suggestions?

I found this teether - "Vulli Sophie the Giraffe Teether" looks like it would fit well in the mouth, but it is pricey!

What can I do next?

The best thing we have found is just a mesh feeder with frozen bananas or ice cubes.

My son has taken a liking to Sophie the giraffe. He can grab and chew on it easily. It is expensive for what it is though. Feels like a squeaky $5 dog toy if you ask me.... lol

-Frozen washclothes
-Frozen mini bagels- messy, but they literally disolve into "mush"
-My clean fingers
-His fingers
-"Taggie" blankets- fleece that has ribbons sewn like tags all the way around

The One Step Ahead catalogue had quite a few... even some that were shaped like fingers!

My dd loved cloth too instead of those plastic things. Sophie is okay--my son does like it--but our favorite is the soft rattle from Jelly Kitten (jelly cat for babies), but it's also expensive. We liked the Razberry teether too, when she was 6 months or so.

Still the frozen washcloths were the thing we went too most often. I didn't figure it out for awhile, but wetting just the corner of a baby washcloth and sticking a couple in a ziplock in the freezer helped with the cold and the mess.

Good luck!

what my children and now my grandchildren like best is a regular washcloth with an ice cube in it, I always secured it in with a small rubber band tight around the rag, they also used this rag/ice cube on cuts and bruised, always made them feel a lot better.
