A Teether for Your Baby
Have you ever wondered why babies like to put toys in their mouths so much? It’s certainly not because they enjoy the taste of plastic. When a baby is teething, the soft pressure of a toy in their gums helps them feel better.
Remember that every baby is different and not all of them start teething at the same time. Wait patiently and indulge them letting them chew on their favorite toy once in a while only if you are certain that it’s clean and that it’s not a choking hazard.
Some toys are created for babies to chew when they are teething, but babies are hard to please and you’ll probably have to search for one that the little rugrat likes. Meanwhile, your baby will continue to chew on random things making you go crazy.
Why Do Babies Like to Put Things in Their Mouths?
There are actually many reasons, and one of them is because they are teething. Having soft and cold objects pressed against their gums helps them ease the discomfort and pain that teething brings. Babies are naturally curious and they will spend many hours discovering themselves. Having an object in their mouth and chewing them will make them aware that they have a mouth, lips, tongue, and gums. That way they will learn how to control their movements and how different things feel inside their mouth.
Don’t be alarmed if your baby raptor starts chewing on things all around the house, simply try to control what they chew on, keep things clean, and keep dangerous objects out of their reach.

Usually, baby toys are safe for them to chew. This means that they aren’t made with toxic materials, they aren’t choking hazards, and they don’t break after weeks of heavy usage. However, there are some chewing toys that have different textures, are easy to clean and have colorful designs that will catch the attention of your baby.
Paints usually found in toys for older kids can be toxic, but baby toys are usually made with non-toxic materials. The policies about the materials used to make baby toys have changed over the years. Try to get new teethers instead of reusing one from the past.

Keeping the Teethers Clean
It’s hard to keep track of all the things that your baby puts in his mouth. However, if you see that they have a favorite toy or teether you should clean it often to avoid germs from spreading. Usually, water and soap would be enough, but there’s no harm on being extra careful and having the teether sanitized every now and then. You can also check the boxing or wrapping of the teether to check if it can be cleaned in your dishwasher.
