A teething baby is a very unhappy baby. Their poor little teeth are pushing through their gums, causing aching gums and pain. This pain can branch into their little cheeks, faces, jaws, etc. Chewing on certain toys or other items brings some relief to this phase in a baby’s life. However, some items aren’t as good as others when it comes to offering a safe, soothing option.
Here are the top teething toys that we recommend for babies!

All-in-One Teether and Pacifier – When children are teething at a really young age, they may want a pacifier. However, while teething, it can cause turmoil because they’ll want the pacifier but, the pain may cause them to spit it because it’s not soothing them as much as it usually does. This all-in-one fixes that issue by being a teether and pacifier all at once.
