Re: A teething toy worth purchasing?

sophie is great, and so are wooden teethers. but you might be able to get lucky and find a good quality silicon one for WAY cheaper. just keep your eyes open for them.

Re: A teething toy worth purchasing?

I just started making wooden ring teethers to sell on my etsy shop. I use maple rings from Maine and seal them with an organic olive oil and beeswax sealer.

We also gave Sophie a try too. DD just used her hands and wasn't too fussy.

We loved the Toofeeze:

Not fans of the Sophie here - smells like a dog toy, sounds like a dog toy, spit gets in the squeaker and makes it sound like a walrus dying, plus I've heard alot of choking stories.

I personally love the design of the JChew's smartphone (they have chocolate also). It's a neat concept

My son loves Sophie! His other favorite teethers include his fingers, towels, and an ice cube in a mesh holder.

I know the nontoxic factor is debatable, but we really liked thr life factory sillicon teething ring. Lots of textures.

Another one DD really liked is this one:

She still plays with it occasionally even though she's past teething.

Re: A teething toy worth purchasing?

We got a wooden maple ring with organic bamboo terry cloth circle sewn linked to it, on etsy. That way there's soft and hard for her to choose. There's a few different sorts. I like that she could (if it were in small, non-choking bits) eat it and I wouldn't mind. Anything with paint on it worries me, even if it's 'nontoxic', it's probably not something I would purposely feed her, unless it's beet juice, etc.
