The teether is suitable for babies in the teething stage of 6 months to 2.5 years old. It not only massages the baby's gums, relieves the discomfort of the baby's teething, but also solves the parents' worries about the baby biting things. It can also give the baby As a toy, it really serves multiple purposes.
Now, there are generally two types of teethers on the market: silicone teethers and non-silicone teethers (water-filled teethers, EVA teethers, latex teethers). The advantage of silicone teether is that it can be sterilized at high temperature (-40-220°C), and the material is safer and softer, so as to protect the baby's gums. The disadvantage is that it is difficult for the product to be rich in shape. Therefore, the silicone teethers on the market are generally flat and monotonous. The common feature of non-silicone teether is that it has rich shapes, but it cannot be sterilized by high temperature. The safety level is lower than that of medical grade silicone, and the hardness is higher than that of silicone teether. Like latex teethers, the surface is easy to fade, and the safety level is not as high as that of silicone.
As an imported product, safety must be the first priority. Therefore, the safety of the material is very important. It is best to choose food-grade silicone made of the same material as the pacifier. Because it is very soft, it will not damage the baby's deciduous teeth and immature mucous membranes, it can withstand high temperatures up to 220 degrees Celsius, and it will not deform or precipitate harmful components after high-temperature cooking and sterilization, it is also resistant to low temperatures and will not be cracked by freezing, The most important thing is that it is non-toxic and tasteless, does not contain bisphenol A, and will not have peculiar smells such as plastic.
In addition, it should be noted that usually when the teeth are about to erupt, babies use more teethers, and many babies may drool, or put their little hands in the mouth. At this time, parents can check the baby's mouth to see if there is any whitening or congestion. At the same time, at the stage of drooling, it is necessary to prepare a soft towel for the baby to wipe to avoid wrinkles or redness.
Is it better for babies to eat hands or teethers?
When the baby is three months old, he learns to use his little hand slowly and treats it as his playmate. It is very normal for the baby to put his hand in his mouth during this period, so don't deliberately force the baby to take it out. The baby is not good.
If you don't want to let your baby eat your hands, choose a silicone teether for your baby. Specifically, silicone teethers have a great effect on babies in different stages of oral desire. Baby silicone teethers can relieve the discomfort or pain when babies are teething, and can also effectively replace babies to bite other things. This is safer and more hygienic. Physiologically, the silicone teether can massage the baby's gums, relieve various discomforts during the teething period, and exercise the baby's chewing and biting movements. Psychologically, silicone teethers can soothe the baby's restlessness and increase the baby's sense of security.
The bought teether can be tied with a silicone pacifier chain and hung around the baby's neck, so that the baby can get it at any time and become another new friend of him.

This requires the mother to develop a rich imagination and judge the baby's needs. In short, children who love to eat fingers do not need to quit, nor do they need to find a substitute.

If the child reaches seven months, the molar stick can make it easy for the child to hold and bite by himself. From this perspective, the molar stick is more suitable.
However, the teether needs to be cleaned frequently. Silicone teethers or rubber teethers can generate static electricity and easily absorb dust and bacteria, so they need to be cleaned frequently.
Some teethers are used from three months, some from six months, and some from eight months. Because babies at different stages have different needs for teether. Sometimes it's itching before teething, sometimes it's discomfort when teething, sometimes it's front teeth, sometimes it's fangs, and sometimes it's back teeth. Different baby teethers have different disinfection methods. Some baby teethers will deform after being boiled in water, and some baby teethers can be sterilized by high temperature or disinfection cabinet.
