The Benefits Of Silicone Teether For Babies

From a psychological point of view, from the birth of a child to the age of 1 is the primary stage of psychosexual development, that is, the "oral period". The oral period generally starts from the birth of the baby until the age of one. During this period, the baby likes to put everything in the mouth. From the perspective of neuroscience, it is because the nerve development of the baby's mouth at this time is stronger than that of the hand. Be quick, so he prefers to use his mouth to explore things, and if the appetite cannot be satisfied, babies are often irritable, crying, drooling, and sometimes biting on anything they can get their hands on.
The main way for infants under one year of age to obtain various desires is through the mouth (ie, sucking, eating, drinking, and eating hands). If parents only use rude or simple methods to stop their children from eating hands during this period, it will cause the children to still eat hands, nails, and feet after the oral period, and grow up to gluttony, smoking, drinking, chatting, Nagging, etc.
In fact, using Silicone Teether can solve this problem.

Does a small teether have a big effect?

Physiologically, teether can massage the baby's gums, relieve various discomforts during teething, and exercise the baby's chewing and biting movements. Psychologically, teether can soothe the baby's irritability and increase the baby's sense of security. Specifically, teether has a great effect on babies in different stages of the oral stage:
  • Phase 1: 2-5 months
Babies need to suck for comfort, and, in addition, the teeth are not officially erupted, but the gums are already uncomfortable. Some soft teethers can soothe your baby's swollen gums before teething.
  • Stage 2: 6 months
When most babies are 6 months old, a pair of central incisors in the lower jaw begin to grow. At this time, the teether can massage the soft central incisors to relieve discomfort. At the same time, it can also massage the gums, and the uneven surface of the gutta-percha also stimulates the baby's brain development.
  • The third stage: the growth of four upper and lower teeth
When the baby grows 2 upper incisors and 2 lower teeth, the teether not only soothes the baby's emotions, but also allows them to experience the feeling of chewing.
  • Stage 4: 1-2 years old
1-2 years old is the period when the baby grows deciduous teeth. At this time, the use of teether can reduce the swelling and pain of the gums caused by the big teeth, help to enhance the development of the teeth, and exercise the chewing ability.
