When your baby is teething, you will know about it. However, do you want to know the best part? All babies teeth, that’s a fact. As you can imagine having a tooth makes its way through the gum can be extremely painful.
Although there is little you can do, what you can do is get your baby a teething toy, and to help you choose here are our top 10 baby teething toys.
We know it’s not a complete solution but what I will say is that it helps, a lot.
1. Sophie The Giraffe
Let’s start with facts, all babies are going to teeth at some point there’s no getting around that and when they start which is different for every child, you will for sure know about it.
I can’t remember much about what happens myself. However, I’m guessing by having a tooth make its way through your gums is going to be quite painful.
All other symptoms such as temperatures, rashes etc… Are often taken care of with over the counter medicines, but not so much for the the gums.
With that in mind, this is why teething toys are so popular and can help alleviate the pain on the gums
So first on the list is Sophie, the Giraffe. The ring version seems to be the most popular, but personally the original is just as good!
2. Gertie the Goose
Gertie the great goose, will be just as good to your babies sore gums as their development.
