Oral Developmental Teether & Rattle Set 

 Ah, teething. It’s hard on parents but even harder for your little one. Some babies start teething as early as 2-3 months old, so it is a good idea to have some teethers on hand for when the signs start showing. Our Oral Developmental Teether & Rattle Set comes with everything your little one will need to soothe their aching gums and your aching heart.

 Made of TPE, our Oral Developmental Teether & Rattle Set are easy for baby to grip, with the petal design gently massaging them far back without choking. They are top-rack dishwasher safe, making them easy to clean. And, being BPA-, phthalate-, PVC-, latex-, lead- free lets you rest assured (when you can!). They are also freezer-safe for that extra layer of relief.

Innobaby Bathin' Smart Silicone Mini Fish Scrub with Suction Cup

Innobaby Bathin' Smart Silicone Mini Fish Scrub with Suction Cup for cradle cap 

 A surprising thing about newborns is they often have flaky skin in the first few weeks of life. This is totally normal and resolves on its own. They also may have cradle cap, which is a common condition in which dry flakes and scales appear on the top of the head. This usually resolves on its own as well, but mild shampoo and brushing can help with the flakes.

 Our Bathin' Smart Silicone Mini Fish Scrub with Suction Cup is perfect for bathing away dry skin and stubborn cradle cap. It features over 3,000 tiny micro-bristles that gently massage and break up dry skin and is gentle enough to use on even the newest of newborns. It’s also perfect for moms as a facial scrub or a nipple soother for those early days of breastfeeding.

 It’s made of 100% silicone, meaning that it will never harbor any stains, smells, or mildew. Cleaning is a breeze as well, just throw it in the dishwasher or boil it for 5 minutes, then shake dry for a nice, deep clean.

If you want the most hygienic, best option for your baby’s bathtime without the hassle of laundry, then this scrub is perfect for you.

2-in-1 Silicone Bottle Brush

It is essential to have a dedicated brush for your little one’s bottles, and our 2-in-1 Silicone Bottle Brush will be the first and only bottle brush you’ll ever need. Its soft and flexible design allows it to reach every corner of every bottle. The integrated tip will flex to a 90-degree angle, so there’s no nook or cranny it won’t gently clean, including bottle nipples.

 Most sponges, dishrags, or other bottle brushes harbor smell and harmful bacteria. This brush is made of 100% silicone meaning it is naturally mold-free and antibacterial. It’s also (you guessed it!) dishwasher safe, and you can pop the top off for a 5-minute boil to sanitize. BPA-, phthalate-, PVC-, and lead-free, there is no other choice for your dedicated bottle brush.
