Four Teethers That Are As Beneficial As They Are Adorable

As you may or may not know, not all teethers are created equal. Some can actually be pretty dangerous to your child’s health and oral development, making it essential to find teethers that are not only functional but that your baby will love. Keep reading to find out more about oral development toys and our top four picks for teethers that are as beneficial as they are adorable.

How Can Teethers Be Beneficial?

Many teethers contain toxic chemicals such as BPA, have parts that can choke your baby, or are filled with liquid that can be dangerous if ingested. In addition, many teethers don’t do anything for your child’s oral development. In fact, they can hinder it. Prolonged sucking can lead to issues when it comes time to transition to solid foods, cause speech issues, and cause breathing or sleep apnea problems.

Oral development toys bypass all of the scary and dangerous stuff to give you only what you need: adorable teethers that are beneficial for your baby. Some of the benefits of an oral development toy include:

  • Stimulates the development of the mouth
  • Encourages hand-eye coordination
  • Improve oral motors skills
  • Stimulates the tongue, lip, and cheek muscles
  • Aids in nursing, transitioning to solid foods, drinking from cups, and speech development
  • Soothes sore gums with a variety of textures
  • Thoughtful designs prevent choking while also having the ability to reach those back molars
