Toys to Help your Tot Through Teething
Teething is hard on everybody. Your child is uncomfortable, and since misery loves company, chances are you aren’t the happiest parent either. While many remedies are passed down from the older generations, the answer is usually as simple as teething toys! Teething toys apply counter pressure on your child’s gums that helps to relieve the pain associated with erupting teeth. Teething toys come in all shapes and sizes, so you can be sure that you will find the perfect tooth toy for your new bundle of joy. Here are a few tips for choosing your kiddo’s new toy:
- A teething toy with liquid - because chewing on icy cold things numb the gums, many teething toys can be put in the refrigerator.
- A teething toy that vibrates - there are many teething toys that vibrate when your child bites down on them. The vibration can distract your child from the pain they feel.
- A teething toy that holds fresh fruit - if chewing on a plastic ring doesn’t do it for your little guy or girl you can purchase mesh rings that will hold cold pieces of fruit.
