When your baby starts to show the symptoms of teething—constantly waking up from sleep, diminished appetite, irritability, swollen gums, excessive drooling, gnawing or chewing—concerns arise about alleviating their discomfort are typically the first steps mothers take. Teething times all vary depending on the infant, and can last well over a year. In rare instances, some are even born with them.
There are multiple ways to soothe their sore gums but each baby is different. Cold foods, wet cloths, massaging gums with a clean finger, a small cool spoon, teething biscuits, as well as also teething rings and toys. With teethers, there are plenty of brands and types, but it’s especially important that you know where they come from and what they’re made of.
SILIVO is a brand of silicone products of kitchenware but also for babies. One of their products is aimed for teething babies and it’s their BPA-free 9 Pack Baby Teething Toys. It comes with seven teethers in a variety of fruit shapes, and two finger brushes are included to keep your baby’s new and growing teeth nice and clean.
