Baby teething toys can be constructed from rubber or plastic but having organic teething toys made of wood that are round in shape to encourage easy gripping is not only better for the environment by encouraging sustainability, but just better for your baby in general by being free of nasty additives such as BPA you might find in plastics. Having organic baby comforters will benefit your baby because the purely organic 100% muslin cotton material plays well against your baby's skin and makes for a more pleasant experience than the synthetic counterparts you may find elsewhere.

 

Wooden Rattles

 

Baby teething toys can come in different shapes, colours, textures and sizes all depending on a child's interests. One of the handiest toys to give your little one is our line of baby rattle toys. Our wooden rattles have a beautiful sleek natural design that will promote hand-eye coordination in your baby, teaching them to differentiate between shapes, sizes, and textures along the way and engaging all the senses.

 

Because our mission, besides providing for your baby, is reducing the carbon footprint humans leave on the planet, we ensure that all our baby rattle toys are made exclusively from crack-resistant Beechwood. Beechwood is an obvious green choice because the wood itself is extremely durable and perfect for longevity. The wooden rattle can be maintained using food-safe oil such as coconut oil to restore and keep from cracking. This ensures that your child’s wooden rattle will last a very long time, reducing the waste that would have been made by constantly having to replace the synthetic counterparts. 

 

In Europe in the German forests, beech is one of the most important deciduous trees that accounts for a large section of the tree population. Every grain that goes into our wooden rattles will make every one of them unique due to the beechwoods excellent elastic properties, firm and durable frame, and environmental balance just as good as native wood. 

 

The natural nature of the beechwood in our baby rattle toys is perfect for your little one to explore the different textures and easy to chew on and relieve those sore gums. If you take a look at the wooden rattles we sell, you’ll be able to see why they are some of the most sustainable baby rattle toys on the market.

Baby Comforter FAQs

What is a baby teether?


Teething is an essential process in every newborn's development that involves your newborns first set of teeth coming through their gums. From their first few months of age through to their first year, your babies will often be teething. Scanning along the gumline or being on the lookout for drooling is a good way to tell if your baby is beginning the teething process. A popular method of placating your newborn during this teething sequence is the introduction of teethers into their daily activity. Quality teethers are toys that babies can chew on as their new teeth are developing, the light pressure on their tender gums can provide them with a world of relief. Teethers can be constructed from all types of materials; rubber, silicone, plastic or wood. All teethers can come in different shapes, colours, textures and sizes all depending on a child's interests. Many teethers are round in shape to encourage easy gripping. To learn more about the baby teether, or what types of teethers our store has to offer, do not hesitate to contact the staff at New Additions; we are more than happy to help you out with our expertise!




Are teethers good for babies?


The teething procedure isn’t exactly what you would call a pleasant experience for a baby - which is why teethers can help relieve the intense sensation of teething. This not only uplifts your little one's overall mood but can result in some developmental perks. That’s right, teethers don’t just provide relief to emerging teeth! A signature aspect of child development is that babies will try and put things into their mouths. The constant mouthing and munching will encourage your baby to move their tongue around inside their mouth, creating awareness that they have a mouth and making them wonder what they can use it for. Primarily, these mouth motions lay down the brickwork needed for learning how to transform those incomprehensible grunts, babbles, and yells into sophisticated speech. With the help of teethers, your baby will be uttering their first ‘mama’ and ‘dada’ in no time!

How do you use a teether for a baby?


Babies love to chew and gnaw on everything they find as their teeth come through their delicate gums. Your best bet to ensure that they can safely have something to bite on is to introduce the teether into their daily routine once they reach the appropriate age.

Once you incorporate one of our venerable teethers into their daily routine the teether will become their preferred method of teething and they will insist on only using the teether you approved for teething. This is because you can leave an impressionable imprint on them that subconsciously tells them to only use the teether for chewing. Teething with only the approved teether will become second nature to them! This is great as it discourages them from attempting to put unsavoury and more dangerous objects in their mouth to chew on.

The New Additions line of teethers are a mix of perfect textures and feels for teething babies, the silicone helps massage and soothe their sore gums, whilst the hardness of the wood helps relieve pressure and help budding teeth pop through, all in the service of relieving discomfort. To learn more about the baby teether, what benefits it can bring to your baby, and how to successfully introduce a teether to your baby, do not hesitate to contact the staff at New Additions; we are more than happy to help you out with our expertise!




When should I let my baby use a teether?


By all accounts, experts are in unison of agreement that a teether should ideally be introduced to your baby at around 4 to 6 months of age. Primarily as teethers are here to help with emerging teeth coming through the gums, you want to be on the lookout for the first signs of teeth coming through.

Your baby would have started the teething process by at least 6 months of age, but it’s always important to be on the lookout for signs of teething as you don’t want them to develop any nasty habits because you were unprepared. Every baby is different and sometimes teeth can emerge with no pain so look out for:

- Is their gum sore and red where the tooth is coming through? - Do they have a mild temperature of 38C? - Do they have flushed cheeks? - Do they have a rash on their face? - Are they rubbing their ears? - Are they dribbling more than usual? - Are they gnawing and chewing on things a lot? - Are they more fretful than usual? - Are they having restless periods of sleep?

If your baby is showing any of these symptoms it’s best to start investing in a teether so you can be prepared for when the teething process begins. Our New Additions teethers are a budding mixture of the perfect textures and the ideal grip size that allows your baby to both play and safely have something to chew on.

Who invented the teether?


Teething has been such a longstanding conundrum to combat in the history of medicine that even the ancient Greek Father of Medicine Hippocrates wrote about it. Up until the late 19th century, teething was cited as a leading cause of infantile problems by various quack sciences that trumpeted various syrups and remedies.

It wasn’t until the modern ingenuity of the early 1900s that the simple craftsmanship of the teether emerged to offer a solution to this age-old affliction. Thanks to that little eureka moment, the teething industry flourished, and we now can offer this safe solution to teething.

New Addition teethers are guaranteed to keep your little one happy while their budding teeth are coming through their delicate gums, and all that whining and crying, as well as their plentiful endeavours to gnaw on anything and everything, is put to rest.

What age can a baby have a comforter?


Most experts within the industry would recommend that you can introduce a comforter to your baby from the age of 6 months and upwards. Regardless of this, you should still allow your baby to sleep in a clear cot for the first 12 months of your baby's life. Using the comforter to lull them into sleep and then removing it once they have dozed off. This is purely for safety reasons to prevent any accidents that can happen when your baby is sleeping.

You should also stick to just 1 washable comforter (always having a spare) and give it to your little one at each nap and bedtime. A comforter can also be a great support when trying to wean your newborn off their dummy.

How do you clean a wooden rattle?


At New Additions to clean your wooden rattle we recommend oiling your wooden rattle with a natural oil such as coconut oil to stop the beechwood from drying out. You want to use a gentle cleanser on wooden rattles so anything from a simple vinegar and water solution, a mild, environmentally friendly dish soap, and some warm water, or your favourite non-toxic multi-purpose cleaner, diluted with water, should do the trick.

Develop a game plan for cleaning and sanitizing rattles to reduce the spreading of germs, especially if there are other babies around who might want to put the toy in their mouth. Keep sanitizing wipes on you in case the toy falls on the floor and wash the rattles regularly. Many toys can also be placed on the top rack of the dishwasher.

Remember, it’s always best to discard your wooden rattle when you start to see the first sign of wear and tear.
