Best Teethers of 2019

Have a drooling baby? You're going to need one of these soothing—and cute!—teethers.Best Teethers of 2019

Sometime between four to seven months you’ll notice your baby drooling, being unusually cranky and wanting to bite down on everything in sight. That’s those new teeth coming in!

Teething is an exciting developmental time, but it does come with some discomfort. Teethers give little ones something besides their fingers, or yours, to chomp on, and they can help soothe sore gums too.

Try one of these chewy teethers to help relieve your baby’s achy gums.

Just Like Fingers

Babies love to teethe on fingers (think: fists in the mouth). That’s why Comotomo developed this teether’s nubs to baby-finger size. Silicone gives it a just-right, chewy texture.

Environmentally Friendly

More than just a gum soother, this lightweight teether rattles too. Your baby can use it as a toy or a teether, and if you stick it in the fridge, the cold plastic will offer extra relief. But the coolest thing about this product is it’s made from 100-percent recycled milk jugs.

Cute and Convenient

Made from 100% food-grade silicone, these teethers come in ridiculously fun and whimsical designs. A beaded string clips to clothes so it won’t fall on the floor, and you can pop the whole thing in the fridge for extra gum numbing.

Reaches Molars

The two “bunny ears” on this teether reach all the way back to the molar area to ease your little one’s gums wherever they feel bad (molars come in later, between 13 and 18 months, so it’s also good for older teethers). The handle is easy for your baby to hold, and the whole thing is BPA and phthalate free.

Infant Toothbrush

It’s never too early to start practicing good dental hygiene. Designed by a hygienist, this flexible, infant toothbrush has soft, silicone bristles to swipe particles from existing teeth and give gums a soothing massage. And kiddos hold it by the banana peels—how cute is that? (Note: Brushies is another baby toothbrush we like.)

Babylist Loves It

This sunny teether friend is made from 100-percent non-toxic rubber, with a nubby body for front teeth and a leafy crown and rounded feet for cutting molars to chomp on. And for every Polly Pineapple teether purchased, the company makes a donation that will feed a hungry American child for an entire week.

A Wood Choice

Made from bacteria-resistant maple hardwood, this adorable hedgehog is completely organic and satin smooth. Use the ribbon clip to secure the teether to a car seat or stroller, and you’ll never have to worry about it dropping on the floor.

A Refreshing Bite

These water-filled teethers are like ice packs for your baby’s sore gums. Chill them in the refrigerator—biting on the cooler-temp teethers can help reduce gum tenderness. (Note: putting them in the freezer can make them too hard and cold for little ones). And they’re a great value, too, with three to a pack.

The Classic

Sweet Sophie offers up her super-flexible ears, horns and legs for your baby’s chewing pleasure. Made from natural rubber and food paint, this teether has been popular in France and abroad for some 55 years. Sophie the Giraffe is lightweight and easy for tiny hands to grip, has a fun squeaker inside and her body is made of contrasting colors wee ones can actually see. Be careful not to get water in the hole when cleaning, as mold may grow inside the Sophie.
