The famous psychoanalyst Freud believes that the main way for babies under 1 year old to obtain various desires is through the mouth, including sucking, eating and drinking, and eating hands. This period is called the oral period. If the appetite cannot be satisfied, the baby will often be irritable, crying, drooling, and sometimes bite anything they can touch.
Many mothers worry that their babies will be prevented from eating badly. If they cannot pass the oral period smoothly, they may have certain psychological problems as adults, such as relying on smoking, chewing gum, and constantly talking to seek safety. In fact, the best teether for molars can solve this problem.
Physiologically, teether can massage your baby’s gums, relieve various discomforts during teething, and exercise your baby’s chewing and biting movements. Psychologically, the teether can soothe your baby's irritability and increase the baby's sense of security. Safe baby teethers have great effects on babies at different stages of the oral phase:
The first stage: 2-5 months
The baby needs to seek comfort by sucking. Although the teeth have not officially grown out, the gums will already feel uncomfortable at this time. Some soft teether can relieve the swelling and pain of the baby before teething.
Second stage: 6 months
When most babies are 6 months old, a pair of breast incisors of the lower jaw begin to grow. At this time, the teether can massage the tender breast incisors to relieve discomfort. At the same time, the gum can be massaged. The uneven surface of the gum also stimulates the baby's brain development.
The third stage: grow up and down four teeth
When the baby has 2 upper incisors and 2 lower teeth, the teether will calm the baby's emotions and at the same time let them experience the sensation of chewing.
The fourth stage: 1-2 years old
1-2 years old is the period when babies grow deciduous teeth. At this time, the use of gutta-percha can reduce the swelling and pain of gums caused by large teeth, help strengthen the development of teeth, and exercise chewing ability. Of course, if your baby no longer likes plastic teether, you can also give your baby teeth biscuits to spend this moment.

Some foreign brands of gutta-perchas are not suitable for boiling water for long-term cooking and disinfection due to the material. Mothers need to pay attention to them to avoid aging
