Which Teether Material Is The Best One for My Babies?

May. 20, 2022

Wristband Teether

 

We all knew choosing a teether for your little one's aching gums could be so complicated. A teether is an object which when chewed by the babies give relieve to their sore gums. The teethers are available having the different bases such as wooden, BPA-free plastic, natural rubber, and silicone. Which teether material is the best one for my babies? Wooden teether, natural fabrics, or silicone teether?

 

Raised your hand if you have tried to bite your baby teether? I have tried both silicone and wooden, I prefer chewing my bubble gum, but the feeling of biting teether was not that bad and weird, hahaha.  Frankly saying, I like silicone teether better than wooden, but this is my personal opinion apart from what best for my baby. Silicone teether is way cuter than wooden one, colorful and attractive.

 

Avoid any silicone teether that contain BPA, PVC, or phthalates


You'll definitely want to avoid any silicone teether that contain BPA, PVC, or phthalates. Why?

 

BPA or bisphenol-A is a plastics chemical that mimics estrogen and disrupts the body's hormonal systems. It's particularly harmful for pregnant women, babies, and young kids. Though most regulatory bodies, including the FDA, will tell you BPA is safe in the small quantities that appear in plastic products, many companies have chosen to produce and market BPA-free plastics. Excellent! Except for one small detail: Many companies simply replace BPA with BPS — bisphenol-S — which is just as toxic, if not more toxic, than BPA. Bottom line? Just because a product is touted as BPA-free doesn't mean it's safe.

 

PVC or polyvinyl chloride is the third most common plastic in the world — and also the most toxic. It's bad stuff, and you definitely don't want it in something your kids will put in their mouths.

 

Phthalates are chemicals added to plastics to make them soft and supple. (PVC is actually hard and brittle so to make something like a squeezy toy requires the addition of phthalates.) Phthalates don't bond to plastic, though, so they leach out over time. Babies who suck on teethers containing phthalates will be ingesting a known carcinogen. Baby Center has an excellent list of phthalate names so you can check labels.

 

Wooden teether and natural fabrics are in!


If you're super-concerned about plastics or your baby's reactions to rubber, then wood and fabric teething toys are the ones for you. There are plenty of good ones to choose from. The teether made by using wood are safer because of having natural, chemical and plastic free features.

 

So, here are what I can recommend to you - trust me, I've try to chew them, but nothing happened, they just so durable.
