Teething can be rough. Based on recommendations from Healthychildren.org and Seattle Children's hospital (and my experience as a mom), I recommend choosing teethers your kid finds attractive, either good colors, textures, materials, or shapes. Next, store it in the fridge, and when their discomfort makes them fussy, pull out the chilled teether and let the cool soothing help ease their pain. We recommend something solid (such as silicone or natural rubber teethers) or a lovey (a soft fabric item with no stuffing). With a lovey, you can even lightly wet it with cool water to add interest or create a different experience. Make sure to clean any items that your kid puts in their mouth.
