In order to make our list of Best Teething Toys, each teether had to check these boxes:

This bib-teether combo is revolutionary! When baby’s teeth are coming in, they are usually drooling up-a-storm, so the Neckerchew serves double-duty: as a drool bib, and a built-in teether. The attached BPA-free teething triangle is always easily accessible for baby to chew, and can’t be dropped or lost. The bib is made of 100% absorbent jersey cotton to keep baby dry, and can easily be thrown in the washing machine for cleaning. Add super cute, modern designs and we have a winner on our hands!
Fill the silicone sac of this self-feeder with frozen fruit or an ice cube and watch magic happen! Baby can easily hold onto the handles and suck or bite for immediate relief. It comes with a cap that covers the silicone top so it can be used on-the-go, and it’s far easier to clean then the traditional mesh bag feeders. It comes in 2 sizes to best accommodate your child’s mouth. Give it a try, you (and your baby) won’t be disappointed!

OK, we are big fans of this teething bonbon – it’s so simple, but oh-so effective. You take the soft bonbon, dip the ends in water and toss it in the freezer. When baby seems fussy and needs some relief, simply take it out and let the cool teether knots soothe those sore gums. The bonbon is handmade in Canada with an organic cotton shell, and stuffed with naturally antibacterial lamb’s wool – keeping the center of the teether warm, so baby’s hands don’t get cold. Throw it in the washing machine to clean.

These necklaces not only look fashionable, but keep your little one happy while you’re on-the-go…whether it be soothing their sore gums, or just as a distraction to keep their hands busy.

We love that you can personalize the back of the V-Pendant and the front of the Dog Tag with your child’s name or a special message.
The necklace cords are made from a durable nylon paracord and have an emergency break-away clasp. And all of them are free of BPA, PVC, and Phthalates. High fives all around for a safe teething solution that’s never more than an arm’s reach away.

Her long neck is easy for babies to grasp, and she has lots of interesting parts for them to explore – ears, horns, and those delicious long legs.
