As I slowly began to integrate into motherhood, I kept hearing from experienced moms “Oh just wait for teething” and I had no clue what I was in for! While I know baby Harrison is only at the very start of this phase, I can tell that teething will certainly be a challenging journey for us as first-time parents. As we went through more and more bibs trying to catch drool, I knew it was time to order some teething tools to help soothe my poor little guys’ gums! Here is a list of some of the best teething tools for your baby, we’ve tried thus far, and one’s I can’t wait to try!

Before I had even purchased this teething tool, I had heard so much about it from other moms! Giving babies a tougher silicon toy that also introduces them to the concept of bristles are wonderful for developmental skills and soothing feelings.
This teether is perfect for younger babies, around 3-4 months old. The pacifier-like design is familiar for the babies, while offering comfort when their gums are sore or inflamed from teething. Made from 100% soft food grad silicone, this teether tool is one I would recommend as your first for your little one.
I have noticed that Harrison absolutely LOVES chomping down on things that are cold, understandably so if his little gums are hurting! These Nuby Ice Gel teethers have varying surface textures to soothe and when put in the refrigerator, creates an “ice-like” feeling for the sore mouths. I also love that these keys can help with Harrisons fine motor skills a well in terms of picking up and bringing them to his mouth!
If you’ve checked out some of my other baby essential posts you’ll know we LOVE Comotomo products! I discovered this teether after it was recommended by a friend who is a speech pathologist! The easy-to-hold shape of the teether is ideal for young babies who are still developing their hand-eye coordination. We love attaching this to Harrison’s pacifier clip so we can keep it close all day!
Someone might need to stop me before I buy every variation of this teether because I think they are the absolute cutest! We love the pineapple one because of all the holes that Harrison can grasp onto but a few other favorites include the coffee cup (duh) and the cactus! Made from non-toxic food grade silicon and BPA-free, I know we will keep these teethers around for a long time!
While Harrison’s hands are still slightly too small for this, I can’t wait until he can use them the way they were meant to function! He loves to grab onto the whole mitt now, but with his fingers constantly in his mouth, this teething tool is genius! There is an adjustable strap to make sure it won’t fall off of your baby’s hands and are machine washable (two of my favorite words!).
Sometimes, a cute teething toy just does NOT cut it. We have heard and seen first-hand some really great success that has come from using Orajel baby! I love that this specific pack comes with both daytime and nighttime cooling gels that are both sugar, gluten, dairy, and artificial flavor-free!
