Eco Teethers

blogpost_ecoteethersTeething is a natural part of your baby’s growth and it can be difficult for everyone.  Teethers are great in aiding your baby’s discomfort, but it’s important to choose one that’s safe.  Traditional teethers can contain dangerous things like phthalates or bisphenol A (BPA), which are hormone disruptors linked to obesity, cancer, and early puberty.  They can also contain PVC Plastics which release toxic chemicals both during and after production.  The teethers pictured above are just a few Eco-friendly teethers that can provide your baby with the necessary comfort they need, while being environmentally conscious.  Enjoy!

    Love all of those toys! I make teething rings from wooden rings and fabric. Check them out at Etsy if you get a chance.
