9 diy teethers and teething toys for babies cover

Teething is a difficult time for parents, and also for babies. Its symptoms include excessive drooling, sensitive red gums, inconsolable crying, chewing, decreased appetite, rubbing of cheeks or ear, rashes around the mouth or neck, and decreased appetite. To help your baby during this difficult time, you may give him or her a teething toy. Firm rubber and unfinished wooden teething rings are great for older teethers because they are nearly bite-proof. I’ve prepared some DIYs to make such a toy easily, let’s take a look.
