There is a set of teething keys that have gel in them. On the package it says do not freeze, sanitize (boil), or put them in the dishwasher. There are several Amazon reviews bitching about how they exploded after being put in the freezer.

Edit: Amazon link, sort by 1 star. The stupid is real.

u/ernieball · 21 pointsr/beyondthebump

Some of these comments are hilarious. I have a [munch mitt]( and a nuby mitt and my 5 month old son loves them. Does he still chew his hands? Absolutely. Does he still suck his thumb? Allthetime. The mitts are certainly not necessary - they're more a toy that serves multiple purposes. They change it up so baby doesn't get bored - I can sit my son in his high chair and strap it on and he'll spend time crunching the crinkle paper and biting the silicone part while I do the dishes. It's nice because he can't drop it. Sometimes I'll run it under water and toss it in the fridge so it's cooler on his gums. They're easy to wash - I just toss it in with his clothes in a mesh bag. I've not regretted buying them, that's for certain.

u/saf621 · 7 pointsr/beyondthebump

The Winkle toy was my son’s absolute favorite thing to play with starting around 12 weeks old.

u/mamaetalia · 7 pointsr/Parenting

Have you talked to her ped at all?

Beyond that, there are legit children's chew toys that you could get her and make a big deal about it being the best most awesome thing to stick in her mouth ever, and always redirect her to one so she's got something safe.

My son has a couple of these (Chewy Tubes Super Chew Knobby, 2 Pack that we used to give him when he was in this mode.

u/raisinsdelight · 6 pointsr/breakingmom

Meet fishy, fishy big balls. My husband and I giggled like little girls everytime our daughter played with this at Granma's house.

u/es88 · 6 pointsr/beyondthebump

Sophie the giraffe is always a popular choice, but expensive. My LO has liked these keys.

She really seems to prefer chewing on fabric though. Wet washclothes are a favorite.

u/littledinos · 6 pointsr/beyondthebump

I don't have a ton of toys, but my baby loves this thing:

He also really digs his exersaucer/jumperoo (similar to this, but you can pick one up at a yard sale for like $15 or less:, which has different toys all around the rim and allows him to jump up and down endlessly. He hated his swing, is meh on the bouncer seat, but has a ball in this.

u/Jen_Snow · 5 pointsr/Parenting

Not that it applies now and you probably have seen it, but when Toddler_Snow started teething at ~4 months, we got him a teething blanket. I only say something because I had no idea it existed before then. I'm just trying to share the tools.

u/sewmanybees · 5 pointsr/beyondthebump

My son is 7 months old, I stay at home with him and heres what we like: Books, These stacking cups , this annoying cube , this tactile ball , we've had this one for longer but he still loves to chew on it and shake it around , he also likes to chew on and cuddle with any fabric so maybe more muslin swaddle blankets (if you don't already have enough!), plus they can double as burp cloths! Also, when it get closer you could ask for seasonal clothes in the right size (my son has been in 9 month outfits since 5 months so you might want to wait to be sure of sizing).

u/Redshirt_Down · 4 pointsr/Parenting

I got these for my 10 month old and will use frozen blueberries, mango, even just crushed up ice and she really likes it. Super easy to clean and use too, I just keep containers of crushed up fruit and such in the freezer and pop it in whenever she needs it.

u/WaterBearDontMind · 4 pointsr/BabyBumps

There is no rush to buy toys as others have said. Tummy time should begin at birth and you could try to get toys that will hold LO’s attention in that position before they learn to reach for things:

  • B&W books like this one
  • A mirror that can be propped vertically at infant eye level
  • A tummytime pillow in the same shape as Boppy but smaller, goes under newborn armpits

    Next up would be a playard (the Kick n Play Piano one was super popular in our Bumper group) to hang things overhead that they’ll eventually bat at or kick. The Manhattan Toys with lots of strings or loops are great first toys to grasp. You might also like some plastic chain links, which can be toys/teethers on their own at first and graduate to tools for tethering toys in the stroller/car seat.
u/TheHatOnTheCat · 4 pointsr/beyondthebump

My baby is almost 5 months.

Toys: she loves all mobiles/activity gym hanging toys. She actually is starting to enjoy some other toys that she manipulates with her hands but only when she is sitting up, which she can't do alone yet. So in her carseat/stroller, sitting between my legs, propped up in back with a pile of blanket, or most of all in her high chair. Her high chair makes her so much more interested in using her hands to explore things (I do see that it's a better position, the tray holds it up and she can't always do that herself so she can move ti around).

We have the ANTILOP high chair from Ikea which was only $20 and is awesome! Another $6 for the PYTTIG high chair support pillow which is comfy, easy to clean, and helps her be in the right position to use the tray. Her favorite baby toy to hold is the Skwish Classic Rattle and Teether Grasping Activity Toy. She got a bunch of different baby toys at Christmas and loves this. It is one of the few wooden toys she can mange to hold and manipulate yet. She likes to chew it too. She can also manage to grab Oball products and hold the lighter Oballs. She likes the rattle ball. She also just really likes to chew on cloth, this includes cloth and crinkle cloth books.

I read books to her. Yes, some board books but those are super short and pretty boring. I learned you can get up to 50 books at a time from our local library! So just a pile of kids of books and I read her a few. I like to do this facing a mirror so I can watch her face and read to her with her in my lap.

She loves walks int he stroller and being baby worn in her Boba baby carrier when she gets fussy in the stroller. I can also use the Boba to carry her while doing something else or to get her to fall asleep during the day not on my lap. (Yeah, I need to figure this out.) Outside is always a treat to her and going even boring places like the grocery store makes her alert and somewhat excited.

Curious to see what other people post.

u/greenbeantime · 3 pointsr/beyondthebump

Chewy Tubes makes something similar. I've never tried their products, but I've heard from a few people that the Chewy Q's are quite nice, so I'm betting the knobby chews are good too. Maybe search for "knobby" as well?

u/Odellia · 3 pointsr/BabyBumps

Mine really liked the Munch Mitt when he was too little and uncoordinated to handle most tethers.

Munch Mitt Teething Mitten - The Origianl Mom-Invented Silicone Teether Mitten with Travel Bag - Ideal Teething Toys for Baby Shower Gift - Green Polka Dot

The Sophie teething ring is also great.

Sophie la Girafe So Pure Teething Ring, Very Soft Version

u/BigBlackHawks · 3 pointsr/beyondthebump

Ideally you don’t want baby in the car seat for more than 2 hours at a time without taking a break.

For toys... get some new toys to introduce on the drive. Some ideas off the top of my head from that age are things that shake a make noise (you can put some dry rice in a sealed container and it makes a cheap shaker), touchy feely books like jellycat books like this or this, large silicone straws, multi textured balls, winkle toy

u/KellySmithPhotos · 3 pointsr/beyondthebump

We were the same way. Our dentist suggested these spiffies. We do teeth then bedtime routine with bottle and then wipe her teeth before she falls asleep. They worked well till we cut out her bedtime bottle and didn't need to do it abymore.

u/guinnessmom · 2 pointsr/Mommit

amen to the no amber necklace request! lol silly. We got our LO this vibrating teether and she seemed to really enjoy the vibration of it on her gums. Not sure of the age of your little one, but it took a little bit of practice for her to understand that she needed to apply pressure to get it to vibrate.

u/SincerelyToria_ · 2 pointsr/Parenting

My sons first tooth didn't pop up until almost ten months old. The week it happened he would wake up SCREAMING at night from being in pain and he had a low grade fever. But once the first one came, the evenings haven't been nearly as bad and he has two more teeth now. He sucked on a lot of crushed ice to ice the gums and keep his mouth cool.

u/ntcummings42 · 2 pointsr/woodworking
  1. There are a lot of old (and old-style) frame saws that used rope to create counter-tension to a blade on the other side of the stretcher. You could set up something like that.
  2. Follow this link to learn about tensegrity, AKA the reason this baby toy can exist.
u/binderclips · 2 pointsr/BabyBumps

Winkle or Lots of Link. She can hold them similarly to an oball but the shape allows her to get a bite in her mouth too.

u/annalatrina · 2 pointsr/beyondthebump

This one is pretty great.

u/meow_meemeez · 2 pointsr/beyondthebump

Yeah! I've seen them recommended on here before, so I figured why not give them a try! I'm having serious doubts that my son will give up his beloved right hand though.

u/risorius12 · 2 pointsr/beyondthebump

Our daughter was around that age last year and we got her a teething toy and Indestructibles books which are good for both reading and chewing!

u/7thAndGreenhill · 2 pointsr/Parenting

He might be teething. Our LO loved the munch mitten

u/snailrabbitflamingo · 2 pointsr/Mommit

During this stage, I used "treasure baskets" a lot. I tried to keep one in each room that kiddo spent much time in. And I had basic categories of toys that I kept in each basket.

  • Something that rolls

  • Something that rattles

  • Something soft

  • Something to chew

    And “toy” didn’t always have to be a toy in the traditional sense. For a rolling object, we used balls but also used shower puffs. Something soft might be a small stuffed animal, or it might be a fuzzy sock. We let kiddo's interests guide this process. If he found something fascinating and it was safe for him to play with, we put it in a basket. If it wasn’t safe, we tried to find something similar that was safe.

    Some of kiddo's favorite toys from this time:

  • Baby shoes

  • Jicaro nut

  • Vuvuzela

  • Plastic tubes

  • Weighted wobble toy

  • Small car

  • Shower puffs

  • Egg shaker

  • Hacky Sack

  • Teether

    Once he was crawling and becoming interested in the kitchen cabinet, we emptied one cabinet out for him to play with. We put some baby-safe containers and dishes inside, and let him do whatever he wanted.

    We really didn’t buy much in the way of toys for this stage. A few hand-me-downs, and a few stuffed animals. Nothing really worth noting.
u/Sassy_Pants24 · 2 pointsr/IFParents

My babies have been viciously chewing on their hands and drooling since about three months too. No teeth yet though. Have you seen the munch mitt?

Munch Mitt Malarkey Kids, Aqua Blue, One Size

u/Gryphon82 · 2 pointsr/breastfeeding

We have this teether, the little nubs are baby-finger-sized, my daughter likes to get two of them in her mouth at once, lol.

u/who__whatwhat · 2 pointsr/beyondthebump

I had success with the Comotomo silicone teether. It's easy to hold and my LO was able to chew on the angled fingers without having to hold the teether just right, which was a struggle with other teethers. Worked the first time I put it in LO's hand!! I was so happy and relieved that LO could finally chew on something and that it was easy to maneuver no matter how it was held.

u/TheMarlieJane · 2 pointsr/beyondthebump

At that age, the best toys seemed to be the ones he could get his fingers into to help him grip them. The Oball rattle was his favorite, and he liked the Comotomo teether too.

u/elizalemon · 2 pointsr/RIE

Quality thick blankets for laying on, a pack and play in the living area as a safe space away from pets, sibling.

I only used the bouncy seat in the bathroom so she was safe and cozy but within eyesight.

The only toys she liked under 6mo were chewy toys, silicone or other flexible rubber toys. Comptomo teether

Manhattan Toy Winkel Rattle & Sensory Teether Toy

u/sunriseslies · 2 pointsr/beyondthebump

We tried to use a pacifier because 1. we were gifted tons of them before he was born and 2. he used one during his NICU stay and his second hospital stay at one month. It really helped during those times when my ability to physically comfort him was limited. Then he just grew out of it when he was about 2.5 months old. No idea why. We tried a little to reintroduce it now that he's teething to see if it would give him some relief (and because of this research that says they reduce the risk of SIDS because he has a health condition that raises his risk) but he's not game. He's found other ways to help him self sooth though. He loves to nom on his plushys, those old school ice teethers and his buggy loop.

u/jeremypr82 · 2 pointsr/Dentistry

Fluorosis is very common actually, but for the most part it's not very noticeable. I wouldn't worry about it, just try not to let your child swallow much fluoride toothpaste before they reach age 7ish. It's not like it's a one-off failure, it needs to happen consistently for it to be noticeable. It sounds like you're doing well. If you want to really stay on top of their oral health, you should start using xylitol products. Xylitol kills the bacteria that causes cavities and prevents plaque from forming on their teeth, among a number of other beneficial properties. The goal is to try and get 5 applications per day.

These wipes are really good for small children/babies after a meal/bottle:

Xylitol bulk sugar would be the most cost effective method, you could roll their pacifier in it, or sprinkle it on something else, directly into the mouth, etc:

u/ChaniB · 2 pointsr/beyondthebump

It's only recommended that babies use jumpers for max 15 minutes a day, so I wouldn't buy something that I could only use for that short amount of time. My baby is 5 months old and in the last month I bought the foam puzzle mat pieces that I can arrange on the floor and let her roll around. I propped up a cheap door mirror sideways on the wall so she can look at herself while rolling on the mat, and she loves to stare at herself and laugh. I also have a few different small toys for her. The favorite for the past few weeks has been this one:

u/vigorousflailing · 2 pointsr/February2018Bumpers

He loves any of the Lamaze stuffed animals since they have bright colors and different textures. We have the monkey, cat, turtle and firefly (favorite is the firefly). He also loves this thing because he can grab it easily and stick it in his mouth.

u/slipstitchy · 1 pointr/beyondthebump

My LO has a Sophie teething ring in her crib (not the giraffe). Sometimes on the monitor I'll see her wake up, grab it and wave it around in the air before falling back to sleep, it's pretty cute. We gave it to her when we sleep trained at 5 months and put her in her own room. I'll consider a small lovey for night sleep when she can crawl. I don't think I'll ever put a blanket in her crib, it doesn't seem safe to me.

u/e9r0q2eropqweopo · 1 pointr/Parenting

I agree that baby play mats are great, and you can never have too many books. Lift the flap books are especially good for babies under 1.

For a bouncer/play saucer I really liked the Fisher-Price Rainforest Jumperoo. It is a bit pricey, but my daughter looooved it. Hundreds of hours of entertainment, and a good place to leave the baby while you use the bathroom or whatever. We also got a hand me down non-bouncing play saucer and she didn't like it nearly as much.

For a noise machine I really liked the Munchkin Nursery Projector and Sound System. It is reasonably cheap ($20), it shows a soothing slowly moving projected image, it plays a good variety of sounds, and it is voice activated so you can set it to turn on if your baby wakes up. You can also use just the white noise on a timer with the other features off, so it is like a white noise machine with some good bonuses.

Since it sounds like you walk a lot, you also might think about getting a baby carrier that will be good for when your daughter gets bigger and heavier. I have found the Ergo really comfortable, and you can keep using it up to 45 lbs. My daughter is 27 lbs and I am 5 months pregnant and it is still comfortable. (I only used the moby a little bit, but it seemed better suited for smaller babies. I might be wrong about that.)

As far as smaller toys go, my daughter's all time favorites were the Kids Preferred Amazing Baby Blanket Teether Bear and the Nuby Bug A Loop.

u/puppersandmeow · 1 pointr/February2018Bumpers

We have this rattle and she loves it. Easy to grab, chewable, and was a staple for most babies when I worked in childcare

u/RegularOwl · 1 pointr/beyondthebump

[This is the toy my baby was able to use earliest because it's easier for little babies to hold the "stem"] ( she prefers the flower one over the other version (we have both)

u/sameasaduck · 1 pointr/beyondthebump
u/shadeofmyheart · 1 pointr/beyondthebump

I recommend this one:

My 4 month old loves it because she doesn't have the dexterity to put something in her mouth directly yet (except her hands.. She LOVES to shove those in there). This one is great because she can just pull it towards her and something chewy will land in her mouth.

u/SuzieQ4624 · 1 pointr/Parenting

Give him something cold to chew on, a little Tylenol or orajel for the pain and take a breather.

Like these teething toys u put in the freezer

Or this baby teething gel to numb the pain

u/ADKitten · 1 pointr/beyondthebump

My son is almost 6 months (this Friday!) and he loves this teething blanket. There's a crinkly corner that he adores chomping down on. :)

u/jennybean42 · 1 pointr/aspergers

> If you would have read some of my other replies. I've stated that I've given him teethers.

Following up with this advice, I'd totally recommend this one:

It worked great with my son.

I'd also suggest trying to do as much self care as possible. Do you have someone who could come over and help you? If you had PPD, you might want to see your doctor as well and talk about some of these feelings.

I wish you the best.

u/amaltheas2 · 1 pointr/beyondthebump

Baby E loves it, it's one of the few toys that she hasn't "moved on" from. As far as teethers go, this fish teether is by far her favorite, once it thaws out, Sophie is her second favorite.

u/kghyr8 · 1 pointr/Dentistry

Start wiping off the teeth after every nursing. You can use a clean washcloth or look for something like Spiffies (

If the decay is progressing then the absolute best thing is to have the dentist apply Silver Diamine Fluoride. It's the best way to kill the bacteria and arrest the decay. Caries can progress rapidly in little ones. Fluoride varnish is good, and can be applied every 3 months, but SDF is more effective at arresting decay.

I would do a 3 month evaluation and keep on a 3 month schedule just to follow her closer. You'd have a better chance of catching the progression. That being said, going to the dentist doesn't prevent cavities. That can only be done at home. You've got to be vigilant at cleaning the mouth frequently and reducing how often she has milk (breastmilk or otherwise) in the mouth.

u/Elleandbunny · 1 pointr/beyondthebump

Sophie the giraffe - this is the very soft, but we prefer the soft version. The rings made it easier to hold, and seemed to keep its cool longer than other teethers we had. Also, no holes for mold to grow.

Silicone finger toothbrushes, and baby banana toothbrushes as his teeth came in.

Toys with silicone teethers (on ends or dangling) were also good.

u/CriticalJade · 1 pointr/beyondthebump

My sons top 4 (in no particular order):

Comotomo Teether




u/Comfyjamjams · 1 pointr/beyondthebump

It is hard to know what each individual baby will like at different phases, but having a variety at your disposal is very helpful.

This is one of the first things my daughter liked

She also liked this one early on

As time went by, she wound up liking munchkin frozen gel ones (used with a pacifier leash)

And the comotomo one with the “fingers”

We had baby banana for a first toothbrush and it doubled as a well loved teether

Eta - also soft books, especially the ones with dangly silicone shapes for teething were huge in those early months. Have plenty!

u/peripheral77 · 1 pointr/daddit

7 monther here. Yep, teething. They may not have erupted yet but they’re coming.

The amber necklace has helped with the drool but not eliminated.

We keep a couple of teething rings in the freezer and she loves to gnaw on them. The cold helps a lot plus she can chew.

It’ll get better. We have two teeth coming out and another we think on the way.

If the drool is bad bad just slap a bib on the baby and it’ll at least keep the clothes dry(ish). Cheers!

u/BobLoblaw_ · 1 pointr/Parenting

A Sqwish! is great because the baby can grasp it very easily. I have a 20 month old and I'm getting one for my 1 month old niece.

u/DoublePlusGoodly · 1 pointr/beyondthebump
u/spacepiratetabby · 1 pointr/beyondthebump
u/dinahsaurus · 1 pointr/BabyBumps


Also soft things with nubs and tags are loved

u/ThePaleMare2 · 1 pointr/NewParents

This post really warmed my heart! I have an almost 6 month old right now, so we are in similar stages.


A lot of people already covered sleeping and eating. Right now our boy is teething too and he loves the Nuby brand teethers. We have a couple that look like keys and one that is like this:

He loves to rub them over his gums (or we did it for him before he got the coordination to do so himself). He really likes it when we put them in the fridge so that they get chilled (but never the freezer since that can cause burns).

u/snowboo · 1 pointr/beyondthebump

These. We leave them in the freezer till we need them.

u/Icy_candy · 1 pointr/beyondthebump

I found this store brand name teether made out of silicon, it is a ring, which my 5 months old son can hold easily with his tiny hands, he only puts that in his mouth, and nothing else, you can find similar ones one amazon

u/peejaysayshi · 1 pointr/beyondthebump

My baby loved (and still loves at 5mo.) the Skwish. He can hold it super easily. He liked the Oball too but he would get frustrated with it a lot because he can't get it into his mouth, where the Skwish is easy to jam on in there.

u/amuhlou · 1 pointr/beyondthebump

We introduced a couple toys and the play gym at that age. I attached extra toys to the play gym to keep things interesting. You will be surprised how fast the grasping happens!

Tummy time is something we did not do (LO had terrible reflux) that I wish we had. If you prop a mirror in front of baby they will probably like it a lot.

u/wannabezen · 1 pointr/Parenting

Both of my kids started playing with a baby gym at 6 weeks - they loved it. Of course, they'd only play for a few minutes before getting tired at first.

I have loved the toys on this list for my infants, though we never had a tool toy

I also really recommend the winkel - - it was the first toy both of my kids picked up. We also have a variety of rattles and stacking cups.

u/BearDown1983 · 1 pointr/daddit

I got this for my daughter after our very first daddy-daughter errand day. (She was good - didn't cry and just chilled in the Baby Bjorn while I went shopping, so this was a "reward" - read: it was an excuse for me to buy her a toy.)

She was 2 months old then, 4 months old now... It's consistently been her favorite toy. It has a soft rattle, is easy for her to grip, and apparently tastes pretty good as well.

u/SrslyYouToo · 1 pointr/BabyBumps

I have a 6 month old right now... We have a ton of toys but here are a few examples of the only stuff he plays with right now.


Monkey teether



He loves anything that crinkles, we have a crinkle book that came with his baby gym, that he doesn't like being under.... But he loves that book.

This can also wait too, but I highly recommend one of these, we started putting him in this thing at 4 months with a box under him so he could reach, he loves this thing and could bounce in it for hours.

u/JoslynMSU · 1 pointr/AskParents

So is the 6 month old starting to crawl yet or showing an interest? Some of my son's former favorites:

learn and play zoo This one was great because it was the only way for him to do tummy time

Manhattan toy company sensory thing It was just great for him to learn grasping and made a rattle. Wonderful in the car

Mortimer the moose Just a simple toy that makes noises (bell in one hoof, squeeker in the body, etc.

play tower May be a little advanced but he will just love watching it and start to understand where to put the balls once he get s a bit older

play cube This one he could sit and play with for a while. It's light so he can pick it up and move it

my personal favorite-spinning tower toy This is a favorite for all ages. A little young at 6 months but he will probably watch it in amazement. My son is now 14 months and understands the concepts well, but before he just loved watching the disks spin. It's been a toy given at many a 1st birthday parties

I hope that gives you a decent start. Good luck!

u/Jess9289 · 0 pointsr/beyondthebump

Honestly, I thought Sophie the giraffe was over-rated, but I caved and bought it anyway. I was right. My son has absolutely no interest in it at all. His favorite teether has always been this - - which is a lot easier for tiny baby hands to grasp. It was the first thing that he could hold.
