Best for 3 – 12 month old babies who cannot grasp a standard teether for long periods of time, and made from eco-friendly, non-toxic, Food Grade Silicone (similar to pacifiers/dummies and bottle teats) and saliva-absorbing cotton fabric, these teething mittens have bumps on the silicone for the wearer to rub against painful gums as teething begins and progresses. The mittens also prevent the baby from scratching itself, from excess saliva irritating delicate skin on the face and lessens the chance of a baby developing blisters from thumb-sucking. The velcro straps, at the wrists, secure the mittens on either hand and prevent them from falling off and becoming dirty or being lost. The crackling sound within the fabric is a sound that interests and entertains young babies.
The mittens should be machine washed, preferably in cold water (however, they can even be washed in the dishwasher) and dried in the shade. Teething mittens can be purchased individually or in pairs.
NB. Food Grade Silicone means the mittens are non-toxic, non-sticky, odourless and BPA, PVC, Phthalates, Cadmium and Lead free and Nitrosamine free.
