Don't Let Your Baby Chew on Just Anything--Get An Eco-friendly Teething Toy Instead
April 6, 2011
Is it so unreasonable to require that teething toys that don’t contain lead, chemicals, or harsh dyes? Our children are sucking and chewing the crap out of these things, after all.
Sadly, you’d be surprised how many teething toys include gross chemicals you’d never want to put in your own mouth, let alone your baby’s. So in an act of service to new moms everywhere, here are 4 eco-friendly teething toys your baby can safely sink his/her teeth into.
Besides being the cutest things you’ve ever seen, these Veggie Teethers ($6) from Under The Nile are made of soft, organic cotton without chemicals or pesticides.
If your baby seems to like hard toys, but you don’t want to risk regular plastic, these Green Sprout Teething Keys ($8) are not only PVC-, phthalate-, BPA- and nitrosamine- free, but they’re also made from eco-friendly materials.
Wooden toys are a good, natural choice to gnaw on, and this wooden ring ($12) by Haba is smooth and completely non-toxic.
If you like to throw your teethers in the freezer, look for one like this Natursutten Chill-It Teether ($10). It’s made from non-toxic EVA plastic.
