Textured terry cloth. Bold, high contrast colors attract baby's attention. Soak, wring, and freeze for small gums. Texture stimulates gums where teeth are breaking through.
Developmental Insights: At 3 months, babies communicate by cooing and babbling. At 6 months, they begin to repeat syllables. Teethers help baby become more aware of their mouths. This awareness is necessary for emerging babble sounds.
Interaction Idea: Offer the baby the Terry Teether to explore the various textures and shapes with her mouth. Hold the teether in front of baby, so she can see the shape and begin to feel the textures.
