What age will my child start teething?

On average your child will start teething anywhere between 6 months to 2 years of age. Some children start even younger! When teething commences you can expect excess dribble which is not always, but often accompanied with sore swollen gums and a passion for chewing. A great kit to combat teething is to have great dribble bibs to soak up the excess saliva and of course you need teething rings on standby! Teething rings are excellent for your baby to chew on as this is exactly what they are designed for, it is not always safe to allow your child to chew on anything and everything due to the materials and natural deterioration of items, especially items with paint, wheels, ribbons, stuffed items and bean filled items. Love by Chelsea teething rings are designed with safety in mind with minimal attachments and a safe food grade silicone ring which is easily cleaned. To learn more about teething rings have a read on the product description.

Why should I purchase your silicone teething ring instead of wood? 

1. Silicone is softer and more malleable making it more exciting for baby to chew on!  
2. When your baby's gums are sore the silicone ring has a bit of flex, making it softer to chew on than wood.  
3. Silicone is easier to clean, and quick to dry with minimal grooves and no chance of dents or chips in the future which makes it much more hygienic, durable and safe 
4. Wood is porous and has the potential to harbor bacteria which is not visible, silicone however is not and can not harbor bacteria when cleaned properly. 
5. Wooden rings have the potential to naturally decay, weaken and break when dropped or thrown by your baby, where silicone will simply always bounce. 
6. Silicone rings can be placed in the fridge or freezer and hold's the coolness for longer.  
7. Lastly silicone rings are more grippy making it easier for your child to grasp, the extra grippiness also holds onto the fabric preventing the ring from slipping around. 

What is a baby comforter used for?

Comforter's are a great transition tool when beginning child care, going to new places or experiencing potentially unsettling moments. The soft comforter works to soothe senses and provide the child with a sense of belonging, and a little piece of home beside them when they need it the most. The Love by Chelsea Cosy comforter is your baby's new best friend with all the extra comfort your child needs. If your baby has a dummy, the claps section is a great attachment for this and prevents you from loosing the dummy every time it get’s tossed. The most common reason for the Cosy or comforter's is when babies approach 8-9 months of age it is known they go through a strong attachment period to their mother, Cosy's are able to aid this transition especially when it smells just like mum!
