Discover the Perfect Teether to Soothe Your Baby
Embracing the journey of parenthood, every milestone, every change, and every growth spurt of your little one is an occasion to be treasured. And then comes teething. It's a significant phase, bringing a mix of excitement and a bit of concern. Seeing your bub in discomfort can be heart-wrenching, and you may find yourself wishing for something that could provide them with relief. This is where a teether comes in, offering a comforting, gum-soothing solution.
As parents, you yearn for the best for your little one, even when it comes to something as simple as a teether. It's not merely about picking a cute teething toy, but rather about finding the right teether that offers safety, comfort, and relief for your bub.
At Mothercare Singapore, we appreciate the profound role teethers play in your baby's teething journey. Understanding your concerns and needs, we provide a diverse collection of teethers for parents to choose from.
From a giraffe teether that doubles as a charming companion to a wide array of engaging teething toys, our selections cater to your baby's unique needs and preferences.
What to Look For When Buying a Teether?
Choosing the right teether for your baby is more than just selecting an appealing design. Here are some key aspects to consider:
Your baby's teether needs to be durable to withstand constant gnawing and biting. A durable teether will last longer and offer better safety as it won't break into smaller pieces.
2. Ease of Cleaning
Teethers need to be cleaned regularly. Therefore, choose teethers that are easy to clean to maintain hygiene. Silicone teethers are typically one of the easiest options.
3. Design and Textures
Select teethers with varied textures to provide a soothing massaging effect on your baby's gums. An easy-to-grip design is also essential for little hands. Since you may also want to cool the teethers before giving them to bub, you can also buy those designed with a water-filled centre.
Opt for teethers made from baby-safe, non-toxic materials. BPA-free and PVC-free teethers are a safe choice. Options such as natural rubber and food-grade silicone are great to consider too.
We are committed to supporting your journey.

Frequently Asked Questions About Baby Teethers
How do I know my baby is teething?
Babies teething often show increased fussiness, drooling, a tendency to chew on objects, and may have slightly swollen gums. This chewing instinct also plays a role in weaning, as babies explore solid foods. Each baby's experience with teething and weaning is unique and may occur at different times.
Is a teether and pacifier the same?
No, a teether and a pacifier (or soothers) are not the same. A teether is designed to provide comfort to a baby's gums during the teething phase, while a pacifier is used to calm and soothe a baby, such as when they are asleep. We debunk more myths about teethers and soothers on our blog here.
Should I sterilise teethers?
Yes, it's important to sterilise new teethers before use and regularly clean them to maintain hygiene. Consider UV sterilisers from LoveAmme, Tommee Tippee and Philips Avent, which you can easily buy online from our store.
