Did you know that February, among other things, is National Children's Dental Health Month? I sure didn't. When I had my first child, like most first time Mothers. I didn't know to much, like how a child should start seeing a dentist by age one and how important teething and care of those newly formed teeth was.
Teething is one of the inevitable challenges of parenthood. Every child will experience it at different times and stages, but rarely will a child skip it entirely. Teething is such an important part of baby’s development. Baby teeth allow an infant to eat a good diet, allow for proper jaw growth, give the face its form and appearance, assist in the formation of proper speech, and most important, act as "space savers" for adult teeth.
Teething to us as adults is usually the part of your child growing we would rather skip. So who knew what an important roll teething plays. Even after four children, just when I thought I knew it all, this was news to me. So with all this new information I learned this also meant that choosing the right teether for your baby is critical to their teeth development.
This is where Bright Starts comes to mind. Bright Starts is an innovating brand of juvenile products that provides parents with smart, fresh solutions. Bright Starts has an incredible, inventive, stylish, and quality line of teethers. I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to tell you about a few.
First I will start off with Bright Starts Chill and Theethe, theether's. These classic Teether's are just what babies need to help sooth and numb their gums. Chill and Teethe, Theether's are water-filled teethers to soothe baby’s gums, are fun colors and textures, easy to grasp and sold in an assortment of three per set.
These "classic" teethers where always favorites of mine. A couple of minutes in the fridge to "chill" them just enough that they are not quite cold enough for baby not to be able to hold, but still chilled enough to soothe the gums. Between the "chill" and textured bumps. These are a must have for every Mom and baby.
Snuggle And Teethe teethers have that cute factor about them. With teether feet to soothe baby’s gums, soft plush bodies to cuddle, and crinkle bellies that encourage baby to touch, the Snuggle And Teeth is a great combination of fun and soothing. Give them a shake and they rattle too!
My children always loved snuggly teethers, but I found a good washing on the gentle cycle about every other day was a good practice. Since besides the soothing teether feet, the face, arms, and bellies often find there way into little teething mouths as well.
The Teethe And Read was a "new" teether to me. My children had never had one quite like it. Designed to spark an early appetite for reading. Features: Colorful fabric pages that take baby on a fun adventure with Bright Starts characters, two textured teether tabs to help soothe baby’s gums, while wavy book spine with clacking beads capture their imagination.
I loved the idea behind this teether. No better time to spark the love a good book then from birth.
Lastly we have the Pretty In Pink Teether Beads. As a Mother to 3 boys before the Princess, you must know if it was pink it had to be in our home. This is what started my love affair with Bright Starts, their "Pretty in Pink" collections. We have had many additions of Bright Starts "pink collection" products in our home. I could believe when I had my daughter, how hard it was to find pink products that met my style and need for quality, until I found Bright Starts. And when I found out that portions of the proceeds from sales of the Pink Collection went to support Breast Cancer research... I was forever sold.
The Pretty In Pink Teether is made of colorful beads to soothe babies gums on a flexible ring. This teether is easy for smaller babies to grasp, colorful and fun. Once again a portion of proceeds from the sale of this teether being in the Pretty in Pink collection go to support Breast Cancer Research. For this, Bright Starts gets a big supportive thumbs up from this Mom!!
Buy It: Chill and Teethe, teethers can be found in Walmart, Target and of course Toys R Us for about 3.99. Snuggle And Teethe, teethers are available at the above mentioned retailers and again at Toys R Us for about 6.99.
