What are the best baby teething toys to buy in 2023?

Teething can be quite a challenging period for your baby as their first teeth are slowly coming out. Teething causes sore gums, red cheeks, and constant dribbling as your baby is trying to cope with their new teeth.

Teething toys or “teethers” are specially designed toys that your baby can put in their mouths and help them relieve gum soreness and pain. A cool little tip is to put the teethers in the fridge as the cold surface will provie extra soothing to swollen and itchy gums.

There are tons of options on the market when it comes to baby teething toys so we tried and tested the most popular teethers on Amazon and curated a list with the best teething toys you can buy right now.
