Since babies love to chew on things like blankets, stuffed toys and baby books, the teether is a better and safer option for babies than choosing their own object. Babies start teething between 3 to 12 months of age. As the tooth develops, it pushes through the baby's gums causing local irritation, swelling and pain. Teething is a very stressful and difficult stage of development with the added problems of sleepless nights, grumpiness, biting, heavy drooling and inconsistent feedings since sucking from the breast or bottle feeding brings more blood to the area causing pain.
