Shop Baby Teethers for Proper Development
Like all other loving parents, it is only natural for you to want your little one feeling as comfortable as possible. However, that becomes exceptionally important and more difficult during the teething stage. As their tooth penetrates their gum, your little one may feel a lot of discomfort, leading to a restless baby and sleepless nights for both bub and parents.
That's why baby teethers have become a go-to solution for many parents to minimise these outbursts late at night. Usually small and chewable, these toys are designed to provide relief and comfort to your baby as they cope with the pain of their growing canines.
At Mothercare Malaysia, we understand the importance of providing high-quality teethers for babies that are non-toxic, durable, yet gentle enough for your baby's sensitive gums. With Mothercare, shopping for baby teethers online has never been easier.
Benefits of Baby Teethers
When it comes to caring for your baby during their teething stage, nothing is more important than ensuring they feel soothed. With baby teethers, you can provide your little one with a safe and reliable solution that can help ease their discomfort.
But the benefits of baby teethers go beyond just comfort relief - they can also promote the development of important skills while providing entertainment and stimulation for your little one. Here are some of the most notable benefits of using baby teethers:
- Soothe discomfort: Teething may manifest in sore and swollen gums, and a teether provides an effective way for babies to chew and massage their gums. This offers soothing relief that alleviates the pain, allowing them to rest better.
- Promote oral motor skills: Using a teether involves the movement of the jaw, lips, and tongue, which helps babies develop the muscles they need for chewing and speaking. Just attach the teether to their mobile toys and hook them onto the strollers so you’ll never forget them.
- Encourage hand-eye coordination: Babies can practise their hand-eye coordination by holding and manipulating their teethers. Some teethers may also have different textures or shapes, which can provide tactile and visual stimulation, further enhancing hand-eye coordination.
- Safe and hygienic: Baby teethers are designed to be safe for babies to chew on and are made from materials that are easy to clean and sterilise.
- Provide entertainment: Many teethers come in bright, fun colours and shapes that can provide entertainment and stimulation for babies. Babies can also learn to differentiate colours, shapes, and textures while using their teethers.

Frequently Asked Questions about Baby Teethers
When do babies start using teethers?
Babies usually begin teething between 5 to 7 months old, although it can occur as early as 3 months old or as late as 1 year old. Signs of teething include drooling, irritability, and a tendency to bite or chew on objects. As soon as you notice these signs, it's a good idea to introduce a teether that’ll help relieve the discomfort and encourage healthy oral motor development.
What's the difference between a baby teether and a pacifier?
Generally speaking, a baby teether is specifically designed to provide relief to babies during the teething stage. On the other hand, a pacifier or soother is meant to encourage self-soothing behaviours and comfort babies. Both serve important roles in a baby's development, and you may browse our selection online or in-store at Mothercare Malaysia today.
